6 August 2019

 

RECKITT BENCKISER GROUP PLC

(the "Company" or "RB")

 

CEO DESIGNATE REMUNERATION

DIRECTOR/PDMR SHAREHOLDING

 

Further to the announcement on 12 June 2019 confirming the appointment of Laxman Narasimhan as Chief Executive Officer Designate of the Company, with effect from 16 July 2019, and Chief Executive Officer from 1 September 2019, and the remuneration outlined within, the Company announces the following detailed remuneration arrangements for Laxman Narasimhan.

 

Laxman's service contract, remuneration and benefits are consistent with RB's remuneration policy approved by shareholders at the AGM on 9 May 2019.

 

As set out when his appointment was announced, as part of Laxman's remuneration arrangements, he is eligible to receive an initial grant of share awards under the Company's long-term incentive plan over ordinary shares of 10 pence each in the share capital of the Company ("Shares"), as well as awards to compensate for remuneration arrangements forfeited on leaving his previous employer, Pepsico, Inc ("Replacement Awards").

 

LTIP Award

On 5 August 2019, a grant of 75,000 performance share awards and 150,000 share options was made under the Reckitt Benckiser Group plc 2015 Long Term Incentive Plan to Laxman Narasimhan. The number of Shares and options disclosed is the maximum that will vest if the stretching performance conditions for the three-year performance period ending on 31 December 2021 are satisfied in full.  Further details of the performance targets are set out in the Company's 2018 Annual Report. The awards granted are subject to a two-year holding period following the end of the three-year performance period. Options will be exercisable at £63.72 per share. 

 

Replacement Awards

On the same day Laxman was granted Replacement Awards with a target amount of 89,300 Shares:

·    Of this, 40,890 performance shares were awarded in relation to the long-term incentive award over Pepsico, Inc shares granted to Laxman in March 2017, and vesting based on Pepsico, Inc's performance over the three-year period ending in December 2019. 40,890 Shares may vest in March 2020 based on target performance, with full vesting of 71,557 shares if conditions are met in full.

·    48,410 performance shares were awarded in relation to the long-term incentive award over Pepsico, Inc shares granted to Laxman in March 2018, and vesting based on Pepsico, Inc's's performance over the three-year period ending in December 2020. 48,410 Shares may vest in March 2021 based on target performance, with full vesting of 84,717 shares if conditions are met in full.

 

These two Replacement Awards will accrue RB dividend equivalents from the time of grant to the time of vesting.

 

There will be no retesting of any of the above awards.  No consideration was paid for the grant of these awards.  The Replacement Awards will be satisfied by Shares purchased in the market.

 

On the same day, Laxman also received Replacement Awards in the form of cash awards

·    A target cash amount of £1,043,959 was awarded in relation to the long-term cash award granted to Laxman in March 2017, and vesting based on Pepsico, Inc's performance over the three-year period ending in December 2019 and payable in March 2020.

·    A target cash amount of £1,252,751 was awarded in relation to the long-term cash award granted to Laxman in March 2018, and vesting based on Pepsico Inc's performance over the three-year period ending in December 2020 and payable in March 2021.

·    The maximum extent to which the performance conditions can be satisfied is 200%, such that the maximum cash amount that Laxman may receive will be £2,087,918 in March 2020 and £2,505,502 in March 2021.   

 

The table below summarises the Replacement Awards, which in line with our previous announcement regarding Laxman's appointment are being made on a like for like basis, remaining subject to Pepsico performance and on the same timescales:
