Additionally, the Company also confirms the issue of 1,250,000 ordinary shares due under the third and final tranche of the Company's performance rights plan (the "Performance Rights") for Non-Executive Directors.

Performance rights

 

The Company also confirms it has issued 1,250,000 ordinary shares to satisfy the unconditional vesting of the third and final tranche of the Performance Rights issued to certain Non-Executive Directors on 29 March 2021, being the third anniversary of admission to trading on AIM. The previous two tranches were announced on 15 April 2019 and 7 April 2020.

 

Consistent with the previous two tranches, the following is the breakdown of the ordinary shares issued under the Performance Rights:

Accordingly, a total of 2,353,296 ordinary shares of US$0.001 each (being 1,103,296 ordinary shares in respect of Directors Remuneration Shares and 1,250,000 ordinary shares in respect of Performance Rights as detailed above) have today been issued. Application has been made for the admission of 2,353,296 ordinary shares of US$0.001 each on AIM, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and the Australian Securities Exchange with admission expected to take place on Wednesday 14 April 2021.

 

For ASX's purposes, and having previously obtained shareholder approvals for the issues, the shares are issued under ASX Listing Rule 10.11 (Remuneration Shares) and 10.14 (Performance Rights) respectively.

 

Following this issue, the Company's issued share capital consists of 2,454,121,469 ordinary shares. No shares are held in treasury. Accordingly, the total number of voting rights in the Company is 2,454,121,469.

 

The above figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

 

Cancellation of certain Performance Rights and Options

 

Following the determination by the Company that the applicable vesting conditions within each category would not be achieved, a total of 7,500,000 Performance Rights and Unlisted Options previously issued have been cancelled as follows:
