Roxi, the Central Asian oil and gas company, with a focus on Kazakhstan, is pleased to announce that it will shortly be posting to shareholders a circular regarding a proposed merger in respect of the company's Eragon Assets. The circular also provides details regarding the proposed conversion of the outstanding US$10 100 525 of Vertom loan notes into Roxi ordinary shares.
The Independent Directors and the Baverstock Quotaholders have, subject to independent Roxi Shareholder approval and regulatory consent, agreed to merge Roxi's and Baverstock's interests in Eragon, which holds an indirect 99% interest in the company's principal asset, BNG. The merger is to be achieved by Roxi increasing its effective shareholding in Eragon from 59 to 100%, thereby increasing Roxi's interest in the BNG contract area from 58.41 to 99%.
Subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, Roxi has agreed to allot 651 436 544 new ordinary shares to Baverstock. A further 80 804 200 conversion shares are to be issued to Kuat Oraziman pursuant to the conversion of Vertom loan, as detailed below. Together these new ordinary shares will represent 43.86% of the company's enlarged share capital.
Clive Carver, Chairman of Roxi commented, "The proposed merger has been longed planned and once completed will bring 99% of our principal asset BNG under our direct control removing any funding constraints associated with maintaining the current structure. Additionally, the capitalisation of some US$10 million of debt would not only make the group essentially debt free but also demonstrates the continued belief and commitment of the companies leading investors to it ultimate success."
