Amendment to LTIP

01 September 2020

Equals (AIM:EQLS), the fast-growing B2B focused e-banking and international payments group announces that, in further consultation with shareholders, it has made an adjustment to the terms of the new Long Term Incentive Plan (‘LTIP’), which was implemented and announced on 20 August 2020.

As per the announcement, options over ordinary shares in the Company were granted to Ian Strafford-Taylor and Richard Cooper under the LTIP.  Whilst these options remain subject to the same vesting and performance conditions as previously announced, it has been agreed by the Remuneration Committee that the options shall also carry an exercise price of 29p per share, as opposed to the previous exercise price of £nil.

All other terms of the LTIP are unchanged.
