Issue of new shares to PDMR


SuperGroup Plc ('the Company' or 'SuperGroup') announces that, following the satisfaction in full of certain performance criteria by Luc Clément in connection with the Company's acquisition of SuperGroup Europe BVBA ('SGE'), formerly CNC Collections BVBA from Mr Clément in February 2011 (the 'SGE Acquisition'), the Company has today allotted and issued 220,959 ordinary shares of 5p each ('Ordinary Shares') in the capital of the Company to Mr Clément (the 'Initial Deferred Consideration'). 


Under the terms of the SGE Acquisition, Mr Clément, SuperGroup's Director of European Development, was entitled to be allotted the Initial Deferred Consideration on the second anniversary of completion if the performance criteria was fully satisfied. 


In the event Mr Clément satisfies additional performance criteria, which includes the opening of a number of new stores and the achievement of certain revenue targets, then he will be entitled to be issued up to an additional 441,917 Ordinary Shares on the third anniversary of completion of the SGE Acquisition (the 'Additional Deferred Consideration').  In the event that only a certain percentage proportion of the performance criteria is satisfied then Mr Clément will receive an equivalent percentage proportion of the Additional Deferred Consideration. 


Application is being made to the UK Listing Authority for the 220,959 Ordinary Shares being issued to be admitted to the Official List, and application is being made to the London Stock Exchange for such Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on its main market for listed securities. It is expected that such admission will become effective and that dealings will commence in the Ordinary Shares at 8.00 am (GMT) on 13 February 2013.


Following the issue of the Initial Deferred Consideration, Mr Clément will hold in aggregate 615,064 Ordinary Shares, representing 0.76% of the issued share capital of the Company.


The Company now has a total of 80,455,547 Ordinary Shares in issue.  This figure may be used by shareholders to determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, SuperGroup under the Financial Services Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
