No consideration was paid for the grant of the LTIP Awards which are structured as nil cost options. The number of Ordinary Shares granted under each LTIP Award has been calculated using an Ordinary Share price of 290.0 pence per share.

 

The normal vesting date of the LTIP Awards will be 9 April 2021, being the third anniversary of the award date.

 

Once vested, the LTIP Award will normally be exercisable until the day before the tenth anniversary of the award date. 

 

The LTIP Awards will normally vest after three years based on the satisfaction of the following performance conditions:-

 

i.   

50% on relative TSR against the FTSE 250 (excluding financial services, real estate and equity investment trusts): Median performance against the index (threshold); upper quartile performance against the index (maximum); and



ii.  

50% on compound annual Adjusted EPS growth: 6% p.a. compound growth (threshold); 16% p.a. compound growth (maximum).

 

25% of the LTIP Award will vest for threshold performance under both measures, with straight line vesting in between to full vesting for the achievement of maximum performance.

 

A holding period applies, which will commence on Vesting of the Award and end 2 years after Vesting.

 

On 9 April 2018 the Company also granted an award ("ADBP Award") over Ordinary Shares in accordance with the rules of the Ibstock plc Annual and Deferred Bonus Plan ("ADBP").

This award represents the deferral into Ordinary Shares of part of the Executive Director's 2017 bonus entitlements under the rules of the ADBP.  

 

No consideration was paid for the grant of the ADBP Awards which was structured as a nil cost option. The number of Ordinary Shares granted under the ADBP Award has been calculated in accordance with the rules of the ADBP using an Ordinary Share price of 250.1 pence, being the average Ordinary Share price measured over the last 30 days of the financial year to which the bonus relates ended 31 December 2017.

 

The ADBP Awards will normally vest on 9 April 2021, subject to the participant being an employee of the Group at that time. Once vested, the ADBP Award will normally be exercisable until the day before the tenth anniversary of the award date.

 

On 9 April 2018 the Company has also granted a Buy-out award to Joe Hudson. As announced by the Company on 2 January 2018, in relation to Joe Hudson's appointment as a Director and Chief Executive Officer Designate with effect from 2 January 2018, Joe Hudson held a number of share incentive awards under certain plans operated by his previous employer. The Board agreed to grant a buy-out award of 21,570 Ibstock plc ordinary shares of 1penny each to compensate, on a fair value basis, the value forgone by Joe Hudson for share awards forfeited on cessation of employment with his previous employer. The fair value of the award has been reduced to take account of the original performance period and the proportion of satisfaction of the performance conditions as at the time of the buy-out.

The award will vest on the first anniversary of the date of his appointment, subject to him remaining employed on the vesting date and not under notice of cessation of relevant employment. No additional performance conditions will be attached to the award.
