NOTIFICATION OF TRANSACTIONS OF DIRECTORS, PERSONS DISCHARGING MANAGERIAL RESPONSIBILITY OR CONNECTED PERSONS

 

In accordance with DTR 3.1.4(1), Marshalls plc (the "Company") was notified on 17 March 2011 of the grant of options to acquire ordinary shares of 25 pence each in the Company (in the form of (a) Matching Share Awards and (b) Performance Share Awards) on 17 March 2011 to certain Executive Directors and other Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibility ("PDMR"), under the Marshalls plc 2005 Long Term Incentive Plan (the "LTIP").

 

Executive Directors

 

(a)        Matching Share Awards

 

Under the LTIP, Directors and Senior Executives may defer annual bonus into shares in the Company (Investment Shares) and, in return, are granted an Award of Matching Shares.

 

In order for a Matching Share Award to vest, participants must leave their Investment Shares in the Trust and remain in employment for a period of three years from the date of grant of the Matching Share Award.  The actual number of shares that a participant may receive on the vesting of the Matching Share Award will depend on the extent to which a corporate performance target (which relates to growth in the Company's earnings per share) is satisfied over the three year vesting period. Matching Awards will not vest if the performance target is not achieved. No consideration will be payable on the vesting of a Matching Share Award.

 

Each of the Directors has agreed to defer all of his 2010 bonus entitlement into Investment Shares. Details of the Investment Shares acquired and the Matching Share Awards under the LTIP are as follows:

(b)        Performance Share Awards

 

In addition the Directors have been granted Performance Share Awards under the LTIP.  Performance Share Awards will not vest unless stretching performance conditions measured over a three year period are satisfied, so are contingent on achievement of these targets and would not be transferred to the participant if these targets were not met.  No consideration was paid for the grant of the Performance Share Award.

 

The Performance Share Awards granted to Directors under the LTIP on 17 March 2011 were as follows:
