IG Group Holdings Plc (the "Company") was notified on 29 July 2013 of transactions carried out by its directors in respect of the Company's ordinary shares of 0.005p each (the "Ordinary Shares"). This notice is being issued in accordance with DTR 3.1.4R(1) and DTR 3.1.5R.

The Company operates a HMRC approved SIP under which matching shares are provided up to a maximum of £1,500. The scheme is open to all UK based employees. For the 2013 SIP, employees that chose to invest the maximum of £1,500 received approximately 258 shares on 26 July 2013 and, if they remain employed at the end of 3 years after the transaction, the shares will be matched by the Company on a one-for one basis.

2. Award of options to Directors under the Long Term Bonus Plan

As disclosed in the Company's 2009 Annual Report, and repeated in subsequent Annual Reports, there is an element of deferral in the Directors' performance related bonus scheme, meaning that the first £100,000 of any bonus plus one third of the remainder is to be paid in cash and the balance of the bonus (if any) is to be deferred into shares for at least one year, in accordance with the rules of the Company's Long Term Bonus Plan ("LTBP").  Deferral is to be achieved via the award of options to acquire the relevant number of the Company's shares at nil cost (or their cash equivalent) on the relevant vesting date.

On 29 July 2013, the Company made the following awards to Directors for bonuses earned for the year ended 31 May 2013, deferred in accordance with the LTBP.
