HMRC Approved Employee Share Acquisition Plan (“ESAP”)

Synectics (AIM: SNX), a leader in the design, integration, control and management of advanced surveillance technology and networked security systems, has been notified that the Trustee of the ESAP purchased on 1 October 2019 9,279 ordinary shares of 20 pence each in the Company (“Shares”) at £1.53 per Share in accordance with the ESAP's rules and on behalf of all ESAP participants, in respect of the six-month accumulation period ended on 30 September 2019.

Under the terms of the ESAP, participating members, including employees and certain Directors of the Company, contribute a fixed amount to the Trustee on a monthly basis. The Trustee acquires a number of Shares at the end of the six-month accumulation period (the “Period”) based upon the contributions made in the Period and determined by the lowest share price at either the beginning of the Period or on the date of purchase. In this instance the share price used for the allocation of the number of Shares for ESAP purposes was the price per Share on the date of purchase.

The Trustee also reinvested the Company’s interim dividend paid to shareholders on 20 September 2019 and purchased on 1 October 2019 511 Shares at £1.53 per Share in accordance with the ESAP's rules.

As a result of these purchases, the Company has been notified that Paul Webb, Chief Executive Director, has acquired an interest in 652 Shares and that Greg Alcorn, a PDMR of the Company, has acquired an interest in 604 Shares.
