CALGARY, Alberta, May 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Peyto Exploration & Development Corp. (TSX: PEY) (“Peyto” or the “Company“) today announces that it intends to adjourn the annual general meeting of shareholders (the “Meeting“) currently scheduled for May 17, 2023 at 3:00 p.m. (Calgary time), and to reconvene the Meeting on June 13, 2023 at 3:00 p.m. (Calgary time) at +15 Level, 600 – 3rd Avenue S.W., Calgary, Alberta T2P 0G5 in order to give shareholders additional time to cast their votes at the Meeting.

Peyto is encouraged by the support of its shareholders and is committed to continuing its progress to increasing gender diversity on the board.

In addition, the board is committed to increasing the percentage of female directors on the board to 30% for the 2024 annual meeting of Peyto shareholders. The directors of Peyto are also committed to continuing their active engagement and contributions to the Company and have all committed to attend substantially all meetings of the board and applicable committees and in any case not less than 75% of all meetings as well as providing increased transparency in future meeting materials regarding these contributions.
