Total Fixed Remuneration (TFR) TFR comprises:

Currently, the STI is up to 50% of TFR and the Board in its absolute unfettered discretion, may decide to pay any or all of any STI payment to the Executive in either shares in the Company or as a cash award.

The Executive acknowledges that he has no ongoing entitlement to receive the STI benefit.
Long-Term Incentive (LTI) The Executive remains entitled to the 7 million Share Rights (“Rights”) approved by shareholders at the General Meeting held on 16 November 2017.
