Forward Partners Group plc

("Forward Partners" or the "Company")

Establishment of LTIP and Grant of Options

Forward Partners, the London-based investment firm specialising in supporting high growth, early-stage technology businesses, announces the following in connection with the establishment of a new long-term incentive plan (the "LTIP") and the grant of options pursuant to the LTIP.

The Board recognises the importance of long-term equity incentive schemes as a means to incentivise the Company's executive management and ensure alignment with the objectives of the Group. It is intended that options granted pursuant to the LTIP will vest subject to performance conditions linked to shareholder returns and target portfolio exits.

The Company confirms that following establishment of the LTIP, it has granted 323,318 Options to Nic Brisbourne, CEO of the Company. The Options have a six-year life and are exercisable at nominal value. Tiered vesting of the Options will be based on the achievement of performance conditions by 19 July 2024.
