The new Investing Policy was also approved and accordingly the Company’s investment strategy is as follows:
“The investment objective of the Company is to provide Shareholders with an attractive total return achieved primarily through capital appreciation. Further, the Directors intend to take an active approach to investments made by the Company and to adhere to the following guidelines:
a) Geographic focus: While the Company’s principal focus is on projects or businesses with part or whole connection or relationship to Europe the Company will also consider projects or businesses in the Asia Pacific Region.
b) Sector focus: The Company intends to invest in, or acquire, companies or projects within the oil and gas sector with the potential for growth if the Board considers that there is an opportunity to generate an attractive return for Shareholders. The Directors believe that opportunities exist to create value for Shareholders through a properly executed, acquisition led strategy in the oil and gas sector.
c) Types of investment and control of investments: In selecting investment opportunities in line with the Investing Policy, the Board will focus on companies, projects, businesses, joint ventures or production agreements that are available at attractive valuations and hold opportunities to unlock embedded value. Where appropriate, the Board may seek to invest in businesses where they can add their expertise to the management of the business and to utilise their significant industry relationships and access to finance. The ability to work alongside a strong management team to maximise returns through revenue growth will be something the Board will focus upon initially. The Company’s interest in a proposed investment or acquisition (as the case may be) may range from a minority position to full ownership. Additionally, the proposed investments:
i. may be in either quoted or unquoted companies;
ii. may be made in companies, partnerships, equity, debt or other loan structures, joint ventures or direct or indirect interests in assets or projects; and
iii. may be made by direct investment or acquisition.
d) Investment number and size: Taking into account the Company’s available resources, there is no limit on the number or size of investments which the Company may make. Accordingly, the Company’s financial resources may be invested in a number of propositions or in just one investment, which may be deemed to be a Reverse Takeover under the NEX Rules or the rules of another stock exchange as the case may be. Therefore, there shall be no restriction on the amount of such available financial resources the Company may invest in any one investment. Any transaction constituting a Reverse Takeover under the NEX Rules will also require Shareholder approval and re-admission to the NEX Growth Market of the enlarged entity under NEX Rule 60.”
