Employee Share Plan and PDMR Dealings

The Company confirms it has established a Save As You Earn option scheme (the "SAYE Scheme ") which is approved by H.M. Revenue and Customs.

Certain employees (the "SAYE Scheme Participants") of the Group have chosen to participate in the SAYE Scheme, pursuant to which, subject to certain customary conditions being satisfied, they will be able to subscribe for, in aggregate, up to 1,231,965 ordinary shares in the capital of the Company ("Shares") . Certain PDMRs of the Company are SAYE Scheme Participants (the details of which are set out below) . The first subscriptions for this scheme will occur on 27 September 2021.

The SAYE Scheme operates for a three year period after which employees can exercise their option at an exercise price per share of 51.75 pence, although the SAYE Scheme Participants may opt to withdraw from the SAYE Scheme, recovering paid-in funds, prior to that time.
