TransGlobe Energy Corporation Announces Postponement of Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/14 -- TransGlobe Energy Corporation ("TransGlobe" or the "Company") (TSX: TGL)(NASDAQ: TGA) announces that the Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders, which was scheduled for May 8th, 2014, has been rescheduled to June 10th, 2014. Further details regarding the meeting of shareholders will be contained in the Information Circular that will be mailed to shareholders of the Company in due course.

Advance Notice By-Law

TransGlobe's Board of Directors has adopted By-Law No. 2, which requires advance notice to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election as a director of the Company are made by shareholders. The terms of the by-law are consistent with those advance notice by-laws adopted by a majority of the S&P/TSX Composite Index companies in the past year, which have been endorsed by proxy advisory firms and overwhelmingly approved by their shareholders. The by-law is currently in effect.

The by-law fixes a deadline by which shareholders must submit a notice of director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders where directors are to be elected and sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice for it to be valid. The by-law facilitates an orderly and efficient annual or special meeting process and it ensures that all shareholders receive adequate notice of director nominations with sufficient information with respect to all nominees. This allows the Company and its shareholders to evaluate the proposed nominees' qualifications and suitability as directors, which further allows shareholders to cast an informed vote for the election of directors.

At the next meeting of shareholders, shareholders will be asked to confirm and ratify the by-law. If the by-law is not confirmed at the shareholders' meeting by an ordinary resolution of the shareholders, it will be of no further force and terminate. A copy of the by-law has been filed and is available under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.

TransGlobe Energy Corporation is a Calgary-based, growth-oriented oil and gas exploration and development company focused on the Middle East/North Africa region with production operations in the Arab Republic of Egypt and the Republic of Yemen. TransGlobe's common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol TGL and on the NASDAQ Exchange under the symbol TGA. TransGlobe's convertible debentures trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol TGL.DB.
