Calima Energy Limited (ASX: CE1) (Calima or the Company) announces the share sale facility for the holders of Less than Marketable Parcel (Holders own shares less than the value of AUD 500) of shares. The Company is proposing the sale facility without any involvement of an intermediary or having to pay brokerage. The corporation will cover all expenditures associated with the shareholders who use this facility except for tax consequences, which remain the tax holders’ responsibility. The corporation anticipates enabling this transaction will reduce the overhead costs of keeping many tiny stockholders. The feature is not available to shareholders who hold 5,556 shares or more. July 21st, 2023, will be considered the record date. Any shareholding of 5,555 or less based on the closing price of AUD 0.09 on the same date will be Less Than The Marketable Parcel.
Suppose the Minority Member (Holder of Less Than Marketable Parcel Shares) does not wish to use this facility to sell their holding. In that case, they need to provide a final call before September 8th, 2023, with a receipt of the share retention form. The holders interested in this facility do not need to take any action.
Following this offer’s completion, the Company intends to distribute the capital of AUD 3 million to its shareholders.
The Company may alter and terminate the dates and the facility, subject to the requirement of ASX listing rules and the organisation’s policies. Any such updates will be shared with the investors via a market announcement.
Calima Energy Limited also intends to execute its second distribution of AUD 3 MILLION to shareholders, as announced in the third quarter of FY2023. The objective is to increase the frequency of shareholder distributions, subject to prevailing market conditions and commodity prices. If needed, Calima Energy may restart the share buy-back program.
Previously, Calima Energy (CE1) launched a half-year dividend program beginning in the second half of 2022 following the ongoing strong performance of its production assets. The dividend payout totalled $2.5 million, reflecting a half-yearly yield of 2.4 per cent at the current share price.

About Calima Energy Limited
Calima Energy Limited is a Canadian oil and gas-producing energy company focused on the responsible development of high-quality assets in Western Canada. It is an environmentally conscious explorer of natural resources in Australia that is in the vanguard of developing the energy industry. Through a transformational merger with Blackspur Oil in 2021, the Company unleashed the power of alliance. As a result, it became a high-margin oil and gas producer exposed to WTI prices. The Company generates stable production from its Thorsby and Brooks assets, primarily conventional oil and gas, with a low decline rate of around 65%. These assets offer significant growth potential as production doubles within 18 months.
In addition to the Thorsby and Brooks assets, Calima Energy holds over 34,000 acres of Montney rights in the “liquids-rich” fairway. The Montney assets, known for their abundant liquids, provide an upside opportunity in domestic gas and global LNG markets.
With a substantial acreage position, Calima Energy is well-positioned to capitalise on the potential of the Montney formation and leverage the growing demand for liquid-rich natural gas.
