Long Term Incentive Plan Awards

Further to the announcement on 18 March 2020, on 4 June 2020, Simon Pryce, Chief Executive Officer, was granted 10,410 awards over ordinary shares of 5 pence each in the Company ("Awards") under the Ultra Electronics Long Term Incentive Plan 2017 ("LTIP") on the same terms as those granted as at 17 March 2020..  

The Awards are in the form of nil price options.  Additional shares may be delivered equivalent to the value of dividends received from grant to vesting (and, in the case of options, during the holding period mentioned below).


The awards will normally vest on the 17th March 2023, subject to continued employment and the satisfaction of performance conditions (each applicable to a quarter of the award) based upon relative total shareholder return against constituents of the FTSE 250 index (excluding investment trusts), return on invested capital (ROIC), annual growth in organic operating profit (OOP), and annual growth in organic operating revenue (OOR). Shares acquired that are not sold to fund tax withholding must normally be retained for two years after vesting.


No consideration was paid for the grant of the awards and no payment is due on their vesting or exercise.
