These awards (the "PSP Awards") are subject to two performance conditions which will be measured following the announcement of results for the year to 27 December 2020 ("FY2020").

 

The first performance condition applying to the PSP Awards will be based on Earnings per Share of the Company ("EPS") and will apply to 50 per cent. of the total number of Share Awards granted.

12.5%

Between 24.50 and 26.69 pence

Pro-rata on straight-line basis between 12.5% and 50%

More than 26.69 pence

50%

 

The EPS measure is based on adjusted fully diluted EPS as stated in the Company's accounts and is subject to such adjustments as the Remuneration Committee in its discretion determines are fair and reasonable.

 

The second performance condition will be based on Total Shareholder Return ("TSR") of the Company over the period from the date of grant to the announcement of results for FY2020 relative to a comparator group of companies and will apply to the remaining 50 per cent. of Share Awards granted.

 

It is intended that 12.5 per cent. of the total number of Share Awards will vest on achievement of median TSR performance and that 50 per cent. of such will vest on achievement of upper quartile performance. There will be straight line vesting between these points.
