The vesting of each award is subject to the satisfaction of the following performance conditions:

1.   25% of the maximum potential award is based on a Total Shareholder Return performance condition, with 25% of the TSR element vesting for achieving median and 100% vesting for achieving upper quartile performance relative to the Total Shareholder Return of the companies in a comparator group (consisting of companies in the FTSE 250 Index that are classified as Industrials by the Industry Classification Benchmark);

 

2.   25% of the maximum potential award is based on sustainability targets set to align with the Company’s sustainability strategy. The targets are as follows:

 

a.   Carbon reduction target – 8.33% of the total award is based on emissions intensity that is defined as Scope 1 and Scope 2 tonnes of CO2e per tonne of output with 25% of the carbon reduction target vesting for achieving an emissions intensity of 0.108 and 100% vesting for achieving an emissions intensity of 0.086 as measured in FY 2024;

b.   Use of recycled plastics – 8.33% of the total award is based on the proportion of our products that are manufactured from recycled products, with 25% of the use of recycled plastics target vesting for achieving 54.4% and 100% vesting when reaching 62.0% as measured in FY 2024; and

c.   The 5% Club – this target is based on the Group’s commitment to creating a sustainable business culture with 25% of the 5% Club target vesting when progress towards the 5% Club reaches 4.2% and 100% vesting when 5% is reached as measured in FY 2024.

 

3.   50% of the maximum potential award is based on an Underlying Diluted Earnings per Share (“EPS”) performance condition based on FY 2024 EPS with 25% of the EPS target vesting for achieving an EPS of 31.5p and 100% vesting for an EPS of 37.3p.

The performance conditions are all measured over the three-year period commencing on 1 January 2022, using measures and baselines as described above. The Committee also retains discretion to reduce vesting if it considers that the level of vesting is not consistent with the Company’s overall performance over the three-year period.

Subject to the satisfaction of the performance conditions, the awards will normally vest on 22 April 2025 and remain exercisable until the tenth anniversary of the grant date.
