Notes:

1.  Includes the 2014 DBP awards to be met by market purchased shares held by the Oxford Biomedica Employee Trust

 

 

Under the terms of the 2015 DBP, the DBP awards will become exercisable as to one third of the shares subject to each award on each of the first three anniversaries of the grant date.

 

The 2020 LTIP awards are subject to a three year performance period and become exercisable from the third anniversary of the grant date, subject to the satisfaction of a performance condition.

 

The Award shall Vest by reference to an equal weight between the compounded annual growth rate of the Company's Share Price, calculated by comparing the average closing share price over the five Dealing Days immediately preceding the start of the Performance Period of 760.0p with the average share price of the Company over the three months immediately preceding the end of the Performance Period, in accordance with the TSR table below, and the compounded annual growth rate of the Company's Revenues calculated by comparing the audited Revenue figure as of 31 December 2019 preceding the start of the Performance period of £64.1m, with the audited Revenue figure as of 31 December 2022, in accordance with the Revenue table below.

There will also be a performance underpin, such that the awards would only vest to the extent that the Remuneration Committee considers that the overall performance of the business across the period justifies it. The share price at the third anniversary of the grant date will also be averaged across the three month period immediately preceding the end of the performance period to avoid rewarding for short term spikes in performance. Clawback and malus provisions will apply to the awards.

In addition, on 26 June 2020 nil-cost share options over 9,642 shares of 50 pence each in the Company were also granted to Alex Lewis, Chief of Staff, under the Oxford Biomedica 2015 Executive Share Option Scheme ("ESOS"). The 2020 ESOS award is not subject to performance conditions and will become exercisable at 760.0p from the third anniversary of the grant date. The total shares over which options are held by Alex Lewis are 64,821, representing 0.08% of the issued capital under option.
