New Offtake Arrangements

President Energy (AIM: PPC), the upstream oil and gas company with a diverse portfolio of production and exploration assets focused primarily in Argentina, announces the entry into new offtake arrangements with Trafigura Argentina S.A, part of the Trafigura group of companies, the multinational commodity trader.

Under the arrangements, President is selling Trafigura certain of its production from its assets in the Rio Negro Province on certain industry standard terms. Separately, Trafigura has agreed to make an advance to President repayable on commercial terms.

Such arrangements have created the added financial flexibility to pay off the US$3.6 million outstanding balance of the US$4 million high interest debt (12.5% plus 6 months US$ LIBOR per annum) owed to Bank Hipotecario which was taken out at the time of the acquisition of the Las Bases and Puesto Prado assets in late 2018. This now leaves President with only US$4.8 million Bank debt bearing a lower interest rate of 7.5% plus 6 months US$ LIBOR per annum. This amount is scheduled to reduce to US$3.7 million by the end of 2019, and to only US$1.2 million by end 2020 at which time the only other anticipated debt owing by the Group will be such monies as are then outstanding to IYA, a company beneficially owned by Peter Levine. The Bank debt is scheduled to be fully repaid by June the following year.

At the same time President has repaid and retired US$1.5 million of debt bearing an interest rate of 12.5% plus 6 months US$ LIBOR owed to IYA, a Company beneficially owned by Peter Levine.

Peter Levine M.A (Oxon), Chairman commented:

"We are very pleased to engage with Trafigura and view them as an important strategic commercial partner in the future growth of President.

"The retiring of higher cost debt is part of the Company's financial strategy and we are pleased to have been able to progress this in advance of expectations."
