Wednesday 19 April 1995
Frank Barlow, managing director, made a gain of £83,700 by exercising his option over 30,000 Pearson shares granted in 1988 at 342p per share. The options were exercised at a market price of 621p.
Mr Barlow also received remuneration of £492,000 last year, made up of £300,000 in salary, £150,000 in bonus and a further £42,000 in other benefits. Mr Barlow holds further options over 320,000 shares, now exercisable under the Pearson stock plan, for a potential gain of more than £700,000 at last night's close of 555p.
The plan allows executives to exercise options granted after 1988 following the third anniversary of the grant.

He holds exercisable options over nearly 290,000 shares, for a potential profit of £650,000 at last night's close.
Viscount Blakenham, chairman, exercised no stock options. He received a total of £454,000 last year.
