Red Rock Resources Plc

("Red Rock" or the "Company")

 

Issue of Shares under Share Incentive Plan and Directors' Dealings

 

 

6 April 2018

 

Red Rock Resources Plc, the natural resource investment and development company, announces that on 3 April 2018 the Board of Directors approved the issuance of 3,556,800 ordinary shares in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") under the Company's Share Incentive Plan ("SIP") for the 2017/18 tax year as agreed in the Trustees meeting held on 3 April 2018.

 

Under the terms of the SIP, once employees have satisfactorily completed their probationary period, they may sign up to Partnership Share Agreement, however, they may only begin active participation in the Partnership Agreement at the beginning of the tax year.

 

 

Partnership Share Agreement - Share Award

 

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 0.600p on 31 March 2017, which is the beginning of the accumulation period for the 2017/18 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 2017/2018 tax year, all Directors were eligible to participate in the Partnership and Matching Share schemes.
