Grant of Options

SpaceandPeople (AIM: SAL) the retail, promotional and brand experience specialist, announces that it has granted options over a total of 100,000 new ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") under its existing share option scheme (the "Options"). The Options have been granted to Andrew Keiller, a person discharging managerial responsibility in the Company.


The Options are exercisable at a price of 13.5 pence per share being the closing share price on 30 September 2019 and vest no earlier than 1 October 2022. The Options expire on the tenth anniversary of the date of grant.


The vesting of the Options is conditional on the continued employment of the option holder as well as the satisfaction of certain financial performance conditions, namely earnings per share performance. The Options will vest in full should the Company achieve an average basic EPS of 2p per annum over the three-year vesting period; however, should a minimum average basic EPS of 0.5p be achieved, 25 per cent of the Options will vest. Above an average basic EPS of 0.5p, the number of Options that will vest will be calculated on a straight-line basis between the minimum 25 per cent. and maximum 100 per cent of the entitlement. No Options will vest if the average basic EPS is below 0.5p.


As a result of this grant, Mr Keiller now holds options over a total of 225,000 Ordinary Shares.


The total number of options now outstanding over Ordinary Shares is 1,807,500 representing 9.26 per cent. of the Company's existing issued share capital.
