Extraordinary General Meeting of Lundin Petroleum AB – 22 March 2017
22 March 2017
An Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders of Lundin Petroleum AB (publ) (the “Company”) was held today Wednesday 22 March 2017 in Stockholm.
The Meeting was convened in connection with the proposed transaction to spin-off the Company’s non-Norwegian producing assets into a newly formed company called International Petroleum Corporation (IPC) and to distribute the shares of IPC, on a pro-rata basis, to Lundin Petroleum shareholders as announced by the Company on 13 February 2017.
The Meeting resolved, in accordance with the Board of Directors’ proposal, to approve the dividend in kind of all shares in IPC to Lundin Petroleum shareholders. Three (3) shares in Lundin Petroleum shall entitle the holder to one (1) common share in IPC. If the shareholding in Lundin Petroleum is not evenly divisible by three, the holder will receive an entitlement to a fraction of a share. Such fractions will be added together with the fractions held by other shareholders into whole shares in IPC, which will be sold on the market by Pareto Securities. The proceeds, without deduction of any commissions, will then be paid to the relevant IPC shareholders via Euroclear Sweden. The Board of Directors is authorised to resolve upon the record date for the right to the distribution of IPC shares.
Completion of the distribution and the listing of the IPC shares remain subject to the receipt of the necessary approvals regarding the reorganisation of Lundin Petroleum to form IPC and the receipt of conditional listing approval for the IPC shares to be listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and the Nasdaq First North stock exchange. IPC plans to initially list its shares on Nasdaq First North, with an intention to move to NASDAQ Stockholm. Listing of IPC’s shares on the TSX and Nasdaq First North, and then NASDAQ Stockholm, will be subject to IPC fulfilling the requirements of the respective exchange. There can be no assurance that the shares will be accepted for listing on the TSX, Nasdaq First North or NASDAQ Stockholm.
Completion is expected to occur during April 2017.
Questions regarding the distribution of IPC shares will be answered by Pareto Securities at the following telephone number +46 8 402 51 40 during normal office hours in Sweden, or at the following email address email@example.com, until the distribution has been completed.
