The extent to which a Core Award and a Sustainability Award will vest is based
on the Company's performance over a five year period in total. The whole award
(i.e. both the Core Award and the Sustainability Award) is subject to the
achievement of stretching EPS growth targets over an initial three year
performance period. 50% of shares earned under the Core Award will be released
at this time, with the remaining 50% of the Core Award and the Sustainability
Award being released after a further two year period. Release of the
Sustainability Award is subject to a further condition that the highest EPS
attained in the initial three year performance period is sustained during this
two year deferral period. The vesting of Core Awards and Sustainability Awards
(together the "Awards") is also subject to an additional test based on the
Remuneration Committee's assessment of the quality of earnings. 
The vesting of the Awards may entitle a participant to a benefit equivalent to
the dividends that would have been paid from the award date to the release of
the shares. 
No consideration was paid for the grant of the Awards and no payment is due on
the release of the Awards.
