Chairman's Statement

On behalf of the Board of directors, it is my privilege to present the financial statements of UAE Oil Services Plc (the "Company" or "UAE Oil") for the period 3 January to 31 December 2018.

During the financial period, the Company reported a net loss of £779,732 (0.77.9p per share). The majority of this loss can be attributed to legal and professional fees. As at 31 December 2018, the Company had cash balance of £346,486.

The Company was incorporated on 3 January 2018 with the intention of making acquisitions in the oil and gas support services and infrastructure sector in the Middle East and North Africa, with an initial focus on the United Arab Emirates.

During the financial period, the Company was admitted to the official list by way of standard listing to trade on the London Stock Exchange.

On 17 August 2018, the Company announced a potential acquisition of the OBN Group and as a result suspended trading in its shares. As of 31 December 2018, the acquisition had not yet taken place but it is the intention of the board to complete this as soon as possible.

I look forward to the year ahead with gratitude to our shareholders, for their continued support.

Nils Trulsvik

Operational and Financial Review

During the financial period, the operational activities of the Company were to source suitable opportunities and, once opportunities have been identified, to carry out due diligence on the target companies following advice from its professional advisors.

The Directors believe there is sufficient financial resources in order to complete the acquisition of OBN Group. However, other opportunities will be considered if they meet the strategic objectives of the Company.
