·      25% of the TSR-related part of the award will vest if the Company's TSR is ranked at the median of the bespoke group of companies, increasing on a straight-line basis to 100% vesting if the Company's TSR is ranked at the upper quartile of the comparator group.


Performance against each target is assessed independently.  The award will normally vest on the later of the third anniversary of grant and the determination of the performance conditions. Any awards made will be subject to malus and clawback provisions.
