Further information for shareholders regarding

remuneration policy for executive directors


London, UK - 3 April 2014: Spirent Communications plc ("the Company") (LSE: SPT), a leading communications technology company, would like to announce:


Following discussions with shareholder representatives, the Remuneration Committee would like to clarify that any additional cash or share-based awards offered on recruitment of an executive director which may fall outside the policy statement on pages 60 to 62 of the Annual Report 2013 would be performance-related and would therefore be regarded as variable remuneration and fall within the Company's standard 400% cap.


The Remuneration Committee does not envisage any cash payment being offered which could be construed as a "golden hello".


Tom Maxwell

Chairman of the Remuneration Committee
