Director exit arrangements


ReNeuron Group plc (AIM: RENE), a global leader in the development of cell-based therapeutics, announces that pursuant to the departure of its former Chief Financial Officer, Michael Hunt, certain exit arrangements were previously entered into which are deemed to be related party arrangements under the AIM Rules for Companies.


As set out in the Company's annual report, in addition to Mr Hunt's contractual entitlements, an ex gratia bonus of £40,000 was granted to reflect Mr Hunt's long service and contribution to the Company. In addition, the Board has agreed that certain of Mr Hunt's options would benefit from accelerated vesting, while the remainder in those particular schemes will lapse. Out of the 181,236 options under these particular schemes, 25,816 had vested under their original terms, 77,708 were agreed to have accelerated vesting while 77,712 were lapsed. Mr Hunt's options under other awards (as disclosed in the Company's latest annual report) amounting to 529,815 options remain unchanged.


The above arrangements constitute a related party transaction under the AIM Rules for Companies.  The directors, excluding Michael Hunt who is no longer a director, consider, having consulted with the Company's nominated adviser, Stifel Nicolaus Europe Limited, that the terms of the transaction are fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.
