Rio Tinto Performance Share Plan ("PSP")


On 12 September 2016, the Rio Tinto Remuneration Committee approved a grant of 79,966 Rio Tinto plc ordinary shares of 10p each ("ordinary shares") under the rules of the 2013 PSP, to Jean-Sébastien Jacques, Chief Executive, Rio Tinto.


The PSP is a performance share plan which provides participants with the conditional right, subject to performance conditions being met, to receive ordinary shares.  The value of the shares is determined by taking the average of the middle market quotations from the LSE for each Friday in the year immediately preceding the commencement of the relevant performance period. As advised in the Rio Tinto 2015 annual report, this value is £26.346 in the case of Rio Tinto plc. The award granted will be measured against the performance conditions after five years (at the end of 2020). 


An FCA notification in accordance with the EU Market Abuse Regime has been issued to the London Stock Exchange contemporaneously with this release.
