1Including those held by connected persons.

Both Mr Finch and Mr Davies have interests in Shares under vested but unexercised Share options (including, in the case of Mr Finch, his 2017 LTIP Option) and the deemed net of tax number of these Shares, assuming exercise of the vested Share options and satisfaction of income tax at a rate of 45% and employee NICs of 2% on such exercise, in which Mr Finch and Mr Davies have beneficial interests, is 340,509 Shares and 32,524 Shares, respectively

Represents maximum interests in Shares held pursuant to outstanding awards granted to Mr Finch and Mr Davies under the Company's Executive Deferred Bonus Plan and Long-Term Incentive Plan.

Approved CSOP awards are made alongside nil cost options awards made under the Company's Long-Term Incentive Plan where HMRC limits permit. PDMRs' interests in Shares under such approved CSOP awards are not included in these interests but, on their vesting and valid exercise, will have the effect of reducing PDMRs' interests in the vested Shares held under their corresponding nil cost options.

5 Mr Cosmen also has an interest in the 73,767,515 shares held by European Express Enterprises Limited and Northern Enterprises Limited but Mr Cosmen is no longer sufficiently closely connected with such companies for such interest to be classified as a beneficial interest for these notification purposes.

 

This above notice is given in fulfilment of the Company's obligation under DTR 3.1 and Article 19 of the EU Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014.
