(AIM:ANGS)

Notice of General Meeting ("GM")

The Company announces that is has today posted a Circular to Shareholders convening a General Meeting ("GM") to be held at the offices of Fladgate LLP, 16 Great Queen Street, London WC2B 5DG on Monday 30 October 2023 at 11.00 a.m (the "Circular"). A copy of the Circular is also available from the Company's website, www.angusenergy.co.uk .

Extracts from the Circular are set out below including the background:

General Meeting

On 28 September 2023, the Company announced that Kemexon Ltd has agreed to convert its GBP3 million Junior Bridge Facility (Kemexon Facility), together with GBP311,378.19 of interest and GBP94,441.64 of fees, into equity in the Company at a price of 0.66 pence per share, which would result in the issue of 516,033,308 new Ordinary Shares in the Company (Kemexon Conversion Shares). As explained in that announcement, the Company is required to increase its Directors' authorities to enable it to issue and allot the Kemexon Conversion Shares. Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for admission of the Kemexon Conversion Shares following the holding of the general meeting to increase the Directors' authorities, and it is expected that admission will become effective and dealings in the Kemexon Conversion Shares on AIM will commence within seven days of the holding and passing of the necessary resolutions.

In addition, the Company is required to increase its Directors' authorities to enable it to allot new Ordinary Shares in connection with the following:

1. the grant to Aleph Finance Limited of warrants to subscribe for up to 300,000,000 new Ordinary Shares (Aleph Warrant Shares) as part of the GBP6m Junior Bridge Facility arrangements, as announced on 21 July 2023 (Aleph Facility); and

2. in accordance with the terms of the Aleph Facility, the allotment of shares in connection with any future agreement between the Company and Aleph regarding the repayment of the Aleph Facility in equity on maturity in lieu of cash, in either case up to a maximum of 1,500,000,000 new Ordinary Shares (Aleph Facility Shares).

In respect of point 2 above, it is a requirement of the Aleph Facility that the Company seek Shareholder approval for the necessary authority to issue such number of Ordinary Shares to be issued regarding mutual agreement to repay the Aleph Facility and therefore whilst the Company does not currently expect these Ordinary Shares to be issued given the ongoing discussions to complete a global refinance of this and other Company indebtedness, it is complying with these requirements now in putting such resolutions to Shareholders.

Accordingly, the Company is now convening a general meeting (GM) to table the necessary shareholder resolutions to enable the Directors to allot new Ordinary Shares in accordance with the above, being:

1. resolutions to authorise the issue of new Ordinary Shares comprising the Kemexon Conversion Shares, the Aleph Warrant Shares and the Aleph Facility Shares, and to disapply statutory pre-emption rights in respect of such allotments; and

2. to authorise the Directors to allot further Ordinary Shares and to disapply statutory pre-emption rights in respect of allotment up to a certain amount. This will give the Directors flexibility to allot further Ordinary Shares in the future should they consider it to be in the best interests of the Company to do so.
