Guessing outcome from report- can anyone help?

I asked for my report from ESA interview, after receiving advice on here about a long wait for outcome... 

I did as suggested and after receiving it i am still unsure what it may mean, can anyone help?
THE CLIENT WAS FOUND TO MEET THE CRITERIA FOR limited capability for work AND work related activity

what does it mean and what may it financially, mean ESA wise? It also suggests 'medium term' review. I am so confused as i am applying for contributory esa, which i thought i could only get for a year...

Is anyone out there able to suggest whatthis may all mean please?

    This recommends the Support Group for ESA. Medium term could be 2 years before review but for ESA they can reassess you at anytime. Contributions based ESA Support Group is paid for as long as you remain in that group and not for just 365 days.

    Support Group Contributions based is £110.75 per week. If you're on assessment rate at the moment at the decision maker goes with the report and usually they do then you'll be backdated money to the 14th week of your claim. If your claim hasn't yet reached the 14th week then your money will increase from then, providing the decision is Support Group of course. You will have to wait for the decision. Good luck.
