Employee Stock Option/ Share Scheme::Stock Option Plan for the Company's Philippine Subsidiary

10/04/2021 | 11:00pm


(Incorporated in the British Virgin Islands)



Pursuant to Rule 843(4) of the Singapore Exchange ("SGX"), the Board of Directors of Del Monte Pacific Limited (the "Company") wishes to disclose the principal terms of the 2021 Long Term Incentive Plan (the "Plan") established and to be implemented by the Company's subsidiary, Del Monte Philippines, Inc. ("DMPI") for its employees. The Plan was approved by the DMPI Board as of 4 October 2021.


Effective as of 4 October 2021, DMPI had established the Plan for the purpose of providing designated employees of DMPI with the opportunity to receive grants of nonqualified stock options ("Options"). The Remuneration and Stock Option Committee (the "Committee") and the Board of Directors of DMPI approved the Plan. The following sets forth a summary of the principal terms of the Plan in accordance with Rule 843(4) of the SGX.


Participation in the Plan is limited to employees of DMPI (including any officer who is also an employee), who will be qualified and approved by the Committee from the list of potential participants identified by Management as critical to the delivery of DMPI's Long Range Plan.


The Plan is administered and interpreted by the Committee. The Committee has full power and express discretionary authority to administer and interpret the Plan, to make factual determinations and to adopt or amend such rules, regulations, agreements and instruments for implementing the Plan, in its sole discretion. The Committee may amend or terminate the Plan at any time; provided, however, that the Committee cannot amend the Plan without approval of the shareholders of DMPI if such approval is required in order to comply with applicable laws or stock exchange requirements.


Principal Terms of the Plan

Grants under the Plan consist of Options and are subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan and those terms and conditions as are specified to the participant in the applicable grant agreement. Subject to certain adjustments as described below, the maximum aggregate number of DMPI shares that may be issued pursuant to Options ("Shares") under the Plan is up to 2% of DMPI's total issued and outstanding common shares. None of the limits set forth in Rule 845 of the SGX shall be exceeded.

The Committee determines the number of Shares pursuant to each Option and the recipient of each grant. Each Option to be granted under the Plan has a term of five years; 50% shall become vested on the third year from the grant date while the remaining 50% shall become vested on the fifth year from the grant date. Each Option will vest in accordance with such vesting schedule if the recipient continues to be employed by DMPI from the date of grant until the applicable vesting date. Any unvested Option shall be forfeited upon the participant's separation of service and may be made available for re-issuance to another participant. However, vested Options will remain exercisable by a separated participant for 90 days from separation from DMPI or in case of death or disability, vested Options shall be exercisable by the participant's legal heirs or legal representatives within one year from such occurrence.

Recipients of grants under the Plan are not required to pay any amount upon application or acceptance of the grant. The exercise price of Options granted under the Plan shall not be less than the fair market value of a Share on the date of grant. Once an Option is exercised, the voting, dividend, transfer and other rights attached to the Shares are the same as with other shares of DMPI common stock, provided the Shares remain outstanding.

Upon vesting of an Option, a recipient of a grant will have the right to require DMPI to repurchase all or any portion of the vested portion of an Option at the applicable fair market value of a Share, less the exercise price. To the extent any portion of an Option has been exercised and DMPI repurchases Shares distributed on exercise, DMPI will purchase the Shares at the applicable fair market value of the Shares.

If there is any change in the number, kind or value of Shares outstanding (i) by reason of a stock dividend, spinoff, recapitalization, stock split, or combination or exchange of shares, (ii) by reason of a merger, reorganization or consolidation, (iii) by reason of a reclassification or change in par value, or (iv) by reason of any other extraordinary or unusual event affecting the outstanding Shares as a class without DMPI's receipt of consideration, or if the value of Shares is substantially reduced as a result of a spinoff or DMPI's payment of an extraordinary dividend or distribution, the maximum number of Shares available for issuance or transfer under the Plan, the maximum number of Shares for which any individual may receive grants in any year, the kind and number of Shares covered by outstanding grants, the kind and number of shares issued or transferred and to be issued or transferred under the Plan, and the price per share or the applicable market value of such grants will be equitably adjusted by the Committee, in such manner as the Committee deems appropriate, to reflect any increase or decrease in the number of, or change in the kind or value of, the issued or transferred Shares to preclude, to the extent practicable, the enlargement or dilution of rights and benefits under the Plan and such outstanding grants; provided, however, that any fractional shares resulting from such adjustment will be eliminated.


DMPI's Board may amend or terminate the Plan at any time; provided, however, that the Board shall not amend the Plan without the approval of DMPI's shareholders if such approval is required in order to comply with the Code or applicable laws, or to comply with applicable stock exchange requirements. Specifically, certain provisions of the Plan relating to matters contained in the SGX Listing Rules cannot be amended to the advantage of the participants without prior approval of the Company's shareholders.

DMPI shall provide assistance to the Company in making disclosures with respect to the Plan pursuant to Section 852 of the SGX Listing Rules.
