Marks & Spencer Grp (MKS)

Marks & Spencer Grp

Director/PDMR Shareholding
RNS Number : 1567S
Marks & Spencer Group PLC
06 July 2020
 

Director/PDMR Shareholding

Marks and Spencer Group plc (the 'Company') announces that on 6 July 2020 it was notified of the following transactions in the Company's Ordinary 25p shares undertaken by director / persons discharging managerial responsibility ('PDMRs'):

1.  Performance Share Plan Award 2020/21

As reported within the Company's Annual Report on 26 May 2020, the Performance Share Plan ('PSP') continues to be Marks & Spencer's primary long-term incentive plan for executives. As a result, awards under the PSP have been made to the seven PDMRs of the Company.

These awards were granted as conditional shares, the vesting of which is subject to the satisfaction of certain performance conditions, as well as the continued employment of the participant. Specifically, the vesting of the award will depend on relative Total Shareholder Return (TSR), the Company's Earnings Per Share (EPS), Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) and Strategic Measures over a fixed three-year performance period starting on the first day of the financial year in which the award was granted.

As disclosed in the Company's 2020 Annual report, after careful consideration, and as a direct impact of the current unprecedented trading and financial environment, target setting for the 2020 awards has been delayed until appropriately stretching but realistic goals can be set. Targets for these awards will be set and disclosed no later than 31 December 2020.

 

On vesting, the award is subject to an additional, mandatory two-year holding period, making a total period of five years post grant. The value of dividends accrued, in the form of dividend equivalents, will be paid at the end of the period (third anniversary) based on the number of vested shares. No consideration was paid for the grant of the award and no price is payable on the exercise of the award. For the purposes of this award, the five-day average share price immediately preceding the date of grant of £1.00 was used.

2.  Restricted Share Plan

As announced, on 11 February 2020 and in line with the Company's recruitment policy Eoin Tonge, Chief Financial Officer, has been granted an award of conditional shares, this award compensates, on a fair value basis, the share awards forfeited on resigning from his role with Greencore Group PLC. The fair value has been calculated to take account of the original performance period and the estimated satisfaction of the performance conditions of the original awards. The vesting timeline for the first tranche of this award is in-line with the time horizons of the original awards, for the remaining tranches the original time horizon has been extended by six months.  For the purposes of this award, the five-day average share price immediately preceding the date of grant of £1.00 was used.

The Company requires Eoin Tonge to have an equity position equivalent to 200% of salary within 5 years of appointment.

Stuart Machin, Managing Director, Food, was granted a conditional share award of 100,000 shares under the Marks and Spencer Group Restricted Share Plan.

This award will vest in two tranches over three years following the date of grant, subject to Stuart's continued employment with the Company.

The value of dividends accrued, in the form of dividend equivalents, will be paid on the vesting date based on the number of vested shares.
