  • The relevant shareholder acknowledges that it will cease to be entitled to any dividends, distributions or voting rights in respect of its Shares while the breach continues.

Employee Share Scheme Restructuring

The Company has established a number of employee share schemes which have allowed employees (including executive Directors) to purchase shares in the Company.The Company has committed to restructure these schemes, such restructuring taking effect prior to or upon the allotment of Shares under the Share Offer. The effect of the restructuring will be:

  • All shares allocated under these schemes prior to listing will be fully paid, and the Company will have provided interest free loans in aggregate of $7,202,861 to pay for any shares under these schemes not already purchased by the relevant employee in cash;

  • All shares allocated under these schemes will be ordinary fully paid shares in Pumpkin Patch, ranking equally in all respects with all other shares;

  • Pumpkin Patch must pay grossed up bonuses to employees (in some cases over three years, and in some cases payable immediately) to enable the employees (including executive Directors) to fully or substantially discharge the amount of these loans and the full cost of this has been fully provided for in the 31 July 2004 forecast financial information.

  • Approximately one third of each employee’s shares issued under the employee share schemes will be held by a trustee as security for the payment of the loans owing to the Company, and will typically be released progressively over three years to employees as their loans are progressively discharged. Different arrangements are in place for the executive Directors, Maurice Prendergast, Greg Muir and Chrissy Conyngham. Greg Muir will have 512,000 Shares held in escrow and progressively released over three years. Maurice Prendergast will procure the provision to the trustees of the scheme of 1,500,000 Shares which will be held (by way of security) and progressively released over three years. Chrissy Conyngham will have 570,000 Shares held in escrow and progressively released over three years.
