Director/PDMR Shareholding

 Further to the Company’s announcement of 5 April 2018, disclosing the number of ordinary shares of EUR 0.01 per share in the capital of GVC (“Shares”) held by Paul Bowtell, the Company has received a correction to his notification.  Paul Bowtell holds 287,438 Shares, not 265,290 Shares as previously disclosed. 

The original notification did not take account of the additional Shares received by Paul Bowtell as a result of the mix and match election mechanism available to all Ladbrokes Coral Group plc (“Ladbrokes Coral”) shareholders and share scheme participants in respect of the acquisition of Ladbrokes Coral by the Company (the “Acquisition”).

On completion of the Acquisition, Paul Bowtell was issued 301,212 Shares as part of the consideration for his Ladbrokes Coral shares and participation in the Ladbrokes Coral share schemes.  As previously disclosed, 13,774 Shares were sold on 29 March 2018 in order to cover taxation liabilities under the Ladbrokes Coral share schemes.

The Company has also been informed that Paul Bowtell holds 1,979,187 Contingent Value Rights issued by the Company to Ladbrokes Coral shareholders in respect of the Acquisition.
