The boards of Ophir and Medco have agreed a recommended acquisition of Ophir by Medco at £0.55/sh, valuing Ophir at c. £361 mm. The acquisition is conditional on amongst other things, a courtsanctioned scheme of arrangement which needs 75% shareholder approval. The Ophir board intends to recommend unanimously the transaction to Ophir Shareholders. The company expects the scheme will become effective in 1H19.
At the request of Ophir, the Takeover Panel has extended the deadline for Medco to either announce a firm intention offer for Ophir or announce that it does not intend to make an offer, until 5.00 pm, 31 January 2019.
FY18 production was 29,700 boe/d (GMP FEe: 25 mboe/d), 8% ahead of guidance with Madura, Sampang and Block 12W contributing 18,000 boe/d (GMP FEe: 15 mboe/d).

Oil posted the longest stretch of weekly advances since 2015 as OPEC+ producers only modestly supply the market and as US crude supplies shrink.
Crude futures rose 1.5% Friday in New York, up for a ninth straight week. President Joe Biden said Thursday night that Americans should expect high gasoline prices to continue into next year because of supply being withheld by OPEC and other foreign oil producers. Stockpiles at the biggest US storage hub are draining to levels last seen when crude pr

Settling in shares the majority of the remaining US11.5m of convertible loan notes from the Vanchem acquisition is a positive outcome at a critical juncture in Bushveld’s evolution. The renegotiated terms allow the group to lower its debt whilst preserving precious cash resources for its more value-adding production growth initiatives. Bushveld’s recent Q3 update indicates that both Vametco and Vanchem are well on course to achieve their respective full-year production and cost targets if the qu

Rio’s investors day was focused on two of the most critical mining industry thematics in today’s times, i.e. green and growth. The announced measures couldn’t have materialised at a better time, given the (recent) woes pertaining to governance and the iron ore market sell-off. Remember, considering Rio’s enviable balance sheet strength, it has the flexibility to pursue the targeted plans with rigorously and, at the same time, maintain ‘relative’ shareholder reward attractiveness. Hence, we reite
