The Company experienced a decrease in operating netbacks during Q4 2021 as compared to Q3 2021, decreasing to $27.35/boe in Q4 2021 from $30.73/boe in Q3 2021. The decrease in operating netbacks is attributable to lower realized price for crude sales associated with the Company’s share in its Ombu/Capella block in Q4 2021.
The Company incurred capital expenditures during Q4 2021 of $2 million mainly related to its West Pepper well. At the end of Q4 2021, the Company had a positive working capital position of $8 million, and a cash position of $10.9 million.
On October 25, 2021, the Company raised approximately £8.8 million (C$15 million), through a placing and subscription for new common shares with new investors, Canacol Energy Ltd., and executive management (together, the “Fundraising”) and published an AIM Admission Document in connection with the admission of the enlarged share capital of the Company to trading on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange plc. The Fundraising consisted of the placement and subscription of 140,949,545 new common shares at an issue price of £0.0625 (C$0.106125) per new common share. The Company’s executive management invested approximately C$1.41 million and Canacol participated in the subscription to hold 19.9% of the enlarged share capital. Investors received one warrant for every two new common shares, exercisable at C$0.15282 per new common share for 24 months from the AIM admission date (October 25, 2021). The net proceeds of the Fundraising, together with the Company’s existing funds, are expected to be used to drill two wells at Rio Cravo Este, and will also be deployed in drilling the Carrizales Norte-1 exploration well.
On 24 November 2021, the Company also announced that it had raised C$395,375 on a non-brokered private placement basis through the issuance of 3,765,476 new common shares of no-par value (“Common Shares”) on the same terms as the Fundraising . Investors received one warrant for every two Common Shares, exercisable for 24 months from the closing date.
