Award of share options

The Board of Forbidden Technologies plc, the owner and developer of the FORscene Cloud video platform, resolved on 5 May 2012 to award options over its ordinary shares of 0.8p each under its EMI scheme ("EMI"), adopted at the AGM on 27 April 2012, and the Forbidden Technologies unapproved scheme ("Unapproved").

The options have an exercise price of 24.5p, being the closing mid-market share price on 4 May 2012 (the latest possible date prior to the date of award) and are normally exercisable after three years.

The options awarded to directors are as follows:

DirectorNumber of optionsScheme
Vic Steel100,000EMI
Phil Madden75,000EMI
Greg Hirst100,000EMI
David Main75,000Unapproved

David Main, a non-executive director, has his options under the unapproved share options scheme as he does not meet the working hour requirements of EMI.

In addition, options over 550,000 Forbidden ordinary shares of 0.8p each were awarded to other Forbidden employees under the EMI scheme.

Stephen Streater, CEO of Forbidden Technologies plc, comments: "This issue of options continues our commitment to incentivising our team members".
