Application To Cease to be a Reporting Issuer in Canada
3 March 2022 – Singapore: Jadestone Energy plc (“Jadestone” or the “Company”), an independent oil and gas production company focused on the Asia-Pacific region, announces that it is applying to the securities regulatory authorities in the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta to cease to be a reporting issuer in these two jurisdictions.
If granted, such relief would mean that Jadestone is no longer classified as a designated foreign issuer under Canadian securities regulations, and would no longer be required to file financial statements and other continuous disclosure documents with the Canadian securities regulatory authorities.
This application continues the pivot away from the Company’s legacy Canadian securities market presence, and is justified by the very low and decreasing level of Canadian based shareholding in the Company (currently estimated at around 0.09% of issued capital), as well as significant expected efficiency improvements and cost reductions. The pivot has, among other steps, already seen the Company’s shares admitted to AIM in August 2018, the Company’s compensation structures realigned from North American to UK norms in May 2019, the Company’s shares delisted from the TSX Venture exchange in March 2020, the adoption of the UK Quoted Companies Alliance Corporate Governance Code in place of Canadian governance norms and practices in December 2020, and the redomicile of Jadestone’s parent company to the UK in April 2021.
Jadestone will continue to comply with all UK regulatory and disclosure requirements.
