 RESPONSIBILITIES AND CONNECTED PERSONS 
GKN plc (the "Company") has today been notified by the Trustee of its Employee

Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ("PDMRs") under the GKN
Deferred Bonus Plan ("DBP") and the GKN Profit Growth Investment Plan ("PGIP")

DBP 
The shares released represent a percentage of the amount earned under the
Company's 2010 annual bonus arrangements which were compulsorily deferred and
invested into GKN shares. Shares were released after a two year deferral
period; during this period, dividends earned on the shares were accrued and an
equivalent cash amount paid on release of the shares. 
A number of shares were subsequently sold at a price of £2.63075 per share,
principally to settle tax liabilities arising from the release of the shares;
these are detailed below.
