GRANT OF NIL COST OPTIONS

 

Costain announces the following grant of share awards to certain Directors of the Company under the Costain Share Deferral Plan and the Long Term Incentive Plan as detailed in sections (A) and (B) below.

 

(A)    Costain Group PLC 2014 Share Deferral Plan

 

On 04 April 2018, awards over ordinary shares of 50p each in the Company were made under the Costain Group PLC 2014 Share Deferral Plan (the "Share Deferral Plan").

 

The awards granted under the Share Deferral Plan are structured as options over a number of shares with a nil exercise price (the "Awards").  No consideration was paid for the grant of the Awards.

 

Awards were made to the following Executive Directors:

 

Name of Director

Number of Shares Under the Awards

Andrew Wyllie

41,368

Anthony Bickerstaff

27,410

 

The Awards will become exercisable on or around the second anniversary of the date of grant subject to the Rules of the Share Deferral Plan. To the extent that all or any part of the Awards become exercisable, they will remain exercisable until the day before the tenth anniversary of the date of grant provided the individual remains an employee or officer of the Company.

 

 

(B)    Costain Group PLC 2014 Long Term Incentive Plan

On 04 April 2018, awards under the Costain Group PLC 2014 Long Term Incentive Plan (the "LTIP") were made over ordinary shares of 50p each in the Company in the form of options with a nil exercise price (the "Awards").  No consideration was paid for the grant of the Awards.

 

The vesting of the Awards is subject to the satisfaction of certain performance conditions. The Annual Report 2017 included proposed performance conditions. The performance conditions have now been finalised by the Remuneration Committee of the Company and are as follows:

 

(a)  an EPS target (relating to 75% of the Awards) of 117.2p (for 15% vesting) and 128.9p (for 100% vesting), with vesting on a straight-line basis between the two; and

(b)  a cash conversion target (relating to 25% of the Awards) of 80% (for 15% vesting) and 100% (for 100% vesting), with vesting on a straight-line basis between the two.

 

50% of the Awards will normally vest three years after grant, subject to the satisfaction of performance conditions over the three-year financial period ending 31 December 2020, whilst the remaining 50% of the Awards will normally vest on the fifth anniversary of the date of grant (with no further performance conditions required). The Awards will remain exercisable from the date of vesting of each half of the Awards until the day before the tenth anniversary of the date of grant provided the individual remains an employee or officer of the Company.

 

Awards were made to the following Executive Directors:
