The Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders is convened (i) for the approval of the secondary listing of OMV Petrom S.A. on the London Stock Exchange by issuance of global depositary receipts representing interests in OMV Petrom S.A.’s existing shares, which are intended to be admitted to listing on the official list of the United Kingdom Financial Conduct Authority and to be admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s main market for listed securities and (ii) for the empowerment of the Executive Board of OMV Petrom S.A. to, depending on favorable market conditions, take all necessary actions and formalities for the implementation of this approval. Both the approval and the empowerment are valid until 31 December 2016.
The intended secondary listing is expected to diversify the shareholder base, increase visibility, expand research coverage by international brokers and improve overall trading liquidity of the company.
The Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders is convened to appoint a new member of the Supervisory Board for the remaining period of the mandate granted to Mr. Gerhard Roiss, further to the waiver of his mandate of member of the Supervisory Board.
