Board Change

 

Sound Energy, the Moroccan focused upstream gas company, announces that, as part of its planned preparations for the forthcoming potential partial divestment of Eastern Morocco portfolio, Brian Mitchener, Exploration Director of the Company will step down from the Board with effect from 31 March 2020.

 

At the Board's request, and to enable the Company to conserve cash balances, Mr. Mitchener has agreed to accept new ordinary shares in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") in settlement of termination of his employment contract. As a result, the Company expects to issue new Ordinary Shares, at the then prevailing price per Ordinary Share, with an aggregate market value of £107,983 on or around 25 January 2020 (the "Settlement Shares") and a further announcement will be made in this regard, as appropriate, in due course.

 

In addition, the Company announces that a total of 863,682 restricted stock units ("RSUs") previously awarded to Mr. Mitchener will now vest in full on 31 March 2020, ahead of the original date of vesting of the RSUs, announced on 26 April 2018, of 1 January 2021.

 

The notification below, made in accordance with the requirements of the Market Abuse Regulation, provides further details of the accelerated vesting of the RSUs.

 

 

 

Marco Fumagalli, acting Chairman, commented:

 

"I am grateful to Brian for his leadership of our exploration programme and his continued support of our orderly handover of executive responsibilities for this next important phase of our development."
