Vast Resources plc
("Vast" or the "Company")

Award of rights under the Company's Share Appreciation Rights Scheme

 

Vast Resources plc, the AIM-listed mining company, announces the offer of rights as set out below (the 'Award') under the Share Appreciation Rights Scheme (the 'Scheme') which Scheme was set up to incentivise directors and senior executives/consultants of the Company.

 

The basis of the Scheme

 

The basis of the Scheme is to grant a fixed number of 'share appreciations rights' ('SARs') to participants.  Each SAR consists of rights at the discretion of the Company either to receive ordinary shares in Vast (the 'Shares') based on the relevant exercise price ('Exercise Price') or to receive cash to a value equal to the difference between the Exercise Price and the daily VWAP on the date of exercise of a SAR.  The normal rules for the Scheme provide for the Exercise Price to be a price equal to the six month VWAP of a share immediately preceding the grant of a SAR, but in view of the recent decline in the Company's share price a higher Exercise Price has been agreed at 19.8p.  This compares with the closing share price on 5 July 2021 of 7.15p or current six-month VWAP of 10.51p.  A SAR may be exercised at any time between a given vesting date ('Vesting Date') and the final date (the 'Vesting Period').  The Vesting Date is the date on which the Company confirms that any performance or other condition attached to the SAR has been satisfied.
