The Company maintains a long term incentive plan (“LTIP”) built around the fundamental principle of aligning the interests of management with those of our shareholders.
The original LTIP was an Employee Share Option Plan (the “ESOP”) that started in June 2013 and the last option grant was in November 2016. The Company established the ESOP for its employees, Directors and advisers (“Participants”). It was envisaged that it would be used for five years and then re-assessed. As a result of that re-assessment the Board decided that no further options will be granted, though the existing options will remain in place. From September 2018 onwards the carried interest plan will be the Company’s long-term incentive scheme.
In September 2018 the Company introduced a Carried Interest Scheme (“CIS”) to take over from the ESOP. In both cases ESOP and the CIS are administered by the Remuneration.
The ESOP was designed to reward a Participant only if there is an appreciation in value of the Company’s share price.
The ESOP provided that share options granted by the Company under the terms of the Plan should constitute a maximum of one-tenth of the number of the total number of ordinary shares in issue on the date preceding the date of grant. Any issue of ordinary shares by the Company enabled the Remuneration Committee to grant further share options which would be granted with an exercise price set at a 10 percent premium to the subscription price paid by shareholders for the issue of ordinary shares that gave rise to the availability of each tranche of the share options.
Share options can be exercised at any time after the first anniversary and before the tenth anniversary of the grant (as may be determined by the Remuneration Committee in its absolute discretion) of the respective share options.
A total of 2,673,028 share options were granted with the balance of 949,712 unissued options being cancelled upon the introduction of the CIS
The CIS was adopted by the Remuneration Committee and the Board on 17 September 2018.
Under the CIS, beneficiaries will receive a portion of the “excess profits” made from the final realisation of an investment. In computing the excess profits:
The carried interest plan will receive 10% of any resultant excess profit and this will be allocated between the beneficiaries by the Remuneration Committee.
