Chris Weston and Heath Drewett have volunteered to defer 100% of their bonus in Aggreko shares and the Remuneration Committee has welcomed this gesture. The deferred share awards will be satisfied by market purchased shares.

The vesting of the awards is subject to continued employment and performance conditions based on the long-term financial performance of the Group set by the Remuneration Committee of the Company.

 

The performance period is the three financial years from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2022. D-EPS will be measured over the three-year performance period.  ROCE will be measured in the final year of the performance period. The performance criteria are as follows:

 

•     50% of the award is based on three-year D-EPS (aggregate measurement basis), with 25% of shares awarded against this element for D-EPS growth of 5% CAGR per annum. Awards will then continue to vest above that level and will increase straight-line to a maximum for 12% CAGR per annum growth; and

•     50% of the award is based on final year ROCE in the range of 13% to 18%, with 25% of shares awarded against this element if 2022 ROCE is 13%.  Awards will increase straight-line to the maximum at 18% ROCE in 2022.

 

Shares will vest after three years and will be subject to a further holding period of two years, with shares (post-tax) released on the fifth anniversary from date of grant. 

 

After consideration, the Remuneration Committee determined that the 2020 grants would be maintained at the standard levels. We acknowledge that, in common with many other companies we have seen a recent significant fall in our share price due to external factors. Under the LTIP rules, the Remuneration Committee has full discretion to ensure that the final outturns reflect all relevant factors, including consideration of any windfall gains.
