Futura Medical plc (AIM: FUM), the innovative healthcare company focused on advanced transdermal technology, announces the issue of 69,718 new ordinary shares of 0.2 pence each in respect of the 2015 remuneration of its Non-Executive Directors.

In accordance with the terms of their service agreements, Non-Executive Directors receive approximately 30 per cent of their remuneration in the Company's ordinary shares. For 2015 these were issued at 35.50 pence per share, being the average closing mid-price of the last 10 trading days of 2014 (as previously confirmed via RNS on 5 January 2015).

The 69,718 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 2015 remuneration Total number of ordinary shares held Percentage of the Company's issued share capital
John Clarke 42,583 119,551 0.12%
Jonathan Freeman 13,421 35,803 0.04%
Lisa Arnold 13,714 40,713 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 8 January 2016.

Immediately following the above issue, the Company will have 99,092,318 ordinary shares in issue. Since the Company currently holds no shares in treasury, the total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 99,092,318 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 and Transparency Rules.

The shares element of the Non-Executive Directors' remuneration for 2016 will be awarded at 28.45 pence per ordinary share, being the average closing mid-price of the last 10 trading days of 2015. The Non-Executive Directors will receive these shares at the end of the 2016 financial year.

Full details of Non-Executive Directors' remuneration will be included in the Company's Annual Report & Accounts.
