Beowulf Mining Plc

("Beowulf" or the "Company") 

Award of Options

Beowulf (AIM: BEM; Spotlight: BEO), the Nordic focused mineral exploration and development company, announces that today options have been granted over a total of 8,000,000 ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the capital of the Company ("Share Options"), representing approximately 1.41% of the issued share capital of the Company, to certain directors and a senior manager of the Company, as outlined below:

Kurt Budge

 

Chief Executive Officer

Non-Executive Director

2,500,000

5,000,000

Rasmus Blomqvist

 

Exploration Manager

2,000,000

4,000,000

 

In addition to the above, 1,250,000 Share Options have been granted to certain other employees of the Company.

This award of the Share Options recognises the contribution made by the directors and employees to the continued advancement of the Company.  Options were last awarded to Kurt Budge in July 2015, and to Christopher Davies and Rasmus Blomqvist in January 2017. 

The Share Options are exercisable at a price of 7.35 pence per share, being a 30% premium to the closing mid-price of 5.65 pence per share on 11 January 2019. The Share Options fully vest one year from the date of grant or fully vest immediately if the individual leaves the Company.  The Share Options are valid for five years from the date of grant.   

Following the grant of Share Options, there will be 23,250,000 ordinary shares of 1 pence each of the Company under option to directors and employees of the Company, representing 4.10% of the existing issued ordinary share capital of the Company.

Kurt Budge and Christopher Davies are directors of Beowulf and Rasmus Blomqvist is a director of a subsidiary of Beowulf, Oy Fennoscandian Resources AB, and are therefore regarded as related parties as defined by the AIM Rules for Companies (the "AIM Rules"). The grant of Share Options to each of them is classified as a related party transaction for the purposes of Rule 13 of the AIM Rules. Mr Göran Färm, being the independent director for the purposes of Rule 13, considers, having consulted with the Company's Nominated Adviser, SP Angel Corporate Finance LLP, that the terms of the related party transaction are fair and reasonable insofar as the shareholders of the Company are concerned.
