Awilco Drilling PLC – Change of ISIN and method of VPS

Reference is made to the announcement on 23 November 2022 that Awilco Drilling PLC (“Awilco Drilling”) intended to apply for a transfer of its listing from Oslo Børs to Euronext Growth Oslo and to the announcement on 1 November 2022 that Awilco Drilling will change its structure of VPS registration to Sponsored Norwegian Depository Receipts (“SNDRs”).

This will also result in a change of ISIN. As described in the press related dated 1 November 2022, the change of registration to SNDRs is necessary as a result of the implementation of the EU Central Securities Depositories Regulation (Regulation EU no 909/2014) in Norway.
