The options are exercisable in the period 15 March 2022 to 26 October 2027 at an exercise price of £0.00 per share.  It is anticipated that option exercises will be satisfied by the transfer of shares from the Company's employee benefit trust.


Vesting of the award and the receipt of shares will be based on the following criteria:

(2)     Fifty percent (50%) of the award will be based on the Company's relative TSR performance for the period from January / February 2019 to January / February 2022.  The Company's TSR performance shall be measured against the TSR performance of the companies (Comparator Group) within the FTSE Small Cap (ex IT) Index over the above period and must be at least at the median of a ranking of the TSR of each of the members of the Comparator Group.  Vesting will occur on a sliding scale between median (25%) and upper quartile (100%).
