DIRECTOR / PDMR SHAREHOLDING

Vesting and Exercise of Performance Share Awards under Spirent Long-Term Incentive Plan

 

The Company confirms that on 16 May 2022 the performance conditions attached to Performance Shares awarded to Eric Updyke and Paula Bell on 16 May 2019 were tested, with the following results:

 

50% of award subject to EPS performance condition  74.9% vest

50% of award subject to TSR performance condition  100% vest

 

As a result, the following shares vested and became exercisable:

 

Eric Updyke  465,821 shares

Paula Bell  241,603 shares

 

Awards of Performance Shares under the Spirent Long-Term Incentive Plan are not tax approved and income tax and social security deductions become payable by the individual on vesting; both Mr Updyke and Ms Bell sold sufficient vested shares to settle these liabilities.

 

Details of both the vesting and the sale to cover tax liabilities are set out below.

 

Under the Company's Directors' Remuneration Policy in place at the time of the original award, both Mr Updyke and Ms Bell are required to retain the balance of the vested shares for a period of two years.  These shares will remain subject to clawback during the post-vesting holding period.
