MIDLAND, Texas, Feb. 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Bridge Hydrocarbons, Inc. ("Next Bridge," "our," "we," or the "company"), an oil and natural gas exploration and production company with interests in Texas and Oklahoma today provided the following statement:

There has been some confusion among the Public and Brokers as to the transfer process for Next Bridge Hydrocarbons (NBHC) shares. As such, Equiniti (formerly AST) has shared with us that it wishes to inform both domestic and international NBHC retail shareholders alike of the official workflow and protocol for transference of Next Bridge Common Stock shares into the Equiniti system. 

The transfer process is always initiated by shareholders themselves through the respective Brokerage firm holding their shares. At no time is it the responsibility of retail shareholders to "open" an Equiniti account for themselves. The Brokerage firm previously holding shares in "Street Name" for the holder will supply Equiniti with a Transfer of Ownership form indicating the holder's personal and financial information.  Equiniti will create an account for the shareholder from those instructions.  Shortly thereafter, Equiniti will mail shareholders an account statement with their account number, which can then be used to register for and enter our Shareholder Central online portal. The account statement will also contain Equiniti's contact information for shareholder's reference. From that point forward, shareholders may at any time access either the online portal or telephone system for future communications and information regarding their accounts.

In some instances, shareholders may receive a paper Stock Certificate from their Brokerage firm, if so arranged. In this case, shares will be recorded in "Certificate" form within Equiniti's system, but physically possessed by the holder.  If they so wish, shareholders can ship the stock certificate directly to Equiniti, along with instructions to convert the paper certificate into "Book Entry" shares to be held electronically.  Either way, the holder's share balance and account information will be securely recorded with the Equiniti system.
