Further to the announcement made on 16 May 2018 regarding the grant of Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) awards to certain Director’s of the Company, XP Power announces that Andy Sng was in fact granted 2,857 awards and not 2,000 awards, as originally stated.

All other information within the announcement remains unchanged. The full amended text appears below.

XP Power Limited (“XP” or the “Company”)

Grant of Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) awards

The Company announces that on 16 May 2018, certain Directors of the Company were awarded a nominal priced option over ordinary shares of 1p each in the Company (“Ordinary Shares”) as detailed below, under the XP Power Limited Long Term Incentive Plan 2017 (the “Awards”) approved by shareholders on 19 April 2017.

Director Number of Ordinary Shares over which awards granted
Mike Laver 3,000
Duncan Penny 11,200
Andy Sng 2,857
TOTAL 17,057

The vesting of the Awards is conditional on meeting performance conditions measured over a three-year period as described below, with 50% vesting on the third anniversary of the date the Awards were made and 50% vesting after a further one year deferral period.

Performance conditions

  1. Earnings per Share Target

    Up to 50% of the total Awards will vest on the achievement of the following earnings per share ("EPS") compound growth per annum targets for the three financial years ending 31 December 2018, 2019 and 2020 (the “Performance Condition Period”) as shown in the following table:

EPS compound growth per annum ("EPS Target") Max. No. of Ordinary Shares vesting subject to the EPS Target
6% 12.5% of total LTIP award
12% 50% of total LTIP award

Achievement of the EPS Target between 6% and 12% will result in the Awards vesting on a straight-line basis and any entitlement to a fraction of an Ordinary Share shall be rounded down.

  1. Total Shareholder Return (“TSR”) Target

    Up to 50% of the total Awards will vest dependent upon the performance of the Company’s TSR measured against that of the FTSE250 over the Performance Condition Period. 12.5% of the total LTIP award will vest at median performance with 50% of the total LTIP award vesting at upper quartile performance.  Vesting between these points will be measured on a straight-line basis.

    Malus and clawback provisions are also in place to reduce or recover the Awards for criteria such as any material misstatement of the financial statements, a serious breach of the Company’s code of ethics or a serious health and safety issue.
