On 4 April 2018, an award of nil-cost options to acquire 66,864 shares was made to Graeme Watt, a director and PDMR. The number of shares over which the nil-cost option was awarded has been calculated by reference to the closing middle market quotation of the ordinary shares derived from the Daily Official List on the dealing day preceding the date of grant (6.73 pence). The award will vest subject to the performance conditions outlined below.

 

 

Performance Conditions and Vesting of Awards

 

These nil-cost options are subject to the rules of the LTIP and will vest depending on performance against Total Shareholder Return ("TSR") and Earnings per Share ("EPS") targets as measured over a three year performance period.

 

50% of the Award will be subject to the Company's relative TSR performance against the FTSE 250 (excluding real estate and investment trusts):

 

TSR performance                       % of Award vesting

Below median                                        Nil

At median                                             30%

Upper quartile or above                           100%

 

50% of the Award will be subject to the Company's EPS for FY 2020:

 

EPS Growth                             % of Award vesting

Less than 23.7 pence                               Nil

23.7 pence                                               20%

26.9 pence or above                                100%

 

There will be straight line vesting between the points as outlined above.

 

The normal date of vesting for the nil-cost options outlined above will be 4 April 2021 and the last date for exercise will be 3 April 2028, with dividend equivalents payable in respect of the vesting of nil-cost options in accordance with the rules of the LTIP.
