Grant of Awards under the Company's Long Term Incentive Plan 2012
Long Term Incentive Plan 2012 (the "LTIP")
The independent trustee (the "Trustee") of the Company's Employees' Benefit Trust based in Jersey (the "Trust") notified the Company that on 4 December 2019 it granted an award under the LTIP to acquire ordinary shares in the capital of the Company in the form of nil-cost options to Jim Mullen, a Person Discharging Managerial Responsibility ("PDMR"), in the amount set out below. The award to Jim Mullen represents an award equating to 200% of his base salary for 2019 and relates to the terms of his appointment in August 2019.
Under the terms of the LTIP, Awards normally vest on the third anniversary of their date of grant subject to the satisfaction of conditions relating to the performance of the Company over the three financial years to which an award relates (the "Performance Period"). Upon vesting, awards are subject to a holding period of a further two years. During the holding period restrictions will apply to the sale or other disposal of the shares.
The awards will be exercisable based on two performance measures. 60% of the shares under award depend on the satisfaction of an Absolute TSR Condition. 40% of the shares under award depend on the satisfaction of a Net Cash Flow performance condition (the "Performance Conditions"). The Performance Conditions are as set out in the announcement dated 12 March 2019 ("LTIP Announcement").
The base price for calculating the level of award was 97.7p, the average market closing price between 29 November 2019 and 3 December 2019.
