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 23,181 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 31 October 2014.


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 26 November 2014 and 2 December 2014, following the Company's Interim results, was 31.8 pence. This payment also includes the payment of an additional 5,885 shares in recognition of missed dividend payments arising from the time lag between the measurement period and the issue date of the new shares, dating back to the commencement of Mr Moon's appointment in 2010. A similar announcement is expected in September 2015 following the publication of the Group's Final Results.


As a result of this allotment of shares, Mr Moon's shareholding in the Company is 372,014 Ordinary Shares, which equates to 0.33% of the enlarged issued Ordinary Share capital.


Following the sale from Treasury, the Company has in issue 113,792,541 Ordinary Shares. The figure of 113,792,541 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. 1,058,574 Ordinary Shares remain in Treasury.
