NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 19, 2022--

Irenic Capital Management, L.P. (together with its affiliates, “Irenic” or “we”), which has an approximately 1.6% stake in Capricorn Energy plc (LSE: CNE.L) (“Capricorn” or the “Company”), today announced that it supports Palliser Capital Master Fund Limited’s (together with its affiliates, “Palliser”) decision to requisition a general meeting (the “EGM”) of the Company’s shareholders, whereat they will have an opportunity to vote on the removal and replacement of members of the Board of Directors (the “Board”).

Adam Katz, Co-Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Irenic, commented:

“Irenic applauds Palliser’s decision to requisition an EGM, which will provide Capricorn’s shareholders a much-needed opportunity to reconstitute a majority of the Company’s Board. We agree with Palliser that Capricorn’s leadership has been dismissive of investor feedback and, in turn, has lost the confidence of shareholders. Like many of our fellow shareholders, we strongly oppose the Company’s currently proposed merger with NewMed Energy Limited Partnership. It is time for Capricorn to benefit from new leadership that is committed to embracing shareholder input and pursuing value-maximizing strategies that are superior to the proposed merger.”

Irenic’s October 19 th letter to Capricorn’s Board can be found here.
