easyJet PLC

Replacement - Director/PDMR Shareholding

RNS Number : 8639A
easyJet PLC
14 September 2018
 

14 September 2018

 

An amendment to the 'Director/PDMR shareholding' announcement released on 20 December 2017 at 16:57 under RNS No 9844Z has been made.  The number of actual awards granted to Andrew Findlay was 72,621 (being 200% of his £500k salary).  However, the original RNS announcement incorrectly stated 76,621.  The relevant figures, including the aggregate volume figure (which includes Andrew's DSBP award), are now correctly shown in the tables below.  All other details remain unchanged.

 

easyJet plc ("the Company")

 

Director/PDMR shareholding

 

The Company announces that on 19 December 2017, the following Executive Directors and other PDMR, as set out against their names in the tables below, were granted awards over 27 2/7 p ordinary shares in the capital of the Company under the Company's relevant Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) and Deferred Share Bonus Plan (DSBP), as applicable.

The LTIP Awards will vest and become exercisable on the third anniversary of their grant date (i.e. on 19 December 2020) subject to the grantee's continued employment and to the extent to which the average Return of Capital Employed (ROCE), total headline Earnings Per Share (EPS) and relative total shareholder return (TSR) performance conditions set for the LTIP Awards are met, summary details of which are shown further below. 

 

In addition, as disclosed in the Company's 2017 Annual report and accounts, the Executive Directors are required to retain the after-tax value of any shares under the LTIP award for a further two years from the vesting date (i.e. until 19 December 2022). The Executive Directors are also expected to build and maintain a shareholding equivalent of at least 200% of salary (CEO) 175% of salary (CFO) over a five year period following appointment.

The LTIP Awards part-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 2017).

 

The EPS targets set out above are based on the aggregate of the headline EPS for each financial year of the same three year performance period.

 

The TSR targets are based on relative TSR performance over the same three year performance period. The Company's TSR performance as compared to the TSRs of a comparator group of companies being those ranked FTSE 51 to 150 at the start of the performance period. Three month averaging periods are used prior to the start and end of the performance period. Regardless of relative TSR performance, in addition, easyJet must have achieved positive absolute TSR performance over the performance period for any part of the TSR element to be capable of vesting.

The Deferred Share Bonus Plan Awards relate to a required deferral of a portion of annual bonus and shall ordinarily vest and become exercisable on the third anniversary of their grant date (i.e. on 19 December 2020) subject to the grantee's continued employment.

The LTIP Awards and the Deferred Share Bonus Plan Awards were granted as nil cost option awards other than in the case of the LTIP Award to Mr Carey which was granted as a conditional award.

 

Further details relating to the operation of the LTIP and DSBP can be found within the 2017 Annual report and accounts which are available on the Company's website.

 

As previously disclosed within the 2017 Annual report and accounts, Carolyn McCall, who stepped down from the Board and her position as Chief Executive Officer on 30 November 2017, will not be eligible for an annual bonus payment for the 2017 financial year or the 2018 financial year and will therefore not receive an award under the DSBP.  All of her unvested LTIP awards have lapsed and her DSBP awards made in previous years will lapse in full beyond the end of her employment date of 31 December 2017.

 

Set out below are the notifications, made in accordance with the requirements of the EU Market Abuse Regulation, in relation to the LTIP and DSBP.
