Long-Term Incentive Plan (the "LTIP")
On 25 June 2020, Arrow Global Group PLC granted nil-cost options over its ordinary shares under the Arrow Global Group LTIP to directors and persons discharging managerial responsibility.
The Company's Remuneration Committee determined that, given the external environment, the underlying targets for the awards should not be set at that time, and the Company would seek to publish the proposed targets for the awards on the Company's website no later than the end of November 2020.
The Remuneration Committee has now determined the performance measures for the nil-cost options, and they are:
1. Return on Equity (ROE) in the final year of the plan (2022), with threshold vesting being achieved at 20% and maximum vesting at 30%.
2. Relative Total Shareholder Return (TSR), measured for a period of three years from the date of grant (25 June 2020 to 24 June 2023) against the FTSE 350 benchmark group, where threshold vesting is achieved by being at median and maximum vesting is achieved by being at or above the upper quartile level.
3. Underlying Free Cash Flow (FCF), being cash from operations after interest and taxes, but before exceptional business disposals and excluding adjusted items and subject to such other adjustments as the Remuneration Committee determines. Assessed against a three-year cumulative target with threshold vesting being achieved at £500m and maximum vesting at £600m.
Each of the measures is equally weighted and accounts for one third of the grants made, with straight line vesting in between threshold and maximum levels of performance.
Under the terms of the LTIP award, the Remuneration Committee has full discretion to ensure that the final outturn of the LTIP reflects all relevant factors, including consideration of any potential for windfall gains.
