The Award in respect of ordinary shares of £0.01 each in the share capital of the Company (the Shares) was made at nil consideration and, upon vesting, the Shares subject to the Award will be acquired for nil consideration.  The Award is based on a share price of 30.77 pence, being the average middle market closing price of such Shares on the three dealing days immediately prior to the date the Award was made.

25% of the Shares will vest if the Company's TSR is equal to median among the Index, with 100% vesting if the Company outperforms the Index, achieving median +10% p.a. or above.  For performance between median and median +10% p.a. the Award will vest on a straight-line basis.  No Shares will vest in the event that the Company's TSR is below median.


The three-year performance period commenced on 10 December 2020 and will end on 9 December 2023, with performance measured against the Company's average share price over the 90-day dealing period to 10 December 2020.
