Pertaining to the results of a concluded consultation, both the Board of Directors and key stakeholders have mutually agreed that the 2021 Annual General Meeting should be hosted via an online teleconference with absentee voting, as per the previous assembly in 2020. The event shall be hosted on the previously scheduled date of 9 April, with no changes to any items on the agendum, including motions to alter the Director’s remuneration policy and the appointment of an external auditor for the financial year. It is also still intended that Rusneftegaz publishes its 2020 Consolidated Financial Statements prior to the Annual General Meeting, which are then to be analyzed by the Board of Directors during the conference with an approval vote being held accordingly. It is preferred that all ballots for the Annual General Meeting shall be sent electronically, and all interested parties are to be contacted shortly with instructions as to how to submit their votes, although a postal option is available upon request. All competed ballots must be transmitted to the relevant officer by the close of business on 8 April. Any questions in regards to these changes should be directed via email or telephone.
