The key is the performance triggers. The reality is that if you want high calibre industry professionals you have to pay for them, either bumper salary of generous incentive package. I know what I prefer as an investor

I have sent a message to the Co to pass on my displeasure and to ask if the performance criteria can be made public.

Shipment of product and profitability if it's anything like previous options. "The Board has resolved to establish an audit committee comprising Giles Clarke (Chairman) and Nick Harrison (Non-Executive Director) and a remuneration committee comprising Giles Clarke (Chairman) and Nick Harrison (Non-Executive Director)." With those two fine upstanding people in charge of options and auditing, you have nothing to worry about :-/

Indeed but: since being on board share price has halved, JORC has been pushed back 6 months and funds raised at lower price increasing dilution. No transparency on targets he has been given to get his 3 year vesting, why not publish. I'm a holder just not sure they are putting their best foot forward at the moment!!!

'Employee Stock Options All kinds of companies give their employees stock options as incentives. An employee stock option gives you the opportunity to buy shares of your employer's stock at a predetermined "strike price." If the strike price is lower than the market price of the stock at the time you can exercise the option, then you stand to make a nice profit. The aim of the stock option is to align your interests with those of your company's shareholders — namely, you all want the stock to go up. Vesting Date When you get an incentive stock option, you typically can't use it right away. It wouldn't be much of an "incentive," after all, if your profit came baked right in and you could enjoy it immediately. You usually have to stay with the company a certain length of time to become eligible to exercise your options. The date when options truly become "yours" to exercise is the vesting date. Vesting Schedules Stock options "vest" according to a vesting schedule, and companies can set the schedules to reflect the kind of incentive they're trying to give. For example, a company could give you options on 6,000 shares that vest all at once in five years, which would be designed to keep you around for the long haul. Or you could get staggered options that reward you in stages, with, say, 100 options a month for five years. The company may let you exercise options immediately after each batch "vests," or only in stages, or you may not be able to exercise them until you either get fully vested or you leave the company. The Cliff One common vesting technique goes by the name of "the cliff." This requires a specific period of time before any options vest at all. For example, you may have to work for a full year or two years before vesting begins, after which your options begin to vest on a regular schedule. The cliff serves several purposes, such as maintaining a strong incentive and preventing take-the-money-and-run situations soon after the options are granted. For start-ups that give new hires options — not an uncommon practice — the cliff can protect the company from the possibility of a bad hire racking up vested stock options that the company would then have to let him exercise right before the employee is terminated.

Can't disagree with either of the above. Would be nice to know what the performance criteria are to earn the options. If it includes a share price of 50p+ then we probably won't mind him having them. As usual we are never told and so the company can make them up as they go along to ensure he gets them. Share price at COB on 6th January, day before he joined, 7.75-8.25p. He has really earnt it hasn't he!!

This is my reply from earache to my question of whether her was OK with me copying his post here :- GRSL I don't do ADVFN, or anywhere else they openly allow multiple ID's, but you're welcome to copy over any of my placing posts you deem useful. And many thanks for asking. Most wouldn't have bothered. If only the KENV BoD matched your integrity. Thanks again. To all those who say it will do no good, you may be right in that they'll find a way of getting the Resolutions passed but if you're so happy to be disenfranchised of your legal rights and can't be bothered to even register a protest against the contempt with which this BoD treats the PI's then heaven help us for the future. You're giving them Carte Blanche to raise at whatever price they like, as much dilution as they like, with as many warrants and options as they like for themselves and their buddies and to do it whenever and as often as they like over the next 15 months. And by allowing these Resolutions to go through there won't be a sodding thing you can do about it. You're freely giving them the tools with which to screw us. Crazy, muddle-headed thinking.

This is the e-mail I have sent to the company and Capita Asset Services if anyone wants to copy and paste and do the same...........many thanks to earache for his excellent summary on Wed of which I copied and based this e-mail on. I received my placing circular yesterday and would like to point out the following. This is a GM, sometimes more accurately called an EGM when a company comes cap in hand for more money to the detriment of existing shareholders' investment. The Circular that I received yesterday morning hxxp://www.kvplc.com/images/announcements/01082017%20-%20Circular.pdf sets out the detail of the Resolutions and the BoD's recommendation as to which way to vote. It would have been helpful, to say the least, if it had the Form of Proxy attached as stated (and as required by Law) to actually allow me to vote! The figure of 5 days is crucially important and gives a clue as to the disdain with which the BoD dismisses me and all of its shareholders. By Law the Circular had to be out 14 calendar days before the GM and votes in 2 clear days before it. In choosing 9.30am on Weds 16th Aug as the GM date then, in effect, that allows only 8 working days to get all of the Proxy Forms by post to the Registrars, Capita, in Beckenham Kent by 9.30am on Mon 14th Aug. Just about doable if they'd handed out the bleeding forms! But it's worse than that. Giles Clarke has determined that Proxy Forms must be in by 9.30am on Thurs 10th Aug or our votes will be invalid !!! That gives us just 5 days. So: - 20M new shares have already been issued from the existing authority and that part of the Placing is due for Admission to Aim on 3rd Aug. That means £1.2m is already in the company coffers. - The other 42.5M new shares, if approved, will be issued on a Non Pre-emptive basis and admitted to AIM on 13th Aug. - Authority to issue and the basis of issue are, imo, co-dependent and are Special but they've split it into an Ordinary Res for the issue (>50% votes needed) and a Special Res for the basis (>75% needed) to help get the placing away. They only hold 13.56% themselves. - An agreement by shareholders to waive their Pre-emptive Rights should last only until the next AGM when it can be re-affirmed by vote. This Res is for it to last 15 months!! - If I don't vote then Giles Clarke will vote my holdings and other shareholders holdings in favour. As a nominee holder I rang my broker to vote against all of the resolutions , but they were not aware of this. I believe this to be illegal and request that this is cancelled / postponed immediately. I will be e-mailing the FSA and forwarding my complaints as above.

I personally feel that they (BOD's) were aware they would need to raise cash so an executive decision was taken to be limited with actual figures and info in RNS's to keep the share price low. This would make it easier to sell the placing shares with a lower risk to the new investors. Taking that on board, provided we don't need another cash raise, I would expect there to be a steady stream of positive news now in the lead up to year end.

They estimate Lithium JORC for Q1 2018. It was written in a presentation that someone posted a link to last week. Unfortunately I did not save the link but it is on the website somewhere!
