30 December 2022



For immediate release

30 December 2022

Ithaca Energy plc (the "Company")

Exercise of share options by director

As set out in the Company's prospectus dated 9 November 2022 (the "Prospectus"), Mr Gilad Myerson, Executive Chairman of the Company, has an option over ordinary shares in the Company (the "GM Option"), representing a right to subscribe for ordinary shares in the Company (the "GM Option Shares"). The GM Option became immediately exercisable on occurrence of the Company's initial public offering (the "IPO").

On 29 December 2022, Mr Myerson submitted exercise instructions to the Company in respect of approximately 60% of the GM Option (the "Option Exercise") in order to acquire and hold additional ordinary shares of the Company. The Option Exercise was granted over such number of ordinary shares of the Company as have a value on the exercise date of US$3.00 million (being approximately GBP2.49 million). Accordingly, the part-exercise of the GM Option will result in Mr Myerson acquiring 1,402,759 GM Option Shares, based on the Company's share price of 177.60 pence as of 29 December 2022. As a result of the Option Exercise, Mr Myerson will subsequently hold 0.32% of the Company's issued share capital. The remainder of the GM Option which is not exercised on this occasion will remain outstanding and capable of exercise by Mr Myerson on accordance with the terms of the GM Option.

Mr Myerson will not be selling any GM Option Shares as part of the Option Exercise and the GM Option Shares remain subject to the lock-up agreed to by the Directors in the IPO, as detailed in the Prospectus.

Mr Myerson's increased shareholding further aligns his interests with those of the Company's shareholders in the realisation of maximum shareholder value, and Mr Myerson continues to be incentivised by the Management Equity Plan, with ordinary shares vesting over a five-year period starting from 1 October 2021.
