Deferred Bonus Plan awards

Oxford BioMedica plc ("Oxford BioMedica" or the "Company") announces the grant of awards to its executive directors under the Oxford BioMedica 2013 Deferred Bonus Plan (the "DBP") on 18 June 2014. 

As referred to in the Company's Directors' Remuneration Report for the year ended 31 December 2013, approved by shareholders at the Company's AGM on 3 June 2014, the Remuneration Committee changed the structure of the executive directors' annual bonus arrangements to provide that one half of any bonus payment would be delivered via deferred shares under the DBP in order to align the executive directors incentive packages with shareholders' interests.  The awards granted are the deferred share elements of the executive directors' bonuses for the year ended 31 December 2013.  In accordance with the rules of the DBP, the number of shares subject to each award has been determined by reference to the average closing price of a share during December 2013.
