Director/PDMR Option Exercise, Share Transfer

Dealing and Total Voting Rights

 

Creightons plc (LSE: CRL), manufacturers of personal care, beauty, and fragrance products announces that Mr Bernard Johnson, Director, has exercised options issued under the Company's share option scheme (the "Option Scheme") over 200,000 ordinary 1p shares in the Company at 26.80 pence per share, and that Mr Johnson's beneficial holding in the Company after this transaction will be 5,578,844 ordinary 1p shares (8.17% of the expanded share capital detailed below).

 

Mr Johnson has also advised the Company that he has today transferred 36,500 ordinary 1p shares into his ISA at £1.05 per share. This does not alter his total beneficial holding in the Company.

The Company has also issued a further 509,151 ordinary 1p shares to other employees who have exercised options issued under the Option Scheme which is subject to a block listing facility. As a result of these issues, the total number of ordinary 1p shares in issue now stands at 68,361,394 and the total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 68,361,394

The above figure of 68,361,394 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they may determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Following these share issues the Company has the ability to issue a further 6,897,849 ordinary 1p shares under its block listing facility. 

On 18th October 2018, the Company announced that it had granted options over a total of   7,580,800 ordinary 1p shares to 356 employees of companies in the Group and the Company's then eight directors as part of the Company's policy of providing long-term share-linked and tax-effective incentives to all employees and directors of the Group.

These options were granted under the Company's 2014 and 2018 Share Option Plans and at the time represented a total dilution of 12.16% of the Company's total equity. All employees with more than 3 years' service were included in the grant of options. The Board believed this remains an effective way of rewarding service and commitment to the Group and to provide on-going incentives to all employees and directors.
