Notification of Transactions by Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ("PDMRs")

 

Founders Incentive Plan Awards

 

Longboat Energy, established by the former management team of Faroe Petroleum plc to build a significant North Sea-focused E&P business announces the conditional awards made under the Company's Founders Incentive Plan (the "Plan") to the PDMRs of the Company as listed below. 

 

The Plan

 

The Company has put in place an incentive arrangement for the founders of the Company designed to incentivise participants to deliver exceptional returns for shareholders over a five-year period (the "Performance Period").  Under the Plan, participants are eligible to receive 15% of the growth in returns of the Company from the date of Admission should a hurdle of doubling of the total shareholder return be met (the "Initial Award").

 

For further capital raises that occur during the Performance Period, additional tranches under the Plan will be created with their own threshold values which will be calculated with reference to the growth rates required for the Initial Award (listed below) as well as the time remaining to each of the measurement dates. Additional tranches will follow the same timetable as the initial award (i.e. performance will be measured on the same dates).

 

Not more than 10% of the Company's issued ordinary share capital may be issued under the Plan.

 

Conditional Awards

 

The following conditional awards have been made to the Company's founders under the Plan (the "Awards") which are expressed as a percentage of the total maximum potential award, being 10% of the Company's issued share capital. Subject to the performance conditions set out below being met, the Awards will be converted into nil cost options over ordinary shares of 10p each in the share capital Company ("Nil Cost options") on each measurement date as set out below.

Performance Conditions

 

The share price at the date of Admission of the Company to AIM on 28 November 2019 (the "Commencement Date") of £1.00 (the "Initial Price") will be used to measure the level of return at each measurement date. Testing of the level of return achieved will be at the end of years three, four and five from the Commencement Date (the "Measurement Dates"). At each Measurement Date the value of the award will be driven by the return generated above the Initial Price (the "Threshold Value"):

If at Measurement Dates three and/or four the Threshold Value has been reached then Nil Cost Options will be awarded of which half will vest and can be exercised immediately. The remaining half will be deferred until the Measurement Date at year five. All Nil Cost Options awarded in respect of the Measurement Date at year five will vest immediately.
