The Board of Interoil Exploration and Production ASA (IOX) has approved the implementation of an overhead cost reduction program that will achieve cost savings of approximately USD 10 million per year. The program will be implemented with immediate effect.
The cost reduction program will entail, inter alia, substantial cost reductions relating to personnel and office lease in Oslo and Switzerland and that the consultancy agreement with Eksportconsult AS will be terminated.
Interoil takes this opportunity to inform that Mr. Erik Sandøy has chosen to resign from his position as CFO. Erik Sandøy has been a vital contributor to the overhead cost reduction program and will continue to contribute in the implementing of the program until his resignation period expires on the 31 March 2013. The board would like to thank Mr. Sandøy for his valuable contributions to Interoil.
