The Salary Sacrifice Shares were issued in lieu of cash remuneration for the period June through to August 2023 in order to preserve capital and ensure more funds are directed towards project activities, as previously advised to the market on 30 May 2023. This arrangement will conclude on the earlier of 31 December 2023 or the signing of a binding agreement for the sale (in part or whole) of Empyrean's interest in Mako.

The issue of the Salary Sacrifice Shares is being completed under the Company's existing authorities and is not subject to the approval of shareholders. Following the issue of the Salary Sacrifice shares, the Company's enlarged issued share capital will comprise 985,470,767 Shares. This figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, securities of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

 

Application will be made for the Salary Sacrifice Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. Admission is expected to take place on 20 September 2023. The Salary Sacrifice Shares will rank pari passu with existing Shares in issue.
