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.

 

On 24 September 2018, the Company announced the completion of Tranche 2, and that ADX and Reabold had agreed that the deadline of Reabold's option to invest, at Reabold's election, a further amount of US$0.5 million in Danube, with the associated requirement that ADX will either invest directly or source investment from a third party of US$0.5 million on the same terms as Reabold's Tranche 1 and Tranche 2 investments, had been extended to 31 October 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.

 

Placements

 

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.

 

On 5 September 2018, the Company announced a placing of a total of 568,908,823 new ordinary shares in the Company, raising gross proceeds of £4.8 million at a price of 0.85p per share, with the net proceeds to be deployed in the continued execution of the Company's strategy across additional high-impact projects.

 

Financial Review

 

The loss of the Company for the 6 months ended 30 June 2018 was £746,000 (2017: loss of £70,000), including share based payments expense of £322,000. The net assets as at 30 June 2018 were £12,752,000 (2017: £804,000).

Outlook

 

We are highly encouraged by the success we have had so far in the implementation of our strategy to invest in low-risk, high impact upstream oil and gas projects. The portfolio, which now contains the Danube and Corallian appraisal campaigns drilling in 2018, and Gaelic, which has delivered early success in the workover programme along with VG-3, the discovery well, being completed for production, demonstrates our commitment, as a Board, to our strategy and ability to execute value-creating investments for our shareholders. This portfolio, together with a number of other projects currently under review, means Reabold shareholders can look forward to an exciting 2018 and beyond.

 

The Board looks forward to reporting further in due course.

NOTES TO THE INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE PERIOD ENDED 30 JUNE 2018

 

1.    Basis of preparation

 

These interim financial statements have been prepared using policies based on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS and IFRIC interpretations) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB") as adopted for use in the EU. They do not include all disclosures that would otherwise be required in a complete set of financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the 2017 Annual Report. The financial information for the half years ended 30 June 2018 and 30 June 2017 does not constitute statutory accounts within the meaning of Section 434(3) of the Companies Act 2006 and is unaudited.

 

The annual financial statements of Reabold Resources Plc are prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union. The comparative financial information for the year ended 31 December 2017 included within this report does not constitute the full statutory accounts for that period. The statutory Annual Report and Financial Statements for 2017 have been filed with the Registrar of Companies. The Independent Auditors' Report on that Annual Report and Financial Statement for 2017 was unqualified, did not draw attention to any matters by way of emphasis, and did not contain a statement under 498(2) or 498(3) of the Companies Act 2006.

 

After making enquiries, the directors have a reasonable expectation that the Company has adequate resources and support from key shareholders to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the half-yearly financial statements.

 

The same accounting policies, presentation and methods of computation are followed in these condensed financial statements as were applied in the Company's latest annual audited financial statements, with additional information in respect of significant accounting policies disclosed below.

 

The IASB has issued a number of IFRS and IFRIC amendments or interpretations since the last annual report was published. It is not expected that any of these will have a material impact on the Company.

On 1 November 2017, the Company announced it had entered into a conditional share subscription agreement to subscribe for 740,741 ordinary shares in the issued share capital of Corallian ("Tranche B Shares") at £1.35 per share for an aggregate subscription amount of £1.0 million, with the subscription conditional upon the joint venture partners in licence P1918 in respect of the Colter appraisal project approving an authorisation for expenditure for the drilling of the Colter well prior to 30 April 2018, failing which Reabold's obligation to subscribe for the Tranche B Shares would terminate. As at 30 April 2018, no such authorisation for expenditure for the drilling of the Colter well had been approved. Subsequently, on 25 May 2018, Reabold advised Corallian that it had waived the condition for the Tranche B Shares and proceeded to complete the Tranche B subscription on 28 May 2018 in the amount of £1.0 million.

 

On 1 March 2018, the Company announced that it had signed two further subscription agreements with Corallian. The first agreement was an unconditional subscription for 333,333 new Corallian shares at £1.50 per share for an investment of £0.5 million, which was completed in February 2018.  The second agreement gave Reabold the option to subscribe for an additional 333,333 new Corallian shares at a price of £1.50 per share for an investment of £0.5 million at any point up to 6 April 2018, which was completed prior to the expiry date.

 

Taking the full Corallian fundraisings into account, Reabold has invested a total of £2.5 million for a current interest in 32.9% of Corallian's issued share capital.

 

The Company has assessed the fair value of its investment in Corallian as at 30 June 2018 as £1.50 per share, for a total value of £2,667,000, resulting in a revaluation increase of £167,000 during the period. 

 

On 4 December 2017, the Company announced that it had signed an agreement with Danube, a newly incorporated subsidiary of ASX listed ADX Energy Ltd, to invest a total of £1.5 million for a 29% interest in Danube. The investment was conditional on completion of a transaction between Danube and ADX Energy Ltd, by 28 February 2018, which would result in Danube holding a 50% interest in the Parta licence in Romania, and a 100% interest in a low-risk appraisal campaign within Parta. The investment comprised an initial 375,940 new shares to be issued upon completion of the transaction at £1.00 per share. This will be followed by a further 1,127,819 new shares to be issued upon submission of an Authorisation for Expenditure ("AFE") for the first appraisal well at £1.00 per share. On 19 February 2018, the Company agreed to extend the date for completion of the transaction to 31 March 2018, with completion taking place on 23 March 2018 of the initial investment by the Company of £375,940. The AFE was submitted on 17 September 2018.
