Award of Share Options


Jangada Mines plc, a natural resources company, notes its Remuneration Committee has agreed to the following share option awards over ordinary shares of £0.0004 each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") in order to motivate and retain certain existing Directors, employees and consultants of the Company:

·     7,500,000 share options, in aggregate, to be granted to two of the Directors (Louis Castro and Nick Von Schirnding), and a consultant of the Company (the "Director/Consultant Options"), pursuant to the Jangada plc Share Option Scheme (the "Scheme"); and

·     1,500,000 share options, in aggregate, to be granted to certain mid-level employees of the Company, pursuant to the Scheme.


All options granted have an exercise price of £0.02 per share option, which is an approximate 14 per cent. premium to the closing mid-market price of an Ordinary Share on 6 December 2019, and an expiry date of 31 December 2024.


As part of the award of the Director/Consultant Options, all of the individuals concerned, together with the other Directors of the Company who not receiving new share options, are surrendering their existing holdings of share options, which total, in aggregate, 8,000,000 share options.  These share options were awarded at the time of the Company's IPO on AIM in June 2017, had an exercise price of 5 pence per share option, and an expiry date of 31 December 2019. All other options currently outstanding in the Company, which total, in aggregate, 7,250,000, were on the same terms and are therefore expected to expire unexercised on 31 December 2019.


Following the issue of the abovementioned 9,000,000 share options, and the surrender of the Director/Consultant Options, the share options held by the other members of the Board, and the expected expiry unexercised of all other outstanding options, the Company will have in issue a total of 9,000,000 share options, which equates to approximately 4% of its existing share capital being under option.
