(RBD) Reabold Resources Share Chat

    Reabold Resources is an investor in near-term, high growth upstream oil & gas projects where its injection of capital will facilitate near term activity.
    Each investment the Company makes must have low drilling risk and a clear exit strategy.

    Reabold invests in operating companies whose main value driver is the oil & gas asset of interest. Reabold can thereby run a low-cost, non-operator business model where the monetisation versus the entry price of the oil & gas projects it invests in will be the key determinant of value.

    The Company only invests in projects which meet its stringent requirements:

    Reabold exclusively invests in projects that are substantially de-risked from a technical perspective. Each project must have existing regional production and historic discovery wells nearby or on the asset. Each asset must also possess sufficient running room to turn initially small projects into substantial regional businesses.

    Each project must deliver extremely attractive returns at current and lower commodity price levels. Reabold seeks robust, fast cycle projects that require low capital expenditure and have limited geopolitical risks.

    Investment Returns:
    The returns provided by investments are key for Reabold. Before investing a project must demonstrate the possibility for a high return over a short time frame and the opportunity to scale up and increase project returns beyond our initial project period.

    In order to maximise the return profile, identifying the optimal time to exit a project is critical to Reabold’s strategy. Doing so effectively will allow the company to scale and attract more capital over time.

    Unlocking Value in the E&P cycle
    Reabold offers investors the opportunity to focus on the “Appraisal” part of the value chain of an upstream oil & gas project. This carries significantly lower risk than early stage exploration and a much greater uplift potential than development and production.

    Reabold Resources plc ("Reabold" or the "Company")

    Placing to raise £3.96 million

    Notice of General Meeting

    Update on Strategy

    Total voting rights

    Reabold, the AIM listed investment company operating in the natural resources sector, is pleased to announce a placing of 792,000,000 new ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each (the "Ordinary Shares") in the capital of the Company (the "Placing Shares") at a price of 0.5 pence per Placing Share (the "Placing Price"). The placing will raise, in aggregate, £3.96 million (before expenses) (the "Placing").

    The Company is very pleased with the demand of investors to participate in the Placing, which significantly exceeds the Directors' existing authorities to allot shares on a non-pre-emptive basis. To enable the Company to undertake a further placing of up to £1.5 million to meet this additional demand from investors, a general meeting ("GM") of the Company is to be held to obtain shareholder approval to renew the Directors' authorities to allot shares for cash on a non-pre-emptive basis. The notice of GM ("the Notice") will be sent to shareholders once finalised and will be available to download from the Company's website at www.reabold.com. A further announcement will be when the Notice is published.

    The investing policy of the Company remains to acquire direct and indirect interests in exploration and producing projects and assets in the natural resources sector, and consideration is currently given to investment opportunities anywhere in the world. However it is the Board's intention, under that policy, to concentrate on investments in European oil and gas projects.

    The net proceeds of the Placing will be used to make investments under this more focused strategy, in support of which the Company is proposing to appoint Sachin Oza and Stephen Williams, currently consultants to the Company, as Executive Directors in due course and subject to regulatory requirements. Sachin and Stephen ("the Proposed Directors") have, respectively, 15 years' and 14 years' experience in the energy sector and both have worked as investment analysts with M&G Investments. The Proposed Directors have identified and intend to invest in a number of projects that are in line with the proposed strategy set out above.

    Commenting on the Placing, Jeremy Edelman, Executive Chairman of Reabold said:

    "I am excited to announce the placing, and our strategic update. We look forward to being able to welcome Sachin and Stephen to the Board of Reabold in due course where they will bring very considerable technical expertise and experience of evaluating assets in our sector.

    We see great merit in a strategy of focusing on European oil and gas projects that are substantially de-risked from a technical perspective and yet still have the potential to deliver attractive returns at current commodity prices and are excited about the projects that have already been identified."

    Corallian Investment

    On 1 November 2017, the Company made its first investment under its focused investment strategy, entering share subscription agreements to invest a total of £1.5 million in Corallian, a private UK oil and gas appraisal and exploration company. Corallian has a portfolio of UK oil & gas licences, including the Colter appraisal project, that Corallian management believes has a high chance of success given the appraisal nature of the project together with industry comparative low drilling costs. An initial £0.5 million subscription in Corallian was completed on signing of a subscription agreement, with a further £1 million subscription completed in May 2018. Subsequently in February 2018, the Company announced that it was supporting a further capital raising by Corallian and would invest an additional £1.0 million, of which £0.5m was completed in February 2018 and the balance of £0.5 million, at Reabold's election, was completed in April 2018. Completion of the above subscriptions has resulted in Reabold investing a total of £2.5 million for a 32.9% interest in Corallian.

    Danube Investment

    On 4 December 2017, the Company made its second investment, entering into an agreement with Danube, then a wholly owned subsidiary of ASX listed ADX Energy Ltd (ASX:ADX) to invest a total of £1.5 million for a 29% interest in Danube. Danube is a newly-formed UK private oil and gas company, which holds a 50% interest in the high impact Parta licence ("Parta"), onshore Romania, and a 100% interest in a low-risk appraisal campaign within Parta, comprising of two wells planned to test 49.9 Billion Cubic Feet prospective and contingent resources. The first tranche of the Company's investment in Danube of £0.375 million ("Tranche 1") was completed in March 2018, with the second tranche of £1.1 million ("Tranche 2") to be completed upon submission of an Authorisation for Expenditure for the first appraisal well, which was submitted on 17 September 2018, activity on which is anticipated to commence in Q4 2018.

    Gaelic Investment

    On 14 June 2018, the Company was pleased to announce the significant conditional acquisition of 100% of the issued share capital of Gaelic for the issue of 420 million new ordinary shares in Reabold ("the Consideration Shares"), representing £3.1 million at the closing price of 0.725p per share on AIM on 12 June 2018. The issue of the Consideration Shares was subject to the approval of the shareholder of the Company, which was received at a General Meeting of the Company on 29 June 2018. The acquisition of Gaelic duly completed on 4 July 2018.

    Gaelic provides Reabold with options to participate in multiple near-term, high-impact oil and gas leases in California, United States ("the Leases").Gaelic, through its wholly owned US subsidiary, has the right to earn-in to 50% of the Leases by drilling up to five wells by the end of 2019. Reabold expects three of these wells to be drilled before the end of 2018. In a success case, these wells will be put onto production, providing cashflow to support further drilling activity. The five-well drilling programme is expected to cost Reabold up to approximately US$7.0 million in total.

    The Leases are operated by Integrity Management Solutions, a California operating company that will direct operational decisions pertaining to the licenses.

    Reabold funded the successful four-well workover programme on the idle wells on the Monroe Swell licence, earning a 50% interest in these wells that are now in production. Reabold also funded the Venturini Ginnochio 3 well ("VG-3"), completed for production, on the West Brentwood license earning a 50% interest in the licence. This successful well is being put on production.


    In further support of the Company's investing strategy and executive team, the Company was pleased to complete, in March 2018, a significant fund raising of 1,291,750,000 new ordinary shares at a price of 0.6 pence per share, raising £7.8 million (before expenses) to support the Company's investment policy.

    Reabold Resources Plc

    ("Reabold" or "the Company")

    Rig Contract Signed for Wick and Colter

    Reabold, the oil and gas investing company, is pleased to announce that Corallian Energy Limited ("Corallian" or "the Operator"), in which Reabold has a 32.9% interest, has signed a contract with Ensco UK Limited for the Ensco-72 jack-up rig to drill the Wick and Colter drilling campaigns. The two well drilling campaign is expected to begin in Q4 2018, subject to the receipt of necessary regulatory approvals and consents for both wells.

    The Wick prospect, in which Corallian has a 40% interest, is estimated by Corallian to contain gross mean prospective resources of around 26 million barrels of recoverable oil equivalent.

    Colter, in which Corallian has a 49% interest, lies 10km off the coast of Dorset, adjacent to Wytch Farm. Corallian estimates gross mean prospective resources of 23 million barrels of recoverable oil equivalent.

    Sachin Oza, co-CEO of Reabold, commented:

    "Given our unique exposure to both high-impact opportunities at Colter and Wick, today's news is highly exciting for Reabold and its shareholders. If successful, both prospects independently offer attractive economics, low development costs and fast payback, which could prove to be transformational for the Company.

    As many of Reabold's investments are now entering operational periods, we look forward to continuing to provide further updates on each as progress continues over the next few months."
