Red Rock Chairman Andrew Bell comments: "We are pleased by the support offered by investors and shareholders for this novel instrument. With the expectation of near term positive developments including an IPO for an investment, production, and a compensation award, we did not want to dilute supportive shareholders by issuing a discounted equity or debt instrument that might be traded out into the market, and this instrument in our judgment fairly balances the competing interests, and of course incentivises us to develop positive news for the Company."
