Total Voting Rights and Director/PDMR Shareholding
Total Voting Rights
In conformity with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules (‘the Rules’), we
notify the market of the following:
As at 30 April 2013, the issued capital of Centrica plc (the ‘Company’)
comprised 5,187,770,917 Ordinary Shares, of 6^14/81 pence (‘Shares’). This
figure excludes 12,158,775 Shares held in treasury. All of the issued Shares
carry voting rights of one vote per share.
The figure of 5,187,770,917 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for
the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify
their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the
Purchase of Shares by Directors of the Company and Persons Discharging
Managerial Responsibility (‘PDMRs’) under its Share Incentive Plan (‘SIP’).
The SIP trustee, Equiniti Share Plan Trustees Limited (the ‘Trustee’),
notified the Company on
2 May 2013 that:
(1) The following Directors and other Persons Discharging Managerial
Responsibility for the Company acquired Shares under the SIP on 1 May 2013
held through the Trustee:

(a) The ‘Number of Shares Acquired’ for each of the above Directors includes
33 Partnership shares acquired at 373.95 pence per share and 16 Matching
shares acquired at 375.4 pence per share (34 Partnership shares and 17
Matching shares for Sam Laidlaw due to a higher residual cash balance from the
previous months purchase). Both the Partnership and Matching elements are
registered in the name of the Trustee.
(b) Excluding vested but unexercised nil cost options.
(2) The Trustee had transferred 25,000 shares from Equiniti Corporate Nominees
Limited AESOP1 (Allocated shares) to Equiniti Corporate Nominees Limited
AESOP2 (Unallocated shares). The transfer was made following the forfeiture of
shares, under the rules of the SIP, by participants who have left the group
since the last purchase and the shares had been used towards the current
month’s allocation of Matching shares.
Head of Group Secretariat
The SIP is made available to all UK employees and operates as follows:
*Each month the Trustee uses participants’ contributions (which may not
exceed £125 per participant per month) to purchase shares in the market.
These shares are called ‘Partnership shares’.
*At the same time the Company allots to participants via the Trustee one
‘Matching share’ for every two Partnership shares purchased that month (up
to a maximum of 22 Matching shares per month).
*Participants may change their monthly savings rate whenever they wish.
However, Directors and others bound by the Company’s Securities Dealing
Code (the “Code”) may not make such a change during a close period or when
otherwise prohibited from dealing by the Code.
