Rusty Hutson Jr., CEO commented:
"Together, we have grown Diversified tremendously since our humble beginnings in 2001 that included a small group of wells. Our London IPO and the support of so many loyal stakeholders has afforded us the ability to quickly build upon my original vision of creating a different kind of energy company with a real focus on tangible returns for shareholders. Today, we have a Premium Listing and are one of the leading independent producers on the LSE. Our new name better reflects who we are and our longstanding business and growth strategy underpinned by clean-burning natural gas. Diversified is an important provider of energy to meet US-domestic demand, and we believe natural gas will play a vital role supporting a transition to increased renewable energy in the US and around the world. While our name is changing, our core values remain steadfast - operational excellence, environmental stewardship, positive socioeconomic impact and stakeholder value. We look forward to continuing the great work we've done over the past 20 years as we continue building Diversified together."
