The LTIP Performance Shares Awards will vest and become exercisable on the third anniversary of their grant date subject to the grantee's continued employment and to the extent to which the average Return of Capital Employed (ROCE) and relative total shareholder return (TSR) performance conditions set for the LTIP Performance Shares Awards are met, summary details of which are shown below:

ROCE (70% of total award)

Below 9%

9%

11.2%

13% or more


Below Threshold (0% vesting)

Threshold (25% vesting)

On-target (50% vesting)

Ranking of easyJet's TSR (30% of total award)

< Median

Median

Upper quartile


Below Threshold (0% vesting)

Threshold (25% vesting)

Maximum (100% vesting)

Awards vest on a straight-line basis between these points.

The LTIP ROCE targets set out above are based on average headline ROCE over the three year performance period (being three years from 1 October 2016). The performance measures for the headline ROCE targets will be based on headline profit.  For the avoidance of doubt, headline profit is also used in the performance measures for the bonus targets for the year ended 30 September 2017.

 

The TSR targets are based on relative TSR compared to companies ranked FTSE 51 to 150 at the start of the performance period, where the average share price is calculated over three months at the start and end of the period. In addition, in order for the TSR-based awards to vest, easyJet must have achieved positive absolute TSR performance over the performance period.
