*including connected persons

The PSP awards made by Macfarlane represent awards over shares worth 100% of the Executive Directors' base salaries, as permitted by the Directors' remuneration policy.  The Company had anticipated making PSP awards at a 50% of base salary level in 2019 (and included a statement in its Directors' remuneration report to this effect) but after consideration and further review by the Remuneration Committee in the period since February 2019, it was determined that awards at 100% of salary should be made in 2019.

The reason for this change of approach was to recognise that these awards are the first PSP awards made by the Company since 2015, and accordingly it was considered to be in shareholders' interests to ensure that our Executive Directors are appropriately aligned to shareholders through slightly larger PSP awards that will directly link potential reward to the future performance of the Company through the PSP.

The PSP awards made to Mr. Gray and Mr. Quirk represent awards over shares worth 50% of base salaries.

The forms required under the EU Market Abuse Regulation follow.
