Premier Oil PLC - Notice of AGM

RNS Number : 5295N
Premier Oil PLC
20 May 2020
 

Premier Oil plc (the "Company")

Posting of 2019 Annual Report and Financial Statements
and Notice of Annual General Meeting

20 May 2020

Further to the announcement made by the Company on 22 April 2020 regarding a deferral of its 2020 Annual General Meeting ("AGM") to 25 June 2020, the Company has today posted to shareholders the 2019 Annual Report and Financial Statements and the Notice of AGM. Copies of both documents are also available on the Company's website at www.premier-oil.com.

Given the current restrictions put in place by the UK Government regarding public gatherings, the Company strongly encourages shareholders to vote by proxy as attendance at the AGM will not be possible and anyone seeking to attend the meeting will be refused entry. Arrangements will be made by the Company to ensure that the minimum number of shareholders required to form a quorum will attend the meeting in order that the meeting may proceed and the business concluded.

The AGM will be available via webcast on the Company's website and shareholders will also have the opportunity to submit questions to the meeting in advance. Further details can be found in the Notice of AGM. Any changes to the arrangements described in the Notice of AGM will be announced by RNS and on the Company's website.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.1., copies of the Notice of AGM and related form of proxy have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at:  https://www.fca.org.uk/markets/primary-markets/regulatory-disclosures/national-storage-mechanism 

In view of the decision to delay the AGM and the consequent extended gap between Annual Report publication and issuance of the Notice of AGM, updated disclosures on Directors' interests and significant shareholdings are provided in the appendix below.
