    ORDINARY BUSINESS


    RESOLUTIONS 1 AND 2 - REͲELECTION OF DIRECTORS - MR RICHARD YEATES AND MR JULIAN HANNA

    Background to resolution

    Clause 17.4(a) of the Constitution and Listing Rule 14.4 provides that no Director may hold office for longer than three years or the third annual general meeting following their election, whichever is longer, without retiring and resubmitting themselves for reͲelection. As such, both Mr Yeates and Mr Hanna retire from office as at this Annual General Meeting and, being eligible, submit themselves for reͲelection as Directors.

    About the Directors Mr Richard Yeats

    Mr Yeates is a geologist with more than 30 years' mining industry experience in various roles, and has significant experience across a wide range of resource projects around the world. He is familiar with the ASX regulatory environment and has had exposure to international resource funds and financial institutions.

    Mr Yeates has been a Board member since 2009. Further details about Mr Yeates are set out in the Company's 2015 Annual Report.

    Mr Julian Hanna

    Mr Hanna is a geologist with over 35 years' mining industry experience both locally and internationally. Mr Hanna was a founding Director of Western Areas at its incorporation in 1999, and has been continually associated with the Company since that time. Mr Hanna held the position of Managing Director until January 2012, and was instrumental in the exploration success and project development of the Forrestania Nickel Operation, which has turned Western Areas into one of Australia's largest nickel mining companies.

    Mr Hanna has been a Board Member since 2000. Further details about Mr Hanna are set out in the Company's 2015 Annual Report.


    Board recommendation

    The Board (other than Mr Yeates because of his interest in this resolution) unanimously recommends that Shareholders vote in favour of Resolution 1.

    The Board (other than Mr Hanna because of his interest in this resolution) unanimously recommends that Shareholders vote in favour of Resolution 2.


    RESOLUTION 3 - ADOPTION OF REMUNERATION REPORT

    NonͲbinding resolution to approve the Remuneration Report Background to resolution

    A considerable amount of time has been spent defining the Company's remuneration framework which has been overwhelmingly passed by vote at all recent AGMs. There has been no material change to the remuneration structures or incentive programmes during the current year. It is noted that financial year 2016 (FY16) base salaries have been frozen at the same level as financial year 2015 (FY15).

    A summary of the framework is provided below. Full details of the remuneration outcomes can be found in the Remuneration Report contained in the Company's 2015 Annual Report.

    Executive remuneration framework

    The remuneration framework is structured to align the Company closely to current market practice, most significantly around long term incentive (LTI). As such, the components of total annual remuneration for senior executives in FY15 included fixed remuneration (comprised of base salary, superannuation and nonͲmonetary benefits, including salary sacrifice), target STIs and target LTIs. The annual LTI grant serves to place a larger portion of an executive's remuneration atͲrisk and to focus the executives on longͲterm Shareholder value generation.

    Fixed remuneration

    The Company is Australia's second largest nickel sulphide company (the first being BHP Billiton) with extensive operations in the Forrestania region including mining, processing, marketing and export of nickel concentrates. The fixed remuneration levels of senior executives for the 2015 financial year remained comparable to market peers, furthermore executive remuneration levels have been frozen at FY15 levels for the coming year. The FY16 salary freeze will result in a single base salary increase for the past 4 financial years.

    ShortͲterm incentive

    Despite challenging commodity market conditions, the Company maintained a strong operational performance during FY15 with a reduction in unit costs, increase in profitability despite a reduction in nickel price, increase in dividends and high level of safety and environmental performance. While strong operational performance was achieved, only one member of KMP achieved 100% of their target short term incentive (STI) opportunity, reflecting the challenging nature of the target performance indicators (KPI). Above budget levels of performance were achieved for KPIs relating primarily to operational and financial KPI targets for the period.

    The Remuneration Report for FY15 includes considerable detail on the KPIs that were used to assess performance and the rationale for their choice.

    LongͲterm incentive

    The Company's Performance Rights Plan was initially approved by Shareholders at the 2011 Annual General Meeting and overwhelmingly reͲapproved at the 2014 Annual General Meeting, with annual grants being made under the Performance Rights Plan since the 2012 financial year. The intention of the LTI scheme is for executives to receive a grant of Performance Rights each year, ensuring that LTI forms a key component of executives' total annual remuneration so as to ensure that executives are focussed on longͲterm Shareholder value generation.


    LTI grants for FY16 will be on the following basis:

    1. The LTI dollar value of grants made to KMP is set at a fixed percentage of their base salary, ranging from 50% to 100% (100% is applicable solely to the Managing Director), depending on the KMP's position within the Company. This level of LTI remains in line with market practice.

    2. The Performance Rights will vest subject to a relative total shareholder return (TSR) hurdle, with the Company's TSR performance being assessed against a customised peer group of companies of a similar nature. No Performance Rights will vest unless the percentile ranking of the Company's TSR for the relevant performance period, as compared to the TSR results for the peer group companies, is at or above the 50th percentile.

    3. The FY16 grants are measured over a three year period which aligns with common market practice.

    Executive service agreements

    All senior executives are employed under executive service agreements that broadly align with current market practices and are in accordance with current laws. The executive service agreements include notice periods ranging from 6 months up to the standard maximum of 12 months. There were no material changes to these agreements during the financial year.

    NonͲExecutive Director remuneration

    FY16 NonͲExecutive Directors fees have been frozen at FY15 levels.

    NonͲbinding Resolution and consequence of voting against Resolution 3

    Shareholder approval is being sought to adopt the Remuneration Report under section 250R(2) of the Corporations Act. Shareholders are advised that pursuant to section 250R(3) of the Corporations Act, this Resolution is advisory only and does not bind the Directors or the Company. However, the Corporations Act provides that if the Company's Remuneration Report resolution receives an 'against' vote of 25% or more of votes cast at the AGM, the Company's subsequent Remuneration Report must explain the Board's proposed action in response or, if the Board does not propose any action, the Board's reasons for not making any changes. The Board will take into account the outcome of the vote when considering the Company's remuneration policy, even if a 25% 'against' vote is not received.

    In addition, the Corporations Act sets out a 'two strikes' reͲelection process. Under the 'two strikes' reͲelection process, if the Company's Remuneration Report receives an 'against' vote of 25% or more of all votes cast at two consecutive annual general meetings (that is, 'two strikes'), a resolution (the 'spill resolution') must be put to the second AGM, requiring Shareholders to vote on whether the Company must hold another General Meeting (known as the 'spill meeting') to consider the appointment of all of the Directors who must stand for reͲappointment (other than the Managing Director). If the spill resolution is approved at the second AGM by a simple majority of more than 50% of the eligible votes cast, the spill meeting must be held within 90 days of that second AGM (unless none of the Directors, other than the Managing Director, stand for reͲappointment).

    The Company's remuneration report did not receive an 'against' vote of 25% or more at the Company's previous Annual General Meeting held on 20 November 2014. At that 2014 Annual General Meeting, 99% of votes cast on the resolution to adopt the Remuneration Report were cast in favour of adopting the report.

    A reasonable opportunity will be given to Shareholders at the meeting to ask questions about, or make comments on, the remuneration report.


    Board recommendation

    The NonͲExecutive Directors recommend that Shareholders vote in favour of the Resolution to approve the Remuneration Report. The Executive Directors whose remuneration has been disclosed in the Remuneration Report are interested in the outcome of this Resolution and therefore do not consider it appropriate to make a recommendation to Shareholders.

    The Chairman of the Meeting intends to vote all available proxies to the extent expressly authorised in favour of this Resolution.

    SPECIAL OR OTHER BUSINESS


    RESOLUTIONS 4, 5 & 6 - ISSUE OF PERFORMANCE RIGHTS TO MR DANIEL LOUGHER AND MR DAVID SOUTHAM

    Background to Resolutions

    At the Company's 2014 Annual General Meeting, Shareholders overwhelmingly reapproved the Western Areas Performance Rights Plan for senior executives of the Company. For the purposes of making FY16 grants, Resolutions 4, 5 and 6 seek Shareholder approval for the issue of 299,750 Performance Rights to Mr Lougher and 263,003 Performance Rights to Mr Southam in accordance with the Performance Rights Plan.

    ASX Listing Rules

    Listing Rule 10.11 provides a general restriction against issuing equity securities (including Performance Rights) to 'related parties' (which include directors) without shareholder approval.

    Listing Rule 10.14 provides that a Company must not issue equity securities to a director of the Company under an employee incentive scheme unless the issue has been approved by holders of ordinary securities. If approval is given by shareholders under Listing Rule 10.14, separate shareholder approval is not required under either Listing Rule 7.1 or 10.11.

    Under Resolutions 4, 5 and 6, the Company seeks approval, for the purposes of Listing Rule 10.14, from Shareholders for the issue of Performance Rights to Messers Lougher and Southam which constitute the issue of equity securities to directors under an employee incentive scheme.

    Chapter 2E of the Corporations Act

    Chapter 2E of the Corporations Act regulates the provision of 'financial benefits' to 'related parties' by a public company.

    For the purposes of Chapter 2E of the Corporations Act, Messers Lougher and Southam, being Directors, are 'related parties' of the Company and the grant of Performance Rights pursuant to the Performance Rights Plan will constitute the giving of 'financial benefits'.

    The Board (other than Mr Lougher because of his interest in Resolutions 4, and Mr Southam because of his interest in Resolutions 5 and 6) considers that the grant of Performance Rights to Messers Lougher and Southam is an appropriate and reasonable component of their remuneration, and that the financial benefit represented by the grant of the Performance Rights falls within the 'reasonable remuneration' exception in section 211 of the Corporations Act. For this reason, the Company is not seeking Shareholder approval of Resolutions 4, 5 and 6 for the purposes of Chapter 2E of the Corporations Act.


    Sections 200B and 200E of the Corporations Act

    The Corporations Act provides that the Company may only give a person a benefit in connection with their ceasing to hold a 'managerial or executive office' if it is approved by Shareholders or an exemption applies (for example, where the benefit together with other benefits does not exceed the payment limits set out in the Corporations Act, including where the aggregate benefits do not exceed one year's average base salary).
