Up to a further 18 eligible employees of the Company have been granted LTIP Awards over a maximum total of 665,000 Ordinary Shares.


Vesting of the LTIP Awards is subject to a performance condition measuring the Company's earnings per share ("EPS") growth over the period of three years commencing 1 January 2014. If, over the three year period from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2016, the average annualised EPS is less than €0.44, no LTIP Awards will vest. 50% of the LTIP Awards will vest for average annualised EPS of €0.44, rising on a straight-line basis to full vesting for average annualised EPS of €0.51 or higher.  The LTIP Awards will ordinarily vest three years from the date of grant and the right to subscribe for vested LTIP Award shares may be exercised within six months of the vesting date.


The amounts shown above represent the maximum possible number of Ordinary Shares that may be granted to the eligible employees under the LTIP Awards. The price used to calculate the maximum number of Ordinary Shares under the LTIP Awards was €7.25, being the closing price of Cpl shares on the ESM market of the Irish Stock Exchange on 26th February 2014, the last dealing day prior to the grant of the LTIP Awards.
