Futura Medical plc (AIM: FUM) (the "Company"), a pharmaceutical company developing a portfolio of innovative products for sexual health and pain relief, announces the issue of 76,828 new ordinary shares of 0.2 pence each ("Ordinary Shares") in respect of the 2018 remuneration of its Non-Executive Directors.

In accordance with the terms of their service agreements, the Non-Executive Directors receive approximately 30 per cent of their remuneration in the form of Ordinary Shares. For 2018, these were issued at 25.10 pence per share, being the average closing mid-market price of the last 10 trading days of 2017 (as announced via RNS on 2 January 2018).

The 76,828 new ordinary shares shall rank pari passu with the existing issued Ordinary Shares of the Company and have been issued as follows:

Director Number of Ordinary
Shares issued for 2018
remuneration
Total number of
ordinary shares
held
Percentage of the
Company's resulting
issued share capital

Jonathan Freeman 19,578 90,621 0.04%

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange and it is anticipated that trading of the new ordinary shares will commence on AIM at 8:00am on 16 January 2019.

Immediately following the above issue, the Company will have 204,660,267 ordinary shares in issue, each carrying one voting right. Since the Company currently holds no shares in treasury, the total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 204,660,267 and this figure may be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

The shares element of the Non-Executive Directors' remuneration for 2019 will be awarded at 6.01 pence per Ordinary Share, being the average closing mid-market price of the last 10 trading days of 2018. The Non-Executive Directors will receive these shares in January 2020.
