Share Option Grants / PDMR Dealing

 

Ten Lifestyle Group plc (AIM: TENG), a leading technology-enabled global concierge platform for the world's wealthy and mass affluent, announces a third initiative whereby the Group has granted share options in exchange for voluntary salary sacrifice.

 

The Group continues to drive efficiencies and take cost-saving measures to effectively manage cash whilst Net Revenue is reduced due to lower demand for core services in dining, travel and live entertainment; caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

As such, the Group has offered a third salary sacrifice initiative to its employees and contractors, following the Group's first initiative that ran from March to June 2020 and second initiative that ran from July to November 2020.

 

Pursuant to this third salary sacrifice initiative, the Group has granted options over a total of 2,097,002 Ordinary Shares of 0.1p each, to certain employees and contractors of the Group. For every £1 of salary participating employees and contractors forego over a 4-month period they will receive four options. Over 125 individuals have chosen to participate in the third salary sacrifice initiative. The total cash saving to the Group over the 4-month period will be £0.5m.

 

The third salary sacrifice initiative includes grants of options to 'persons discharging managerial responsibilities' ("PDMRs"), as listed below, with an exercise price of £1.03, exercisable for up to two years from the date of grant (the "Options"). The value of an Option has been determined to be £0.25, using the Black Scholes model for option pricing. The total economic value of those Options granted to the PDMRs is equal to the value of the gross salary foregone over the next four months.

The grant of Options to the PDMRs constitutes a related party transaction under AIM Rule 13 by virtue of the aggregation of the three salary sacrifice initiatives over the past 12 months (the "Related Party Transaction").

 

The independent directors of the Company, being Bruce Weatherill, Gillian Davies and Jules Pancholi, each of whom are not involved in the Related Party Transaction consider, having consulted with the Company's nominated adviser, that the terms of the transaction are fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.

 

The Board considers the benefits achieved by the salary sacrifice initiatives, including cost savings and enhanced employee engagement, are aligned with shareholders' interests. As the participants have waived entitlement to salary in lieu of payment for the share options, with expected net dilution only once the proceeds exceed the value of the salary sacrificed, the Board has considered it appropriate to exclude these options from general headroom limits pursuant to the Company's Share Plans.

 

The notification below, made in accordance with the Market Abuse Regulation, provides further details in relation to these PDMR dealings.
