Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities



Pursuant to the Company's obligations under Market Abuse Regulation 19, the Company hereby makes the following notifications in respect of its Executive Directors and their awards and vestings of ordinary shares of US$0.02 each in the Company (the 'Shares') under the Petrofac Performance Share Plan ('PSP') which took place on 6 March 2020. The Company takes the view that it is only its Directors who may be regarded as Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ('PDMRs').


These awards and vestings form part of the Company's annual bonus cycle. Details of each PDMR's position before and after the awards and vestings are outlined in the tables below.




PSP awards are made by the Company to senior executives and generally vest on the third anniversary of the date of grant, provided a participant does not leave the Company's employment and to the extent that performance conditions have been satisfied.  Awards are made at nil cost to participants.
