On 4 June 2021, awards over Shares were granted to the following directors and other PDMRs under the Company's STI and LTIP, in accordance with the remuneration policy approved by shareholders in July 2020 (the "Remuneration Policy"):

Awards under the STI and LTIP were granted for nil consideration and are based on the average of the middle-market quotations of a Share during a period of five dealing days ending with the dealing day before the day of grant, which equates to £3.35 per Share.

 

 

STI awards

 

The Remuneration Committee (the "Committee") considered at length the pay-out under the STI to the executive directors in respect of the financial year ended 31 March 2021 ("FY21"), taking into account financial and overall business performance and the experience of shareholders, employees and clients.

 

The performance delivered against the pre-defined adjusted EBIT target resulted in a pay-out of 100% of a maximum bonus.

 

The Committee reviewed the clinical quality, client experience and employee engagement performance for the Group and considered that the formulaic outcome was an appropriate reflection of the Group's overall performance, and the performance and leadership by the executives of the business through COVID-19. However, the Committee was acutely aware that the dividend was likely to remain suspended as part of the Group's broad response to maintaining its liquidity position, and as such, determined that it would be appropriate for the release of the STI to be conditional on the Company's dividend being reinstated. The payment of the cash proportion of the FY21 STI (50%) was therefore deferred until such time. The remaining 50% of the bonus award was deferred into shares, with the awards subject to the reinstatement of the Company's dividend as well as the usual two-year vesting period and continued employment condition under the Remuneration Policy.

 

Further details on the Committee's decision regarding the FY21 STI are set out in the Remuneration Committee Report included in the Group's Annual Report and Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2021 (the "FY21 Annual Report"), which will be published towards the end of June 2021.

 

LTIP awards

 

On 4 June 2021, the Committee also granted awards under the Company's LTIP to the Group Chief Executive Office and Group Chief Financial Officer with a face value equivalent to 200% and 150% of salary, respectively (the "FY22 LTIP Awards"). The Committee considered it appropriate to grant awards in line with the normal maximum levels under the Remuneration Policy taking into account share price performance since the grant of FY21 LTIP Awards and the level of stretch included in the performance targets. Awards were also granted to the other members of the Group Executive Committee. The Committee will also use its discretion to amend the vesting outcome where it considers that it is not representative of business performance. This includes consideration of any potential 'windfall gains' at the point of vesting.

 

Awards granted under the LTIP are structured as conditional awards, with vesting being subject to the satisfaction of performance conditions over a three-year period. Awards granted to the executive directors will be settled in shares upon vesting, and will be subject to a further two-year holding period.

 

Details of the performance conditions for the FY22 LTIP Awards are set out in the Remuneration Committee Report included in the Group's FY21 Annual Report.
