Grant of Deferred Bonus Awards in
relation to the year ended 31 December 2019

 

As set out in the Company's Annual Report for the year ended 31 December 2019, annual bonuses in relation to 2019 performance were approved by the Remuneration Committee in March 2020 and, in line with the Company's Remuneration Policy, an element of the annual bonus is deferred into shares for three years for Executive Directors and other key employees. However, due to the uncertain outlook caused by COVID-19 and the fall in the Company's share price at that time, the Remuneration Committee took the decision to delay the grant of the Deferred Bonus Awards (the "Awards") from its normal timetable following the publication of its Full Year Results, until a more appropriate time.

Following a recovery in commodity markets over recent weeks, reflected in the recovery in the share price, and the approval of the Company's Remuneration Report at the Company's AGM on 25 June 2020, the Remuneration Committee concluded that it is now appropriate to make the Awards to all eligible employees in accordance with the Company's Remuneration Policy. 

The Awards have been granted in the form of contingent share awards over ordinary shares in the Company and will normally vest three years from the date of award. In line with corporate governance best practice the Committee will also take into account corporate performance and the shareholder experience with regard to the vesting of these Awards.

As a result of the above, Awards were granted to the Executive Directors named below in relation to 2019 annual bonuses above 50% of salary. The Awards were calculated by reference to the average of the mid-market closing prices over the five dealing days preceding the date of award, being £0.51184.
