No consideration was paid for the grant of the LTIP Awards which are structured as nil cost options. The number of Ordinary Shares granted under each LTIP Award has been calculated using an Ordinary Share price of 191 pence per share (the closing share price on 9 April 2020).

 

The Remuneration Committee (the "Committee") recognises that LTIP Awards have been made during a period of market uncertainty due to COVID-19, and like many other companies we have seen a recent fall in our share price due to these external factors. However, the Committee believes that this is not specific to the Company and has determined that the price used to calculate the number of shares awarded is appropriate and consistent with the Company's historic practice.

The Committee intends to review the appropriateness of this approach taken in the context of further developments during the relevant performance period, to avoid any unacceptable 'windfall' gains. In line with the Remuneration Policy, on vesting the Committee will review this as part of its general consideration of the appropriateness of the formulaic assessment of the performance conditions.

The normal vesting date of the LTIP Awards will be 14 April 2023, being the third anniversary of the award date.

 

Once vested, the LTIP Award will normally be exercisable until the day before the tenth anniversary of the award date. A 2-year holding period will apply to these awards. 

 

The LTIP Awards will normally vest after 3 years based on the satisfaction of the following performance conditions: -

 

i.

33.3% on relative TSR against the FTSE 250 construction and building materials companies: Median performance (threshold); upper quartile performance (maximum);

ii.

33.3% on compound annual EPS growth: 3% p.a. compound growth (threshold); 10% p.a. compound growth (maximum) and

iii.

33.3% on average annual Return On Capital Employed ("ROCE"): 18.76% p.a. (threshold); 20.77% p.a. (maximum).

 

25% of the LTIP Award will vest for threshold performance under all measures, with straight line vesting in between to full vesting for the achievement of maximum performance.

 

On 14 April 2020 the Company also granted awards ("ADBP Awards") over Ordinary Shares in accordance with the rules of the Ibstock plc Annual and Deferred Bonus Plan ("ADBP").

These awards represent the deferral into Ordinary Shares of part of the Executive Directors' 2019 bonus entitlements under the rules of the ADBP.  

 

No consideration was paid for the grant of the ADBP Awards which are structured as nil cost options. The number of Ordinary Shares granted under each ADBP Award has been calculated in accordance with the rules of the ADBP using an Ordinary Share price of 276.16 pence being the average Ordinary Share price measured over the last 30 days of the financial year to which the bonus relates ending 31 December 2019.

 

The ADBP Awards will normally vest on 14 April 2023, subject to the participant being an employee of the Group at that time. Once vested, the ADBP Award will normally be exercisable until the day before the tenth anniversary of the award date.
