Recommendation to Trustees of EBT

Impax Asset Management Group plc (the "Company" or "Impax") announces that prior to entering into a close period today, ahead of the release its interim results for the six month period ended 31 March 2017 on Thursday 11 May 2017, it provided a recommendation to Sanne Fiduciary Services Limited, the independent trustee of the Impax Asset Management Group plc Employee Benefit Trust 2012, to continue to acquire Impax ordinary shares of 1p each ("Impax Shares") in the market to satisfy share awards to employees.
