THE INFORMATION CONTAINED WITHIN THIS ANNOUNCEMENT (THE "ANNOUNCEMENT") IS DEEMED BY THE GROUP TO CONSTITUTE INSIDE INFORMATION AS STIPULATED UNDER THE MARKET ABUSE REGULATION (EU) NO. 596/2014, AS APPLIED IN THE UNITED KINGDOM. UPON THE PUBLICATION OF THIS ANNOUNCEMENT VIA REGULATORY INFORMATION SERVICE, THIS INSIDE INFORMATION IS NOW CONSIDERED TO BE IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN.

Coro Energy plc

("Coro Energy" or the "Company")

Results of the Placing and Notice of General Meeting

Further to the announcement of 22 February 2021 of the acquisition of GEPL and the proposed placing (the "Placing Announcement"), Coro Energy, the South East Asian energy company focused on supporting the regional transition to a low carbon economy, announces the results of the Placing which, together with the Open Offer, will result in gross proceeds of up to GBP5.0 million being raised.

Definitions

Other than where defined, capitalised terms used in this announcement have the meanings given to them in the Placing Announcement.

Results of the Placing

Pursuant to the Placing Announcement, the Company is pleased to announce that a total of 1,125,000,000 Placing Shares have been successfully placed at the Placing Price of 0.4 pence per Ordinary Share. Pursuant to the Placing, the Company has raised gross proceeds of GBP4.5 million (net proceeds of approximately GBP3.8 million after expenses, including costs related to the Acquisition). Additional proceeds of up to GBP0.5 million are to be raised pursuant to the Open Offer.

The issue of the Placing Shares, and completion of the Acquisition, remain subject to, inter alia, the approval by Shareholders of the Resolutions giving authorities to the Directors to issue, inter alia, the Placing Shares free of pre-emption rights.

Gneiss Energy and Tennyson Securities acted as lead bookrunners in connection with the Placing.

General Meeting and Open Offer

A General Meeting to consider and approve the Resolutions is expected to be held at the offices of Watson Farley & Williams LLP, 15 Appold Street, London, EC2A 2HB at 11.00 a.m. on 15 March 2021. A circular convening the General Meeting and describing the Open Offer to existing Shareholders is expected to be posted to Shareholders on 26 February 2021 and will be made available on the Group's website at www.coroenergyplc.com .

Given the current circumstances in relation to Covid-19, the Board has made the decision that the General Meeting will be held as a closed meeting in accordance with the provisions of the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020. This means that the General Meeting will be convened with the minimum quorum of shareholders (facilitated by the Company) to conduct the formal business of the General Meeting. As such, for the safety and security of all involved, shareholders and their proxies are unable to attend the General Meeting in person.

Related Party Transaction

Lombard Odier Asset Management (Europe) Limited ("Lombard Odier"), a related party of Coro under the AIM Rules for Companies ("AIM Rules") as a result of Lombard Odier's existing 22.9% shareholding in the Company, has subscribed for 112,500,000 Placing Shares at the Placing Price. Lombard Odier's participation in the Placing is therefore deemed a related party transaction under the AIM Rules. The independent Directors of the Company, having consulted the Company's nominated adviser, consider the terms of Lombard Odier's participation in the Placing to be fair and reasonable insofar as the Shareholders are concerned.

Recommendation and voting intentions

The Directors believe the Proposals to be in the best interests of the Company and its Shareholders as a whole. Accordingly, the Directors unanimously recommend Shareholders to vote in favour of the Resolutions as they intend so to do in respect of their beneficial shareholdings.
