/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF UNITED STATES SECURITIES LAW./
CALGARY, AB, July 18, 2022 /CNW/ – Tenaz Energy Corp. (“Tenaz“, “we“, “our“, “us” or the “Company“) (TSX: TNZ) would like to provide an update regarding our previously announced acquisition of SDX Energy Plc (“SDX”).
Through public disclosures and communication with SDX, we have been informed that a shareholder representing that it owns 25.7% of SDX’s issued and outstanding shares intends to vote against the proposed Scheme of Arrangement (the “Scheme“) to amalgamate Tenaz and SDX.
The Scheme requires, among other things, that 75% of the shares voted by SDX shareholders support the combination for it to become effective. In determining the shareholder approval, any shares voted must be eligible to vote and be validly voted in respect of the Scheme approval.
Tenaz has reserved the right to elect to implement the transaction by way of a takeover offer in compliance with the UK Takeover Code, subject to the UK Takeover Panel’s consent and NI 62-104 and the terms of the co-operation agreement with SDX. We are evaluating all available options with respect to the transaction and will provide a further update when appropriate.
Full details of approval requirements can be found in the Scheme Document distributed to SDX shareholders, which is available on our website at www.tenazenergy.com.
There has been no change or postponement of the shareholder meetings of either Tenaz or SDX to consider the transaction. Both meetings are scheduled for July 29, 2022.
Tenaz is an energy company focused on the acquisition and sustainable development of international oil and gas assets capable of returning free cash flow to shareholders. In addition, Tenaz conducts development of a semi-conventional oil project in the Rex member of the Upper Mannville group at Leduc-Woodbend in central Alberta.
