Grant of options

Tracsis announces that, following a meeting of the Group's remuneration committee on 5 January 2017, it formally granted 43,045 share options on 6 January 2017 to John McArthur, Chief Executive Officer and 28,697 to Max Cawthra, Chief Finance Officer, together the Group's Executive Directors.

The remuneration committee believes it is important to retain and motivate Executive Directors whilst at the same time setting challenging performance targets that are aligned with the Group's strategic goals and in shareholders' interests.

The options awarded have an exercise price of 0.4p and are directly linked to performance targets based on Group profitability and Total Shareholder Return relative to an AIM peer group determined by Tracsis' remuneration committee.

Full award is only exercisable should statutory diluted Earnings Per Share (EPS) for the year ending 31 July 2019 be 17.38p, and Total Shareholder Return (TSR) versus AIM peer group is in the top quartile. Where statutory diluted EPS for the year ending 31 July 2019 be less than 14.38p, and TSR versus the peer group is less than the median, no options will be exercisable. For scenarios between the above range, the options will be exercisable on a straight line sliding scale basis.
