SDI Group plc, the AIM quoted group focused on the design and manufacture of scientific and technology products for use in digital imaging and sensing and control applications, announces that it has issued and allotted a total of 500,000 new ordinary shares of 1 penny each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") following the exercise of options by Ken Ford, Chairman.

Following this exercise, Mr Ford subsequently sold 250,000 Ordinary Shares at a price of 188 pence per share on 3 September 2021. As a result of the above transactions, Ken Ford now has a beneficial interest in 1,000,000 Ordinary Shares representing approximately 1.00 per cent of the Company's total issued share capital.

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the 500,000 new Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission") and it is expected that Admission will become effective and trading will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 9 September 2021.

After Admission, the total number of Ordinary Shares in issue will be 99,558,164 and the total number of voting rights will therefore be 99,558,164.
