Plant Health Care plc

("Plant Health Care" or the "Company")

Grant of options in Lieu of Cash bonus

Plant Health Care®, a leading provider of novel patent-protected biological products to global agriculture markets, is pleased to announce an options grant to two Executive Directors on 24 June 2020. In line with previous years, these Directors alongside other senior management of the Company have agreed to receive 50% of their potential 2020 bonus in the form of stock options (the "Bonus Scheme"). As part of the Bonus Scheme, options over a total of 853,659 ordinary shares of 1p each were granted to Jeffrey Tweedy and Jeffrey Hovey, Executive Directors of the Company.  This is required to now be announced due to Jeffery Hovey and Jeffrey Tweedy being appointed to the Board on 1 November 2019.

The Company aims to reduce cash burn as much as possible to shorten the runway to cash break even, and the Bonus Scheme will help reduce the cash burn of the Company significantly over the next twelve months.

The options will be issued under the 2017 Employee Share Option Plan and were made in accordance with the terms of a share option agreement approved by the Company's Remuneration Committee, under which the options have an exercise price of £0.10, have a 10-year life and are subject to performance conditions. These awards will only vest if the Company achieves a certain financial result and if, in addition, specific annual objectives are met as a result the final awards under the Bonus Scheme to the Directors may be less.
