CORPORATE STRUCTURE

NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND PRINCIPAL ACTIVITIES

The principal activity of the Company during the financial year was oil and gas exploration and project identification.

REVIEW OF OPERATIONS

Alaska North Slope

During the year, Red Emperor, along with 88 Energy Limited (ASX/AIM: 88E) ("88 Energy") and Otto Energy Limited (ASX: OEL) ("Otto") (collectively, the "Consortium Partners"), executed formal "Definitive Agreements", including a Participation Agreement, with Great Bear Petroleum Ventures II LLC ("Great Bear") to acquire the majority of Great Bear's working interest in four leases on the western flank of the Alaska North Slope region, specifically ADL#s 391718, 391719, 319720 & 391721; collectively the "Western Blocks" (Refer to the Company's announcement of 30 July 2018 for more details).

The consortium operator, 88 Energy, via its wholly owned subsidiary, Captivate Energy Alaska, Inc, subsequently executed a rig contract with Nordic-Calista Services for the drilling of the "Winx" Prospect, located on the Western Blocks, North Slope of Alaska. The primary objective of the Winx-1 exploration well ("Winx-1") was a Nanushuk Topset play, primarily targeting the Nanushuk 4 and 5 sands.

88 Energy spudded the Winx-1 exploration well on the Western Blocks in February 2019, and intersected all pre-drill targets safely and efficiently. Total target depth of 6,800ft was reached on 3 March 2019. Whilst early indications from the logging while drilling (LWD) data were encouraging, provisional wireline results indicated low oil saturations in the Nanushuk Topsets not conducive to successfully flowing the formation, as borne out by the Modular Formation Dynamics Test (MDT) sampling results, which did not retrieve hydrocarbon samples.

Additionally, on completion of the wireline logging programme in the Torok Channel Sequence, it was apparent that the oil saturations in that zone of interest were also low and not conducive to hydrocarbon flow. As announced on 26 March 2019, Winx-1 was successfully plugged and abandoned with the Nordic#3 rig and associated services fully demobilised. By participating in the drilling of Winx-1, the Company earned a 31.5% working interest in the Western Blocks.

Evaluation of the data acquired at Winx-1 is ongoing. The consortium expects to go out to tender for the reprocessing of the Nanuq 3D seismic, incorporating the valuable data acquired at Winx-1, and acquisition of new seismic data in Q3 2019. This will allow sufficient time for the consortium to complete all required technical and evaluation work prior to the 2020/2021 drilling season.

Philippines (SC 55)

On 19 November 2018, the Operator, Palawan55 Exploration and Production Corporation ("Palawan55"), on behalf of the SC55 consortium, requested that the Philippine's Department of Energy ("DOE") extend the moratorium period to allow sufficient time for the then ongoing reprocessing and quantitative interpretation ("QI") work to be completed. On 22 April 2019, the DOE granted a 4-month extension, from 26 April to 26 August 2019.

The Seismic data reprocessing and QI works were performed by DownUnder GeoSolutions. This activity was part of the continuing effort by the Block SC55 consortium to help further de-risk previously identified drill-ready targets, including the "Cinco" gas prospect and identify new highly prospective leads whilst reducing overall uncertainty.

Further to the recent completion of these works and evaluation of the data, the Board has decided that it will not participate in the next phase of operations and will therefore withdraw from the SC55 consortium and assign the Company's 37.5% participating interest to Palawan55.

Corporate

Red Emperor Alaska Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary company, was incorporated on 11 July 2018 in the State of Alaska in connection with the abovementioned transaction with Great Bear.

On 8 August 2018, the Company issued 16,000,000 unlisted options to senior management and a corporate adviser associated with the Western Block acquisition, exercisable at A$0.04 each on or before 31 December 2020.

On 22 November 2018, the Company issued a further 10,000,000 unlisted options to its Directors, exercisable at A$0.04 each on or before 31 December 2020.

In January 2019 the company successfully completed a placing of 100,000,000 new ordinary shares at an issue price of 2.8 pence (AUD0.05) per share to raise GBP2.8 million (approximately AUD5.0m) before expenses. The oversubscribed placing was made to both new and existing institutional and sophisticated investors, via the Company's UK Broker, Brandon Hill Capital, and its Australian Broker and Corporate Adviser, 708 Capital Pty Ltd and Max Capital. In addition, the Company agreed to issue, in aggregate, 6,000,000 unlisted options to its aforementioned brokers and corporate advisers as part of the fee structure for placing the shares. These options are exercisable at a price of 2.8 pence (AUD0.05) per new ordinary share, on or before 15 January 2022.

In May 2019, further to the completion of the drilling of the Winx-1 exploration well on the Western Blocks, North Slope of Alaska, the Company received a refund of the performance bond (RMP's share US$1.05 million) which had been lodged with the State of Alaska in July 2018.

SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE STATE OF AFFAIRS

There have been no significant changes in the state of affairs of the Group during the financial year, other than as set out in this report.

SIGNIFICANT EVENTS AFTER THE REPORTING DATE

On 12 August 2019 Mr Gracjan Lambert, Chief Executive Officer, resigned from the Company, by mutual agreement, in order to pursue his other business interests. Gracjan may still consult to Red Emperor from time to time in the future. There have been no other significant events subsequent to the end of the financial year to the date of this report.

LIKELY DEVELOPMENTS AND EXPECTED RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The Group will continue to identify, evaluate and invest in resource projects with the object of identifying commercial resources. The Company intends to pursue additional acquisition and investment opportunities in order to secure new projects to augment its existing assets in the natural resources sector.

ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS AND PERFORMANCE

The Group operates within the resources sector and conducts its business activities with respect for the environment while continuing to meet the expectations of its shareholders, employees and suppliers. The Group aims to ensure that the highest standard of environmental care is achieved, and that it complies with all relevant environmental legislation.

The Group has no current reporting obligations under the Natural Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 due to all operations occurring overseas. The Directors are mindful of the regulatory regime in relation to the impact of its organisational activities on the environment. There have been no known breaches by the Group during the year.

    32,000,000 
                ------------------  -------------------- 
 

No option holder has any right under the options to participate in any other share issue of the Company or any other entity. 4,320,000 options expired unexercised during the financial year. No options were exercised during or since the year ended 30 June 2019.

INDEMNIFICATION AND INSURANCE OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS

The Company has entered into an agreement indemnifying all the Directors and officers of the Company against all losses or liabilities incurred by each Director or officer in their capacity as Directors or officers of the Company to the extent permitted by the Corporations Act 2001. The indemnification specifically excludes wilful acts of negligence.

The Company paid insurance premiums in respect of Directors' and Officers' Liability Insurance contracts for current officers of the Company, including officers of the Company's controlled entities. The liabilities insured are damages and legal costs that may be incurred in defending civil or criminal proceedings that may be brought against the officers in their capacity as officers of entities in the Group.

DIRECTORS' MEETINGS

During the financial year, in addition to regular Board discussions, the Directors met regularly to discuss all matters associated with investment strategy, review of opportunities, and other Company matters on an informal basis. The regular nature of these meetings is facilitated through the sharing of office space along with Max Capital, Red Emperor's Corporate Advisor. Circular resolutions were passed as necessary to execute formal Board decisions.
