Tullow Uganda Limited Receives Judgment in its Favour in the Proceedings against Heritage Oil and Gas Ltd. and Heritage Oil Plc

Tullow Oil plc announced that Tullow Uganda Limited has received judgment in its favour in the proceedings against Heritage Oil and Gas Ltd. and Heritage Oil Plc in the High Court in London (Case No: 2011 Folio 471). In 2010, Tullow agreed to acquire Heritage's Ugandan assets pursuant to a Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA). The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) designated Tullow Uganda Limited as agent in relation to this transaction which required Tullow to pay, on Heritage's behalf, USD 313 million to the URA. This sum was the outstanding Capital Gains Tax that the Ugandan Government claimed from Heritage in respect of the transaction. Tullow sought an indemnity from Heritage under the SPA in respect of this USD 313 million payment to the URA. In his judgment, Mr. Justice Burton found in favour of Tullow's indemnity claim for USD 313 million in its entirety and also dismissed Heritage's counterclaim. A further hearing will be scheduled in due course to address matters arising from the judgment such as the amount of interest Heritage owes Tullow on the USD 313 million and Tullow's submissions in respect of payment of its costs by Heritage.
