Biome Technologies plc

("Biome", "the Company" or "the Group")

Award under 2017 Long Term Incentive Plan ("2017 LTIP")

Biome announces that it has granted share options over a maximum of 37,349 ordinary shares in the Company under its previously announced 2017 LTIP. These share options have been granted to Biome's Group Chief Financial Officer, Robert Smith, and this award is intended to closer align Mr Smith's rewards with those of the Company's shareholders.

The performance award will follow the criteria disclosed in the announcement regarding the set-up of the 2017 LTIP released on 21 December 2017, with the exception of the following changes:

-- The exercise price will be 390 pence per ordinary share, the mid-market share price at the close of 26 May 2021; and

-- The value pool for these options will commence only when the Company's average closing share price, taken over a 56 day period commencing 63 days before the relevant vesting date, exceeds 390 pence per ordinary share.

The time criterion that restricts the value pool is as per the following vesting profile:

   --    10 June 2021: 90% of the value pool 
   --    10 December 2021: 100% of the value pool (less any amounts awarded under previous vestings) 

All vested share options must be exercised by 19 December 2022 under the rules of the 2017 LTIP.

The FCA notification regarding transactions by persons discharging managerial responsibilities made in accordance with the requirements of the EU Market Abuse Regulation which forms part of Domestic UK Law pursuant to the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, is appended below.

About Biome

Biome Technologies plc is an AIM listed, growth-orientated, commercially driven technology group. Our strategy is founded on building market-leading positions based on patented technology and serving international customers in valuable market sectors. We have chosen to do this by developing products in application areas where the value-added pricing can be justified and are not reliant on government legislation. These products are driven by customer requirements and are compatible with existing manufacturing processes. They are market rather than technology-led.

The Group comprises two divisions, Biome Bioplastics Limited and Stanelco RF Technologies Limited.

Biome Bioplastics is a leading developer of highly-functional, bio-based and biodegradable plastics. The company's mission is to produce bioplastics that challenge the dominance of oil-based polymers.

Stanelco RF Technologies designs, builds and services advanced radio frequency (RF) systems. Dielectric and induction heating products are at the core of a product offering that ranges from portable sealing devices to large furnaces for the fibre optics markets.
