Empiric Student Property plc

("Empiric" or the "Company" or, together with its subsidiaries, the "Group")

Annual Bonus and LTIP Option Awards / PDMR Notification

The Board of Empiric Student Property plc (ticker: ESP) announces that on 24 April 2019, the Company granted Tim Attlee, Chief Executive Officer, nil-cost options over 43,818 ordinary shares in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") and Lynne Fennah, Chief Financial & Operating Officer, nil-cost options over 57,559 Ordinary Shares relating to the deferred shares element of the annual bonus award for the financial period to 31 December 2018 (the "Annual Bonus Award").

Further, and also on 24 April 2019, Lynne Fennah was granted nil-cost options over 502,757 Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Empiric Long Term Incentive Plan (the "LTIP") for the 2019 financial year.

The price used to calculate the number of Ordinary Shares under the Annual Bonus Award and the LTIP was 92.49 pence, representing the average of the daily closing prices of the Ordinary Shares on the London Stock Exchange for the 12 month period ended 31 March 2019.

The Annual Bonus Award is not subject to any further performance conditions and in normal circumstances will be exercisable on or after the third anniversary of grant.

The amount granted under the LTIP represents the maximum number of Ordinary Shares that may be granted to Lynne Fennah under the LTIP.

The LTIP is subject to a performance condition whereby 25% of the award vests for achieving a total return ("TR") of 8% per annum increasing to 100% vesting for achieving 12% per annum TR, with the Company's TR performance measured over a three-year period ending 31 December 2021. TR is calculated by the change in net asset value per share of the Company plus dividends. The award is also subject to an additional holding period of two years before being released and becoming exercisable.

The total number of Ordinary Shares over which nil-cost options were granted on 24 April 2019 represents approximately 0.10 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital.

The LTIP transaction took place in the United Kingdom, with a grant date of 24 April 2019 and the Directors being notified on 24 April 2019.

The Annual Bonus Award notification is made in accordance with Article 19 of the Market Abuse Regulations and further details required under Article 19(6) are set out in Appendix I below.
