Director/PDMR Shareholding

Marks and Spencer Group plc (the 'Company') announces that on 25 June 2019 it was notified of the following transactions in the Company's Ordinary 25p shares undertaken by directors / persons discharging managerial responsibility ('PDMRs').

1.    Performance Share Plan Award 2019/20

As reported within the Company's Annual Report on 23 May 2019, the Performance Share Plan ('PSP') continues to be Marks & Spencer's primary long-term incentive plan for executives. As a result, awards under the PSP have been made to six PDMRs of the Company.

These awards were granted as conditional shares, the vesting of which is subject to the satisfaction of certain predetermined performance conditions, as well as the continued employment of the participant. Specifically, the vesting of the award will depend on relative Total Shareholder Return (TSR), the Company's Earnings Per Share (EPS) and Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) over a fixed three-year performance period starting on the first day of the financial year in which the award was granted. On vesting, the award is subject to an additional, mandatory two-year holding period. The value of dividends accrued, in the form of dividend equivalents, will be paid at the end of the period (third anniversary) based on the number of vested shares. No consideration was paid for the grant of the award and no price is payable on the exercise of the award. For the purposes of this award, the grant was made at a share price of £2.1206.

2.    2015 Deferred Share Bonus Plan
