("Frontera" or "the Company")

Half-yearly results for the six months ended 30 June 2018

 Frontera Resources Corporation (AIM: FRR), the European focused oil and gas exploration and production company, today announces its financial results for the six months ended 30 June 2018.

-  Revenues from crude oil and gas sales totaled $1.8 million.

-  Net loss of $7.0 million, or $0.0005 per share on a fully diluted basis. 

 

Zaza Mamulaishvili, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"Significant reduction of our debt in 2017 and other cost saving measures on the operations side in the first half of 2018 helped the Company to reduce year on year loss by US $4.4 million. The Company is continuing the execution of its cost optimisation programmes and is further advancing the efforts to clean the balance sheet to strengthen its financial health to be better positioned for implementation of current and future operational plans."

1.   Nature of Operations

Frontera Resources Corporation, a Houston, Texas based Cayman Islands exempted company, and its subsidiaries (the "Company") are engaged in the development of oil and gas projects in emerging marketplaces. The Company was founded in 1996 and is headquartered in Houston, Texas. The Company emphasizes development of reserves in known hydrocarbon-bearing basins, and is attracted to projects that have significant exploration opportunities.  Since 2002, the Company has focused substantially all of its efforts on the exploration and development of oilfields in the Black Sea area, namely within Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.

Georgia

In June 1997, the Company entered into a 25-year production sharing agreement with the Ministry of Fuel and Energy of Georgia and State Company Georgian Oil ("Georgian Oil"), which gives the Company the exclusive right to explore, develop and produce crude oil and natural gas ("Petroleum") in a 5500 square kilometer area in eastern Georgia known as Block 12, hereafter referred to as the "Block 12 PSA".  The Block 12 PSA can be extended if commercial production remains viable upon its expiration in June 2022.

Under the terms of the Block 12 PSA, the Company is entitled to conduct exploration and production activities and is entitled to recover its cumulative costs and expenses from the Petroleum produced from Block 12.  Following recovery of cumulative costs and expenses from Block 12 production, the remaining Petroleum sales, referred to as "Profit Oil" or "Profit Natural Gas", are allocated between Georgian Oil and Frontera in the proportion of 51% and 49%, respectively.

Under the terms of the Block 12 PSA, Frontera is exempt from all taxes imposed by the government of Georgia, and any taxes imposed on the Company are paid by Georgian Oil on behalf of the Company from Georgian Oil's 51% share of Profit Oil.  Taxes are defined by the Block 12 PSA to mean all levies, duties, payments, fees, taxes or contributions payable to or imposed by any government agency, subdivision, municipal or local authorities within the government of Georgia.

Moldova

On January 2, 2017, the Company signed a Concession Agreement with the Government of Moldova (the "Concession Agreement") regarding the exploration, production and development of hydrocarbon resources in Moldova. Pursuant to the terms of the Concession Agreement, the Company has the exclusive right to explore for, produce and develop hydrocarbon resources within an area comprising approximately 3 million acres situated in the southern portion of the country. The overall term of the Concession Agreement is 50 years from the date of its execution, including an initial exploration phase of up to ten years.

The Company has incurred net losses and negative cash flows from operations in most fiscal periods since inception. Management plans to continue to reduce costs and raise additional financing in order to continue to facilitate the Company's 2018 operating plan. As of June 30, 2018 the Company does not have any debt that is scheduled to mature in the next twelve months.

In the past several years there has been volatility and disruption in the global commodity, capital and credit markets. While these market conditions persist, the Company's ability to access the capital and credit markets may be adversely affected.  Notwithstanding management's plan to manage costs and raise additional financing, the Company's viability is dependent upon producing oil and gas in sufficient quantities and marketing such oil and gas at sufficient prices to provide positive operating cash flow to the Company.

The Company is responsible for providing funding for the development of Block 12 in Georgia and will require additional funding in order to obtain certain levels of production and generate sufficient cash flows to meet future capital and operating spending requirements. This is dependent upon, among other factors, achieving significant increases in production, production of oil and gas at costs that provide acceptable margins, reasonable levels of taxation from local authorities, and the ability to market the oil and gas produced at or near world prices.

In December 2016 the convertible notes were restructured and note holders exchanged $30.1 million of notes due in 2016 into new secured notes due August 2020 (the "2020 Notes"). The 2020 notes are not convertible into ordinary shares of the Company, and bear an interest rate of 10 percent if paid in cash or 12 percent if paid in-kind with additional notes at the Company's election.

In 2017, the shareholders approved the increase of the Company's authorized share capital to 17,250,000,000 shares.

3.       Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

The condensed consolidated balance sheet of the Company at December 31, 2017 was derived from the Company's audited consolidated financial statements as of that date, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP"). The condensed consolidated balance sheets at June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2017, the condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive loss for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, the condensed consolidated statement of changes in stockholders' deficit for the six months ended June 30, 2018, and the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 were prepared by the Company in United States dollars ("USD").

In the opinion of Company management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to state fairly the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows were recorded.  The results of operations for the six month period ended June 30, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for a full year or of future operations.

Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements presented in accordance with US GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company's consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2017.

For a description of the Company's accounting policies, refer to Note 3 of the Company's 2017 consolidated financial statements.

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent asset and liabilities at the date of the financial statements

 

Frontera Resources Corporation

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements June 30, 2018 (Unaudited)

 

and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. 

Estimates of oil and natural gas reserves and their values, future production rates and future costs and expenses are inherently uncertain for numerous reasons, including many factors beyond the Company's control. Reservoir engineering is a subjective process of estimating underground accumulations of oil and natural gas that cannot be measured in an exact manner.  The accuracy of any reserve estimate is a function of the quality of data available and of engineering and geological interpretation and judgment. In addition, estimates of reserves may be revised based on actual production, results of subsequent exploitation and development activities, prevailing commodity prices, operating costs and other factors. These revisions may be material and could materially affect the Company's future depletion, depreciation and amortization expenses.

The Company's revenue, profitability, and future growth are substantially dependent upon the prevailing and future prices for oil and natural gas, which are dependent upon numerous factors beyond its control such as economic, regulatory developments and competition from other energy sources. The energy markets have historically been volatile and there can be no assurance that oil and natural gas prices will not be subject to wide fluctuations in the future.  A substantial or extended decline in oil and natural gas prices could have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations, cash flows and quantities of oil and natural gas reserves that may be economically produced.

Impairment

 

Under the full cost method of accounting, the net book value of natural gas and crude oil properties may not exceed a calculated "ceiling." The ceiling limitation is the discounted estimated future net revenue from proved natural gas and crude oil properties plus the cost of properties not subject to amortization. In calculating future net revenues, costs used are those as of the end of the appropriate period. The prices used are the unweighted average first-day-of-the-month commodity prices for the prior twelve months. These prices are not changed except where different prices are fixed and determinable from applicable contracts for the remaining term of those contracts.

 

The net book value is compared to the ceiling limitation on both a quarterly and annual basis. Any excess of the net book value is written off as impairment expense. Impairment expense recorded in one period may not be reversed in a subsequent period even though higher natural gas and crude oil prices may have increased the ceiling limitation in the subsequent period. There was no impairment charge recorded for the six months ended June 30, 2018 or 2017.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company's financial instruments consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and unconvertible notes payable. The fair value of cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable are estimated to approximate the carrying value due to the liquid nature of these instruments.  As such, the measurement was categorized as a Level 1 measurement per the fair value hierarchy. The fair value of the notes payable was determined based upon discount rates which approximate variable interest rates for borrowings of a similar nature.

The authoritative guidance related to fair value defines a hierarchy of inputs to valuation techniques based upon whether those inputs reflect assumptions other market participants would use based upon market data obtained from independent sources (observable inputs).  Refer to the fair value of debt disclosed in Note 4. The Company does not have any assets or liabilities classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

          Related Party Notes Payable

On January 11, 2011, a revolving credit facility ("Credit Facility") was put in place by and between the Company, Steve C. Nicandros, a Director of the Company, and Zaza Mamulaishvili, then a member of the Company's senior management team and now a Director of the Company (together, the "Lenders") in the amount of $2 million. The $2 million borrowing limit pursuant to the Credit Facility was removed on October 30, 2012. Accordingly, during 2017, the Company entered into a series of further notes payable governed by this Credit Facility with the Lenders in the aggregate amount of $0.2 million. These notes had a one-year term and bore interest of 15%.

 

In May 2017, the Company approved the conversion of the related party notes payable into equity. Directors of the Company, Mr. Steve Nicandros (via an entity controlled by him) and Mr. Zaza Mamulaishvili, entered into note exchange agreements to eliminate approximately $26 million related to loans by the executives' advances to the Company. These loans were previously provided to the Company to support the Company's on-going operational and working capital requirements. The conversion was agreed at a fixed conversion price of one pence per share. The conversion was completed on June 30, 2017. Pursuant to the terms of the note exchange, there is a twelve month lock-in period on the sale of the new ordinary shares that Mr. Nicandros and Mr. Mamulaishvili received at as a result of the conversion.

2020 Secured Unconvertible Notes Payable

On August 2, 2011, note holders exchanged $18.2 million of notes that originated in 2007 and 2008 into new notes issued under the 2016 Note Purchase Agreement due August 2016 (the "2016 Notes"). The 2016 Notes accrued interest at the rate of 10% per annum, matured five years from the date of issuance and were convertible into shares, at the option of the holder, at a conversion rate of $0.25 per share. During 2016 the Company elected to pay the quarterly interest payments in kind and issued approximately $1.8 million in additional convertible notes in accordance with the terms of the note purchase agreements.

As of June 30, 2018, the fair value of 2020 Notes was approximately $29.4 million.

Other Notes Payable

In June 2011 the Company entered into a standby equity distribution agreement with YA providing for up to approximately $35.0 million of additional equity investment, through the issue of the new shares in the Company. As of June 30, 2018 approximately $19.0 million of commitment amount was still available for drawdown. The SEDA is effective through December 31, 2020. 

In June 2017, the Company reached an agreement with YA whereby the entire amount of debt, provided to the Company by YA under the SEDA and SEDA-Backed Loan Agreement in the amount of approximately $6.2 million was eliminated through conversion into equity through the issuance of 7,200 Series A shares in the Company with par value of $0.00004 and with liquidation amount of $1,000 per share. The Series A shares were convertible into a maximum of 1,300,000,000 ordinary shares of the Company using the conversion price which, in respect of each conversion, meant the lesser of (i) the Fixed Conversion Price, or (ii) the Variable Conversion Price, where "Fixed Conversion Price" meant (a) up to and including December 31, 2017, 1.0 pence per share, and (b) after December 31, 2017, the lower of 1.0 pence per share or the closing bid price per share of the ordinary shares of the Company as of December 31, 2017, and "Variable Conversion Price" means 90% of the lowest daily volume weighted average price of the ordinary shares of the Company (as reported by Bloomberg) over the five consecutive trading days expiring on the trading day immediately prior to the date of delivery of the relevant conversion notice.

Pursuant to the terms of the agreement with YA, there is a limitation on number of ordinary shares that YA was entitled to convert each month whereby the value of such number of shares could not exceed $400,000 each month. Additionally, there is a limitation of a maximum of 1,300,000,000 ordinary shares that YA was entitled to convert over the twelve month period following the issuance of Series A shares. Consequent to the conversion, the entire amount of debt owed to YA was eliminated from the Company's balance sheet.

In 2017, 2,800 Series A preferred shares were converted by YA resulting in the issuance of 1,037,289,968 ordinary shares. During first six months of 2018, 1,509 Series A preferred shares were converted by YA resulting in the issuance of 262,697,886 ordinary shares. The last such conversion occurred on April 4, 2018, as announced on the same date, following which YA was in possession of the remaining 2,891 Series A shares with a redemption value of $2,891,000 which were redeemable on June 16, 2018. On June 6, 2018 the Company and YA agreed that the redemption of the remaining 2,891 Series A shares will take place over a twelve month period, on a monthly basis, for which the Company will be making cash redemption payments to YA of $265,000 per month. In June 2018, YA redeemed 241 Series A shares for cash. Once fully redeemed, the Series A shares will be cancelled. The Company has the right to convert redeemable Series A shares into ordinary shares, at its option. The Company has the right to pay down in cash the entire redemption amount for the outstanding number of Series A shares at any point. As consideration for this agreement, the Company Issued YA 10,000,000 new ordinary shares.

8.         Subsequent Events

In September 2018, it came to the Company's attention that on August 28, 29, 30, 2018, and September 3, 2018, YA II PN, Ltd. arbitrarily sold 82,077,412 ordinary shares in the Company that have not been authorised, issued and admitted to trading by the Company. On August 28, 2018 and September 3, 2018, the Company received conversion notices from YA II PN, Ltd. in respect of 241 of its Series A Preferred Convertible Shares each in lieu of respective cash payments for the months of August and September. Those conversion notices stipulated that the number of Ordinary Shares to be issued following conversion were 82,077,412 and 93,784,120 Ordinary Shares respectively. The Company immediately commenced an investigation into this matter and on September 12, 2018 the Company's legal advisers informed YA II PN, Ltd. that (i) the Company had serious concerns as to the validity of the conversion notices and the calculations contained therein and (ii) the Company does not consider that it would be appropriate to action any conversions in respect of the conversion notices pending further investigation. In response, later on the same day, the Company received a purported notice of default from YA II PN, Ltd. in respect of the conversion notices and demanded the redemption in cash of the outstanding 2,650 Preferred Shares at a liquidation amount of $2,650,000. The Company vigorously disputes the validity of both the conversion notices and the purported default notice, and is continuing to investigate YA II PN Ltd.'s actions in that regard, particularly the above sales and YA II PN, Ltd.'s any other possible unauthorized dealings in shares.

 

Events occurring after June 30, 2018 were evaluated through September 26, 2018, the date these financial statements were available to be issued, to ensure that any subsequent events meeting the criteria for recognition or disclosure were included.
