2020 Awards - Notification of Transactions by

Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ('PDMRs')

 

Pursuant to the notification obligations under EU Market Abuse Regulations Article 19.1 the Company granted awards over its ordinary shares of 10 pence each under the Performance Share Plan ('PSP') and Restricted Share Plan ('RSP') on 22 June 2020 to the PDMRs set out below.

 

In addition, the Executive Directors elected to defer a proportion of their annual 2019 cash bonus into Company shares. Deferred bonus share awards were made in the form of nil-cost options that become exercisable after two years. Options are then exercisable until the tenth anniversary of the grant date.

 

PSP awards granted to PDMRs in the UK were made in the form of nil-cost options, which become exercisable following the end of a three-year performance period, subject to the satisfaction of performance targets. Options are then exercisable until the tenth anniversary of the date of grant.

 

PSP awards granted to PDMRs in Turkey were made in the form of a nil-cost conditional share award and will be transferred following the end of a three-year performance period, subject to the satisfaction of performance targets.

 

The PSP performance period will run from 3 April 2020 to 2 April 2023.

 

RSP awards granted to PDMRs in the UK were made in the form of nil-cost options and become exercisable in three tranches; 25% on 3 April 2021, 25% on 3 April 2022 and 50% on 3 April 2023.

 

Following vesting, shares granted under the PSP and RSP are subject to the Company's retention policy under which Executive Committee members are required to retain shares for an additional two years.
