HAMILTON, Bermuda, June 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TransAtlantic Petroleum Ltd. (TSX:TNP) (NYSE American:TAT) (the “Company” or “TransAtlantic”) today announced the final results of the voting at its 2018 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (“Annual Meeting”), which was held on June 19, 2018.

Annual Meeting Final Voting Results

The Company held its Annual Meeting on June 19, 2018 to (i) elect six directors to the board of directors, each for a one-year term (“Proposal 1”), and (ii) appoint PMB Helin Donovan, LLP (“PMB”) to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018 (“Proposal 2”). For more information about the foregoing proposals, see the Company’s definitive proxy statement, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 30, 2018 (the “Proxy Statement”), and the Company’s definitive additional materials, filed with the SEC on June 13, 2018 (the “Additional Proxy Materials”).

The table below show the final results of the voting at the Annual Meeting:

As described in the Additional Proxy Materials, on June 12, 2018, PMB notified the Company that, because of reasons unrelated to the Company, PMB decided that it will no longer provide audit services to public companies, including the Company, and will no longer seek re-appointment as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2018. As a result of this notification, Proposal 2 became moot. The audit committee of the board of directors (the “Audit Committee”) is currently in the process of selecting a replacement independent registered accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2018. The Audit Committee is working to appoint a new independent registered accounting firm as soon as possible.
