Business Description

TransGlobe Energy Corporation is a publicly-traded, international exploration and production company based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with oil interests in the Arab Republic of Egypt ("Egypt") and oil and gas interests in Alberta, Canada. 

TransGlobe has a proven track record with extensive Canadian and Middle East experience.  This experience combined with an extensive and diversified portfolio of development and exploration opportunities provides for significant upside potential.  TransGlobe’s focus is principally on oil fields with remaining recoverable resources of 2 to 20 million barrels with high individual per well productivity and reserves.  The existing portfolio includes a significant production and reserve base along with multiple identified exploration and development locations.

TransGlobe holds interests, and operates in six production sharing concessions (“PSCs”) in Egypt:

100% working interest in the West Gharib Concession
100% working interest in the North West Gharib Concession
100% working interest in the West Bakr Concession
100% working interest in the South Alamein Concession
100% working interest in the South Ghazalat Concession
100% working interest in the North West Sitra Concession

TransGlobe operates in the Harmattan area of Western Canada, with an average working interest of 88% focused on the Cardium and Ellerslie formations

Since inception, TransGlobe has recorded significant growth in production, reserves and funds flow, on both a gross and per share basis.  TransGlobe is focused on sustainable production growth through a balanced portfolio of exploration, development and reservoir optimization projects in addition to value enhancing acquisitions.   TransGlobe is committed to promoting good oilfield development and exploitation practices including the implementation of industry leading secondary and tertiary recovery methods as well as improvements to production and transportation infrastructure.

Charter of Board of Directors Governance


The Company is subject, among other laws and regulations, to instruments published by relevant Canadian securities regulators. One such instrument, NI 58-101, prescribes certain disclosure by the Company of its corporate governance practices and NP 58-201, provides non-prescriptive guidelines on corporate governance practices for reporting issuers such as the Company.

The Company has adopted corporate governance practices and procedures consistent with the relevant Canadian corporate governance standards appropriate for a publicly listed company. In particular, the Company has adopted a corporate code of conduct and mandate for its Board.  It has also established and properly constituted an Audit Committee, a Compensation Human Resources and Governance Committee, a Reserves, Health, Safety, Environment and Social Responsibility Committee (RHSES Committee) and a Disclosure and Compliance Committee to assist the Board in fulfilling its responsibilities for governing the Company.

With effect from Admission, the Board has adopted a new Share Dealing and Insider Trading Policy, described in further detail below, to which all Directors, officers and employees are subject. The policy is designed to ensure that it contains appropriate provisions for a company whose shares are admitted to trading on AIM. The Board also adopted an AIM Rules Compliance Code, effective from Admission.

The Company will continue to implement corporate governance practices and procedures consistent with those standards applied by public companies in Canada. These standards differ somewhat from those set out in the QCA Code. The Company complies with the QCA Code in all respects except as follows:

  • Except as otherwise disclosed in the Public Record from time to time, the Company does not explain the actions that the Company takes to understand why shareholders vote against a resolution by more than 20%. The Company will continue to engage with shareholders (where appropriate) if a significant number of shareholders have voted against a resolution and intends to provide an explanation of such actions.
  • The Company provides comprehensive orientation to all new directors, however, the Company does not disclose the time commitments required by each of its directors.
  • The Company has adopted a Charter of Board of Directors Governance, however, the Company does not have a corporate governance statement. With respect to corporate culture, the chair of the board of directors has consistently promoted a healthy work culture and continually assesses the culture of the Company with regular meetings of various staff members.
  • The Company has adopted a Charter of Board of Directors Governance, however, the Company does not disclose any plans for evolution of the governance framework.
  • The Company posts on its website most (but not all) of the information required by the QCA Code to be posted.  Such information is available on SEDAR or summarised in documents filed on SEDAR. Following the Admission Date, the Company intends to post or make available the required documents on its website.
  • The Company does not provide an overview of the results of its board performance evaluation.  While ongoing board performance evaluations are expected to continue, the Board does not intend to disclose the results of the evaluation.

Shareholder Rights

As the Company is incorporated in Canada, shareholders' rights may be different from the rights of shareholders in a UK incorporated company.

Takeover Code

The Company is not subject to takeover regulation in the UK and the City Code will not apply to the Company. However, Canadian laws applicable to the Company provide for early warning disclosure requirements and for takeover bid rules for bids made to security holders in various jurisdictions in Canada.

In Canada, securities laws are a matter of provincial/territorial jurisdiction and, as a result, bids are governed by applicable corporate and securities legislation in each province or territory. Accordingly, the Company is subject to the requirements of the Canada Business Corporations Act and applicable provincial and territorial securities legislation governing takeover bids.
