13 October 2016

Tesco PLC (the "Company")

 

Grant of Awards under the Tesco PLC Performance Share Plan 2011 (the "PSP")

 

Jane Lawrie was appointed as Group Communications Director and a member of the Company's Executive Committee with effect from 10 October 2016.

 

On 10 October 2016, Jane was granted 152,408 nil-cost options over Ordinary Shares of 5 pence each in the Company under the rules of the PSP, the number of shares being calculated using a market price of 196.84 pence per share.

 

40% of the nil-cost options will become exercisable on 1 February 2017 and 60% of the nil-cost options will become exercisable on 1 February 2018, subject to continuous employment.

 

In the event that dividends are paid in the period between grant and exercise, the number of shares subject to option will be increased to reflect the dividends that would have accrued had they been reinvested in shares.

 

The nil-cost options have been awarded in respect of the buy-out of share awards that Jane has forfeited on leaving her previous employment.  The Remuneration Committee believes that the award fairly reflects the share awards Jane forfeited in terms of value and timescale of vesting.

 

The Notification of Dealing Form can be found below.  This announcement is made in accordance with Article 19 of the EU Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014.
