Shore Capital acts as Nominated Adviser & Joint Bookrunner on US$6m Placing and Subscription for Petro Matad Limited

Shore Capital is delighted to have acted as Joint Bookrunner for Petro Matad Limited (AIM: MATD) on a US$6m placing and subscription to fund the progression of their current operations, including the development of renewable energy projects.

With a market capitalisation of £37m before the transaction, Petro Matad is a group focused on oil exploration, development and production in Mongolia. The Group is currently focusing on developing the Heron oil discovery but continues to seek new opportunities in the energy sector of Mongolia in both conventional oil exploration and production activities, but also in the renewable sector.

Renewable energy project opportunities in Mongolia are significant and supported by Government policies. The proceeds will enable the Company to undertake project development alongside its partner, Wolfson, in a newly formed JV called SunSteppe Renewable Energy. Wolfson has a proven renewable energy project development track-record in Mongolia and the JV has identified a number of priority opportunities.
