Director/PDMR Shareholding and Issue of Equity

Intercede, the leading specialist in digital identity, credential management and secure mobility, announces that on 8 December 2021 it received a notification of exercise from Andrew Walker, Finance Director, in relation to 500,000 share options (“Options”) over ordinary shares of 1p each in the Company (“Ordinary Shares”) at an exercise price of 27.0 pence pursuant to the Company’s Enterprise Management Incentive Plan (the “Exercise”).

Following the Exercise, Mr Walker sold 300,000 Ordinary Shares at a price of 78.0 pence per Ordinary Share on 8 December 2021 in order to cover the cost of the Exercise. Following the Exercise and the sale of shares, Mr Walker has an increased shareholding of 1,817,337 Ordinary Shares in the Company, representing approximately 3.15% of the Company’s issued share capital. He no longer has any share options in the Company.

The notification below, which has been made in accordance with the requirements of the Market Abuse Regulation, provides further detail.

Issue of Equity

Accordingly, application has been made for 500,000 new Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the Exercise to be admitted to trading on AIM (“Admission”). Admission is expected to occur at 8.00 a.m. on or around 15 December 2021.

The new Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu with the existing shares of the Company. Following Admission, the Company’s issued share capital consists of 57,743,357 Ordinary Shares, each with voting rights. The Company holds 131,645 Ordinary Shares in treasury, therefore the total number of voting rights in the Company is 57,611,712. Accordingly, the figure of 57,611,712 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company under the FCA’s Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Following the Exercise, there are options outstanding over 1,400,000 Ordinary Shares, representing 2.42% of the Company’s issued share capital.
