Infinity revises Executive Director remuneration to provide for milestone-based incentives

Infinity to implement a performance-based incentive scheme for Executive Directors which is designed to align a proportion of the Executives' remuneration with value creation and shareholder returns

(PresseBox) ( Herisau, )
Infinity Lithium Corporation Limited (‘Infinity’, or ‘the Company’ - http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298809) wishes to advise that, as a result of its annual remuneration review, it is seeking to implement an incentive scheme for Executive Directors.  These incentives are performance based and are designed to align a proportion of the Executives’ remuneration with value creation and shareholder returns.

The San Jose Lithium Project (‘San Jose’) is an advanced, large lithium project in the European Union.  The rapid evolution in cathode technologies and the lithium chemicals market has resulted in an increasing focus on opportunities for lithium hydroxide and in particular, the availability to provide product for Europe from non-Chinese based converters.  The proximity of San Jose to growing European markets provides significant strategic value to European cathode producers and lithium-ion battery cell manufacturers, as Europe addresses surety of supply to support what is projected to be the 2nd largest electric vehicle market globally.

It has been determined that, subject to shareholder and any necessary regulatory approval, the Executive Directors, Ryan Parkin and Vincent Ledoux Pedailles be issued with ordinary shares in the event of successfully securing a material offtake contract for lithium chemicals and also obtaining significant strategic investment from related battery and/or automotive industry participants that advance the San Jose project.  A Share Option package will also be included in Ryan Parkin’s package.  Full details of the proposal are outlined in Appendix A.

The Company will put these incentive packages to shareholders for consideration at the next general meeting to be held at some point in 2019.
