Why can’t I buy Reabold shares through some broker accounts?
We believe that some brokers, including Halifax and Lloyds, have incorrectly identified Reabold as a PRIIP (Packaged Retail and Insurance Based Investment Product).
We have subsequently contacted the FCA in attempt to get clarification that Reabold is not a PRIIP. The FCA is reviewing the unintended consequences of PRIIP legislation and we are continuing to liaise with the FCA to resolve this issue.

When is Parta being drilled?
The first well of a two-well appraisal campaign at Parta is scheduled for late June 2019.
Are there still permits to be obtained before drilling at Parta can start?
There are two key remaining milestones prior to the expected spud of IM-1 in late June 2019, being the environmental permit and the construction authorisation, both of which are issued at a local county level (Timis County). Based on interactions with local authorities, ADX, as the contract operator, is confident that these permits and authorisations will be available shortly, after which site construction can be undertaken. Importantly, there is flexibility with the rig contractor, Romanian based Tacrom Services S.R.L, in terms of having rig availability upon ADX achieving operational readiness.
What effect do changing oil and gas prices have on Reabold?
Reabold is an oil and gas investing company with oil production assets. This means that rising oil and gas prices have positive, yet subtle effects on the Company and its growth.
Firstly, as a producer, Reabold directly benefits from rising global oil prices through the sale of oil from its Californian assets which are priced in relation to Brent Crude. Similarly, the value of de-risked resources and reserves which Reabold has proved through drilling, track oil and gas prices.
As an investing company, however, the effect of oil and gas prices changing has a more subtle effect.
As defined by its strategy, Reabold focuses on projects which the industry does not value correctly. This valuation anomaly exists primarily as a result of the oil and gas industry’s focus on increasing reserves and, ultimately production. This has meant that production opportunities, which are contingent on oil and gas prices, have been valued highly during the oil downturn.
With the industry’s focus on production acquisition, appraisal or low-risk exploration opportunities have been less highly valued and are not contingent on prevailing oil and gas prices. The low valuations of these opportunities have provided an opportunity for investors such as Reabold to provide capital and to prove reserves through low-cost, near-term drilling. Once de-risked through successful drilling, these assets attract much higher valuations and become more interlinked to oil and gas prices.

When capital is available to the Company to invest, how quickly can that be deployed into another project?
In the case of capital raised through capital markets, quick deployment is a key focus for the Company. However, unlike many companies, Reabold does not raise capital to fund a specific, defined project or activity which it already owns but instead the Company markets several potential investment opportunities that have been matured before entering a roadshow in order to give a flavour of the opportunities available to the Company.
Will Reabold participate in any additional projects in the near future?
We continue to believe that this is a fantastic time to deploy capital into pre-cash flow upstream oil & gas projects, as costs remain low and opportunities abundant. We are constantly assessing a number of projects and remain in a strong position to execute on further transactions.
How does Reabold plan to monetise its investments?
Returning capital to shareholders is integral to Reabold’s investment strategy. Once value is created by proving up reserves at one of Reabold’s assets, there are various potential ways for the Company to relay this value back to shareholders, for example by selling Reabold’s stake in the asset to another E&P company or investor, spinning off the asset into an independent Company through an IPO process or putting the asset into production. How Reabold eventually monetises each investment is dependent on many factors including market conditions and the extent of any drilling success.
