1. Reasons of acquisition of shares
Following change in the management of LBE in May 2024, there has been a reconsideration of the Norwegian business policy, and as a result of discussions with LBE regarding the future management policy for LJN, JAPEX has decided to expand its Norwegian business by making LJN a subsidiary. JAPEX will pay US$2.5 million as consideration for the acquisition of LBE's shares in LJN. There will be no changes to LJN's employees or business structure as a result of this acquisition.

JAPEX places the acquisition of new oil and gas interests as one of the priority items in the "JAPEX Management Plan 2022-2030" formulated in March 2022, and has positioned the North Sea as one of its main target areas. Based on this policy, in July 2023, JAPEX acquired shares in LJN to lay the foundation for its business expansion in Norway. LJN is currently engaged in exploration and development in multiple license interests in the Norwegian North Sea. In addition, the acquisition of interests in production assets was completed in January 2024, and crude oil and natural gas production from the assets has begun.
