Oxford Metrics plc (AIM:OMG), the smart sensing software company servicing life sciences, entertainment and engineering markets, announces that it has issued 27,624 Ordinary Shares to its Non-Executive Chairman, Roger Parry, in satisfaction of salary.


When Roger Parry joined Oxford Metrics as Non-Executive Chairman of the Company on 29 June 2016 he agreed to receive 35.2 per cent of his annual fee in share based payments, reflecting Roger's belief in the Oxford Metrics vision. The number of shares issued is calculated based on the closing mid-market price of 90.5 pence per Ordinary Share on 5 December 2022.
