Exercise of Options

The Company confirms that, following the receipt of notices of exercise of options from employees and a Director, it has approved the issue of 160,501 Ordinary Shares (the "New Ordinary Shares").

Following the issue of the New Ordinary Shares, the number of Ordinary Shares in issue will increase to 95,252,341. For the purposes of the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules ("DTRs"), the issued ordinary share capital of the Company following this allotment consists of 95,252,341 Ordinary Shares with voting rights attached. There are no Shares held in treasury. This total voting rights figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interests in, or a change to their interest in, Gamma Communications plc under the DTRs.

Pursuant to above exercise of options, and in part to pay the option holders' tax due on the exercise, the following option holders sold Ordinary Shares on 11 September 2020 at 1570p in the quantities shown below:
