Arbuthnot Banking Group PLC

("Arbuthnot" or the "Company")

 

Director/PDMR Shareholding

Sir Henry Angest has today acquired 150,500 ordinary shares in Arbuthnot at a price of 14.332 pence per share. Following the purchase, Sir Henry Angest is interested in 8,351,401 shares representing 56.1% of the total voting rights (excluding treasury shares) in the Company.

The seller of the shares was the Arbuthnot Banking Group Employee Share Option Plan ("ESOP"). The Arbuthnot Phantom Share Option Scheme, introduced in June 2016, replaced the existing 1995 and 2006 Unapproved Share Option Schemes. The ESOP therefore no longer requires Arbuthnot shares to settle any options.
