Financial Update

Further to the announcement of 24 June 2016, Circle Oil plc (AIM:COP) the international oil and gas exploration, development and production company, is pleased to announce that International Finance Corporation ("IFC") has agreed to further extend the suspension of the December 2015 redetermination and any repayments due under its Reserve Based Lending ("RBL") facility until 5 August 2016. IFC has indicated its willingness to consider further waivers as may be required to continue the Strategic Review process based on circumstances applying at the time of any application.

As noted, most recently, in Circle's Preliminary Results announcement of 29 June 2016, the Company's financial position remains under significant pressure. US dollar payments from EGPC have continued to be unpredictable and to date there has not been a sustained improvement. As a result, the Company continues to explore options for additional funding during the course of July in order to be able to discharge its financial obligations from August 2016.

Further updates will provided to the market as the Strategic Review process continues.
