Sample article from our Tissue & Hygiene

February 9, 2024 (press release) –

Accrol (AIM: ACRL), the UK's leading independent tissue converter, announces the second grant of options to executive Directors and certain senior management under the Long-Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP") announced on 5 March 2021.

 

The LTIP was established to incentivise management to deliver long-term value creation for shareholders and ensure alignment with shareholder interests.

 

Background

 

The LTIP is based on market standard annual awards and is limited to a maximum of 5% of the issued share capital of the Company over its five-year life assuming all existing LTIP options are exercised.

 

All awards made under the LTIP will be made by the granting of nil-cost options established in accordance with the rules of the LTIP and vesting is subject to adjusted EBITDA targets in line with the LTIP rules.

 

The Remuneration Committee has discretion to amend these terms to take account of, for example, corporate activities such as acquisitions to ensure that the performance targets remain appropriate. Malus and clawback provisions are also in place to reduce or recover any awards for criteria such as any material misstatement of the financial statements, a serious breach of the Company's code of ethics or a serious health and safety issue.

 

Award size, performance conditions and dilution

 

On 5 February 2024, options over 2,594,718 shares in aggregate (the "2024 Awards") were granted under the LTIP, including those set out below which were granted to directors and other persons discharging managerial responsibility:

Gareth Jenkins

Chief Executive Officer

1,055,065

Chris Welsh

Chief Financial Officer

401,700

Graham Cox

The 2024 Awards are subject to the below Adjusted EBITDA targets measured over the performance period ending on 30 April 2026 and are summarised below:

 

Adjusted EBITDA for FY2026

Percentage of the 2024 Award that may vest

Less than £21.0m

0%

Between £21.0m and £23.0m

Between 25% and 100%

£23.0m or greater

100%

 

If the maximum targets are met in FY26, the total dilutive impact of the 2024 Awards will be 0.8%. The maximum aggregate dilutive effect of awards then issued under the LTIP will stand at 4.94% of the fully diluted share capital of the Company assuming all existing LTIP options are exercised.
