Pre-AGM Financial and Operational Update

Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR) a UK-based exploration and production company primarily focused on the hydrocarbon-producing basins of onshore UK, is pleased to provide the following Financial and Operational Update ahead of its Annual General Meeting. The meeting will be held at the offices of Norton Rose Fulbright, 3 More London Riverside, London, SE1 2AQ at 11.30 am today.Revenues

  • Unaudited revenue for the three-month period from August to October 2021 was £1.085 million (2020: £0.173 million)
  • Revenue was primarily from Wressle and Ceres, and was despite Wressle only recommencing flow on 19 August and the Ceres field being shut-in for annual maintenance for 20 days during September
  • This is expected to translate into a step change in revenues and cash flow for the Company for the current financial year, with full-year revenue from the Company’s 2020/21 financial year (£1.09 million) matched after the first quarter of the current year (August to October)

Wressle PEDL180/182 (Egdon 30%):

  • The Wressle-1 well has continued to exceed our expectations since the successful completion of the proppant squeeze and subsequent coiled tubing operations on the 19 August 2021.
  • Works have been completed to upgrade the gas incineration system
  • Despite being flowed under a highly restricted choke (20/64 inch), whilst upgrade works are ongoing, Wressle produced at an average rate of 666 barrels of oil per day (bopd) (c. 200 bopd net to Egdon) plus 368,000 cubic feet of gas over the last 7 days period (727 barrels of oil equivalent per day)
  • No formation water has been produced to date
  • A secondary separator system has been designed and manufactured and is expected to be installed before year end to optimise gas/oil separation
  • Early 2022 will see completion of testing of the full potential of the well
  • Decisions will be made early in 2022 on the plateau production rate, to match with the longer-term operational objectives and prudent reservoir management of this important asset
  • Downhole pressure data has been acquired and is currently being interpreted to further inform these decisions
  • The focus in 2022 will move to progressing the optimal method of gas monetisation and finalising plans for the development of other hydrocarbon bearing sequences to access the identified contingent resources, with particular focus on the Penistone Flags reservoir

Ceres P1241 (Egdon 10%):

  • The Ceres Gas Field is undergoing a late-life renaissance for the Company
  • Gas realisations averaged 195p/therm in October and November 2021 (an equivalent of $157/boe)
  • Given the low operating costs, strong gas market fundamentals and forward curve we believe the field could remain profitable for some years to come

Biscathorpe PEDL253 (Egdon 35.8%):

  • On 1 November 2021, the planning application for a side-track drilling operation, associated testing and long-term oil production at the Biscathorpe site, was refused by Lincolnshire County Council (LCC), despite being recommended for approval by the Council's planning officers
  • The formal decision notice was issued on 6 December and we are currently reviewing in detail the reasons for refusal with our planning and legal advisors and considering our options which is likely to lead to an appeal

North Kelsey PEDL241 (Egdon 50%):

  • Planning applications were submitted to LCC in early December to extend the existing planning consents by twelve months and amend the proposed bottom hole target location for the planned North Kelsey well
  • The applications have now been validated and the consultation period has begun
  • Subject to receipt of planning consent this well could be drilled later in 2022

Keddington PEDL005R (Egdon 45%):

  • A detailed sub-surface review of the Keddington oil fieldand the surrounding licence area has highlighted an opportunity to increase production via a new development side-track well for which planning consent is already in place 
  • Reservoir engineering work has been completed by ERCE and has confirmed a target area in the south-east of the field which would add 85,000 to 120,000 barrels of recoverable oil
  • Well specific reservoir modelling and detailed well planning will be completed in the coming period with a view to being in a position to drill the side-track well during 2022
  • Additional near-field exploration opportunities have been identified at Keddington South, (gross Mean Prospective Resources of 635,000 barrels of oil) and the Louth Prospect (gross Mean Prospective Resources of 600,000 barrels of oil) which could be accessed from the existing production site in due course

Waddock Cross PL090 (Egdon 55%)

  • Reservoir modelling has shown that a new horizontal well on the field could yield commercial oil production (500-800 bopd)
  • Given the large in-place oil volume (Mean oil in place of c. 57 million barrels of oil) Waddock Cross has been high graded as planning consent and facilities are in place to test this significant opportunity
  • Well design and surface facilities design work has been completed
  • Further detailed design and costings are in preparation to support a potential JV investment decision during 2022 to drill a side-track well and reinstate production

Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon, commented:“Strong production performance and high oil and gas prices are combining to provide the Company with material operating cashflows which strengthens the balance sheet and will support our planned 2022 investment programme.”

Preliminary Results for the Year Ended 31 July 2021

Preliminary Results for the Year Ended 31 July 2021Egdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR), a UK-based exploration and production company primarily focused on the hydrocarbon-producing basins of onshore UK, today announces its preliminary results for the year ended 31 July 2021.Operational and Corporate Highlights

  • Completion of site reconfiguration, facilities installation and well recompletion at the Wressle oil field, with test production ongoing since late January 2021 and the proppant squeeze operation successfully completed in July 2021
  • Production during the period was 90 barrels of oil equivalent per day (“boepd”) (2020: 145 boepd) against guidance of 110-130 boepd due to delays in undertaking the proppant squeeze at Wressle
  • Planning application submitted for a side-track drilling operation, associated testing and long-term oil production at the Biscathorpe-2 well site 
  • Entered a memorandum of understanding with Creative Geothermal Solutions Limited (“CGS”) in respect of geothermal projects with an initial focus on Egdon’s Dukes Wood-1 and Kirklington-3Z wells
  • Completion of the farm-outs for the Resolution and Endeavour gas discoveries (P1929 and P2304) to Shell Oil U.K. Limited
  • Continued refocussing and streamlining of the licence portfolio

Financial Performance

  • Gross oil and gas revenues during the year increased by 13.4% to £1.09 million (2020: £0.96 million).
  • Loss for the year ended 31 July 2021 of £1.68 million after write-downs, pre-licence costs and impairments of £0.48 million (2020: loss of £4.75 million after write-downs, pre-licence costs and impairments of £3.03 million)
  • Basic loss per share of 0.51p (2020: 1.53p)
  • Cash at bank £1.96 million as at 31 July 2021 (2020: £0.85 million)
  • Net assets as at 31 July 2021 of £27.42 million (2020: £26.67 million)
  • Refinancing of the business via a £1 million loan facility, the issue of £1.05 million convertible loan notes following shareholder approval at a General Meeting held on 22 January 2021, and an equity placing of £1.44 million gross in July 2021

Subsequent Events

  • At Wressle, a coiled tubing operation, a follow-up to the proppant squeeze operation, was completed in August 2021, with test production recommencing and flow rates exceeding pre-operational expectations. During September, we reported facility constrained instantaneous flow rates of up to 884 barrels of oil per day (“bopd”) along with 480,000 cubic feet of gas (c. 80 barrels of oil equivalent per day).  Wressle is already having a positive impact on the Group’s revenues.
  • In September 2021 we were advised by Shell that the planned 3-D seismic survey across UK offshore licences P1929 and P2304 (Resolution and Endeavour gas discoveries respectively (Egdon 30%)) would not proceed on the originally expected timeframe of February 2022. Subject to regulatory and Shell approval, we now anticipate that this could go ahead in February 2023.
  • On 1 November 2021 planning permission was refused for the Biscathorpe project. The Company will await the formal decision notice before taking advice and considering our options including an appeal.

Outlook

  • Initial production guidance for 2021-22 is 240 boepd, with Wressle being the significant contributor.
  • With the material cash flow expected from Wressle and Ceres in a significantly improved commodity price environment, and the breadth and quality of the opportunities within the portfolio, we look forward with confidence.

AudiocastAn audiocast of the Results Presentation will be available to view via the following link from 09.30:http://webcasting.buchanan.uk.com/broadcast/61767494df7b150b81e93816Commenting on the Results Egdon’s Chairman, Philip Stephens said; “During what has been a challenging period as we continue to navigate the COVID pandemic and its macro-economic impacts, I can report that we have continued to make progress against our revised strategy and the business is in a significantly stronger place than a year ago. We have strengthened our financial position and are now operating in a higher commodity price environment as worldwide demand recovers.  Operationally the highlight is undoubtedly Wressle, where production has significantly exceeded our expectations and the material revenues from this asset will transform the cash flow for the business in the current period and beyond, providing optionality for near-term growth opportunities in line with our stated strategy.”View or download Egdon Resources 2021 Preliminary Results

Operational Update

Operational UpdateEgdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR, "Egdon"), an established exploration and production company focused on the hydrocarbon-producing basins of the onshore UK, provides an update on operations across its portfolio.Key Highlights:

  • Initial production from Wressle-1 surpassing expectation at 884 barrels of oil per day (“bopd”) and 480,000 cubic feet of gas per day on a restricted choke with no formation water seen.
  • Plans to reduce production constraints and define plateau rate at Wressle-1.
  • Planning application for the side-track drilling, testing and production at Biscathorpe to be heard in November.
  • Shell U.K. Limited advises that the 3D seismic survey over the Resolution and Endeavour gas discoveries has been delayed beyond February 2022.
  • Detailed well design, facilities specification, and commercial modelling nearing completion for the phased redevelopment of the shut-in Waddock Cross oil field with a Final Investment Decision expected to be made by the end of 2021, which could lead to further drilling activity during 2022.
  • Detailed reservoir engineering work underway at Keddington to support target selection for a side-track development well, which could be drilled in 2022 and access gross Mean Contingent Resources of 567,000 barrels of oil which remain to be produced.
  • A programme to plug and abandon the existing Dukes Wood-1 oil well and recomplete this for geothermal heat production has been developed and will shortly be submitted to the HSE.

Wressle PEDL180 & PEDL182 (Egdon 30%):The Wressle-1 well has continued to exceed production expectations since the successful completion of the coiled tubing operations on the 19 August 2021. To date, instantaneous flow rates in excess of 884 barrels of oil per day (“bopd”) along with 480,000 cubic feet of gas (c. 80 barrels of oil equivalent per day) have been achieved from the Ashover Grit on a significantly restricted choke setting (30.5/64ths) and with a high flowing wellhead pressure. Thus far, no formation water has been seen as the well continues to clean up.Even with the excellent flow rates seen to date, the full flow potential of the well remains to be fully tested due to constraints being experienced with the gas handling equipment.The forward plan is to remove these constraints to production and complete the testing of the well’s potential before defining a plateau production rate matching the well behaviour to the installed facilities, long term operational objectives and prudent reservoir management.We can also advise that we have now received the revision to the Environmental Permit, enabling the installation of a combustion plant to facilitate gas to electric generation and a new potential revenue stream.Since being returned to production on 19 August the well has generated revenues in excess of £300,000 for Egdon.Biscathorpe PEDL253 (Egdon 35.8%):We now expect the planning application for the side-track drilling, testing and production at Biscathorpe to be heard at a meeting of Lincolnshire County Council’s planning committee during November.Subject to planning the Biscathorpe side-track will target the Dinantian Carbonate, where a 68 metre oil column was discovered in Biscathorpe-2, with gross Mean Prospective Resources of 2.55 million barrels of oil (mmbo), and the Basal Westphalian Sandstone, where gross Mean Prospective Resources of 3.95 mmbo have been estimated by Egdon.P1929 & P2304 Resolution and Endeavour (Egdon 30%):Egdon has been advised by licence operator, Shell U.K. Limited, that the 3D seismic survey planned for February 2022, over the Resolution and Endeavour gas discoveries, will not proceed on the original expected timeline. Shell will consult with the OGA to discuss the delay to the survey and we will provide a further update once these discussions have progressed.A Competent Person’s Report (Schlumberger Oilfield UK PLC) has reported gross Mean Contingent Resources of 231 billion cubic feet (“bcf”) of gas attributable to the Resolution discovery with Egdon estimating that the Endeavour discovery contains gross Mean Contingent Resources of 18 bcf of gas. Waddock Cross PL090 (Egdon 55%):Third party work is currently ongoing to finalise the well design, facilities specification, and commercial modelling for the phased redevelopment of the shut-in Waddock Cross oil field in Wessex Basin licence PL090. Independent reservoir modelling has shown that a new horizontal well on the field could yield commercial oil production (500-800 bopd). Given the large in- place oil volume (Mean oil in place of c. 57 million barrels of oil) this asset has been high graded by the Company as planning consent and facilities are in place to test this significant opportunity.A final investment decision is expected to be made by the end of 2021 which could lead to further drilling activity during 2022.Keddington PEDL005R (Egdon 45%):As previously reported, a detailed sub-surface review of the Keddington oil field and the surrounding licence area has highlighted that gross Mean Contingent Resources of 567,000 barrels of oil remain to be produced. This presents an opportunity to increase production via a development well for which planning is already in place.Detailed reservoir engineering work is currently being undertaken by ERCE to support the final target selection for a side-track development well, which could be drilled in 2022.In addition, a near-field exploration opportunity exists at Keddington South, (gross Mean Prospective Resources of 635,000 barrels of oil) and the Louth Prospect (gross Mean Prospective Resources of 600,000 barrels of oil).Geothermal:A programme to plug and abandon the existing Dukes Wood-1 oil well and recomplete this for geothermal heat production has been developed for Egdon by Creative Geothermal Solutions Limited and will shortly be submitted to the HSE. It is anticipated that subject to regulatory approval, this work will commence during Q1 2022.Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon, commented:"The Wressle well test operations continue to exceed our expectations with instantaneous rates of over 950 barrels of oil equivalent per day achieved so far.  The well has already begun to yield a material revenue stream which will transform the financial position of Egdon in the coming period.  This production rate means that Wressle is currently the second biggest field in terms of daily production in the onshore UK after Wytch Farm, and we are confident that the well has more to give in the coming period.We await confirmation from Shell regarding next steps for the Resolution 3D seismic, and we remain optimistic about the long-term potential of this long-burner project for Egdon.  Elsewhere in our portfolio, we are making good progress with several nearer-term projects capable of adding further production, revenues and value to the business.  We are pleased to see activity gaining momentum across the portfolio and look forward to an active year ahead. I am also pleased with progress in our nascent geothermal business with plans being advanced for repurposing of the Dukes Wood-1 well and wider opportunities being considered.”

Wressle Achieves 500 bopd

Egdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR, "Egdon"), an established exploration and production company focused on the hydrocarbon-producing basins of the onshore UK, is pleased to provide an update on operations at its Wressle Oil Field Development (“Wressle”) located in North Lincolnshire, covered by Licences PEDL180 and PEDL182 and where the Company holds a 30% operated interest.Egdon is pleased to advise that the coiled tubing operation has been completed safely and successfully and the Ashover Grit reservoir has been returned to flow, under extended well testing operations. The well flow is continuing to clean-up and has not yet reached its full potential. The measured flow rates have exceeded 500 barrels of oil per day under a restricted choke setting, which was the forecast rate following the proppant squeeze operation.We will provide a further update once stabilised flow rates are established in the coming weeks.Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon, commented:"I am delighted to advise that the proppant squeeze operation has been successful in enabling the Wressle well to deliver the target production rate of 500 barrels of oil per day. Oil production will be optimised whilst the Ashover Grit reservoir continues to clean-up.  With this additional 150 barrels of oil per day net to Egdon and the current strong oil price, Wressle will have a transformational impact on Egdon’s near-term cash flow.Considerable upside remains in the additional reservoirs at Wressle and in adjacent prospects and we expect Wressle to be an important asset for Egdon for a number of years to come.I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of Egdon’s contractors who have contributed so effectively to delivering this milestone event for the Wressle joint venture.”

Wressle Operational Update

Egdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR, "Egdon"), an established exploration and production company focused on the hydrocarbon-producing basins of the onshore UK, is pleased to provide an update on operations at its Wressle Oil Field Development (“Wressle”) located in North Lincolnshire, covered by Licences PEDL180 and PEDL182 and where the Company holds a 30% operated interest.Egdon is pleased to advise that the proppant squeeze operation on the Ashover Grit reservoir interval in the Wressle-1 well has been completed safely and successfully. A total of 146 cubic metres of gelled fluid with 17.3 tonnes of ceramic proppant were injected into the Ashover Grit formation in line with the authorised programme. The injection operations lasted a total of only 1 hour and 30 minutes over a two-day period.There were no health, safety, environmental or security issues experienced during the operations; and as predicted, real time monitoring confirmed there was no induced seismicity and that the noise levels were well within the permitted limits. The operation was subject to a pre-operational inspection by the Health and Safety Executive and active monitoring by the Environment Agency. Ground and surface water monitoring has continued in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Permit.All equipment and personnel associated with the operation have now demobilised from site.The Wressle well will now be subject to a coiled tubing operation to fully clean out the production tubing prior to bringing the well back into production through the site’s permanent production facilities. Based on the implemented programme, pre-operational simulation modelling concluded that the proppant squeeze operation would result in constrained flow rates of 500 barrels of oil per day (gross). Once the well is brought back into production, we will provide a further update to report on the stabilised flow rates achieved from the proppant squeeze.Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon, commented:"I am pleased to report on the safe and successful completion of the proppant squeeze operations at Wressle.  I would like to thank our team of contractors and staff for the highly professional way in which the operations were undertaken with no adverse impact on the environment or the amenity of our neighbours.I now look forward to the well being placed back on production and reporting on the positive impact of the operation on future oil production from the site in the coming weeks.”

Biscathorpe Carbon Intensity Study and Planning Update

Egdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR, "Egdon"), an established UK-based exploration and production company focused on the hydrocarbon-producing basins of the UK, is pleased to advise the positive results of a Carbon Intensity study carried out on the Biscathorpe project covered by Licence PEDL253 where the Company holds a 35.80% operated interest.The study was conducted on behalf of the PEDL253 Joint Venture by Gaffney, Cline & Associates Limited (“GaffneyCline”), an international energy consultancy. GaffneyCline’s study delivered the following conclusions:

  • The Biscathorpe project as currently envisaged has an AA rating for Carbon Intensity for its potential long-term production of oil using GaffneyCline’s own rating system
  • The Carbon Intensity for the Biscathorpe project is significantly lower than the current UK average and compared with other onshore analogues
  • Once in production, GaffneyCline estimates that the Biscathorpe project will have a Carbon Intensity of just 3.06 grams of Carbon Dioxide equivalent per mega joule (gCO2Eq/MJ)
  • Potential exists to improve the Carbon Intensity to 1.49gCO2Eq/MJ through adoption of gas to grid optimisation

The Carbon Intensity of the Biscathorpe project was estimated by GaffneyCline as a conceptual field development using the Oil Production Greenhouse Gas Emissions Estimator (OPGEE) developed at Stanford University. This was supplemented by reference to GaffneyCline’s proprietary Global field database together with Biscathorpe specific field development assumptions. The results of the study were benchmarked against other development analogues in GaffneyCline’s proprietary database. The study also provided recommendations that could have a further impact on reducing emissions sources (Figure 1).Table 1: Biscathorpe Project Carbon Intensity Rating (Source: GaffneyCline, July 2021)Carbon Intensity Range (gCO2 Eq/MJ)CurrentPotentialAA≤53.061.49A5 - 7B7 - 11C11 - 20D20 - 30E30 - 50F50 - 70GOver 70Egdon can also advise that additional documentation was submitted to Lincolnshire County Council in early July in response to a Regulation 25 notice arising from the initial consultation on the planning application for the Biscathorpe project. This information will now be subject to a period of consultation before the planning application goes before the Planning Committee, currently anticipated to be in September/October 2021.Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon, commented:"The results of GaffneyCline’s independent modelling provides strong evidence that a future development at Biscathorpe could achieve a low carbon intensity rating (AA).  The Climate Change Committee has acknowledged that the UK will still be using fossil fuels up to and beyond the UK’s Net Zero carbon emissions target of 2050. It follows that the production of fossil fuels should be from that which generates the lowest emissions footprint, which, like Biscathorpe, are indigenous UK sources.I am also pleased to confirm the submission of additional information in support of our planning application for the Biscathorpe project. This is expected to be considered by the Planning Committee later in 2021. Biscathorpe represents a material and financially robust opportunity to secure an indigenous oil resource which would generate local and regional economic benefits and have environmental benefits through its lower carbon footprint when compared to imported oil.”

Wressle Update

Egdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR, "Egdon"), an established UK-based exploration and production company focused on onshore exploration and production in the hydrocarbon-producing basins of the UK, wishes to provide an update on the planned proppant squeeze operation at its Wressle Oil Field Development (“Wressle”) located in North Lincolnshire, covered by Licences PEDL180 and PEDL182 where the Company holds a 30% operated interestEgdon has been advised by its contractor, Schlumberger Oilfield UK Plc, that the proppant squeeze operations at Wressle have been pushed back by two to four weeks. The revised date is due to the contractor’s equipment being held on a job over-run in continental Europe. This is compounded by tighter import legislation and visa requirements which are beyond Egdon, and the contractor’s control. The contractor has provided assurance to Egdon that its amended timeline will be adhered to. Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon, commented:"Whilst delays are a function of current business dislocations, we do not regard this as a material event in terms of ongoing progress at Wressle. We are confident that operations will soon be underway, and I look forward to updating the market in due course”.

Wressle Update - Oil Storage Consent

Egdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR, “Egdon”) is pleased to advise that it has received consent from North Lincolnshire Council for the storage of crude oil under the Planning (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 1992 at its Wressle Oil Field Development (“Wressle”) located in North Lincolnshire, covered by Licences PEDL180 and PEDL182 where the Company holds a 30% operated interest.This consent allows full use of the installed oil storage capacity at the site of approximately 2000 barrels and will enable the full production to be realised following from the proppant squeeze, which is expected to increase overall production to 500 barrels of oil per day (150 barrels net to Egdon). Commenting on the news Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon Resources said;“We are pleased to have received this final consent, which will allow the full production potential of Wressle to be realised following the proppant squeeze operation which is planned to be undertaken during June 2021.”

Wressle Development Update

Egdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR, “Egdon”) is pleased to advise that it has received all necessary consents for the commencement of the proppant squeeze operation at the Wressle Oil Field Development (“Wressle”) located in North Lincolnshire Licences PEDL180 and PEDL182 where the Company holds a 30% operated interest.The proppant squeeze operation is expected to optimise oil production from the Ashover Grit reservoir, one of the three productive reservoirs tested, to a constrained gross rate of 500 barrels of oil per day (150 bopd net to Egdon).The operation is expected to be completed and optimum oil production achieved during June 2021.The Wressle-1 well has been on 24 hour test production since late January with produced oil transported by road tanker to the Phillips 66 Humber refinery and sold under Egdon’s existing oil sales contract.Production rates have continued to increase and have exceeded our expectations with high quality free flowing oil being produced and no water present. All data confirms the independent prediction that over 500 bopd will be achievable following the proppant squeeze. The well will continue operating on test production until the proppant squeeze operation is undertaken.Commenting on the news Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon Resources said;“We are delighted to have received all the required regulatory consents for the proppant squeeze operation at Wressle. When successfully completed, this will realise the full potential from the Ashover Grit reservoir and is expected to increase Egdon’s net production to 150 bopd at a time of increasingly strong oil prices leading to a step change in our cash flow.”

Resolution 3D Survey Update

Egdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR, “Egdon”) provides an update on the timing of the 3D seismic survey over the Resolution gas discovery in offshore licences P1929 and P2304.Shell Oil U.K. Limited (“Shell”), the operator of offshore licences P1929 and P2304, has advised Egdon that the marine 3D seismic survey, planned over the Resolution and Endeavour gas discoveries is now anticipated to be acquired in February 2022 rather than Q1 2021. This follows the results of a revised environmental impact assessment and extensive stakeholder engagement in respect of the planned survey. This work concluded that the commercial impact on local fishing businesses, along with potential impacts on marine mammalian movements, breeding season for sea birds and tourism, meant that the optimum time window to successfully acquire seismic data in 2021 was during February, not March/April as originally anticipated. Unfortunately, it was not possible to finalise all of the required agreements in respect of managing the fishing vessels operating in the survey area within the timeframe necessary to enable the survey to take place in February 2021.As such, and subject to the OGA consenting to an amendment to the licence obligations, it is now intended to undertake the survey in February 2022, to enable all agreements with commercial and other stakeholders to be finalised well in advance of the planned survey.

Subscription by Petrichor Partners LP (“Petrichor Partners”) and Jalapeño Corporation (“Jalapeño”) for £1,051,035 Convertible Loan Notes

Egdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR, "Egdon") is pleased to announce that it has entered into subscription agreements with Petrichor Partners and Jalapeño (the “Subscription Agreements”), subject to certain terms and conditions, to raise gross proceeds of approximately £1.05 million through the issue of convertible loan notes (the “Convertible Loan Notes”) in order to fund ongoing exploration and development projects.The capitalised terms in this announcement shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the definitions section contained in Appendix 2 of this announcement.Petrichor Partners and Jalapeño may, at any time when any of the Convertible Loan Notes are outstanding, convert such outstanding amount into Ordinary Shares in the Company at a price of 1.55 pence per Ordinary Share (the “Conversion Price”) following the issue of the Convertible Loan Notes. Subject to Petrichor Partners and Jalapeño not exercising their option to convert the amount outstanding into Conversion Shares during the 12 months following the issue of the Convertible Loan Notes, they will be redeemed by the Company 12 months following their issue.The general partner of Petrichor Partners is HEYCO International Inc (“HINT”), a subsidiary of HEYCO Energy Group Inc (“HEYCO”). HEYCO, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Petrichor Holdings Coöperatief U.A. (“Petrichor”), together with its Connected Persons and other persons acting in concert with it and as described more fully in Part III of the Circular, is currently interested in 111,643,046 Ordinary Shares, representing 34.01 per cent. of the Existing Ordinary Shares.Based on the assumptions set out in Appendix 3 of this announcement, the Directors expect that the conversion of the Convertible Loan Notes (including the capitalisation of any interest which will accrue on the Convertible Loan Notes) would result in the issue to Petrichor Partners of a maximum of 69,684,386 Ordinary Shares and the issue to Jalapeño of a maximum of 3,549,020 Ordinary Shares (together, the “Conversion Shares”), increasing the total interest of the Concert Party to a maximum of 184,876,452 Ordinary Shares, representing 46.04 per cent. of the Company’s Enlarged Ordinary Share Capital (assuming no options issued by the Company or other securities convertible or exchangeable into Ordinary Shares are exercised other than those held by members of the Concert Party and that the Company does not issue any other Ordinary Shares), and the Concert Party would therefore be interested in Ordinary Shares carrying 30 per cent. or more of the Company’s voting share capital but not hold Ordinary Shares carrying more than 50 per cent. of more of such voting rights.As Petrichor is currently interested in more than 10 per cent. of the issued ordinary share capital of the Company, the subscription for the Convertible Loan Notes is a related party transaction for the purposes of Rule 13 of the AIM Rules for Companies. For the purposes of the AIM Rules for Companies, the Directors of the Company, having consulted with the Company’s nominated adviser, WH Ireland, consider that the terms of the transaction are fair and reasonable so far as its Shareholders are concerned.The Takeover Panel (the “Panel”) has agreed, however, to waive the obligation for the Concert Party to make a general offer ("Rule 9Waiver") that would otherwise arise as a result of the issue of the Convertible Loan Note Shares to the Concert Party, subject to the approval, on a poll, of the Independent Shareholders (the “Whitewash Resolution”). Accordingly, the Whitewash Resolution is being proposed at the General Meeting and will be taken on a poll at the General Meeting, notice of which is set out in the Circular to be distributed to Shareholders on or around the date of this Announcement. The General Meeting is to be held at the offices of Egdon Resources plc at The Wheat House, 98 High Street, Odiham, Hampshire RG29 1LP at 10.00 a.m. on 22 January 2021.The Company notes the guidance issued by the UK government restricting social gatherings in view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that, if such guidance remains in place on the date of the General Meeting, as seems likely, shareholders will be prohibited from attending the General Meeting. Given the current guidance the Company requests that shareholders do not attend the General Meeting but instead appoint the chairman of the General Meeting as a proxy to ensure their vote is recognised and provide voting instructions in advance of the General Meeting. Other named proxies will not be allowed to attend the General Meeting and their votes will not be countedMark Abbott, Managing Director, commented: “This is a major endorsement from HEYCO and strong confirmation of the belief of HEYCO and its management in the longer-term prospects for Egdon. The funds raised by the issue of the Convertible Loan Notes will significantly strengthen the Company’s financial position and allow it, together with existing cash, to fund ongoing exploration and development projects such as the development of the Wressle oil field, planning for the Biscathorpe-2 side-track well and preparation for the acquisition of 3D seismic over the Resolution Prospect and for additional working capital to maintain and develop the assets and opportunity base of the business.”View or Download Full AnnouncementView Documentation
