EGYPT: SDX Energy Announces Reconstitution of South Disouq Disposal Transaction
SDX Energy announces that, at the request of the Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS), its wholly owned subsidiary, Sea Dragon Energy (Nile) B.V. and Energy Flow Global Limited (EFGL) have reconstituted the transaction announced on 1 February 2022.
There is no change to the underlying economic substance of the original transaction. Under the original transaction, EFGL acquired an effective 18.15% interest in the South Disouq concession through its acquisition of 33% in Nile B.V.. Under the Reconstitution, Nile B.V has assigned a direct 18.15% interest in the South Disouq concession to EFGL by way of a Deed of Assignment. EFGL has simultaneously returned its 33% stake in Nile B.V. to SDX for a nominal fee of $1. The parties have agreed to an effective date, as of the signature by the Egyptian Minister of Petroleum of the Deed of Assignment on 22 February, 2023.
As EFGL is considered a related party of SDX, the Reconstitution represents a related party transaction under the AIM Rules. The directors of the Company having consulted with the Company’s nominated adviser, consider that the terms of the transaction are fair and reasonable insofar as its shareholders are concerned.
