PDMR Dealings

EJF Investments Ltd ("EJFI" or the "Company") announces in accordance with its Dealing Code that Joanna Dentskevich, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Company and a "person discharging managerial responsibilities" (a "PDMR") for the purposes of Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 on Market Abuse as it forms part of United Kingdom domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 ("MAR"), conditionally agreed to purchase 28,348 ordinary shares of no par value in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") on 17 December 2020 at a price of 115 pence per share in a private transaction.

It should be noted that whilst the Sale and Purchase Agreement in relation to the purchase of the Ordinary Shares was signed on 17 December 2020, the transaction is currently subject to approval in accordance with the Company's AML process for off market transfers and the transfer of shares has therefore not yet been effected by the Company's registrar.

Following the settlement of this transaction, Joanna Dentskevich will be interested in 77,896 Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 0.13% of the issued Ordinary Shares, and 30,000 zero dividend preference shares with a redemption date in 2025 ("2025 ZDP Shares"), representing approximately 0.50% of the issued 2025 ZDP Shares.

Shares in the capital of the Company held in treasury have not been taken into account in the calculation of the above percentages.
