RNS ANNOUNCEMENT: The information communicated in this announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of Regulation 596/2014.

Trinity Exploration & Production plc

("Trinity" or "the Group" or "the Company")

Director/PDMR shareholding

Grant under the Long-Term Incentive Plan

Trinity Exploration & Production plc (AIM: TRIN), the independent E&P company focused on Trinidad and Tobago, announces that on 9 May 2019 the Company issued awards under its Long-Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP").

These awards have been made in accordance with the policy announced to the market on 25 August 2017 and have been made to certain individuals within the Company in respect of the performance of the Company as at the end of the financial year ended 31 December 2018.

As a result, the Company announces the grant of Options over 3,832,824 ordinary shares (representing 1 per cent of the Company's issued share capital) under the LTIP on 9 May 2019, including the awards to Executive Directors shown in the table below.

 
 Name                    Position              NUMBER OF ORDINARY SHARES 
                                                SUBJECT TO THE OPTION 
 Bruce Dingwall          Executive Chairman    991,685 
                        ====================  ========================== 
                         Chief Financial 
 Jeremy Bridglalsingh     Officer              661,124 
                        ====================  ========================== 
 

The above Options will vest on 2 January 2022, subject to meeting the performance criteria set and continued employment in the Company, the Options are exercisable at nil cost by the participants.

The LTIP Awards are subject to the achievement of relative Total Shareholder Return ("TSR") performance targets measured over a three-year performance period ending on 31 December 2021. The amounts shown above represent the maximum possible opportunity.

TSR is the increase in share price plus the value of any dividends paid over a period of time and captures the full return shareholders see on an investment. Relative TSR is the comparison of these returns against peer companies over a set period of time. For Trinity, the performance will be assessed over a three year period.

The Relative TSR ranking will be determined by calculating the three month average TSR to the end of the performance period and dividing this by the three month average TSR to the beginning of the performance period for all companies in the agreed comparator group. Companies will be ranked on this basis with the highest performing company ranked first. The share price used to calculate the start of the TSR calculation in respect of these awards is based on the three month average TSR leading into 2 January 2019, being 14.66p.

The amount of the award which will vest at the end of the three year period is based on performance against a comparator group. Threshold vesting occurs when Trinity is ranked at median against the comparator group and maximum vesting occurs when Trinity is ranked at upper quartile (or above). The table below shows the level of vesting at threshold and maximum:

Vesting occurs on a straight line basis between threshold and maximum.

 
 Performance                         Vesting 
 Below the Median                    None of the award will vest 
                                    ------------------------------- 
 Median (50(th) percentile)          30% of the maximum award will 
                                      vest 
                                    ------------------------------- 
 Between Median and Upper Quartile   Straight Line basis between 
                                      these points 
                                    ------------------------------- 
 Upper Quartile (75%)                100% of the maximum award will 
                                      vest. 
                                    ------------------------------- 
 Above the Upper Quartile            100% of the maximum award will 
                                      vest 
                                    ------------------------------- 
 

The comparator group has been created using the following filters:

Sector: FTSE AIM All Share Oil & Gas constituents

Size: Market capitalisation of between GBP20 million - GBP400 million

Further relevance filter: Exploration & Production operations, excluding Oil equipment and services and Alternative energy

These filters create a comparator group which excludes larger companies that may be expected to be on the main list and micro explorers that can show extreme volatility and which can be numerous at certain points in the business cycle. For 2018, the market cap range of GBP20m-GBP400m has been deemed appropriate, but the Remuneration Committee will review the appropriate range for each new LTIP grant.
