Extension of time to hold Annual General Meeting granted by ASIC

PERTH, Western Australia, April 23, 2014 /CNW/ - Aurora Oil & Gas (ASX:AUT, TSX:AEF) (Aurora) is pleased to announce that the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has granted an extension of the period of time in which Aurora must hold its annual general meeting (AGM) for its financial year ended 31 December 2013.  Pursuant to the relief granted by ASIC, the latest date on which Aurora may hold its AGM has been extended from 30 May 2014 to 31 July 2014.

An extension of time was sought to enable Aurora's AGM to be held once the outcome of the proposed scheme of arrangement under which Baytex Energy Corp. proposes to acquire, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Baytex Energy Australia Pty Ltd, all of the shares in Aurora (Scheme) is known. This relief was disclosed as having been granted on an "in principle" basis in section 8.14 of the Scheme Booklet dated 14 April 2014.

Aurora is now applying to the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) for relief from similar Canadian regulatory requirements requiring Aurora to hold its AGM by 30 June 2014. An update will be provided after the TSX has considered the extension request.
