144

EASTLEIGH, UK / ACCESSWIRE / July 4, 2024 / i3 Energy plc (AIM:I3E)(TSX:ITE), an independent oil and gas company with assets and operations in the UK and Canada, announces that the court order cancelling i3 Energy’s deferred A shares (issued in conjunction with the share capital reduction, as previously announced by the Company on 20 June 2024) and the amount standing to the credit of the share premium account, along with the associated court approved statement of capital, has been delivered to the Registrar of Companies. The Capital Reduction will become effective upon the registration of the court order by the Registrar of Companies, which is expected to occur in the next few days.

The Capital Reduction has resulted in the creation of distributable reserves which will give maximum flexibility to consider the payment of dividends and otherwise to return value to Shareholders, should the Board consider it appropriate. With this implementation of the Capital Reduction, there is no change in the nominal value of the Company’s shares, or the number of shares issued. The Capital Reduction did not involve any distribution or repayment of share premium by the Company and will not reduce the underlying net assets of the Company.
