Annual Report 2018 - Remuneration Policy Correction


An incorrect version of the Company's Annual Report for the period ended 31 December 2018 was made available on the Company's website and filed with the National Storage Mechanism on 27 March 2019.


The incorrect version contained an error related to the Company's Remuneration Policy and its statement regarding the application of malus and clawback to executive remuneration (page 90 of the 2018 Annual Report).


The final paragraph of this section should read:


"Clawback may be applied for up to two years following cash payment of an Annual Incentive and vesting under the LTIP, and up to three years following the granting of awards under the Company's deferred bonus arrangements."


In compliance with Listing Rule 9.6.1R, the corrected 2018 Annual Report has today been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at and is also available in the Investors section of the Spirent Communications plc website at .



Note: printed copies of the Company's 2018 Annual Report which were mailed to shareholders on 27 March 2019 contained the correct text and will not be replaced.
