Equity Placing and Loan Note Financing

1 March 2019

Curzon Energy plc (LON:CZN) the London Stock Exchange listed oil and gas development company, pursuing a targeted strategy of upstream North American natural gas appraisal and development assets, announces the completion of an equity fundraising of GBP95,000 at GBP0.0158 per New Ordinary Share and provides details on a loan note financing.

Highlights

-- Fundraising of GBP95,000, at a 21.5% premium to the closing mid-market share price on 28 February 2019

   --     Participation and support from existing shareholders and directors 
   --     Foundation for advancement of US natural gas development strategy in place 

-- Use of proceeds to progress the MOU with Pared Energy on a multi-TCF onshore natural gas project in Texas ("Texas Gas Project") to Heads of Terms ("HOT"), as well as providing short-term working capital

Scott Kaintz, Chief Executive Officer, comments:

"We are very pleased to have completed this important Placing at a premium to the current share price and secured additional financing from our largest shareholder following several months where our focus lay largely on cost reductions and corporate streamlining.

Support from both existing shareholders and directors in the Placing demonstrates the backing behind our initiative on an attractive multi-TCF onshore natural gas project in Texas with Pared Energy. We remain focussed on obtaining a meaningful interest in the Texas Gas Project as a priority, and also in progressing a farm-out or other external funding and development opportunities in relation to our heritage asset at Coos Bay.

This fundraising and the proposed HOT marks the beginning of the next phase of Curzon's development and we look forward to updating the market on its progression in due course."

   --     Scott Kaintz, a director of the Company: 949,367 Placing Shares 

-- Riverfort Capital Ltd, an entity which is controlled by Brian Kinane, a non-executive director of the Company: 632,911 Placing Shares.

In addition, the Company retains access to a loan note of up to $1,000,000 provided by YA Global Investments, LP ("YAGI"), an entity related to its largest shareholder ("Loan Note"). To date, $100,000 of this Loan Note has been drawn down.

The Company has been informed by YAGI that the Placing proceeds will be matched by an equal amount to be made available to the Company under the Loan Note.

The resulting funds from the Placing and the drawdown of the Loan Note will provide working capital through to completion of the definitive commercial terms of the HOT, which will provide Curzon with its initial working interest participation in the Texas Gas Project, at which point the Company will have to evaluate its funding requirements going forward.

Total Voting Rights (TVR)

The Placing is conditional on admission of the Shares to trading on the London Stock Exchange ("Admission").

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for Admission of the Shares, which will rank pari passu with the Company's existing issued Ordinary Shares. Dealings are expected to commence at 8.00 a.m. on or around 6 March 2019.

Following the issue of the Placing Shares, the issued share capital of the Company will consist of 83,032,971 ordinary shares of GBP0.01 each with voting rights.

The above figure of 83,032,971 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company under the Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
