2017 Bonus Share Scheme Awards

 

The Company made 2017 Bonus Share Scheme awards to the Executive Directors under the Company's Bonus Share Scheme for the year ended 31 December 2017 on 29 March 2018.  The awards are for the deferred element of annual bonus and half will vest on the announcement of the Company's 2018 results and half on the announcement of the Company's 2019 results. 

 

The below notification, made in accordance with the requirements of article 19.3 of the EU Market Abuse Regulation, gives further details of the bonus share awards. 

 

As previously announced, given the continued very strong performance and financial position of the Group, having completed its annual review of the availability of surplus capital, the Board concluded to increase the Capital Return Plan to shareholders.  An interim dividend of 125p per share has been paid to shareholders today as an additional return of surplus capital.  A final dividend of 110p per share will be paid to shareholders on 2 July 2018, subject to approval by shareholders at our AGM on 25 April 2018.

 

The total value of the Capital Return Plan was increased to £13.00 per share to 2021, more than double the £6.20 per share original commitment made by the Board in 2012.
