PRESS RELEASE 10 July 2019

WENTWORTH RESOURCES PLC
("Wentworth" or the "Company")
Dividend Policy
Wentworth (AIM: WEN), the AIM listed independent, East Africa-focused oil & gas company announces the implementation of a dividend policy.
The Company confirms a dividend policy to shareholders and plans to pay an ordinary dividend based on the Company's free cash flow generation, whilst ensuring an appropriate balance between investment in its business and operating within its debt and banking facilities.
It is expected that a maiden dividend will be declared with the interim results to 30 June 2019, expected to be released on 3 September 2019, and will be payable semi-annually going forward, split between the interim and final dividend (1/3 : 2/3). A final dividend for the year ended 31 December 2019 will be determined by the Board and is expected to be declared with the full year results, subject to shareholder approval.
Eskil Jersing, CEO, commented:
"The confidence we have in the long-term performance of our Mnazi Bay asset in Tanzania, with sustained revenues and regular payments since June 2017, supports the introduction of an ordinary dividend based on the Company's free cash flow generation, to return capital to shareholders. We continue to look at M&A led growth opportunities for the Company and the financial strength of our cash generative, rapidly deleveraging business ensures we can maintain an ordinary dividend going forward."
