The awards will generally vest following the end of the Performance Period on determination of the extent to which the performance conditions have been satisfied. No award can vest before 1 January 2020. The number of Ordinary Shares stated in the table above is the maximum number that could be issued to each director or PDMR upon full satisfaction of the performance conditions attaching to the RSUs.  The RSUs were granted for nil consideration.  Following vesting, each recipient will be required to make a payment of one pence per Ordinary Share on settlement of the RSUs.  All awards are subject to recovery and withholding provisions.
