Under the LTIP, selected employees are entitled to exercise an option to receive a certain number of Shares at any time after a three-year vesting period, at a cost to the employee of the nominal value of the Shares.  The number of Shares that are awarded at the end of the three-year period is dependent on the achievement of certain performance criteria.


Vesting of the LTIP awards is dependent on achievement of total shareholder return (‘TSR’).  If TSR on Shares is 200% or more at the end of three years following the award, all of the Shares awarded will vest.  If TSR is 100%, then 25% of the awarded Shares will vest.  Between these points the number of Shares that vest will be pro-rata.  If TSR is less than 100% then no Shares will vest.  The limit on the number of Shares over which interests may be awarded remains unchanged.

Any entitlement under the LTIP will lapse on cessation of employment prior to the end of the three-year vesting period, unless cessation of employment is by reason of redundancy, ill health or death.

In addition to these awards, it is the intention of the Remuneration Committee to implement a share matching scheme for executive directors and PDMRs for shares acquired within a year of any fundraising event.
