The Options will vest, subject to the achievement of certain performance conditions, over a 3 year period from the date of grant, and will expire 1 year after the third anniversary of grant. Vesting of the Options is conditional on the achievement of stretching earnings per share and total shareholder return targets, and are only exercisable from the third anniversary of the date of grant.
