Hill & Smith 2014 Long-term Incentive Plan Awards Vesting

Hill & Smith announces that the Remuneration Committee (the 'Committee') has approved the vesting of 100% of the awards that were made on 20 May 2014 to the below Directors and persons discharging managerial responsibilities in accordance with the rules of the Hill & Smith Holdings PLC 2014 Long-term Incentive Plan (the 'LTIP').

For awards made under the LTIP the Committee, in making such option awards, and using its discretion, specified that subject to the rules of the LTIP the Company would procure the transfer to Mr D W Muir and Mr M Pegler such additional number of award shares as could have been acquired by the reinvestment of dividends paid on the original award shares. Such additional award shares vest in the same proportion as the original award shares. The maximum number of shares to be awarded in this way is to be determined on the basis that each such dividend was reinvested on the date of payment of that dividend at a price per share equal to the market value of a share on that day.

The number of shares vested is net of the tax and national insurance liability payable by the individual. The individual forfeited an equivalent number of shares in order for the company to meet this liability.
