The buy-back option in Crown Energy Iraq has expired

On 18 November 2013 Crown Energy entered the current subsidiary Crown Energy Iraq AB (“Crown Iraq”). The consideration consisted of newly issued shares in Crown Energy through a share issue. In addition to the newly issued shares, T Intressenter AB (“TIAB”) also received a buy-back option for a limited time which gave TIAB the right to buy back 250 shares in Crown Iraq. This represents 25 percent of all shares in Crown Iraq. As a further part of the agreement a consortium agreement was signed with TIAB regarding representation in the board and management of Crown Iraq. According to the agreement it would expire in September 2018. In connection with TIAB’s expired buy back option in May 2016 the consortium agreement was mutually terminated. This means that there are no outstanding buy-back options in Crown Iraq and Crown Energy owns 100 per cent of the total 1 000 shares in Crown Iraq. Due to this fact the provision of 6 204 KSEK are no longer reported in Crown Energy’s balance sheet.

This information is information that Crown Energy AB (publ) is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation. The information was submitted for publication, through the agency of the contact person set out below, at 3:30 PM CET on 15 July 2016.
