Director/PDMR Notification

 

Ocado Group plc ("the Company") announces that it had notification from five Executive Directors (the "Directors"), in connection with their participation in the Ocado Annual Incentive Plan ("AIP").

 

On 20 March 2020, the Ocado Directors were granted awards under the AIP in the form of nil-cost Options (the "Award") over such ordinary shares of 2 pence each in the Company.

 

The AIP was approved by Shareholders at the Company's Annual General Meeting on 1 May 2019. The AIP Award is the first such award to be made under the AIP.

 

No payment is required for the grant of the AIP Award, or issue of the shares on vesting. For these AIP Awards, the number of shares was determined based on a price of 1446.785 pence per share, being the middle market quotation of the Company's ordinary shares on 19 March 2020.

 

A summary of the principal terms of the AIP are set out in the Notice of the Annual General Meeting dated 5 February 2019.
