Further to the shareholder approval of the agreement between Shelton Petroleum and Petrogrand, Shelton Petroleum announces an indicative time plan for the completion of the transaction.
As previously announced, extraordinary shareholders’ meetings in both Shelton Petroleum and Petrogrand on 9 November 2015 approved an agreement between the two companies. As part of this agreement, Shelton Petroleum will acquire Petrogrand’s ownership in Sonoyta, holding USD 4 million and Petrogrand’s 49% stake in its Russian oil assets, for a consideration to be paid in Shelton Petroleum shares. Prior to this, Shelton Petroleum will distribute its Ukrainian operations to its shareholders and these operations are therefore not included in the transaction with Petrogrand.
Indicative time plan
7 December Last day of trading with right to participate in Shelton Petroleum’s distribution of the Ukrainian operations
8 December First day of trading without right to participate in Shelton Petroleum’s distribution of the Ukrainian operations
9 December Record date for Shelton Petroleum’s distribution of the Ukrainian operations
11 December Distribution of Shelton Petroleum’s Ukrainian operations
16 December Closing of the transaction whereby the shares in Sonoyta are transferred to Shelton Petroleum and 17 500 000 B shares are issued to Petrogrand
18 December Record date for Petrogrand’s distribution of the shares in Shelton Petroleum
22 December Distribution of Petrogrand’s shares in Shelton Petroleum
The time plan is indicative and dependent on among other things approval of a prospectus by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Swedish Finansinspektionen) prior to the issue of Shelton Petroleum shares.
Shelton Petroleum is arranging an OTC trading platform for the shares in the Ukrainian operations. It is expected that the trading can commence immediately following the distribution. Shelton Petroleum will publish on www.sheltonpetroleum.com a description of the Ukrainian company and its operations.
