De La Rue plc

Director/PDMR Shareholding

Notification of transactions by persons discharging managerial responsibilities and persons closely associated with them

1 July 2021

De La Rue plc (the "Company") announces that on 30 June 2021 it granted awards under the De La Rue Performance Share Plan 2020 (the "PSP") to Clive Vacher, Rob Harding and Ruth Euling, each of whom is an Executive Director and a Person Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ("PDMR") of the Company. The granting of the awards creates a change in the interests of each of them in the ordinary shares of 44(152) /(175) p of the Company ("Shares"). The awards, which were structured as a nil-cost option (each an "Option"), were granted under the rules of the PSP as follows:

 
 Name of Director/PDMR        Role        Number of Shares subject 
                                                     to the Option 
 Clive Vacher                  CEO                         239,361 
                         --------------  ------------------------- 
 Rob Harding                   CFO                         146,276 
                         --------------  ------------------------- 
 Ruth Euling              MD, Currency                     135,586 
                         --------------  ------------------------- 
 

The Options were granted on 30 June 2021 (the "Award Date"). The number of Shares contained in each Option was calculated by reference to a price of 191.76 pence, being the average of the closing middle market quotations for the Company's Shares for the five consecutive dealing days ending on 29 June 2021.

Each Option was granted such that vesting is subject to two equally-weighted performance conditions, which will be assessed independently, as outlined below:

 
 Performance metric     Proportion   Below Threshold    Threshold       Maximum 
 Outcome                               0% vesting      25% vesting    100% vesting 
                       -----------  ----------------  ------------  --------------- 
 Average annual 
  cumulative EPS 
  Growth over the 
  three financial 
  years 21/22 to 
  23/24                    50%            <8.5%           8.5%           16.7% 
                       -----------  ----------------  ------------  --------------- 
 TSR vs FTSE 250 
  constituents, over 
  3 years ending 
  31 May 2024              50%        Below Median       Median      Upper Quartile 
                       -----------  ----------------  ------------  --------------- 
 

Performance between the Threshold and Maximum levels will result in a pro-rata increase in the number of Shares vesting, on a straight-line basis. Performance beyond the Maximum level will not result in any additional vesting.

The performance conditions are subject to an underpin , which provides the Remuneration Committee with discretion to adjust or over-ride the formulaic outcome and determine the number of Shares in respect of which the Option will v est, taking into account such factors it may in its discretion determine, potentially including the underlying performance of the Group and the Participant's individual performance .

To the extent that an Option vests, it is subject to a further holding period of two years, during which time it will not be capable of exercise. This means that, i n line with the UK Corporate Governance Code, each Option will be subject to an aggregate vesting and holding period of five years.

The number of Shares shown in the first table above represents the maximum that may be acquired if all performance conditions are achieved in full. The Company may also transfer additional Shares to reflect the value of dividends that would have been paid on the Shares in respect of which the Option vests over the period between the Award Date and the end of the post-vesting holding period.
