GRANT OF NIL COST OPTIONS

Costain announces the following grant of share awards to certain Directors of the Company.

 

On 7 May 2019, awards were made under the Costain Group PLC 2014 Long Term Incentive Plan (the "LTIP") over ordinary shares of 50p each in the Company in the form of options with a nil exercise price (the "Awards").  No consideration was paid for the grant of the Awards. 

 

The vesting of the Awards is subject to the satisfaction of certain performance conditions. The Annual Report 2018 included proposed performance conditions which have now been finalised by the Remuneration Committee of the Company and are unchanged as follows:

 

(a)      an EPS target (relating to 75% of the Awards) of 128.2p (for 15% vesting) and 141.0p (for 100% vesting), with vesting on a straight-line basis between the two; and

(b)      a cash conversion target (relating to 25% of the Awards) of 80% (for 15% vesting) and 100% (for 100% vesting), with vesting on a straight-line basis between the two.

 

The Awards will normally vest three years after grant, subject to the satisfaction of performance conditions over the three-year financial period ending 31 December 2021 but cannot be released/ exercised until the fifth anniversary of the date of grant (with no further performance conditions required after vesting). The Awards will remain exercisable from the fifth anniversary of the date of grant until the day before the tenth anniversary of the date of grant provided the individual remains an employee or officer of the Company.
