SYMPHONY ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES PLC

("Symphony", the "Company" or the "Group")

Director/PDMR Shareholdings - Option amendments and Grant of Options

Symphony Environmental Technologies Plc (AIM: SYM), a global specialist in products and technologies that "make plastic and rubber products smarter", announces certain amendments to options held by directors of the Company, and also the grant of options to Shaun Robinson and Robert Wigley.

Extension of exercise period of existing options

The Company had previously granted options to purchase 8,441,500 ordinary shares of 1p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") to certain directors of the Company (the "Options").  The Options are due to expire across 2019 and 2020. 

Robert Wigley and Shaun Robinson, non-executive directors of the Company, commissioned an independent remuneration report on the impact of extending or not extending the Options.  The report concluded that it was in the best interests of all shareholders that the exercise period of the Options be extended.  Consequently, Mr. Wigley and Mr. Robinson recommended to the Board, who agreed, that the expiry dates of the Options be extended by 12 or 24 months, and in addition, the exercise price of Options to purchase 1,090,000 Ordinary Shares has also been increased. See PDMR disclosure tables below for further information.  All other terms of the Options remain the same.

Decreased exercise price of existing options

The Company has agreed to decrease the exercise price of options previously granted to Robert Wigley in 2018 to 12.5 pence per Ordinary Share, which is still a 61% premium to the closing price on 18 November 2019. See PDMR disclosure tables below for further information. All other terms of these options remain the same.

Grant of new Options

The Company has also granted options to purchase 1,500,000 Ordinary Shares at an exercise price of 12.5 pence per Ordinary Share to Shaun Robinson and options to purchase 250,000 Ordinary Shares at an exercise price of 12.5 pence per Ordinary Share to Robert Wigley. See PDMR disclosure tables below for further information.
