These awards are subject to the following performance conditions:

1.  The basis of the performance measurement in respect of the 620,696 options is based solely on the share price movement over 365 days following the date of grant. The baseline share price ("Baseline Share Price") has been set at £0.57 which is the average of the closing prices of the Company's Ordinary Shares over the 5 business days leading up to and including the 14 June 2021 date of grant.

The share price measurement will be the average of the closing prices of the Company's Ordinary Shares over the 5 business days leading up to and including 14 June 2022 (the performance measurement date). In normal circumstances the shares will vest on 14 June 2024.

 

2.  The proportion of the 620,696 options subject to performance conditions (the "Performance Awards") that will Vest will be subject to the following measurements:

a.  Should the share price increase by 10% or less over the Baseline Share Price then no Performance Awards will Vest.

b.  Should the share price increase by more than 50% over the Baseline Share Price then 100% of the Performance Awards will Vest.

c.  Should the share price increase by between 10% and 50% over the Baseline Share Price then a proportional calculation will be used to calculate the percentage of the Performance Awards that will Vest.

d.  Examples of this proportional Vesting is detailed below:

i.  Should the share price increase by between 11% and 19% over the Baseline Share Price, 2.5% of the Performance Awards will Vest.

ii. Should the share price increase by between 20% and 29% over the Baseline Share Price, 25% of the Performance Awards will Vest.

iii.  Should the share price increase by between 30% and 39% over the Baseline Share Price, 50% of the Performance Awards will Vest.
