Conversion of Salaries/Fees into Share Options

 

Independent Oil and Gas plc ("IOG" or "the Company"), (AIM: IOG.L), the development and production company focused on becoming a substantial UK gas producer, announces that certain Directors and other members of the management and technical teams have accepted all or part of their salaries and fees as options over Ordinary Shares in the Company ("Options") for periods between 1 September 2019 and 29 February 2020.

 

Salary/Fee Sacrifice Options

As further detailed in the table below, such personnel have accepted 1p Options in lieu of salaries or fees due in the relevant periods. All these Options have a five-year term from the effective date of 1 April 2020 and are issued by reference to the volume weighted average price per Ordinary Share ("VWAP") over the period to which they relate.

The VWAP over the full period from 1 September 2019 to 29 February 2020 was 18.24p. Where services have been provided or salary or fees sacrificed for only part of that 6-month period the VWAP has been adjusted accordingly.

The conversion of salaries and fees into Options is consistent with previous salary and fee sacrifice transactions. A total of 403,104 new Options have been issued for this period, with an exercise price of 1p each, representing 0.08% per cent of the Company's current issued share capital.

Certain information communicated in this announcement was, prior to its publication, inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of Regulation 596/2014.
