 Upper quintile                        100% 
 

-- before any of the awards vest, the Committee must have regard to the performance of the Company in the light of underlying economic and other circumstances, including EPS performance of the Company and of other UK retailers over the period;

   --     to the extent that the performance condition is not met, the award will lapse completely; 
   --     to the extent that awards vest, dividend equivalents will be accrued; and 

-- any vesting of these awards granted to executive directors (including dividend equivalents) will be settled in shares and, after payment of tax, the net shares received should be retained for a period of two further years.

LTIP awards are made twice a year. The maximum number of shares shown above is 100% of each director's base salary at the date of each grant, divided by NEXT's average share price over the three months prior to the start of the performance period.
