NOTIFICATION AND PUBLIC DISCLOSURE OF TRANSACTIONS BY PERSONS DISCHARGING MANAGERIAL RESPONSIBLITIES AND PERSONS CLOSELY ASSOCIATED WITH THEM

 

VESTINGS UNDER THE VIRGIN MONEY DEFERRED BONUS SHARE PLAN (VM DBSP) AND VIRGIN MONEY LONG-TERM INVESTMENT PLAN (VM LTIP)

 

On the 15 October 2018 the Company acquired the entire issued ordinary share capital of Virgin Money Holdings (UK) plc (Virgin Money) by way of a court sanctioned scheme of arrangement under Part 26 of the Companies Act 2006 (the 'Scheme'). Awards outstanding under the Virgin Money Share Plans including the VM DBSP and VM LTIP, vested at the time of the Court sanction for the Scheme to the extent determined by the Virgin Money Remuneration Committee subject to the relevant plan and any deferral requirements under the PRA Remuneration Code.

 

On 16 March 2020 vestings took place under the VM DBSP and VM LTIP in respect of awards made to Hugh Chater in line with the PRA Remuneration Code. A portion of the shares received were sold to cover his respective tax liabilities and sale costs.  The sale of shares to cover tax liabilities is a standard procedure executed by the Company for all employees to cover the statutory tax and national insurance obligations that it is required to meet in respect of share awards.  

 

The shares acquired relate to the second tranche of the VM DBSP award for the full year of 2016; the first tranche of the VM LTIP award granted in 2016 and the final tranche of an award granted under the VM LTIP to compensate for forfeited awards from previous employment.

 

The net shares are subject to a further six-month holding period.
