Michael Power is appointed to the Board as Non-Executive Director as of 4 January. Michael has been with the Company since March 2020 and held various roles in the Finance department as well as the role of Company Secretary.

As announced on the 21 December, due to the company being unable to appoint an auditor for the 2022 audit and publish audited financial statements for the financial year ended 31 December 2022, trading in the Company’s shares on the AIM and EuroNext Growth markets will be cancelled. The cancellation will take effect on 4 January 2024.

The Board will continue to pursue closing out the sale of PetroNeft’s Russian assets as previously announced and will update the shareholders accordingly through news updates posted exclusively to the Company’s website.

 David Sturt, Chairman of PetroNeft Resources plc, commented:

“I want to thank both Anthony and Eskil for their vision & guidance through exceptionally challenging times, particularly over the last year when the Company was unable to secure Directors and Officers (D&O) insurance.  I wish them both well in their future endeavours.

During such challenging times, we are pleased to be able to announce the appointment of Michael Power FCA to the Board as Non-Executive Director. Michael, is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland, has been with the Company since early 2020 and brings a wealth of both financial and non-financial emerging market experiences,”
