Ramsdens Holdings PLC

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

Director/PDMR Shareholding

Ramsdens, the diversified financial services provider and retailer, announces that on 17 March 2022, the Company adopted its Long-Term Incentive Plan 5 (the "Plan"). The Plan follows the principles of the Group's existing LTIPs, in recognising the contribution of the management team for the three years to FY24. The intention to grant the potential conditional awards was disclosed in Ramsdens' 2021 Annual Report and Accounts, published on 17 January 2022.

In accordance with the Group's remuneration strategy, the Plan extends to 21 members of the Senior Management Team, as well as CEO Peter Kenyon and CFO Martin Clyburn (the "Executive Directors"). The awards granted over 1p Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Company (the "Shares") and are under one incentive plan, however the Plan comprises two types of awards, a wholly conditional award Long Term Incentive Plan (the "LTIP") and a Company Share Option Plan (the "CSOP"). Vested awards under the LTIP are exercisable at 1 pence per share and under the CSOP are exercisable at 166.5 pence per share, subject to approval by HMRC.

The Executive Directors have been granted a total of 170,000 shares, to vest in 2025 in accordance with the Plan rules. These shares are subject to the achievement of performance targets, with 50% of any award linked to targeted increases in the Earnings per Share of the Company, and the remaining 50% of any award based on the delivery of the Total Shareholder Return. These targets will be measured over the three financial years to 30 September 2024. These grants represent the maximum possible share awards to the Executive Directors should the performance targets be achieved in full. The Plan rules include malus and clawback provisions.

A further 168,000 shares have been issued pursuant to the LTIP scheme to 12 members of the Senior Management Team, including Mike Johnson (Operations Director) and Jason Carr (IT Director) with the same performance criteria and rules.

In addition, 110,000 shares have been issued under the CSOP scheme to 20 members of the Senior Management Team. These awards have no performance criteria but include malus and clawback provisions. Participants who leave the Company before vesting will lose their award, subject to certain limited 'good leaver' conditions.

The following table summarises the awards issued.
