Employee Share Option Grant

PDMR/Directors' dealings

 

Creightons plc (LSE: CRL), manufacturers of personal care, beauty, and fragrance announces that options over a total of 2,352,000 ordinary 1p shares in the Company have been granted to 95 employees of companies in the Group including 225,000 each to directors of the Company Messrs William McIlroy and Bernard Johnson as part of the Company's policy of providing long-term share-linked and tax-effective incentives to all employees of the Group employees and directors.

These options have been granted under the Company's 2018 Share Option Plan and represent a dilution of 3.4% of the Company's total existing equity. The Board believes this is an effective way of rewarding service and commitment to the Group and to provide on-going incentives to all employees and directors.

The options were issued at 97.73p per ordinary share and can be exercised between the third and tenth anniversary of the 10 November 2021, subject to the option holder's continued employment. No consideration is payable in respect of the grant of these options.

Shareholders will benefit from this grant since it re-enforces the Company's policy of providing long-term share-linked and tax-effective incentives to all our employees.
