Director/PDMR Shareholding

 

 

On 1 March 2019, Dave Jenkinson, Group Chief Executive, and Mike Killoran, Group Finance Director, exercised awards under the Company's 2012 Long Term Incentive Plan ("2012 LTIP") and the Company's Bonus Share Scheme.

2012 LTIP

Dave Jenkinson and Mike Killoran received 384,677 and 537,801 shares respectively, both net of their respective income tax and national insurance liabilities.   Neither Dave Jenkinson nor Mike Killoran sold any of the shares acquired on 1 March 2019 under the 2012 LTIP.

Under the rules of the 2012 LTIP Dave Jenkinson is required to hold 50% of the shares received for at least twelve months. Consequently, Dave Jenkinson will hold a minimum of 192,338 of these shares until at least 29 February 2020.

 

As previously announced, Mike Killoran has agreed to extend until 6 July 2021 the holding period applying to 50% of any shares under any second vest other than shares sold to cover tax liabilities. Consequently, Mike Killoran will hold a minimum of 268,900 of these shares until at least 6 July 2021. 

 

Bonus Share Scheme

 

Dave Jenkinson and Mike Killoran exercised options over shares awarded to them under the Company's Bonus Share Scheme for bonus earned for the 2016 and 2017 financial years. Also on 1 March 2019, Dave Jenkinson and Mike Killoran sold ordinary shares in the Company to settle tax liabilities arising on the exercise of these Bonus Share Scheme options.
