("Duke Royalty", "Duke" or the "Company")

 

Long Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP") Awards

Issue of Ordinary Shares

 

Duke Royalty Limited (AIM: DUKE), a provider of alternative capital solutions to a diversified range of profitable and long-established businesses in Europe and abroad, announces that the Company's Remuneration Committee has approved the award of a total of 2,525,000 conditional rights to acquire ordinary shares of no par value ("Performance Share Awards" or "PSA's") under the Company's Long-Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP"). The LTIP framework was detailed within the Company's admission document which was published on 20 March 2017 and was put into place post Admission. 

The PSA's for the financial year to 31 March 2019 are as follows:

Neil Johnson - CEO

850,000 ordinary shares

Charlie Cannon Brookes - Executive Director

600,000 ordinary shares

Jim Webster - Chief Investment Officer

215,000 ordinary shares

Other Duke employees

860,000 ordinary shares

 

The PSA's vest after a period of three years and are subject to various performance conditions outlined in the Company's admission document (and available on the Company's website) and set by the Remuneration Committee, all in accordance with the LTIP rules. The LTIP Awards will be subject to performance conditions, (50 per cent. based on growth in total shareholder return ("TSR") and 50 per cent. on growth in total cash available for distribution per share ("TCAD per Share")). TSR can be defined as the returns generated by shareholders based on the combined value of the dividends paid out by the Company and the share price performance over the period in question.

 

In addition to the PSA's, the Remuneration Committee also approved the issuance of 87,000 new ordinary shares of no par value (the "New Ordinary Shares") in the Company. The New Ordinary Shares were issued in lieu of cash fees to members of the Investment Committee in recognition of the significant contribution made during the previous financial year. No other options or equity derivatives will be issued to employees by the Company this year.

 

Total Voting Rights

Application has been made for the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. The New Ordinary Shares will rank pari-passu with existing ordinary shares, and it is expected that admission will occur at 8.00 a.m. on 9 December 2019.

 

Following admission of the New Ordinary Shares, the Company's issued ordinary share capital will comprise 239,627,358 ordinary shares, each with voting rights. The figure of 239,627,358 should therefore be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
