NOTIFICATION OF TRANSACTIONS OF DIRECTORS, PERSONS DISCHARGING MANAGERIAL RESPONSIBILITY ("PDMR") OR PERSONS CLOSELY ASSOCIATED WITH THEM ("PCA")

In accordance with Article 19(1) of the EU Market Abuse Regulation No 596/2014, Quarto (LSE: QRT) announces that it received notice on 10 June 2019 that:

(a) 1010 Printing Limited, a company incorporated in Hong Kong with registration number 1419686 ("1010 Printing"), and a company closely associated with Chuk Kin Lau, Chief Executive Officer of the Company ("CK Lau"), acquired 1,080,000 shares of common stock of $0.10 each ("Shares") in Quarto at a price of 63.2 pence per Share on 6 June 2019.

(b) CK Lau acquired 40,000 Shares at a price of 63.2 pence per Share on 6 June 2019.

Following these transactions, 1010 Printing holds 5,194,929 Shares representing 25.41% of Quarto's issued share capital and CK Lau holds 1,679,743 Shares representing 8.22% of Quarto's issued share capital, which in aggregate, makes a total holding of 6,874,672 Shares representing 33.63% of the Company's issued share capital.

It is noted that in the Company's announcement on 6 December 2018 it was stated that the aggregate holding of 1010 Printing and CK Lau was 5,804,672 Shares following the acquisition of Shares by 1010 Printing as set out in that announcement. As a result, it was implied that the holding of CK Lau was 1,689,743 Shares. This figure was incorrect and the correct holding by CK Lau was 1,639,743 Shares, and therefore such aggregate holding should have stated 5,754,672 Shares.

The information set out below is provided in accordance with the requirements of Article 19(3) of the EU Market Abuse Regulation No 596/2014.
