Long Term Incentive Plan 2020 - awards in respect of 2019/20

On 24 September 2020 (the "Grant Date") the following executive directors of the Company (each a person discharging managerial responsibilities) were granted awards, over ordinary shares of 10p each in the Company, under the Premier Foods Long Term Incentive Plan 2020 (the "LTIP"), as set out below.

Alex Whitehouse

Chief Executive Officer

Duncan Leggett

Chief Financial Officer

On appointment as CEO and acting CFO in 2019, the two executive directors were each entitled to receive an award under the LTIP for the 2019/20 financial period. However, as the Company was in a prohibited period, these awards have been delayed. The additional awards reflect their entitlement to shares as if the award had been made as originally intended. To ensure consistency with the original 2019/20 LTIP award, the same performance conditions, performance period and share price will apply. Each award is structured as a nil cost option to acquire shares for nil consideration. They will normally vest and become exercisable under the LTIP on the third anniversary of the Grant Date and remain exercisable until the day before the tenth anniversary of the Grant Date, subject to the participant continuing to hold an office or employment within the group and the achievement of two independent performance conditions. The first condition comprises of a relative total shareholder return based condition that will apply to two-thirds of the total number of shares held under an award and the second is an adjusted earnings per share based target that will apply to one-third of the total number of shares held under an award. No consideration was paid for the grant of the awards and no consideration shall be payable when an award is exercised.
