Dundee Corporation (Dundee) and its subsidiary, United Hydrocarbon International Corp. (United), are pleased to announce that United has closed its previously announced transaction (the “Transaction”) with Delonex Energy Limited (Delonex). The Company and Delonex have satisfied or waived all the conditions precedent under the Share Purchase Agreement dated May 10, 2017, as amended (the “SPA”), including all board, shareholder and regulatory approvals.

The Transaction is for Delonex to acquire United’s indirectly wholly-owned subsidiary, United Hydrocarbon Chad Ltd. (“UHCL”), which holds the Company’s May 2, 2012 Production Sharing Contract, as amended (the “PSC”).

Delonex paid US$35 million on the closing of the Transaction (subject to applicable escrow and holdback requirements), and will pay an additional US$50 million if first oil is achieved, including US$20 million for first oil at Doba and US$30 million for first oil at Block H. United will retain a royalty of 10 per cent on Doba production and a 5 per cent royalty on Block H production, payable unless the average price of Brent Crude oil is less than US$45 for a quarter.

Delonex has committed US$65 million in funding within two years of the closing date for a comprehensive exploration program for the assets in Chad, and, subject to commerciality being achieved, a further US$35 million for development in Doba. The exploration program will include 2D and 3D seismic programs and three exploration wells, representing a significant increase in activity when compared to UHCL’s current obligations.

United estimates that following closing of the Transaction and payment of all outstanding debts, expenses and other obligations of the Company, including repayment to Dundee of CAD$5.1 million, United will retain approximately CAD$14 million for working capital purposes, not including escrow amounts.

United’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Gabriel Ollivier, commented as follows: “The Transaction is very encouraging for United’s shareholders as it grants us sustained material exposure to the potential of our blocks without having to raise additional capital.” David Goodman, Chairman of the board of directors of the Company, added: “We are very pleased with the Transaction as it gives shareholders the opportunity to realize a significant return on their investment once commerciality is achieved.”

GMP FirstEnergy acted as financial advisor to United.
