Reabold Resources to acquire E&P business Simwell Resources

(Sharecast News) - Oil and gas investor Reabold Resources has conditionally agreed to acquire exploration and production outfit Simwell Resources for "a low acquisition cost".
Reabold will make a total initial consideration, plus the repayment of all outstanding creditors/liabilities, of £1.0m for Simwell in order to "substantially increase" its footprint in the emerging Zechstein trend, complementing its onshore position in PEDL183, including the West Newton project.

The AIM-listed group added that £361,840 of the acquisition will be satisfied by the issue of 134.10m new ordinary shares in the company at a price of 0.27p per share, while £305,157 will be payable to certain creditors via the issue of 113.02m new ordinary shares, with a further £333,001 will be paid to creditors in cash from existing resources.

A contingent deferred consideration of £150,000 may also be made payable to the sellers and will again be satisfied by the issue of new ordinary shares.

Co-chief executive Stephen Williams said: "We are delighted to be able to acquire this set of highly prospective assets at a compelling valuation. This extends our significant position in the emerging Zechstein play into the offshore, and at an exciting time for the play ahead of the drilling of Pensacola."
