A proportion of the Options may vest and be exercised at 0.5 pence per Ordinary Share anytime between 9 April 2022 and 9 April 2025 if the average share price in the three months ending 9 April 2022 (the "Average Share Price") equals or exceeds 6.00p.  At an Average Share Price of 6.00p, 15% of the Options become exercisable, for all of the Options to vest the Average Share Price must equal or exceed 10.00p, and a straight line sliding scale applies to determine the amount vesting if the Average Share Price is between 6.00p and 10.00p.

 

The Company is currently in the process of finalising share option grants to key employees over a further 1,025,000 Ordinary shares. Following these grants, the total number of shares under option will be 20,478,376 representing 8.4% of the issued share capital.
