S4 CAPITAL PLC

("S4 Capital" or the "Company")

 

Notification of transactions by Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibility ("PDMRs")

 

As reported in the Company's Annual Report and Accounts 2019, in light of the Covid-19 outbreak, the Company's Nomination and Remuneration Committee agreed with the Company's management that bonuses due to them for the financial year 2019 that would normally be paid in cash, would instead be satisfied by the Company by the delivery of shares in the Company (the "Bonus Shares Arrangement").

The Company therefore announces that on 9 October 2020 the following named PDMRs or persons closely associated with such PDMRs ("PCAs") acquired the following ordinary shares of £0.25 each in the Company ("Shares") in connection with the Bonus Shares Arrangement.

The number of Shares acquired was in each case calculated based on the amount of the bonus that would otherwise have been paid in cash and the closing share price of the Company on 20 April 2020, being 183.5 pence per share. The Shares were sourced from the Company's employee benefit trust and therefore no new Shares were issued in connection with the Bonus Shares Arrangement.
