1 Role Based Pay is payable quarterly and is subject to a holding period with restrictions lifting over five years (20% each year).

 

2 Tax liabilities on the Shares provided were met in cash and the number of Shares actually received by each individual was reduced by the value required to meet those tax liabilities.

 

3 Share Value Plan (SVP) / Joiners Share Value Plan (JSVP)

The SVP was introduced in March 2010.  SVP awards are granted to participants over Shares which may typically be released over a period of three years in equal annual tranches dependent on future service and the plan rules.  Discretionary dividend equivalent payments may also be made to participants on release of a SVP award.  SVP awards are also made to eligible employees for recruitment purposes under schedule 1 to the SVP (JSVP).  Since 2014, the shares released to Directors and PDMRs have been subject to a six-month holding period after release.

 

Executive Share Award Scheme (ESAS)

ESAS is a historical plan and new awards are no longer made under the plan.  ESAS awards were granted to participants in the form of provisional allocations of Shares by an independent trustee.  The ESAS award must normally be held for at least three years.  Subject to the plan rules and trustee discretion, Shares under ESAS awards are typically released after three years, at which point additional bonus Shares are awarded to participants.  If the participant does not withdraw the award Shares until the fifth anniversary of the award date, a further 10% bonus Shares may be released.  Dividend Shares may also be released by the ESAS trustee.  All awards are subject to potential forfeiture.
