("SmartSpace" or the "Company" or the "Group")

Grant of Share Options & PDMR dealing

SmartSpace Software Plc, the leading provider of 'Integrated Space Management Software' for smart buildings, announces that on 23 October 2020 it granted options ("Options") over a total of 604,500 ordinary shares of 10 pence in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") to 40 employees ("Employee Options"). Options over a total of 284,500 Ordinary Shares have been granted to employees under the Company's Enterprise Management Incentive ("EMI") Share Option Scheme and options over 320,000 Ordinary Shares have been granted under the Company's Unapproved Share Option Scheme to employees not qualifying for the EMI Share Option Scheme.

125,000 of these Options have been granted to Bruce Morrison, Chief Financial Officer of the Company (the "PDMR Options"), under the EMI Share Option Scheme. Following the grant of these PDMR Options, Bruce Morrison now holds Options over 125,000 Ordinary Shares in the Company.

The Options have an exercise price of 92.5p per share (being the closing mid-market share price on 23 October 2020), vest three years from the date of grant (ensuring the employees remain in continuous employment within the Group for a three year period) and once vested, are exercisable at any time up to ten years after the date of grant. In addition, the PDMR Options are subject to performance conditions, whereby the average mid-market closing share price of the Company's Ordinary Shares in any 90 day period in the period to 23 October 2023 is at or above certain defined levels, as follows:

   Share price at or    % vesting 
 150p                         15% 
 250p                         31% 
 350p                         54% 
 450p                         77% 
 500p                        100% 

The Board believes that the above performance conditions are a good measure of value creation and align the Directors' interests with those of shareholders.

Guy van Zwanenberg, Chairman of SmartSpace commented:

"With the focus now on becoming a leading supplier of software solutions in workspace management , it is crucial that we align the interests of all members of the SmartSpace team with shareholders. The EMI Option Scheme and Unapproved Share Option Scheme were established to incentivise management and staff to increase shareholder value over the long term and the remuneration committee is keen to ensure that remuneration for the Company's senior team and employees will be effective, fair and motivate them to deliver success for the Company and its shareholders."
