Remuneration of Non-Executive Directors and Total Voting Rights

 

 

Futura Medical plc (AIM: FUM) (the "Company), a pharmaceutical company developing a portfolio of innovative products based on its proprietary, transdermal DermaSys® technology and currently focused on sexual health and pain, announces the issue of 176,318 new ordinary shares of 0.2 pence each ("Ordinary Shares") in respect of the 2020 remuneration of its Non-Executive Directors.

 

In accordance with the terms of their service agreements, the Non-Executive Directors annually receive approximately 30 per cent of their remuneration in the form of Ordinary Shares. For 2020, these were issued at 12.24 pence per share, being the average closing mid-market price of the last 10 trading days of 2019 (as announced via RNS on 22 January 2020).

 

The 176,318 new Ordinary Shares shall rank pari passu with the existing issued Ordinary Shares of the Company and have been issued as follows:

 

Director

Number of Ordinary Shares issued for 2020 remuneration

Total number of ordinary shares held

Percentage of the Company's resulting issued share capital

John Clarke

129,754

642,542

0.26%

Jonathan Freeman

46,564

222,282

0.09%

 

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange and it is anticipated that trading of the new Ordinary Shares will commence on AIM at 8:00am on 20 April 2021.

 

Immediately following the above issue, the Company will have 248,500,971 ordinary shares in issue, each carrying one voting right. Since the Company currently holds no shares in treasury, the total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 248,500,971 and this figure may be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

 

The shares element of the Non-Executive Directors' remuneration for 2021 will be awarded at 14.97 pence per Ordinary Share, being the average closing mid-market price of the last 10 trading days of 2020. The Non-Executive Directors will receive these shares in January 2022.

 

Further details are contained within the notifications below, made in accordance with Article 19 of the EU Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014. Full details of the Non-Executive Directors' remuneration will be included in the Company's Annual Report & Accounts.

About Futura Medical plc

Futura Medical plc (AIM: FUM), is a pharmaceutical company developing a portfolio of innovative products based on its proprietary, transdermal DermaSys® technology. Each DermaSys® formulation is separately patented and specifically tailored for the selected indication and application, as well as being optimised for clinical efficacy, safety, administration and patient convenience. The products are developed for the prescription and consumer healthcare markets as appropriate. Current therapeutic areas are sexual health, including erectile dysfunction, and pain relief. Development and commercialisation strategies are designed to maximise product differentiation and value creation whilst minimising risk. 

 

MED3000 is Futura's topical gel formulation that is a breakthrough treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) through a unique evaporative mode of action. Futura has conducted a Phase 3 study using MED3000 in ED, referred to as "FM57". This was a 1,000 patient, dose-ranging, multi-centre, randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled, home use, parallel group study delivering highly statistically significant results compared to pre-treatment baseline, consistently meeting all co-primary endpoints of IIEF, SEP2 and SEP3 (internationally accepted clinical trial endpoints in ED) with over 60% of patients experiencing a clinically meaningful improvement in their ED.  MED3000 also begins to work immediately in some patients, with 60% of patients seeing onset of their erection within 10 minutes of application.

 

Futura is based in Guildford, Surrey, and its shares trade on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange.  www.futuramedical.com
