New Company Share Option Plans

Grant of Share Options


All Things Considered Group Plc (AQSE: ATC), the independent music company housing artist representation and music industry services, announces that it has adopted a Company Share Option Plan ("CSOP") to increase levels of share ownership of the Company by staff, under which all of the Group's eligible employees will be able to participate.

Pursuant to the CSOP, eligible employees within the group will be entitled to receive CSOP options over ordinary shares of 0.01 pence each in the capital of the Company. CSOP options will vest based on length of term of continuous employment with the Company from the second to the tenth anniversary of employment, and are exercisable for a period from three to ten years from the date of grant at an exercise price of 105 pence per CSOP option, being the closing mid-market price on 29 January 2024.

The Company has simultaneously launched an unapproved option scheme designed to incentivise key individuals who work with the Company as consultants or via joint venture structures, but who do not qualify to benefit from the tax advantages of the CSOP. The terms and criteria on which such key business partners will be eligible to receive options under the scheme will largely be in line with the terms and rules of the CSOP, including vesting criteria and exercise price.

In accordance with QCA guidance, a maximum of ten per cent. of the Company's issued share capital will be subject to the option pool at any one time and immediately following the launch of the CSOP and the unapproved option scheme, options over 150,000 ordinary shares representing 1.06 per cent. of the existing issued share capital of the Company will have vested.

No directors of the Company or persons discharging managerial responsibilities (PDMRs) are entitled to receive grants under the CSOP.
