A summary of the rules of the Bonus Deferral and Share Matching Plan is as follows:

 

The Company announced in November 2011 that following consultation with its major shareholders, the Remuneration Committee of the Board approved the establishment of a salary sacrifice, bonus deferral and share matching plan whereby the executive directors and certain senior managers have the opportunity to elect to invest up to 20% of annual salary and up to 80% of annual bonus in Ordinary Shares. Subject to continued employment, the retention of these shares and the meeting of certain financial performance targets, the investment will be matched and grossed up for income taxes, to 2.0x the investment made by matching shares, in the form of options with a nominal value exercise price, which will, subject to these conditions, vest after three years.
