Highlights for the three months ended June 30, 2018 include the following:

 

a)  The Group generated revenue from oil and natural gas production of CAD$1,693k (2017 - CAD$1,540) and CAD$188k from electricity production (2017 - CAD$127k) during the three months ended June 30, 2018, representing a 12.8% increase in revenue.

b)   The Group sold 23,495 (2017 - 23,390) barrels of oil from its assets in Azerbaijan.

c)   The Group sold 1,337 (2017 - 4,790) MCF of natural gas from its Italian production assets.

e)   The Group sold 2,684k (2017 - 2,522k) MWh of electricity from its Italian assets.  

f)    On April 12, 2018, the Company announced the termination of the exclusivity agreement (the "Agreement") for the acquisition of various production and exploration licenses located in a Central Asian country.

The Agreement was terminated by the Company because it did not receive the required financial information from the vendor for the due diligence process to be successfully completed.

g)  On April 18, 2018 the Company announced the extension of the maturity date of the Series A Bond (the "Bond Extension"). The Bond Extension extends the maturity date for the Series A Bond from May 4, 2018 by six months to November 4, 2018. For the duration of the Bond Extension the interest rate of the Series A Bond has been increased to fifteen per cent per annum (15% p.a.). No further material terms will be amended in the Series A Bond, or in any other document related to the 2015 Private Placement.

Furthermore, in connection with the work undertaken on the Bond Extension, Optiva Securities Limited, the Company's joint broker, was paid a fee consisting of (i) £10,125 in cash (CAD$18,141 at an exchange rate of 1.79167); and (ii) 93,750 common share purchase warrants ("Warrants"). The Warrants entitle the holder to acquire one common share per warrant in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of £0.12 (approximately CAD$0.215) until the expiration date in May 2021.

h)  On May 2, 2018, Zenith fully repaid a loan for the total amount of €401k (CAD$637k) that had been used to acquire the electricity generation equipment installed in the Company's Italian concession of Torrente Cigno. 

 

i)    On May 24, 2018 the Company signed a two-year non-convertible loan facility, (the "Facility"), for a total amount of up to US$2,000,000.

The Facility will be used to provide additional funding for the Group's operations when required. It will be drawn down in tranches, with each tranche being payable four months from the drawdown date. It can be settled at any time without penalty and has no warrants attached.

j)   On June 21, 2018, the Company raised gross proceeds amounting to £2,166,898 through a Placing, Subscription and Primary Bid Offer.

As a result of the Placing, Subscription and Primary Bid Offer the Company issued a total of 54,172,451 new common shares, (the "New Common Shares").

The Company also paid finder's fees for CAD$187k and issued 1,280,000 warrants with an exercise price of CAD$0.07 per warrant that expire three years from the date of granting.

The enlarged issued share capital following Admission is 214,094,217 common shares. The New Common Shares comprise approximately 25.3 per cent of the enlarged issued share capital on Admission.
