Director Dealings - APSP Share Option and Deferred Share awards

 

Director/PDMR Shareholding

Norcros announces that the Board, following a recommendation from the Remuneration Committee, has granted new share options to the following Directors under the Company's Approved Performance Share Plan (the "APSP") and Deferred Bonus Plan (the "DBP") on 21 July 2021.

The notifications below, made in accordance with the requirements of the EU Market Abuse Regulation ("MAR"), provides further detail.

APSP Share Option Awards

The Company has today granted the following unapproved nil cost share option awards under the APSP in respect of the current financial year (the "APSP Awards") to an Executive Director of the Company over ordinary shares of ten pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares"). 

Under the APSP, awards are made subject to performance targets relating to improvements in the Company's Earnings Per Share ("EPS").  Vesting of these Ordinary Shares will be subject to achieving aggregate diluted EPS targets over a three year performance period, starting with the 2022 financial year.

The APSP Awards will normally vest on the third anniversary of their grant, subject to satisfactory achievement of the performance targets.  No consideration was paid for the APSP Awards.

Bonus payment - Deferred Share Awards

Under the annual bonus scheme, 50 per cent. of an Executive Director's total bonus for the year is satisfied in cash, with the other 50 per cent. in the form of nil cost options under the DBP.  These options represent 50 per cent. of the bonuses earned by the Executive Directors for the 2021 financial year.  

Norcros therefore also announces the grant of the following nil cost share option awards under the DBP in respect of the year ended 31 March 2021 (the "Deferred Awards") to the relevant Executive Director of the Company over Ordinary Shares.

The Deferred Awards will normally vest on the third anniversary of their grant.  Because these shares represent part of a bonus already earned, no consideration was paid for the Deferred Awards and no consideration is due to be payable on vesting.
