Deltic Energy - Statement of support from IPGL

On 15 July 2020, Reabold Resources plc ("Reabold") announced a potential all share offer for the issued and to be issued share capital of Deltic Energy (the "Proposed Offer").

After consideration of the Proposed Offer with its advisers, on 16 July 2020, Deltic Energy announced that its board had rejected the Proposed Offer.

Deltic is today pleased to announce that on 20 July 2020 it received a letter from IPGL (Holdings) Limited ("IPGL"), a company controlled by Michael Spencer, and the largest shareholder in Deltic.  In this letter, the text of which is set out below, IPGL stated its intention not to support the Proposed Offer and reiterated its continuing support of Deltic's management team, its technical capability, focused asset base with high impact potential and current strategy.   

The Board of Deltic continues to believe that the Proposed Offer:

-  does not place an appropriate value on Deltic Energy;


-  lacks any compelling strategic rationale, commercial logic or sufficient operational synergies; and


-  does not reflect the commercial and technical risks associated with the Reabold portfolio and their potentially dilutive impact on Deltic's own portfolio and prospects.

Dear Chairman,


Re Possible offer from Reabold Resources plc ("Reabold") to acquire Deltic Energy Plc ("Deltic")


I am writing on behalf of IPGL (Holdings) Limited ("IPGL") to inform you that we do not intend to  accept the proposed offer by Reabold for Deltic, as announced on 15 July 2020, in respect of IPGL's entire shareholding in Deltic.

This intention reflects our continuing support of Deltic's management team, its technical capability, focused asset base with high impact potential and current strategy.

IPGL holds 236,432,780 shares in Deltic, representing 16.8% of the issued share capital and it does not have a shareholding in Reabold.

I confirm that IPGL consents to this letter being referenced publicly. 

Yours sincerely,

Michael Spencer


Chairman

IPGL Limited
