Interoil Demerger and Cash Distribution


Phoenix Global Resources plc (AIM: PGR; BCBA: PGR), the upstream oil and gas company offering its investors an opportunity to invest directly into Argentina's Vaca Muerta shale formation and other unconventional resources, is pleased to provide an update on the Interoil demerger and cash distribution.


The Company is pleased to confirm that IOX Investments Limited ("GuernseyCo") has completed the sale of the remaining Interoil Shares it held in respect of the Exchangeable GuernseyCo Shareholders who did not exercise their right to exchange Exchangeable GuernseyCo Shares for Interoil Shares in the six-month exchange period.


GuernseyCo is now in a position to redeem all Exchangeable GuernseyCo Shares that were not exchanged though a distribution of the net proceeds from the sale of the remaining Interoil Shares. The amount of the distribution is £0.01532621 per each Exchangeable GuernseyCo Share held.


GuernseyCo's registrar, Anson Registrars Limited ("Anson"), has been appointed to effect the final distribution and will be sending a letter from GuernseyCo to registered Exchangeable GuernseyCo Shareholders today containing information regarding the distribution process in respect of the net proceeds of the sale. Should you require any further information you should contact Anson by telephone on +44 (0) 1481 711301 or via email at


Details of the applicable distribution process for those Exchangeable GuernseyCo Shareholders whose shares are held in non-UK jurisdictions will be released in accordance with the respective local market regulations.


More specifically, with regards to Exchangeable GuernseyCo Shares held in Argentina through the Caja de Valores S.A. ("CVSA"), the cash distribution will be made by the CVSA in US Dollars unless an Exchangeable GuernseyCo Shareholder elects to be paid in Pounds Sterling, in accordance with the notice to be released by the CVSA after receiving the corresponding information from the international central securities depository, Euroclear. Should you require any further information, you should contact our lawyers, Perez Alati, Grondona, Benites & Arntsen at who are assisting in this process.
