Issue of Performance Rights under Board approved LTI Scheme

In accordance with NZX Listing Rule 7.12.1, Gentrack Group Limited (NZX/ASX: GTK) (Gentrack) advises that it has issued 152,400 Performance Rights (PRs) for no consideration as an initial grant under the LTI Scheme. The performance rights were issued with an effective issue date of 2 May 2016.

Each PR issued for the first award under the LTI Scheme gives the right to receive one ordinary share in Gentrack, subject to the holder remaining employed by Gentrack until the end of the vesting period and achievement of the Performance Hurdle. For this initial award of PRs, because the grant relates to performance measured from 1 October 2015, the number of PRs has been calculated based on the 10 day Volume Weighted Average Price of Gentrack shares on the NZX, following the announcement of financial results for the year to 30 September 2015.

The number of PRs that will vest and be exercisable depends on achievement of the Performance Hurdle.

The Performance Hurdle for the first award is that 50% of the PRs will vest, if the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) in Earnings Per Share (EPS) of Gentrack over the 3 financial years of the measurement period is 7%. The number of PRs that vest increases linearly to 100% if EPS CAGR is 12%. The Performance Hurdle will be measured over the three years ending on 30 September 2018.

The Performance Hurdle for vesting of PRs granted in the future will be set by the Board at the time they are granted.
