Commenting on the update, CEO Paul McDade said:

"We are very pleased to have Afentra's shares re-admitted to trading after the lengthy suspension period associated with the RTO process. We are emerging from suspension with two complementary transactions that provide a strong growth platform underpinned by robust cash flow and significant upside value.

Since launching just over a year ago, Afentra has been focused on establishing a profile as a credible and responsible independent oil and gas company with a clear vision to support an effective and just energy transition in Africa. In parallel we have been actively screening opportunities against the strict criteria we established at the outset in terms of asset type, geography and valuation metrics. To support our business development activities, we have also engaged in preliminary discussions with both debt and equity capital markets to ensure we have supportive investors for the deals we bring to market. These transactions are the culmination of all of those aspects and we look forward to demonstrating the value accretive nature as we complete them both in the coming months.

The market drivers that support Afentra's purpose and long-term growth strategy remain compelling, despite the current impact of a volatile commodity price environment, and we remain highly active and disciplined in our assessment of the opportunity landscape. We view these inaugural deals in Angola

as the early building blocks in our long-term growth ambitions and look forward to rewarding our shareholders for their trust and patience."
