Eckoh announces that it has issued 390,000 new ordinary shares in the capital of the Company (the “New Shares”) following an exercise of share options by Ed Johnson; Chief Operating Officer of Eckoh UK and a PDMR of the Company.
The options being exercised were granted under the 2012 Eckoh plc Long Term Incentive Plan ('the plan') and the number of New Shares that ultimately vested was subject to the satisfaction of share price targets which were comfortably exceeded well ahead of the earliest date of exercise, being 1 January 2016. Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the New Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM, with dealings expected to commence on 4 August 2017 ('Admission').
Following Admission, the Company will have a total of 251,923,520 Ordinary Shares in issue each carrying one voting right. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury. Shareholders may use this figure of 251,923,520 Ordinary Shares as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
Subsequent to their issue, Eckoh was notified by Ed Johnson that the New Shares were sold on 24 July 2017 at a price of 46.5p per share (the 'Sale'). As a result of the Sale, Ed Johnson is not holding any ordinary shares in the capital of the Company.
