Electricity prices during the month of April 2022 averaged approximately EUR 236 per MWh, resulting in net revenues of approximately EUR 230,000. Zenith's current net production costs remain fixed at approximately EUR 35,000 per month.

Non-convertible Loan Agreement for EUR 1.3 million

The Loan has a duration of ten months, attracts an interest of 5% per annum and includes normal warranties and default clauses.

In connection with the Loan Agreement, the Company has issued the following share purchase warrants (the "Warrants"):

-- 85 million Warrants to acquire one common share for each Warrant at an exercise price of NOK 0.20 (equivalent to approximately GBP0.017).

Sale of A-100 Workover Rig

The Company has agreed to dispose of the A-100 workover rig (the "Rig") that it had previously acquired in Azerbaijan during 2018 by way of its fully owned subsidiary, Zena Drilling Limited.

The expected lack of spare parts and technical support for the Rig, a rig type widely used in the oil industry of the Russian Federation and post-Soviet Republics, as well as the estimated high transportation costs of the Rig from Azerbaijan to the Company's oil and gas portfolio in Africa, were the reasons for the sale.

Zenith confirms that it has not recorded a loss, on an amortised basis, in respect of the consideration originally paid to the manufacturer in 2018 for the purchase of the Rig.
