Director's Shareholding and Ordinary Shares in Issue


The Board of First Property Group plc (AIM:FPO) announces that the Company has issued from Treasury 13,371 Ordinary Shares of one pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") to Mr Peter Moon, a non-executive Director, in satisfaction of part of his emoluments for the six months ended 30 April 2015.


Under the terms of his appointment Mr Moon is due to receive 40% of his emoluments, equating to £11,000 annually, in Ordinary Shares based on the average closing price of the Company's Ordinary Shares for the five day period following the announcement of the half year and annual results. In this case the average closing mid-price per Ordinary Share for the five business days between 12 June 2015 and 18 June 2015, following the Company's Preliminary results, was 41.13 pence. A similar announcement is expected in February 2016 following the publication of the Group's half year results.


As a result of this allotment of shares, Mr Moon's shareholding in the Company is 385,385 Ordinary Shares, which equates to 0.34% of the enlarged issued Ordinary Share capital.


Following the sale from Treasury, the Company has in issue 114,205,912 Ordinary Shares. The figure of 114,205,912 Ordinary Shares may be used by shareholders as the denominator for calculations by which to determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules. 645,203 Ordinary Shares remain in Treasury.
