BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS / ACCESSWIRE / December 22, 2022 / Bradda Head Lithium Ltd. (AIM:BHL) (TSXV:BHLI) (OTCQB:BHLIF) (“Bradda Head” or the “Company“), the North America-focused lithium development company, is pleased to announce that it has adopted a stock option plan (the “Stock Option Plan”), subject to receipt of shareholder approval at the next annual general meeting of shareholders of the Company.
In line with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”), the maximum number of new ordinary shares which may be issued under the Stock Option Plan is 10% of the Company’s issued and outstanding ordinary shares at the time of grant. Currently the Company has 8.3% of its issued share capital under option. The Stock Option Plan has a “rolling” limit, as the number of ordinary shares reserved for issuance pursuant to the grant of stock options will automatically increase as the Company’s issued and outstanding share capital increases. The limit includes outstanding stock options previously granted. A copy of the Stock Option Plan has been filed on SEDAR and is available on the Company’s website.
The TSXV has conditionally accepted the Stock Option Plan, subject to shareholder approval to be obtained at the next annual general meeting of shareholders of the Company. If approval from shareholders is not obtained, the Stock Option Plan will terminate and all new options issued under the Stock Options Plan will be terminated (all pre-existing options will remain).
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has granted (subject to shareholder approval at the next AGM) an aggregate of 1,000,000 options (the “Options”) being 500,000 each to its Independent Non-Executive Directors, Euan Jenkins and Alex Borrelli (together referred to as the “NEDs”), each at an exercise price of 10.5 pence, being a 24% premium to market close on Tuesday 20 December 2022.
Options for the NEDs are subject to the following conditions:
- Options vest immediately;
- No performance or non-performance conditions attached to them;
- Are exercisable for a period of five years from date of issue; and
- The options issued to each participant should lapse upon any participant no longer being an employee or connected person remunerated by the Company.
The grant of the Options is subject to the approval and requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange, as well as the approval of a majority of votes cast at a meeting of shareholders of the Company, excluding the votes cast by shareholders who have been granted Options. In the event that such approval is not obtained, the Options will terminate. No Options may be exercised until such approval is obtained.
