United Oil & Gas PLC ("United" or the "Company") 

Proposed Admission to AIM 


Cancellation from the Official List



United Oil & Gas Plc, the London Stock Exchange listed oil and gas exploration and development company, announces that the Board proposes to apply for the Company's Ordinary Shares of 1p each ('Ordinary Shares') to be admitted to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange ('Admission').  In tandem with this, the Company proposes to cancel the Company's Ordinary Shares from the standard segment of the Official List and from trading on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities ('Cancellation').  The Board believes that the move to AIM is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders as, in the opinion of the Directors, AIM represents a better fit for fast growing companies of United's size and is expected to lead to significant cost and administrative savings for the Company.


Details of Cancellation and Admission

Given the Company is listed on the standard segment of the Official List, Shareholder approval is not required to effect Cancellation. Accordingly, the Company will apply to cancel the listing of the Ordinary Shares on the Official List and their admission to trading on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities, and will simultaneously apply to the London Stock Exchange for the admission of the Ordinary Shares to trading on AIM. The AIM Admission Document, when finalised, will be published and it is anticipated that the last day of dealings of the Ordinary Shares on the Main Market will be 27 February 2019 and the effective date of the Move to AIM will be 28 February 2019, being not less than 20 business days from the date of this announcement.


Following Cancellation and Admission, Ordinary Shares that are held in uncertificated form will continue to be held and dealt through CREST. Share certificates representing those Ordinary Shares held in certificated form will continue to be valid and no new Ordinary Share certificates will be issued.


Beaumont Cornish is acting as Financial Adviser to the Company in connection with the Admission to AIM and will act as Nominated Adviser to the Company on Admission becoming effective.  Optiva Securities will continue to act as the Company's broker. 


This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of Regulation (EU) 596/2014.
