Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) - Lapse of 2014 Awards


The Company confirms that neither of the performance conditions associated with awards made under the LTIP on 2 April 2014 reached threshold performance conditions for vesting and hence all awards under the 2014 LTIP will lapse on their third anniversary on 2 April 2017. The performance conditions were based 50% on earnings per share growth and 50% on Total Shareholder Return performance compared to a comparator group.
