Afentra has announced that Afentra has been selected as preferred bidder to purchase interests in Block 3/05 and Block 23. This follows the announcements on 8 October 2021 and 3 February 2022 that the Company had submitted a non-binding expression of interest for the two blocks which resulted in the subsequent suspension of Afentra shares.
During the first quarter of 2022, Afentra has continued to progress the Sale & Purchase Agreement (SPA) negotiations with Sonangol and are pleased to now be selected as preferred bidder for both blocks. The next steps will involve finalising the SPA and completing the final due diligence required on the Acquisition. There is, however, no guarantee at this stage that an agreement between the two companies will be reached.
