16 January 2017

 

Red Rock Resources Plc ("Red Rock" or the "Company"), the natural resource development Company, announces the grant of 35,000,000 options to directors and key staff representing in aggregate 7.49% of the existing issued share capital of the Company. Each option entitles the holder upon exercise to one ordinary share of 0.01p in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares").

 

Pursuant to the recommendation of the Remuneration Committee, the board has awarded the following options:

All options have a life of six years from the date of grant and an exercise price of 0.8p. The closing mid-market price on AIM as at the close of business on Friday, 13 January 2017 was 0.525 p.

 

The vesting date in respect of tranches not yet vested will be accelerated, though the performance condition will be retained, in the event of a takeover event.

 

The issue of the Options to the directors is a related party transaction under the AIM Rules. Accordingly, the independent non-executive director, Mr Michael Nott, considers, having consulted with the Company's Nominated Adviser, that the terms of the Options are fair and reasonable insofar as its shareholders are concerned.

 

The grants to Andrew Bell and Scott Kaintz were made under an EMI (Enterprise Management Incentive) scheme.

 

Following the grant of options to directors, the resultant total directors' shareholdings are as follows:
