Kibo Energy PLC, the multi-asset, Africa focused, energy company, announces a corporate update in response to the COVID-19 pandemic (‘the pandemic’).
Kibo places the safety and wellbeing of its employees and contractors as the highest priority. Accordingly, in response to the outbreak of the pandemic, which it has been monitoring closely, a business continuity programme has been put in place to protect employees while ensuring the safe operation of the Company. This has resulted in all non-essential travel being cancelled and all employees at head office being asked to work from home.
Given the number of jurisdictions in which Kibo operates that have each approached the pandemic with different strategies, the Company continues, where possible, to work with all stakeholders across its portfolio remotely and to keep operations going as normal as possible. There is currently no material change to the Company’s strategy and development plan nor is any such change anticipated at this stage.
The situation in respect of COVID-19 is an evolving one and the Board will review the impact on business and provide further updates in due course including in respect of its forward guidance.
Louis Coetzee, CEO of Kibo Energy, commented, “We remain cognisant of COVID-19’s growing impact on the global economy and accordingly have focused on protecting our own employees. As each jurisdiction in which we work has approached the virus in different ways, and the situation continues to change on a daily basis, at this stage we are unable to provide specific updates on each project but we are able to confirm that at the moment all Kibo’s projects remain fundamentally sound and healthy. We will of course continue to monitor the COVID-19 impact and provide further updates as soon as we are in a position to do so.”
