Performance Share Plan (PSP)

On 2 August 2022, the Board of Directors of Detection Technology Plc decided on the establishment of a share-based long-term incentive scheme for the company’s management group and other key employees. It comprises a Performance Share Plan (PSP).

The objectives of the Performance Share Plan are to align the interests of Detection Technology’s management and key employees with those of the company’s shareholders and, thus, to promote shareholder value creation in the long term. In addition, the aim is to commit the management and key employees to achieving Detection Technology’s strategic targets.

The Performance Share Plan consists of annually commencing individual performance share plans. The commencement of each new plan is subject to a separate decision of the company’s Board of Directors. Each plan comprises a performance period followed by the payment of the potential share rewards in listed shares of Detection Technology. The payment of the rewards is conditional on the achievement of the performance targets set by the Board of Directors for the respective plan.

The performance period of the first plan, PSP 2022-2024, covers the period from the beginning of August 2022 until the end of the year 2024. The share rewards potentially payable thereunder will be paid during the first half of the year 2025. The possible subsequent plans will include a three-year performance period as in each case separately decided by the Board of Directors.

The performance measure based on which the potential share rewards under the PSP 2022-2024 program will be paid is the total shareholder return of Detection Technology’s share (absolute TSR). Eligible for participation in the PSP 2022-2024 program are approximately 60 individuals, including the members of Detection Technology’s management group. If all the performance targets set for the PSP 2022-2024 program, are fully achieved, the aggregate maximum number of shares to be paid as a reward based on this plan is approximately 270,000 shares (referring to gross earnings before the withholding of the applicable payroll tax).
