The vesting of the Awards is conditional on meeting performance conditions measured over a three-year period as described below, with 50% vesting on the third anniversary of the date the Awards were made and 50% vesting after a further one year deferral period.

Performance conditions

1.       Earnings per Share Target

Up to 66.7% of the total Awards will vest on the achievement of the following adjusted earnings per share ("EPS") compound growth per annum targets for the three financial years ending 31 December 2019, 2020 and 2021 (the "Performance Condition Period") as shown in the following table:

Adjusted EPS compound growth per annum ("EPS Target")

Max. No. of Ordinary Shares vesting subject to the Adjusted EPS Target

6%

25% of total LTIP award

12%

100% of total LTIP award

Achievement of the EPS Target between 6% and 12% will result in the Awards vesting on a straight-line basis and any entitlement to a fraction of an Ordinary Share shall be rounded down.

 

2.       Total Shareholder Return ("TSR") Target

Up to 33.3% of the total Awards will vest dependent upon the performance of the Company's TSR measured against that of the FTSE250 over the Performance Condition Period. 25% of the total LTIP award will vest at median performance with 100% of the total LTIP award vesting at the upper quartile performance (above the 80th percentile).  Vesting between these points will be measured on a straight-line basis.

Malus and clawback provisions are also in place to reduce or recover the Awards for criteria such as any material misstatement of the financial statements, a serious breach of the Company's code of ethics or a serious health and safety issue.
