LTIP awards normally vest at the end of the three-year performance period, once the Remuneration Committee has determined achievement against the performance condition. The earliest release date of the LTIP will be 27 November 2023, subject to the participant continuing to hold office or employment within the Royal Mail Group, and then subject to a two-year holding period. On vesting, the Committee must also be satisfied that the performance of the Company against the three measures outlined below is reflective of the Company's underlying financial performance.

Executive Directors are required to retain any share-based awards until they achieve a shareholding equivalent of 200 per cent of salary. All other PDMRs are required to retain a shareholding equivalent of 100 per cent of salary.

The terms of these awards provide the Remuneration Committee with the ability to review the outcome at vesting taking into account the underlying performance of the business and it may consider making appropriate adjustments to reflect this.

The performance conditions are as follows.
