Michelmersh Brick Holdings Plc 

("Michelmersh" or the "Company") 

Grant of Options

Michelmersh (AIM: MBH), the specialist brick manufacturer, today announces that, on 24 December 2019, the Remuneration Committee of the Company approved a new long-term share incentive plan (the "2019 LTIP"). The 2019 LTIP is in line with previous share incentive schemes adopted by the Company and seeks to align the interests of key employees with Shareholders through to 2026.  

Following the approval of the 2019 LTIP, the Remuneration Committee of the Company granted 3,000,000 nil paid options over ordinary shares of 20 pence each in the capital of the Company ("New Options") to the following Directors:

The New Options vest in 2026, subject to achieving annual and cumulative EPS targets between 2021-25 that rise by 3 per cent annually. The existing options held by the Directors vest in 2020 and 2023, and this grant ensures the continuity of long-term incentives.

The Remuneration Committee has also amended the quantum of options issued to the three Executive Directors under the Company's Long-Term Incentive Plan 2017 ("2017 LTIP"). The total number of options has been reduced from 3,750,000 to 3,000,000, with the reduction split equally across the three Executive Directors, and amending the options, previously exercisable at a price of 20 pence per share, to be nil paid. As previously disclosed, the options vest in 2023. Full details on the reduced options is set out below:
