Gulf Keystone Petroleum Limited (LSE: GKP)

("Gulf Keystone" or "the Company")

 

Long Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP") Award 

 

LTIP

 

Gulf Keystone Petroleum Limited announces that pursuant to the 2014 Gulf Keystone Long Term Incentive Plan, on 1 April 2021 (the "Award Date") awards over common shares ("2021 Awards") were granted to employees and the persons discharging managerial responsibilities ("PDMRs") listed below.

 

The LTIP was approved by Gulf Keystone Petroleum Limited's shareholders at the Company's Annual General Meeting held on 17 July 2014; this is the fourth award to be made under the LTIP and is in accordance with the agreed annual issue cycle which follows release of the Company's full year results.  The awards are made to eligible employees of the wider workforce, including to employees in Kurdistan.

 

The quantum of 2021 Awards was determined based on a price of 178.6p being the closing mid-market price of the Company on 31 March 2021.  The vesting date for the 2021 Awards is 1 April 2024, being the third anniversary from the Award Date.  The 2021 Awards are in the form of nil cost options and vesting of them will be in accordance with performance conditions.  No consideration is payable for the grant of an Award. 

 

Performance Conditions

 

Vesting of the 2021 Awards is subject to both absolute and relative total shareholder return ("TSR") targets being met, each measure having a 50% weighting.  TSR will be measured over the period of three years from the Award Date . In accordance with recent governance guidelines, the Remuneration Committee has the discretion to review vesting outcomes to ensure a fair reflection of performance.

In addition to the above, 2021 Awards over a total of 1,244,147 shares in aggregate have also been granted under the LTIP to eligible employees who are not PDMRs.

 

 

Satisfaction of Exercised Awards

 

In anticipation of the potential exercise of existing vested but unexercised awards under the SRP and LTIP (2018 award), the Company has resolved to a) transfer the remaining 1,000,000 treasury shares as previously detailed to the Company's Employee Benefit Trust ("EBT") and b) issue 500,000 new common shares to be held by the trustee of the EBT (the "New Common Shares"). The shares issued will rank pari passu with the existing issued common shares.   Application has been made   to the Financial Conduct Authority for admission of the New Common Shares to the standard listing segment of the Official List and to the London Stock Exchange for admission to trading (together "Admission"). It is expected that Admission will become effective at 8.00 a.m. on or around 7 April 2021. 

 

Following Admission of the New Common Shares , the Company's issued share capital will consist of 211,870,502 common shares with no further shares held in Treasury.

The above figure of 211,870,502 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in Gulf Keystone under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
