9 April 2019
Red Rock Resources Plc, the natural resource investment and development company, announces that on 2 April 2019 the Board of Directors approved the issuance of 6,556,800 ordinary shares in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") under the Company's Share Incentive Plan ("SIP") for the 2018/19 tax year as agreed in the Trustees meeting held on 1 April 2019.
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 Free Share Agreement, employees may be awarded up to £3,600 worth of Ordinary Shares in the Company in any one tax year. Ordinary Shares to the value of £3,600 per existing employee have been awarded in respect of the 2018/19 tax year, representing a total of 3,000,000 Ordinary Shares, with reference to the mid-market closing price of 0.60p as of 29 March 2019.
Partnership Share Agreement - Share Award
In addition, employees may purchase up to £1,800 (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, 1,185,600 Partnership Shares and 2,371,200 Matching Shares (being 3,556,800 Shares in aggregate) have been awarded with reference to the mid-market closing price of 0.60p on 29 March 2019, which is the end of the accumulation period for the 2018/19 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.
In respect of the 2018/19 tax year, all Directors were eligible to participate in the Free, Partnership and Matching Share schemes. 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:
