Exercise of Options and Total Voting Rights


First Property Group plc (AIM: FPO), the property fund management group, was notified on 7 November 2014 that Mrs Anna Harries, an ex-employee of First Property Asset Management Ltd, exercised 100,000 options over Ordinary shares, granted pursuant to the First Property Group Share Option Scheme, at an exercise price of 16.25p pence per Ordinary share.


The Ordinary shares required to satisfy the exercise of these options were released by the Company from shares held in treasury, following which First Property Group plc's issued share capital remains 114,851,115 Ordinary shares, of which those held in treasury have reduced to 1,181,755 Ordinary shares, leaving a balance of 113,669,360 Ordinary shares with voting rights. The total number of share options outstanding pursuant to the First Property Group Share Option Scheme has reduced to 5,050,000.


The figure of 113,669,360 Ordinary shares should be used by shareholders as the denominator for calculations to determine if they are required to notify an interest, or a change in their interest, in the Ordinary share capital of First Property Group plc under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency rules.
