Update on transfer of onshore shale gas business

5 June 2014

Further to the announcement of 13 May 2014, Egdon wishes to notify that it is still awaiting consent from DECC for the transfer of licences from Alkane and now expects this consent to be obtained by 12 June 2014. As a consequence, admission of the new ordinary shares issued pursuant to the transaction with Alkane, the Placing and Open Offer, is now expected to become effective on or around 12 June 2014 rather than 6 June 2014 as originally notified.
