Notes:

No consideration was paid for the grant of the awards which are structured as nil cost restricted share awards.

The awards will normally vest on the 9 April 2024 subject to the satisfaction of the performance conditions set by the Remuneration Committee of the Company.

The vesting of 70 per cent. of such awards (the "EPS Part") is subject to targets measuring the (end to end) percentage growth in the Company's EPS over the period 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2023. One quarter of the EPS Part will vest for EPS growth over the measurement period of 25 percent and thereafter on a straight line basis to full vesting of the EPS Part for EPS growth over the measurement period of 67 percent (or better).

The vesting of 30 per cent. of such awards (the "TSR Part") is subject to the Company's total shareholder return ("TSR") performance over a three year period relative to the TSR performance over the same period of the constituents of the FTSE 250 Index (excluding investment trusts and the Company) as the start of the measurement period. One quarter of the TSR Part will vest for median ranking performance and thereafter on a straight line basis to full vesting of the TSR Part for upper quartile ranking (or better) relative TSR performance.

In line with the Remuneration Policy approved by shareholders at the 2018 AGM a two-year post-vesting period will apply to this award.

Furthermore, the Remuneration Committee retains the discretion to adjust the Awards at vesting to ensure that all relevant factors are taken into account, including the consideration of any windfall gains.
