The board of Tethys Oil proposes redemption procedure of SEK 103 million


The Board of Directors of Tethys Oil AB has resolved to call for an
extraordinary general meeting on Tuesday, 25 October 2016 to resolve on
a redemption procedure of SEK 3.00 per share, corresponding to a
distribution to the shareholders amounting to approximately SEK 103
million.


Tethys Oil has a strong financial position and continues to generate
positive cash flow from operations. The company’s capital structure
target is to have a balanced approach to growth and shareholder
distributions, with a long term capital structure target of a zero net
cash position. Taking the company’s capital structure target into
account, it is the Board of Directors’ view that further capital can be
distributed to shareholders at this time while sufficient capital
remains to also pursue growth.

The Board of Directors has decided to propose to the shareholders to
resolve on a redemption procedure, whereby every share is split into one
ordinary share and one redemption share. The redemption share is then
automatically redeemed at SEK 3.00 per share. This corresponds to a
distribution to shareholders amounting to SEK 102,643,578.

The redemption procedure is subject to approval by the shareholders at
the extraordinary general meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, 25
October 2016. Further information regarding the Board of Directors’
proposal will be presented in the notice and other documents prepared in
advance of the extraordinary general meeting. The company will also
publish an information brochure about the redemption procedure on its
web page (www.tethysoil.com).
