NOTIFICATION OF TRANSACTIONS OF PERSONS DISCHARGING MANAGERIAL RESPONSIBILITIES

 

 

Anna Manz, Chief Financial Officer of London Stock Exchange Group plc (the "Company") was granted an award over shares in the Company as detailed below on 10 August 2021 (the "Award").

 

Consistent with the Company's approved Remuneration Policy (the "Remuneration Policy"), and as set out in its announcement on 25 June 2020, the Company agreed to make the Award to compensate Ms Manz for the forfeiture of her pro-rata bonus award from Johnson Matthey for the financial year 2020/21.

 

This conditional Award comprises 2,900 shares with a face value of £226,374, representing 50 per cent of the forfeited bonus, and will vest on 10 August 2024. The value of the forfeited bonus was confirmed by Johnson Matthey following publication of its 2020/21 annual results.

 

Details of this Award will be included in the Directors' Remuneration Report for the 2021 financial year.

 

In addition, on 10 August 2021 David Schwimmer exercised a nil-cost option granted to him under the Company's Long Term Incentive Plan 2014 and which vested on 9 August 2021. Mr Schwimmer subsequently sold a sufficient number of resulting Company shares to satisfy associated taxes, social security and dealing costs. The remaining shares are subject to the two-year holding period in accordance with the Remuneration Policy.
