Debenhams plc (the "Company") announces that the following persons discharging managerial responsibilities (PDMRs) were granted awards under the Debenhams Performance Share Plan ("PSP").  The PSP awards were granted in the form of 0.01p pence options and the PDMRs will be entitled to exercise their awards within the six months from the vesting date, subject to the extent to which the performance conditions have been satisfied. 70% of the award will vest by reference to an underlying EPS measure and 30% of the award will vest by reference to four strategic performance measures. The EPS measure for FY 2019 is an absolute target between 5.6p and 8.0p with 25% of the tranche vesting at 5.6p, 50% of the tranche vesting at 6.0p (consensus) and 100% of the tranche vesting at 8p. There is straight line vesting between these points. The four strategic measures are beauty GTV growth, food GTV growth, mobile GTV growth and online cost per unit improvements. Vesting in respect of these four strategic measures is also subject to the company meeting a ROCE underpin.
