Grant of Options under incentivisation schemes

 

Rose (AIM: ROSE), the AIM quoted natural resources business, announces the grant of options over ordinary shares of 0.1p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") under the Company's existing employee share option schemes ("Options") on 6 April 2018. A total of 7,900,000 Options have been issued to various directors, employees and contractors of the Company.

 

The Options will vest in three equal annual tranches, on the first, second and third anniversary from the date of grant. Each Option is exercisable into one Ordinary Share and, once vested, can be exercised up until the tenth anniversary of the grant date. The Options are exercisable at a price of 3.5p per share, being a circa 56 per cent premium to the closing mid-market price of the Ordinary Shares on AIM on the last trading day prior to the grant.

 

Of the 7,900,000 Options issued, 4,300,000 have been issued to certain directors of the Company as set out below, and the other 3,600,000 Options have been issued to employees and contractors of the Company. Details of the Options granted to directors are outlined in the table below:
