Director, Staff & Partner Option Award

Metal Tiger plc (LON:MTR) the London Stock Exchange AIM listed investor in strategic natural resource opportunities is pleased to announce an award of options to directors and key members of the Metal Tiger team.

The options outlined below will be issued subject to shareholder approval at the Company's upcoming AGM which is expected to take place during June 2016 in London.

The Board of Metal Tiger has today approved the issue of 25 million options as allocated below with a maximum 3 year exercise period and an exercise price of 2 pence per new ordinary share in Metal Tiger plc, a premium of approximately 70% to the share price of the Company when the award was approved by the board.

Director Option Award:

10 million options are to be awarded to Directors as follows:

Terry Grammer (Non-Executive Chairman) - 5 million options

Cameron Parry (Non-Executive Director) - 3 million options

Alex Borrelli (Non-Executive Director) - 2 million options

Staff and Partner Option Award:

In addition, 15 million options are to be allocated to key members of the Metal Tiger team including those assisting the company with plc management responsibilities and/or the development of our investing interests overseas.  

Staff and Partner options will be subject to the same terms as the director options above, but will not be exercisable for a period of one year from the date of award and require the option holder to remain engaged with Metal Tiger throughout the one year period.

Paul Johnson Chief Executive Officer of Metal Tiger said  "the approach we are taking is to ensure all directors, staff and working partners have a strong alignment of interests with those of shareholders. 

The issue of director options is part of this process, and today we have brought into the options pool the key staff and partners whose commitment and engagement is a significant factor in our forward success.

We are putting this option award to the vote at the AGM in June 2016, giving shareholders the opportunity to vote on this proposal.

As a company Metal Tiger is making great strides forward and we look forward to updating the market in due course with regard to various aspects of our business development."
