WH Ireland Group Plc


(“WH Ireland” or the “Company”)


Exercise of options


The Company announces that options over 14,673 new ordinary shares of 5 pence each in the Company (“Ordinary Shares”) pursuant to the WH Ireland Save As You Earn Scheme (“Options”) have today been exercised by a former employee of the Company, at an exercise price of 46 pence each.  


Application has been made for the 14,673 new Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM (“Admission”). Admission is expected to become effective on 3 April 2014 and the new Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the Company’s existing Ordinary Shares in issue.


For the purposes of the Financial Services Authority’s Disclosure and Transparency Rules (“DTRs”), the issued ordinary share capital of the Company following Admission will consist of 23,813,994 Ordinary Shares with voting rights attached (one vote per Ordinary Share). There are no Ordinary Shares held in treasury. This total voting rights figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interests in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the DTRs.
