PDMRs' Dealings

 

B.P. Marsh, the niche venture capital provider to high growth financial services businesses, today announces that B.P. Marsh Management Limited ("BPMM"), a company wholly owned by Mr. Brian Marsh, the Executive Chairman of the Company, has today purchased economic interests in 1,421,130 Ordinary Shares in the Company ("JSOP Joint Interests") for 245p per share from the joint beneficial ownership of various executive directors and senior employees of the Company (each an "Employee Participant"). The Ordinary Shares to which the JSOP Joint Interests relate amount to approximately 4.86% of the issued share capital of the Company.

The JSOP Joint Interests that have been purchased by BPMM relate to the non-dilutive jointly owned share scheme that was established on 6th November 2014 and announced by the Company on the same date. On this date the Employee Participants entered into individual Joint Ownership Agreements ("JOAs") with BPMM which were duly approved by the Company's Remuneration Committee on 6th November 2014.

The terms of the JOA included a minimum vesting period of three years and, subject to the Employee Participant remaining employed for this duration, upon sale of the vested shares the proceeds of sale will be divided between the joint owners so that BPMM receives 154.7p per Jointly Owned Share (which represents the Initial Threshold Value of 140p plus a hurdle amount of 3.5% (simple interest) per annum) and the Employee Participant is entitled to the balance of 90.3p per Jointly Owned Share. Alternatively, as is the case here, BPMM can elect to offer to purchase the JSOP Joint Interests from the Employee Participants at the same rate.

The JOAs matured as fully vested on 6th November 2017 and the offer from BPMM was accepted by all Employee Participants in relation to all Joint Interests within the scheme and as such the JOAs have now been terminated.

Further details of the relevant PDMRs' resultant interests in Ordinary Shares are set out below:
