Polypipe Group plc (the “Company’)

Notification of Transaction by Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities

The Company hereby notifies the following changes in the interests of directors and persons discharging managerial responsibility (“PDMRs”) in Ordinary Shares of £0.001 each in the Company (“Shares”) on 22 June 2020.

Grant of Long Term Incentive Plan awards

The Company confirms that on 22 June 2020, in accordance with its shareholder approved Remuneration Policy, it granted to each of the following Directors/PDMRs an award (structured as a nil cost option) under the Polypipe Group plc 2014 Long Term Incentive Plan (the “LTIP”). In addition, the Company made an award, subject to the same performance conditions as set out below, under the LTIP to 28 members of the Senior Management Team. The awards, which have been granted in respect of the financial year beginning on 1 January 2020, are over the following maximum number of Shares in the Company:

Name/Position

 

Category

Maximum number of Shares

M K Payne/Chief Executive Officer

Director

132,660

P A James/Chief Financial Officer

Director

67,691

G B Sabin/Chief Operating Officer

Director

66,622

M J Gisbourne/Group Strategy & Marketing Director

PDMR

25,489

E G Versluys/Legal Counsel & Company Secretary

PDMR

16,220

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

100% of the maximum potential award is based on a relative Total Shareholder Return (“TSR”) performance condition with a threshold of 25% of the TSR element reached on achieving median and 100% for achieving upper quartile performance relative to the TSR 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).

This target is subject to an over-ride provision enabling the Remuneration Committee of the Company to adjust vesting outcomes based on underlying financial performance and reflects a change to past practice and the disclosure within the 2019 Directors’ Remuneration Report in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, by replacing EPS with TSR for the part of the award previously subject to EPS. The Committee considers this target to be at least as challenging to those set in prior years, given performance will be measured over the normal three year period from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2022 and operate with the same vesting profile as in prior years. 

Full disclosure of the targets will be included in the 2020 Directors’ Remuneration Report.

Subject to the satisfaction of the performance conditions the awards will normally vest on 22 June 2023 and remain exercisable until the tenth anniversary of the grant date.

The notifications below, which have been made in accordance with the requirements of the EU Market Abuse Regulation, provide further detail.
