As announced on 17 June 2014, the new board of the Company comprises Cameron Parry (CEO), Alex Borrelli (Non-Executive Chairman) and Paul Johnson (Non-Executive Director).  In line with the Company appropriately incentivising directors, while maintaining tight control on the Company's overheads and cost base, the Board has today granted a total of 8,340,000 options to subscribe for new ordinary shares in the Company (the "Management Options"), representing, in aggregate, 4.99% of the current issued share capital. 

The Management Options vest immediately and the key terms are:

·    exercise period of three years; and

·    unexercised options lapse if the option holder leaves the Company.

The Management Options have been granted as unapproved share options as follows:

Cameron Parry is directly interested in 5,000,000 Management Options.  In addition, he is a director of BlackStar which itself is interested in 27,000,000 ordinary shares representing 16.18% of the issued share capital and 40,000,000 warrants.

The Management Options issued to Alex Borrelli and Paul Johnson represent their entire interests in the share capital of the Company.
