On 5 September 2019, the Directors and PDMRs listed below completed the exercise of nil-cost options over Shares in the capital of the Company, granted under the PSP on 29 June 2015 and 27 June 2016 respectively and deferred shares under the ABP on 7 June 2017.

PSP 2016 

On 27 June 2019, awards in the form of nil-cost options under the PSP that vested became eligible for exercise. Awards granted had a three year performance criteria based on earnings per share ("EPS") (75% of total award) and Return on Capital Employed ("ROCE") (25% of total award).
