Board Change and Extension of Options


Getech, a provider of data, knowledge and software to the energy industry, is pleased to announce that, further to the announcement of 28 January 2021, following a handover period with Dr Stuart Paton, Richard Bennett has assumed the position of Non-Executive Chairman of Getech.


Dr Paton will continue as a Non-Executive Director of the Company and as Chairman of H2 Green Limited, Getech's recently acquired subsidiary which is focussed on establishing a network of large-scale hydrogen generation, storage and refuelling hubs to support public and commercial transport fleets. Dr Paton will therefore continue to be involved with the Company, ensuring the retention of his experience and skills developed over the 10 years that he has been part of the Board.


Dr Stuart Paton has options over ordinary shares of 0.25p in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") that expire on 27 April 2021.  The Company has agreed to extend the period that Dr Paton has such options by one year. To this effect, the company has granted new options over Ordinary Shares, in place of the existing options, to have effect from 27 April 2021, and that the expiry date for the options over the Ordinary Shares shall be 27 April 2022.  All the remaining terms that applied to the previous options, including the vesting criteria, are contained in the new options.
