Caledonia Investments plc

Notification of transactions by persons discharging managerial responsibilities

In accordance with Disclosure Rule 3.1.4R(1), Caledonia Investments plc ("Caledonia") announces the following changes in the interests of persons discharging managerial responsibilities ("PDMRs") (all of whom are executive directors of Caledonia) in the ordinary shares of Caledonia ("Shares") arising out of the transactions set out below.

Caledonia Investments plc 1998 Executive Share Option Scheme (the "1998 Option Scheme")

On 30 March 2010, executive directors of Caledonia exercised options granted on 26 May 2004 under the rules of the 1998 Option Scheme as shown in table 1 below. The exercise price of the options was 1055p per Share.

The rules of the 1998 Option Scheme provide that, subject to the attainment of performance targets, one third of the Shares under each option may be exercised three years after the date of grant, with the balance becoming exercisable six years after the date of grant. Caledonia's Remuneration Committee has amended the 1998 Option Scheme such that certain options granted on 26 May 2004 (which have already met all of their performance targets and would ordinarily have become fully exercisable on 26 May 2010) may be exercised on or after 25 March 2010.  

On 30 March 2010, executive directors of Caledonia also exercised other options granted under the 1998 Option Scheme as shown in table 2 below:

Mr Ingram subsequently gifted the Shares that he retained to one of his sons.

 

Caledonia Investments plc Deferred Bonus Plan (the "Deferred Bonus Plan")

Also on 30 March 2010, executive directors of Caledonia waived certain deferred awards that were granted to them on 31 May 2007 and 3 June 2008 as shown in column 1 in tables 4 and 5 below.  Pursuant to a minor amendment to the rules of the Deferred Bonus Plan approved by Caledonia's Remuneration Committee, these executive directors were subsequently granted vested restricted Share awards over an equivalent number of Shares (column 2) with sufficient Shares then being sold, at a price of 1652p per Share, to discharge liabilities to income tax and employee national insurance contributions ("NICs") arising in respect of receipt of the vested restricted Shares (column 3).  The post-tax number of Shares in the vested restricted Share awards (column 4) must be retained until the end of the relevant retention period of the original awards in order for the executive director to qualify (where applicable) for matching shares under the Deferred Bonus Plan.  The vested restricted Shares that were granted in relation to compulsory deferral awards are subject to forfeiture (together with an obligation to reimburse to Caledonia an amount equivalent to the income tax and employee NICs paid on the vesting of the restricted Shares) in the event that the executive director ceases employment with Caledonia in certain circumstances before the end of the relevant retention period.
