Jadestone Energy Announces Grant of Stock Options
December 4, 2019—Singapore: Jadestone Energy Inc. (AIM:JSE, TSXV:JSE) (“Jadestone” or the “Company”), an independent oil and gas production company focused on the Asia Pacific region, announces that on December 3, 2019 it granted an aggregate of 75,000 incentive stock options to Lisa Stewart, its newly appointed Non-Executive Director (“NED”) and accordingly a person discharging managerial responsibilities (“PDMR”). The stock options are exercisable for a period of ten years at an exercise price of C$1.17 per share and will vest upon the third anniversary of the grant date.
The stock options were granted in accordance with the terms of the Company’s stock option plan, which has been approved by shareholders and the TSX Venture Exchange. The grant is consistent with Jadestone’s current NED compensation structure, which includes a mix of cash and incentive stock options. Having listed on the London AIM market last year, Jadestone is transitioning its NED compensation structure to be based on cash-only fees, consistent with UK best practice, and to thereby phase out stock options, as a part of compensation for NEDs, over a three-year period to 2022.
