Notes:

1.    Subject to performance criteria as set out below.

2.    Andy O'Brien forfeited share awards on leaving his last employer. In accordance with the Volution Remuneration Policy, the Remuneration Committee approved the grant of additional awards to Andy O'Brien to partially compensate him for remuneration forgone at his previous employer. These LTIP awards were granted to replicate as far as possible, the likely value and time horizons associated with the share awards forfeited at his previous employer. The LTIP awards will vest, subject to continued employment with Volution after the time period set out above and will not be subject to any performance conditions, reflecting the criteria of the forfeited share awards. He will be required to exercise these LTIP awards at the normal vesting date and hold at least 50% of the shares (after the deduction of income tax and national insurance) in order to build up a shareholding of 200% of base salary in accordance with the Volution Share Ownership Guidelines.

3.    In accordance with the Volution Remuneration Policy, these LTIP awards are subject to a three year vesting period followed by an additional two year holding period before they can be exercised.   

 

Those LTIP awards set out above which are subject to performance criteria will vest subject to the achievement of performance against Earnings per Share growth targets and relative Total Shareholder Return (against a direct peer group), measured over a three year performance period. The amounts shown above represent the maximum number of nil-cost options which could vest.   

 

The price used to calculate the number of LTIP awards was £1.76 per ordinary share, being the average of the mid-market closing price of a Volution ordinary share on the three consecutive business days immediately preceding the date of grant. No consideration was paid for the LTIP awards.

 

Deferred Share Bonus Plan

 

 

DSBP award

Ronnie George, Chief Executive Officer

 

43,271

 

As set out in the Volution Remuneration Policy in the Annual Report and Accounts, under the Company's Annual Bonus Plan ("ABP") for the financial year ended 31 July 2019, one third of any bonus payment earned by the Executive Directors will normally be deferred into awards over the Company's shares.

 

The DSBP award set out above was made in the form of a conditional award, which will, subject to the rules of the DSBP, have a normal vesting date of 15 October 2022. No consideration was paid for the DSBP award and no consideration is due to be payable on vesting.

 

The attached notifications, made pursuant to Article 19(3) of the Market Abuse Regulation, provide further details.
