LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF EMPYREAN ENERGY PLC

 

1.  Introduction

 

The Company is pleased to announce its intention to raise up to £2.01 million (before expenses) pursuant to the launch of an Open Offer to all Qualifying Shareholders. This will provide Qualifying Shareholders with an opportunity to subscribe for an aggregate of 57,417,375 Open Offer Shares, on the basis of 1 Open Offer Share for every 8 Existing Ordinary Shares held on the Record Date, at 3.5 pence per Open Offer Share.  

 

Qualifying Shareholders subscribing for their full entitlement under the Open Offer may also request additional Open Offer Shares through the Excess Application Facility. Any allotment of Open Offer Shares pursuant to the Excess Application Facility will be at the sole discretion of the Board. In the event that the Open Offer is not fully subscribed, it is intended that the Board will reserve the right to use reasonable endeavours to place the excess shares available under the Open Offer, at not less than the Issue Price, in order to raise up to the maximum proceeds under the Open Offer.

 

The purpose of the Circular is to outline the reasons for, and to explain the terms of, the Open Offer and to set out the reasons why your Board believes that the Open Offer is in the best interests of the Company and its Shareholders as a whole.

 

On behalf of the Board, I invite Qualifying Shareholders to consider subscribing for Open Offer Shares in the Open Offer. I take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support of the Company.

 

2.  Reasons for the Open Offer and use of proceeds

 

The Company released an Operations Update on 31 March 2020 which summarised its current and near-term activity across its asset base and highlighted the adverse impact of the significant volatility in the financial markets as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and the recent oil price war and resulting slump in the oil price has had on its strategic and near-term financing options.

 

As announced on 14 April 2020, the Company raised £410,950 through a direct subscription by a number of existing investors and directors of the Company for a total of 11,741,429 new Ordinary Shares at 3.5p per share. The net proceeds of the Subscription are sufficient to satisfy the Company's share of final costs in relation to the drilling of the highly-successful Tambak-1 and Tambak-2 wells in Q4 2019, including post drilling resource updates, and to provide sufficient working capital through to the end of May 2020. However, following receipt of the net proceeds of the Subscription, the Company has a funding requirement of c.£1.2 million to cover its general and administrative costs and working capital requirements from June 2020 through to the end of April 2021. This amount excludes anticipated costs relating to the final preparation for, and drilling of, the commitment well at Block 29/11 in the Pearl River Mouth Basin, offshore China.

 

The Company announced on 18 April 2020 that it has elected not to proceed with a proposed placing to raise up to a further £1 million, due to continued volatility in global commodities markets and the effect of a further decline in the price of oil over recent days. The Board has reviewed a number of funding alternatives to finance the Company's ongoing requirements and has concluded that it is in the best interests of the Company to proceed with the Open Offer in the first instance.

 

The net proceeds of the Open Offer will provide the Company with additional working capital and ensure greater financial flexibility as the Company seeks to capitalise on and realise a portion of the significant value created in its diverse asset base. The Company also has access to financing for its ongoing working capital requirements through the Long State Facility, which it has yet to utilise.

 

The Circular and other information about the Company and our recent activities, including our regulatory announcements, investor presentations and financial reports, are available at the Company's website, www.empyreanenergy.com.

 

Having successfully completed the direct subscriptions noted above, and following the significant upgrade of internal resource estimates at the Mako Gas Field in Indonesia as announced on 14 April 2020 (shown in the table below), the Board feels strongly that Qualifying Shareholders should, where it is practical for them to do so, have the opportunity to participate in an issue of new Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price.

Therefore, on behalf of the Directors, it is my pleasure to offer Qualifying Shareholders an opportunity to participate in the Open Offer, by making available up to 57,417,375 new Ordinary Shares to Qualifying Shareholders at the Issue Price. The Open Offer provides an opportunity for all Qualifying Shareholders to participate in a fundraising by subscribing for Open Offer Shares pro rata to their current holding of Ordinary Shares.

 

Qualifying Shareholders may subscribe for Open Offer Shares above their basic entitlement under the Open Offer if they so wish by use of the Excess Application Facility. Further details of the Excess Application Facility are given in Part III of the Circular. In the event that the Open Offer is not fully subscribed, it is intended that the Board reserves the right to use reasonable endeavours to place the balance of the Open Offer Shares, at not less than the Issue Price, in order to raise up to the maximum proceeds under the Open Offer.

 

3.  Details of the Open Offer

 

On, and subject to, the terms and conditions of the Open Offer, the Company invites all Qualifying Shareholders to apply for Open Offer Shares at the Issue Price, payable in full on application and free of all expenses, on the following basis:

 

1 Open Offer Share for every 8 Existing Ordinary Shares

 

held on the Record Date and so in proportion to the number of Existing Ordinary Shares then held. Entitlements of Qualifying Shareholders will be rounded down to the nearest whole number of Open Offer Shares. Fractional entitlements which would otherwise arise will not be issued to the Qualifying Shareholders but will be added to the number of Excess Open Offer Shares (if any).

 

Once subscriptions under the Open Offer Entitlements have been satisfied, the Board shall, in its absolute discretion, determine whether to meet any excess applications in full or in part, and no assurance can be given that applications by Qualifying Shareholders under the Excess Application Facility will be met in full or in part or at all. To the extent that additional Open Offer Shares are not subscribed by existing Shareholders, Open Offer entitlements will lapse and the Board reserves the right to use reasonable endeavours to place the balance of shares available under the Open Offer, at not less than the Issue Price, in order to raise up to the maximum proceeds under the Open Offer. Further details of the Open Offer and the Excess Application Facility are given in Part III of the Circular.

 

Not all Shareholders will be Qualifying Shareholders. In particular, Overseas Shareholders who are located in, or are citizens of, or have a registered office address in a Restricted Jurisdiction will not qualify to participate in the Open Offer. The attention of Qualifying Shareholders and in particular Overseas Shareholders is drawn to paragraph 6 of Part III of the Circular.

 

Valid applications by Qualifying Shareholders will be satisfied in full up to their Open Offer Entitlements. Qualifying Shareholders can apply for less or more than their entitlements under the Open Offer.

 

Open Offer Entitlements set out in an Application Form may be converted into uncertificated form, that is, deposited into CREST (whether such conversion arises as a result or a renunciation of those rights or otherwise). Similarly, CREST Open Offer Entitlements held in CREST may be withdrawn from CREST and an Application Form used instead.

 

Application will be made for the Open Offer Entitlements to be admitted to CREST. It is expected that such CREST Open Offer Entitlements will be credited to CREST on 24 April 2020. The CREST Open Offer Entitlements will be enabled for settlement in CREST until 11:00 a.m. on 11 May 2020. Applications through the CREST system may only be made by the Qualifying CREST Shareholder originally entitled or by a person entitled by virtue of bona fide market claims. The Open Offer Shares must be paid in full on application. The latest time and date for receipt of completed Application Forms or CREST application and payment in respect of the Open Offer is 11:00 a.m. on 11 May 2020.

 

Qualifying Shareholders should note that the Open Offer is not a rights issue and therefore Open Offer Shares which are not applied for by Qualifying Shareholders will not be sold in the market for the benefit of the Qualifying Shareholders who do not apply under the Open Offer, but will be made available under the Excess Application Facility and the net proceeds will be retained for the benefit of the Company. The Application Form is not a document of title and cannot be traded or otherwise transferred.

 

The Open Offer Shares will be issued free of all liens, charges and encumbrances and will, when issued and fully paid, rank pari passu in all respects with the Existing Ordinary Shares, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after the date of their issue. Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the admission of the Open Offer Shares to trading on AIM. It is expected that Admission will occur and that dealings will commence at 8.00 a.m. on or about 13 May 2020, at which time it is also expected that the Open Offer Shares will be enabled for settlement in CREST.

 

Details of the further terms and conditions of the Open Offer, including the procedure for application and payment, are contained in Part III of the Circular and on the Application Form enclosed with the Circular.

 

If a Qualifying Shareholder does not wish to apply for Open Offer Shares, he or she should not complete or return the Application Form or send a USE message through CREST.

 

Overseas Shareholders

 

The attention of Qualifying Shareholders who have registered addresses outside the United Kingdom, or who are citizens or residents of countries other than the United Kingdom, or who are holding Existing Ordinary Shares for the benefit of such persons (including, without limitation, custodians, nominees, trustees and agents) or who have a contractual or other legal obligation to forward the Circular or the Application Form to such persons, is drawn to the information which appears in paragraph 6 of Part III of the Circular.

 

In particular, Qualifying Shareholders who have registered addresses in or who are resident in, or who are citizens of, countries other than the UK (including without limitation any Restricted Jurisdiction), should consult their professional advisers as to whether they require any governmental or other consents or need to observe any other formalities to enable them to take up their Open Offer Entitlements.

 

4.  Action to be taken

 

Qualifying Non-CREST Shareholders wishing to apply for Open Offer Shares must complete the Application Form, which accompanies the Circular, in accordance with the instructions set out in paragraph 4 of Part III of the Circular and on the accompanying Application Form and return it with the appropriate payment in the envelope addressed to the Receiving Agent by post or by hand (during normal business hours only) to Link Asset Services, Corporate Actions, The Registry, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 4TU, United Kingdom, so as to arrive no later than 11.00 a.m. on 11 May 2020.

 

If you are a Qualifying CREST Shareholder, no Application Form will be sent to you. Qualifying CREST Shareholders will have Open Offer Entitlements credited to their stock accounts in CREST. You should refer to the procedure for application set out in paragraph 5 of Part III of the Circular. The relevant CREST instructions must have settled in accordance with the instructions in paragraph 5 of Part III of the Circular by no later than 11:00a.m. on 11 May 2020.

 

Qualifying CREST Shareholders who are CREST sponsored members should refer to their CREST sponsors regarding the action to be taken in connection with the Circular and the Open Offer.

 

If you do not wish to apply for any Open Offer Shares under the Open Offer, you should not complete or return the Application Form or send a USE message through CREST.

 

Any Qualifying Shareholder that is unable to access their Application Form for the Open Offer or has any other impediment to participate in the Open Offer (for example as a result of COVID-19 restrictions), please contact the Company Secretary directly on [email protected] and the Company will take reasonable steps to make alternative arrangements for any Qualifying Shareholder wishing to subscribe for Ordinary Shares on the same basis as the Open Offer.
