Long Term Incentive Plan

Adept4 announces that on 16 February 2017 it made awards to certain directors under the Company's recently established long term incentive plan ("LTIP"). At the time of the Company's placing ("Placing") and acquisitions of Ancar-B Technologies Ltd and Weston Communications Limited ("Acquisitions") in January 2016, the Company announced that it intended to create a long-term incentive plan ("LTIP") for key management as it believed that the future success of the Company would depend largely on its key management and staff being appropriately motivated and rewarded.

Participants in the LTIP will be entitled in aggregate to up to 10 per cent. of future shareholder value generated, which is calculated by reference to the growth in the market capitalisation of the Company above the base value. The base value is defined as the market capitalisation of the Company following the Placing and Acquisitions, i.e. the growth in share price above the Placing price of 4.2 pence. Awards under the LTIP are subject to vesting criteria of a minimum of 40% shareholder return created over a period of up to six years from the date of the Placing and Acquisitions (or five years from issue of the shares as detailed below), as adjusted for the issue of new ordinary shares (but excluding any new ordinary shares issued pursuant to the LTIP) and taking into account dividends and capital returns, if any ("Shareholder Return").

The LTIP had been initially partially implemented through the use of EMI Options and a bonus scheme, which will only vest subject to a minimum of a three to five year qualifying employment period or a sale of the Company ("Exit"), whichever is shorter, and subject to Shareholder Returns exceeding 40%. The EMI options awarded to Ian Winn under this scheme were announced on 29 September 2016 and are subject to an exercise price of 9 pence.

On 16 February 2017, awards of 7.0 per cent. of Shareholder Return were made to Gavin Lyons, Executive Chairman, (4.8 per cent.) and Ian Winn, COO and Finance Director (2.2 per cent.) through the issue of A ordinary shares and B ordinary shares in Adept4 Holdings Limited (together the "LTIP Shares"), an intermediate holding company of the Company. The LTIP Shares have the right to be exchanged, at the discretion of the Company, for cash or for Ordinary Shares in the Company, upon an Exit or between three and five years from issue, subject in all cases to the vesting criteria (being a share price at vesting of greater than 9 pence) being met. In total, including the EMI options awarded on 29 September 2016 and bonus scheme referred to above, awards of 9.5% per cent. of Shareholder Return have now been made.

The notifications below, made in accordance with the requirements of the EU Market Abuse Regulation, provide further detail.
