The above awards were notified to the Company by each PDMR referred to above on 27 July 2018.

 

No consideration was paid for the grant of these awards which are structured as conditional awards.

 

The vesting of an award is subject to the satisfaction of the following performance conditions, measured over a performance period of three financial years of the Company ending with the 2020/2021 financial year (the "performance period"):

1.           70% of the award is based on the compound annual growth rate ("CAGR") in the Company's earnings per share ("EPS") measured over the performance period.

·               25% of the EPS-related part of the award will vest if the CAGR in the EPS is 8%, increasing on a straight-line basis to 50% vesting if the CAGR in the EPS is 10% and increasing on a straight-line basis to 100% vesting if the CAGR in the EPS is 12% or more.

2.           30% of the award is based on comparing the Company's total shareholder return ("TSR") measured over the performance period against the TSR over the performance period of each company in a bespoke group of companies ("Comparator Group").

·               25% of the TSR-related part of the award will vest if the Company's TSR is ranked at the median of the companies in the Comparator Group by reference to their TSR, increasing on a straight-line basis to 100% vesting if the Company's TSR is ranked at the upper quartile or above of the companies in the Comparator Group by reference to their TSR.

Performance against each target is assessed independently. The award will normally vest on the later of the third anniversary of grant and the determination of the performance conditions.  The awards are subject to the rules of the PSP and in particular the malus and clawback provisions set out therein.
