Sapura Energy Berhad ("Sapura Energy” or "the Company") wishes to announce that it has been granted a time extension of up to 30 November 2023, to submit its Practice Note 17 (“PN17”) regularisation plan to the relevant regulatory authorities.
In a filing with Bursa Malaysia today, its principal adviser MIDF Amanah Investment Bank Berhad announced on behalf of the Company that Bursa Malaysia Securities had given the extension to Sapura Energy vide its letter dated 12 June 2023.
The extension of time is needed given the complexity of the Company’s overall Reset plan. Sapura Energy’s debt restructuring efforts, which underpins its regularisation strategy, are progressing positively.
Earlier this month, the High Court of Malaya granted Sapura Energy and 22 of its wholly owned subsidiaries an extension period of nine months for its Convening and Restraining Orders, to 10 March 2024. The extension will allow Sapura Energy to finalise proposed schemes with its financiers and other creditors, as part of the Company’s debt restructuring plan. The court-convened meetings with the creditors are envisaged to be held by the end of October 2023.
