FOR RELEASE ON



10 May 2018



 


Re-issuing to correct the maximum number of conditionally awarded Shares outstanding for David Baynes.


 


IP Group plc - LTIP


 


IP Group plc (LSE: IPO) ("IP Group" or "the Group" or "the Company"), the developer of intellectual property-based businesses, announces that it has made conditional awards of 5,025,302 ordinary shares of two pence each ("Shares") to its executive directors, other persons discharging managerial responsibilities ("PDMRs") and certain other employees under its Long Term Incentive Plan (the "LTIP").


 


The performance measures attaching to the 2018 awards are based on the achievement of targets linked to growth in the Company's "hard" net assets ("Hard NAV") and total shareholder return ("TSR") as described in the Directors' Remuneration Report of the Annual Report and Accounts. The starting point for the TSR target is 134.5p, being the one-month average closing price up to the date of grant. The starting point for the Hard NAV performance measure is the Group's audited Hard NAV at 31 December 2017 of £1,326.2m. The number of Shares conditionally awarded was calculated using the closing price on 9 May 2018 of 139.2p.


 


Assuming satisfaction of the conditions in full, the awards will ordinarily vest on or after 31 March 2021 and the Shares will be issued as soon as practicable after these dates. Any such Shares would be subject to a minimum two-year post-vesting holding period.


 


Conditional awards over 2,539,512 Shares have been made to the executive directors and other PDMRs, as set out in the table below, with awards over a further 2,485,790 to other of the Group's employees.
