Chief Executive



Adam Crozier

Adam Crozier will join the Company as Chief Executive on 26 April 2010. His ongoing fixed remuneration will comprise a base salary of £775,000 per annum, a pension contribution at 9% of base salary, other typical benefits and a twelve month notice period. He will be entitled to participate in a performance-linked annual bonus scheme on the same basis as other executive directors. The bonus criteria have been reset by the new Board and will be stretching.

On joining Adam will also be awarded a one-off opportunity to receive up to 4,115,044 shares in ITV in 2013, subject to delivering stretching outperformance over a 3 year period. The award will be made in nil cost options and up to 75% will vest only if ITV delivers higher than median Total Shareholder Return performance against the two comparator groups outlined in the Performance Share Plan (PSP) section of the Remuneration Report over the period. No options will vest for below median performance, with full vesting only if ITV delivers upper quartile performance. The remaining options will vest subject to the achievement of strategic measures. Adam will be entitled to participate in further awards under the PSP from 2011 in line with other executive directors as agreed by the Remuneration Committee. Under ITV's remuneration policy, such PSP awards are currently capped at 150% of salary. Adam will also be expected to comply with the ITV Executive Director shareholding guidelines of owning shares in ITV equivalent to 100% of salary.

An additional award of £200,000 in cash and £420,000 in restricted shares will be made conditional on his joining as expected on 26 April 2010. The shares will vest in three equal tranches over an 18 month period.
