The extent to which the Options will vest will be dependent (with 50:50 weighting) on earnings per share ("EPS") targets for the financial year ending 30 September 2023 and total shareholder return ("TSR") performance over a period ending on 30 September 2023 relative to a comparator group. In each case the proportion of Options vesting will be calculated on a sliding scale by reference to these targets. The targets for the EPS element will be set by the Remuneration Committee by no later than 22 April 2021. The comparator group for the TSR element is the constituents of the FTSE 250 Index (excluding investment trusts) as at the grant date, which is the start of the measurement period for the TSR element.

The Options have a normal vesting date on the third anniversary of the grant date and ordinarily will be forfeited in the event of cessation of employment ahead of the vesting date. The Options granted to Richard Thompson and Des Glass are each subject to a holding period condition under which any shares acquired under the Options (net of sales for tax and national insurance) must be retained until at least the fifth anniversary of the grant date.

Once vested, Options ordinarily will remain exercisable in respect of their vested shares until the tenth anniversary of the award's grant date.
