DNZ adopts a new Long Term Incentive Plan 13/07/2015

The Board of DNZ Property Fund Limited (DNZ) recently adopted a new long term incentive plan to incentivise certain employees of the Company (as selected by the Board) and align the interests of those employees with those of the Company’s shareholders


The plan is similar to DNZ’s previous long term incentive plan and provides for the selected employees to be granted rights to be issued shares for nil consideration if certain performance hurdles (based around total shareholder returns and distributable profit per share) are met.

The plan contains three schemes, which provide for the issue (if all hurdles are met in full) of up to 97,298 shares for the period 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2016, 270,421 shares for the period 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2017 and 294,493 shares for the period 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2018.
