Notice to convene extr.general meeting

Latvijas Gāze, JSC: Trading in shares on stock exchange to be suspended on September 1 and 2 for extraordinary shareholders’ meeting

In order to ensure a clear status of rights for the shareholders of Latvijas Gāze as at the moment when the list of shareholders of the to-be-established company Conexus Baltic Grid is compiled, Latvijas Gāze has asked the Stock Exchange to suspend trading in the company’s shares on September 1 and 2. Thus, it will be made sure that all standard trade transactions are concluded by the moment of determination of the list of shareholders, which is the end of the day of September 2. 

We hereby reiterate that the record date for participation at the Extraordinary shareholders’ meeting of September 2 is August 25. This means that, if a shareholder wishes to vote in favour of or against the spin-off of Latvijas Gāze at the shareholders’ meeting and thereby wishes either to become a shareholder of Conexus Baltic Grid or to apply for compensation, the shareholder has to make sure that he becomes a shareholder of Latvijas Gāze before the list of shareholders for shareholders' meeting is recorded and has to maintain his shares by the end of the day of September 2.

Persons who purchase shares of Latvijas Gāze after August 25 will be able to apply for shares of Conexus Baltic Grid in writing up to the moment of voting on September 2.

We urge shareholders who are not against the company’s spin-off to timely apply for the new company’s shares in writing. If a written application is made, participation at the shareholders’ meeting is no longer mandatory.
