Decision for the company to enter voluntary liquidation (p. 11)

On June 30, 2023, the company held an annual meeting, which also constituted a second control meeting after the company had to prepare a balance sheet for liquidation purposes due to large write-downs related to the company's Russian operations. During the annual meeting, the shareholders decided on the continued operation of the company while it was decided to divest all of Petrosibir's Russian subsidiaries, JSC Ingeo Holding and LLC Company UFA Petroleum to the company's CEO Pavel Tetyakov. The annual meeting also decided to exit the ownership of 49% in Ripiano Holdings, which Petrosibir owns through the wholly-owned subsidiary Sonoyta Limited. The background to the divestment of the company's Russian assets is described in the annual reports for 2022, 2023 and in the decision material for the Annual General Meeting held in 2023, which can be found in the notice to said meeting.

As of the date of the Annual General Meeting, Petrosibir has divested the holdings in all subsidiaries mentioned above.

The background to the decision to divest the assets is mainly reproduced below:

Geopolitical Situation:

Due to a severely deteriorated geopolitical situation and sanctions against Russia, as well as counter-sanctions from Russia, Petrosibir's Russian subsidiaries have no ability to obtain any kind of -financing, debt or equity, external or internal. Similarly, the risk of regulatory interventions has increased, both due to a deteriorated sanctions climate, but also because Petrosibir has not succeeded in developing the assets in accordance with the taken license obligations.

Impact of Sanctions:

EU sanctions prevent new investments and financing in the energy sector in Russia, which negatively affects Petrosibir's opportunities to finance development of its subsidiaries.

Financial Limitations:

In addition to both Petrosibir and the local Russian subsidiaries being prohibited or limited in their ability to obtain -financing due to restrictions and sanctions, the possibility of cross-border payments is severely limited. The only transfers that Petrosibir has been able to carry out are smaller monthly payments on the group internal loans that have existed between the companies.

Failed Previous Attempts to Divest the Assets:

Previous attempts to sell the Russian assets have failed due to the prevailing climate and restrictions.

Board's Proposal - Voluntary Liquidation

The board proposes that the company meeting decides that the company should enter voluntary liquidation in accordance with Chapter 25, Section 3 of the Companies Act.

Due to limited assets, current shareholder structure and history with exposure to Russia and uncertainty about whether the company will be able to maintain a banking commitment in the future, the board assesses it not possible to continue to operate effectively and feasibly, neither within the current business branch or a new one. The assessment is thus that there are no alternatives to liquidation.

Based on today's known conditions, the liquidation dividend is estimated to amount to approximately SEK 1.5 million, after liquidation costs. The estimated time for distribution is the last quarter of 2024 or start of the first quarter of 2025. The decision on liquidation shall apply from the day of the company meeting's decision.

The person proposed to be appointed as liquidator is lawyer is Mikael von Schedvin.

The board proposes that the company meeting authorizes the chairman of the board and the company's CEO, or the person appointed by them, to take the measures required for the decision's registration at the Companies Registration Office.


The Annual report of 2023 will be available at the Company´s office and on for at least three weeks prior to the meeting. Board's complete proposals for resolutions and other documents pending the general meeting will be available at the Company's office at the latest three weeks before the meeting. All documents will be sent free-of-charge to shareholders who so request and provide their mailing address. The documents also will be presented at the general meeting.

If requested by a shareholder and provided that the Board deems that it can take place without causing material damage to the Company, the Board and the CEO shall provide information about circumstances that may affect the assessment of an item on the agenda, circumstances that may affect the assessment of the Company's or its subsidiaries' financial situation, and the Company's relationship with another company within the Group.
