These awards were calculated on the basis of 100% of base salary for the year ending 31 January 2015, using the share price at the close of business on 2 July 2014 of 108.5p.


The awards are subject to a performance condition that requires the Company's compounded annual growth in Earnings Per Share over the three financial years to 31 January 2017 to be at least 15% to vest in full with 20% of the award vesting if such growth is at least 7.5%.  Vesting between these levels will be on a straight-line basis with no part of the award vesting below 7.5%. Upon vesting, the shares must then be held for a minimum period of two years.
