Board Change Update


Sound Energy, the Moroccan focused upstream gas company, announced on 14 May 2019 that David Clarkson, a non-executive director of the Company, had informed the Company of his intention to step down from the Board on 13 August 2019 following a transitional period around the appointment of a new non-executive director. Following the appointment of Simon Davies as non-executive chairman of the Company on 23 May 2019, David Clarkson has resigned, as planned, as a director of the Company with immediate effect.


The Company also announces, further to the Company's announcement of 23 January 2018, that the Board has asked James Parsons, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, and he has agreed to remain in his current role whilst the Company continues to explore monetisation options available to the Company in respect of its Eastern Morocco portfolio.
