Issue of Shares

RNS Number : 4237J
Red Rock Resources plc

Red Rock Resources Plc

("Red Rock" or the "Company")

 

Issue of Shares under Share Incentive Plan and Directors' Dealings

 

 

9 April 2020

 

Red Rock Resources Plc, the natural resource development company with interests in gold, manganese and other minerals, announces that on 8 April 2019 the Board of Directors, having received notification of the shares to be issued under the Company's Share Incentive Plan in respect of the 2019/20 tax year following a meeting of the Trustees of the Share Investment Plan ("SIP") on 1 April 2020, approved the issuance of 14,717,790 ordinary shares in the Company ("Ordinary Shares").

 

Under the terms of the SIP, once employees have satisfactorily completed their probationary period, they may sign up to both the Free Share Agreement and Partnership Share Agreement, however, they may only begin active participation in the Partnership Agreement at the beginning of the tax year.

 

Free Share Agreement - Free Share Award

 

Under the SIP, employees may be awarded up to £3,600 worth of Ordinary Shares in the Company in any one tax year. The ultimate decision on the quantum of award of Free Shares lies with the Directors, and this year, having regard to the uncertainties created by the coronavirus pandemic, the Directors did not consider it appropriate to award any Free Shares at a time when shareholders are fully exposed to significant falls in market prices. 

 

Partnership Share Agreement - Share Award

 

In addition, employees may purchase up to £1,800 by a monthly deduction from salary (or up to a maximum of 10% of their salary, whichever is the lower) worth of Shares (the "Partnership Shares") in any one tax year. The Company will match these shares on a 2:1 basis (the "Matching Shares"). The Partnership and the Matching Shares are awarded with reference to the lower of the mid-market closing price at the beginning or at the end of the accumulation period.

 

Therefore, 4,905,930 Partnership Shares and 9,811,860 Matching Shares (being 14,717,790 Shares in aggregate) have been awarded with reference to the mid-market closing price of £0.00145 on 31 March 2020, which is the end of the accumulation period for the 2019/20 tax year.

 

The Directors have participated in the Partnership Share award and the above numbers include such participation, further details of which are set out below.

 

All shares awarded under the Partnership Share Agreement will be held by the SIP Trustees and such shares cannot be released to participants until five years after the date of the award, except in specific circumstances.

 

The Chairman of the Company, Andrew Bell, comments : "This Government-approved scheme has historically been a valuable way to incentivise staff and encourage them to hold shares in the Company. The commitment is made by employees at the beginning of the tax year, they make monthly payments throughout the year, and the shares vest at the end of the tax year. The Free Share element has been foregone this year, as it seemed inappropriate at the current time."

 

Directors' Participation

 

In respect of the 2019/20 tax year, all Directors were eligible to participate in Partnership Share Agreement. These shares awarded to Directors have been included in the table below, which sets out the total shareholding and interests of the Directors in the enlarged share capital of the Company:
