On 3 July 2017, Kindred Group granted new performance share awards to senior managers and key employees. These grants would vest subject to the Group achieving business performance targets over the three financial years 2017 – 2019 and continued employment.
On 6 July 2020 the 2017 PSP grant vested on a partial basis as the agreed targets for the business performance conditions set for the period covering the three financial years 2017 – 2019 were not fully met.
The results for the 2017 PSP are summarised below:
|Performance Conditions||Achievement vs Target Over 2017-19||PSP Result|
|Free cash flow per share||101.7%||100.0% (capped)|
Of the 423,197 share awards initially granted under the scheme on 3 July 2017, the total number of share awards which vested on 6 July 2020 was 255,163 (60.3 percent of initial grant), using 255,163 SDRs from the Kindred Group’s share buy-back programme.
