We have received notification from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) by a letter dated today, Monday, June 10, 2019 at 12:42pm directing the suspension of the validly convened 42nd Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) of Oando PLC (“the Company”) on the premise of the Ex-parte Order of the Federal High Court, Ikoyi Lagos in Suit No: FHC/L/Cs/910/19 in Mr. Jubril Adewale Tinubu & Anor V Securities & Exchange Commission & Anor (“Ex-parte Order”).

The Company disagrees with the SEC’s position that its directive to suspend the 42nd AGM accords with the Ex-parte Order. Oando PLC by notice to the public and its shareholders on May 10, 2019, validly convened its 42nd Annual General Meeting. The actions contained in the SEC’s letter to the Company dated Friday, May 31, 2019, was effectively put in abeyance by the Ex-parte Order of the Federal High Court, which was granted on Monday, June 3, 2019.
