WH Ireland Group Plc


(“WH Ireland” or the “Company”)



The Company announces that options over 5,000 Ordinary Shares were exercised today pursuant to the WH Ireland Group plc Company Share Option Scheme II (“CSOP II”) at a price of 84.5p each, by current employees of the Company.  

Accordingly, the Company has today issued 5,000 Ordinary Shares (the “New Shares”). Application will be made to admit the New Shares to trading on AIM. Admission is expected to become effective on 19 August 2015 and the New Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the Company’s existing Ordinary Shares in issue.

For the purposes of the Financial Conduct Authority’s Disclosure and Transparency Rules (“DTRs”), the issued ordinary share capital of the Company following Admission will consist of 24,501,685 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.

In addition, the Company confirms that its appointed broker is WH Ireland Limited.
