GXG Markets – Update
U.S. Oil & Gas Plc (GXG London: USOP, OTC New York: USOPY), the oil and gas exploration company with exploration assets in Nevada, makes the following statement:
GXG Markets have announced that a Due Diligence Report on US Oil and Gas has been requested.
The Board of US Oil and Gas unreservedly welcomes this exercise and hopes that the process is expedited in the interests of the Company and shareholders.
The Company believes that the GXG investigation was prompted by allegations made to GXG, including anonymous and internet allegations, and expects that the Due Diligence Report will effectively and finally put an end to a sustained campaign of vilification and defamation.
Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM)
The Board judges that until the GXG trading suspension is resolved, it would be premature to call an EGM immediately as previously envisaged. However, in due course the Board will call a shareholder meeting, subject to the relevant processes and procedures.
THE DIRECTORS OF THE COMPANY ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CONTENTS OF THIS
Neither this announcement nor the information contained herein constitutes an offer or solicitation by U.S. Oil and Gas plc for the purchase or sale of any securities nor does it constitute a solicitation to any person in any jurisdiction where solicitation would be unlawful.

About American Depositary Receipts (ADRs)
An ADR is a negotiable certificate that represents ownership in securities of a non U.S. company. ADRs are issued by a sponsoring U.S. bank and denominated in U.S. dollars. An ADR represents a specified number of shares (or one share) in
a foreign stock that is traded on a U.S. exchange.
ADRs allow foreign companies shares to be traded in a similar manner to shares in U.S. companies on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the American Stock Exchange (AMEX), Nasdaq and the over-the-counter (OTC) market. ADRs enable U.S.
citizens to acquire shares in a foreign company without the need for cross border or cross currency transactions. Any dividends and capital gains are in U.S. dollars.
