Notice of Annual General Meeting
24 May 2021—Singapore: Jadestone Energy plc (the “Company”), an independent oil and gas production company focused on the Asia Pacific region, is pleased to announce that it will hold its annual general meeting (“AGM“) on 16 June 2021 at 9:00 am (UK time).
The notice of AGM and form of proxy have today been posted to shareholders, and copies have been made available on the Company’s website (www.jadestone-energy.com) and on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).
The AGM will be held at 3 Anson Road, #13-01 Springleaf Tower, Singapore 079909.
The Company’s preference is to welcome shareholders in person to the 2021 AGM, particularly given the constraints faced (as Jadestone Energy Inc.) in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Singaporean Government’s current guidance, regarding social distancing and the prohibition of public gatherings due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, remain in place. The Company is therefore proposing to hold the AGM with the minimum attendance required to form a quorum.
Accordingly, shareholders are encouraged to join virtually rather than attending the AGM in person. The Company will provide a live webcast of the meeting, giving shareholders the opportunity to listen to the AGM, however they will not be regarded as present at the AGM and will not be entitled to vote at the AGM. Voting at the AGM will be by poll, and will reflect all valid proxy voting instructions duly received in advance of the meeting. Shareholders who wish to attend the AGM webcast should register for the event in advance and attend via the following link:

The Board recognises the importance of shareholder engagement through the AGM process and as such, the Company will be holding a webinar on 10 June 2021 at 9:00 am (UK time) to respond to shareholders’ questions (submitted in writing) that they may have about the resolutions to be proposed at the AGM and any other relevant matters. These questions can be submitted in advance of the webinar via email@example.com up to 5:00 pm (UK time) on 8 June 2021. The Board will respond to all relevant questions during the webinar (where time permits), and will provide a replay of the event on its website thereafter.

Given the constantly evolving nature of the situation, should circumstances change before the time of the AGM in a manner which, in the view of the Board, permits shareholders to safely attend in person, the Company will notify shareholders of the change by making an announcement by RNS as early as is possible before the date of the AGM. Any updates to the position will also be included on our website at www.jadestone-energy.com.
As announced at the time of the release of the 2020 financial results on 22 April 2021, the Company intends to pay a dividend of USȼ1.08/share (US$0.0108/share) following the completion of the internal reorganisation and the planned capital reduction of Jadestone Energy plc. As the Company was incorporated earlier this year, it is required to prepare initial accounts which have to be reported on by the auditors to allow the dividends to be formally declared and paid to shareholders. The preparation of these accounts is underway, following the completion of the capital reduction. Once the accounts have been finalised and reported on, the Board intends to declare the dividend as an interim dividend, including an announcement on the timetable for payment of that dividend.
In addition, the Company announces that it has published its 2020 annual report which also includes the Company’s 2020 sustainability report.
The document is available on the Company’s website (www.jadestone-energy.com) and on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).
