Scotgold Resources Limited ("Scotgold" or "the Company")

Grant of Warrants to Executive Management

 

The Company announces that on 1 May 2018 the directors, other than Mr Richard Gray, approved the grant,  subject to shareholder approval, of a total of 1,240,000 warrants over Ordinary Shares in the Company (the "Warrants")  to Richard Gray CEO of Scotgold and Mr David Swan, the Chief Financial Officer of the Company.

The proposed Warrants are an incentive for executive management to meet corporate milestones and will vest on the later of one year from date of grant or the commencement of gold production from the Cononish mine. The Warrants will expire 10 years after the date of grant, being 1 May 2028. Each Warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one Ordinary Share at 30 pence per share.  

The Warrants will not be listed.

The 38,000,000 warrants previously granted to Richard Gray, as announced on 6 July 2015, were also subject to shareholder approval. Such approval has not been sought from shareholders and, accordingly, these warrants have been cancelled with immediate effect.

As Richard Gray is a director of the Company, the grant of the Warrants to Richard Gray constitutes a related party transaction pursuant to AIM Rule 13. The directors of the Company, other than Richard Gray, consider, having consulted with the Company's Nominated Adviser, SP Angel Corporate Finance LLP, that the terms of the related party transaction are fair and reasonable insofar as the shareholders of the Company are concerned.
