The award is subject to adjustment, malus & clawback (as set out in Group's policy) and the rules of the plan. A summary of the rules of the Plan is as follows:

 

·      Participants may purchase shares up to a maximum aggregate value of 80% of the amount of their bonus and/or 20% of their annual salary ('Investment Shares'). All of these amounts are net of the employee's national insurance and income tax paid. In consideration, the Company grants an option to allot a number of matching shares in proportion to the Investment Shares acquired on a grossed up for income tax basis. Matching shares awarded are capped at up to three times the number of Investment Shares purchased by the participant and vesting is subject to performance conditions.

 

·      For this award, a 2.25x matching rate was applied to the Investment Shares of the Executive Directors. Vesting of the options is subject to the Executive Directors' continued employment, the retention of these shares together with achieving certain financial performance and total shareholder return targets as measured over the three financial years commencing on 1 April 2020.
