Headlam Group plc

(the 'Company') 

Grant of awards under the Company's Performance Share Plan

On 9 April 2018, Headlam Group plc granted awards in the form of nil-cost options over a total of 328,596 ordinary shares of 5 pence each in the Company ('Ordinary Shares') under the Company's Performance Share Plan ('PSP'), as detailed in the 2017 Annual Report and Accounts, to Senior Management Team employees and the following Executive Directors:

Director

Number of Ordinary Shares over which award granted

Steve Wilson (Chief Executive)

86,187

Tony Judge (Chief Operating Officer)

77,114

Chris Payne (Chief Financial Officer)

63,506

 

The awards have been granted subject to performance conditions based on: (1) the Company's compound annual growth in Earnings Per Share ('EPS') over a three-year performance period starting with 2018 (as regards 80% of the Ordinary Shares subject to the award); and (2) the Company's Total Shareholder Return ('TSR') over that performance period relative to the TSRs of the constituents of the FTSE SmallCap Index (excluding investment trusts) (as regards 20% of the Ordinary Shares subject to the award).  The awards are subject to a further performance condition that the extent of vesting reflects the overall financial performance of the Company over the three-year performance period. 

The awards will, ordinarily, vest on the date on which the Company's Remuneration Committee determines the extent to which the performance conditions have been satisfied (the 'vesting date').  

The awards will be released so that the participants are entitled to acquire the vested Ordinary Shares, which for Executive Directors is following the end of a holding period requirement which shall end on the second anniversary of the vesting date.
