Cathal Friel, Non-Executive Chairman of Fastnet, commented:

"The Board is grateful for the support of the overwhelming majority of Shareholders, many of whom have suffered from the malaise in the oil industry as have the Board as significant Shareholders. The Board will work tirelessly to source Shareholder accretive deals for the Company in the healthcare sector and looks forward to updating shareholders on progress in the months ahead.

In terms of the Company's Celtic Sea Assets and 3D seismic survey data the Board will continue to examine all options to secure value for Shareholders. Options under consideration include spinning the Celtic Sea Assets into a stand-alone entity. This would enable any value creating opportunities from Celtic Sea Assets to benefit our existing Shareholders who would become shareholders in the newco."
