LLOYDS BANKING GROUP - SUMMARY REMUNERATION ANNOUNCEMENT

The purpose of this announcement is to provide transparency in a single remuneration disclosure. It contains details of upcoming remuneration disclosures for the Group, including salary, Group Performance Share, Group Ownership Share awards and Fixed Share Awards for the Person Discharging Managerial Responsibilities (PDMR).

 

2017 REMUNERATION OUTCOMES

The remuneration outcomes set out in this announcement reflect the Group's preference for a high proportion of awards to be delivered in shares, deferred where appropriate and with the potential for performance adjustment, and where applicable clawback, to be applied, aligning the interests of senior executives with those of shareholders and customers.

 

Where awards have not yet been made, estimates have been provided. A statement will be provided to the market following the actual awards in the normal way.

 

Further information will be available in the 2017 Annual Report and Accounts.  

 

Lord Blackwell, the Group's Chairman said:

Our approach to reward aims to provide a clear link between remuneration and delivery of the Group's key strategic objectives, namely, becoming the best bank for customers whilst delivering long-term, superior and sustainable returns to shareholders. We believe in offering fair reward where colleagues are rewarded for performance aligned to the long-term sustainable success of the business, our commitment to rebuilding trust and changing the culture of the Group.

 

2017 GROUP PERFORMANCE SHARE OUTCOME

As announced in the 2016 Directors' Remuneration Report, the Group's Annual Bonus plan is  known as the Group Performance Share plan from 2017. The Group Performance Share outcome is based on a percentage of the Group's underlying profit, adjusted by a strategic modifier based on the Group Balanced Scorecard metrics and a collective adjustment to reflect risk matters and other factors.

 

2017 saw the Group's successful return to full private ownership, repaying the taxpayer's original investment of £20.3 billion, plus an additional £900 million. The Group has delivered a strong financial performance in a very challenging operating environment that has been characterised by low interest rates for a longer period than had perhaps been expected, as well as heightened market volatility and uncertainty following the EU Referendum. Despite this uncertainty, underlying profit increased to £8,493 million in 2017, exceeding budget by 8.2 per cent. Capital generation of 245bps has been well ahead of market expectation.

 

The ordinary dividend increased to 3.05 pence per share (2016: 2.55 pence plus special dividend 0.5 pence per share), in line with the Group's progressive and sustainable dividend policy, with a share buyback of up to £1 billion.

The Committee determined that the share of underlying profit should be 5.1 per cent. In reaching this decision, the Committee took into account the Group's actual performance against budget where outperformance was 8.2 per cent and distributions to shareholders which have increased by 46.9 per cent. This was adjusted to reflect strong performance against stretching Group strategic objectives and issues impacting negatively on profitability and shareholder returns, customers, conduct and the Group's reputation. The collective performance adjustment for 2017 was £109.6 million (approximately 21 per cent).  The overall Group Performance Share outcome determined by the Committee was £414.7 million, approximately 5.5 per cent higher than the equivalent bonus outcome for 2016 (£392.9 million). 

 

The individual awards for Executive Directors are determined in the same way as for colleagues across the Group by reference to Group and individual performance. Information regarding the performance of the Executive Directors in 2017 will be available in the Annual Report and Accounts. Group Performance Share awards are deferred into ordinary shares of the Group ('Shares') under the Lloyds Banking Group Deferred Group Performance Share Plan ('Deferred Group Performance Share Award'). Deferred Group Performance Share awards made to Executive Directors and members of the Group Executive Committee are subject to clawback for at least seven years from the date of grant. This period may be extended to ten years where there is an ongoing internal or regulatory investigation.

 

2017 Group Performance Share Awards

In line with requirements of the PRA Rulebook and FCA Remuneration Code (SYSC 19D), a maximum of 40 per cent of any variable remuneration awarded to Executive Directors and other members of the Group Executive Committee can be paid in 2018. The remaining 60 per cent must be deferred.

 

For the 2017 Group Performance Share, £2,000 is paid in cash in March 2018, with the balance of the upfront 40 per cent delivered in Shares, 50 per cent delivered immediately in June 2018 and the remainder subject to holding until March 2019. The remaining 60 per cent is deferred into Shares with 40 per cent vesting in 2019 and 20 per cent in 2020.

2018 Executive Director Base Salaries

Executive salary levels are set in the context of all colleague salaries, for which a budget of 2.7 per cent was agreed, including funding to ensure a minimum salary award of £600 for eligible colleagues.

 

Salary increases for António Horta-Osório and George Culmer are set below the budget for the wider colleague population, at 2 per cent. Juan Colombás took on a new role of Chief Operating Officer (COO) in September 2017 and accordingly it is proposed he receive a salary increase of 3.4 per cent to reflect the fact that the COO role is larger than his previous role as the Chief Risk Officer.

 

Salaries will therefore be as follows, with the effective dates shown below:

 

António Horta-Osório

£1,244,400 

(1 January 2018) 

George Culmer

£779,351

Fixed Share Awards in 2018

After the settlement of income tax liabilities and national insurance contributions, Shares are due to be acquired on behalf of the PDMRs as listed in the table below in respect of each quarter.

 

The Shares will be held on behalf of the PDMRs and will be released over five years, with 20 per cent being released each year on the anniversary of the award.

Release of Long-Term Incentive Awards made in March 2015

The Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) awards made in 2015 are vesting at 66.3 per cent, as detailed in the table below.

 

This reflects the Group's strong performance since 2015, balanced against uncertainty in the economic and political environment.  In particular, this has impacted negatively on absolute share price performance, resulting in no vesting for the Total Shareholder Return component.

The FCA changed the approach to complaint classification and reporting from 30 June 2016. The Committee determined that the original target should be translated on a like-for-like basis into the new reporting requirement. The Committee was satisfied that the revised targets, set on a mechanical basis, were no less stretching.

 

 

 

The Group expects that, after the settlement of income tax and national insurance contributions, the PDMRs listed in the table below will receive in March the number of Shares (including dividend equivalents) as set out by their name, following the partial vesting of long-term awards made in March 2015.  Executive Directors and Material Risk Takers at the time of the award in 2015 are required to retain any shares vesting for a further two years.

Based on a share price of 66.65 pence. The actual number of shares awarded will be determined by the average of the closing share price of the five trading days prior to the date of award. As regulations prohibit the payment of dividend equivalents on awards in 2018 and subsequent years, the number of shares subject to the award has been determined by applying a discount factor to the share price on grant, as previously disclosed. The Committee approved an adjustment of 25 per cent for colleagues who are senior managers, including the Executive Directors.

2

Vesting determined in 2021 subject to the satisfaction of stretching performance targets over the performance period ending 31 December 2020.

3

The values for the Group Ownership Share awards are shown at an expected value of 50 per cent of maximum value and before deduction of income tax and NIC. The actual vesting value will depend on the achievement of performance conditions and the share price at the date of vesting. These awards are subject to malus and clawback for at least seven years from the date of award.

 

 

 

Shareholding Requirement

From 1 January 2017 the shareholding requirement for  Executive Directors has been focused on base salary only (previously: base salary plus fixed share award) to provide greater transparency in the measurement of the shareholding requirements. This resulted in an increase in the percentage required as a multiple of salary. The new requirements are 350 per cent of base salary for the GCE and 250 per cent of base salary for the other Executive Directors. The shareholding requirement for members of the Executive Committee is 100 per cent of the aggregate of base salary and fixed share award. Newly appointed individuals have three years from appointment to achieve the shareholding requirement.

 

The following table sets out the total shareholding for each of the PDMRs as at 31 December 2017.

The average share price between 1 October 2017 and 31 December 2017 (66.75 pence) has been used to indicate the value. The shares were awarded in 2015 based on a share price of 79.93 pence. LTIP and dividend equivalent figures for 2016 have been adjusted to reflect the share price on the date of vesting (67.51 pence) instead of the average price (58.30 pence) reported in the 2016 report.

Other remuneration payments comprise income from all employee share plans, which arises through employer matching or discounting of employee purchases.
