hilly71: Evening all. I'm as impatient as the next person to see the share price reverse its trend and start to reflect the strength of the company and the obvious transformation from its previous incarnation. LK will obviously be keen to see any upward share price movement sustained, and it seems the plan has been to convert the company from being a traders' share (with all the volatility that this brings) to a genuine investors' share that delivers lasting increases in the share price The move made to increase II support (does it get better than Schroeders investing?) is most welcome to ensure that the shares find 'sticky hands', and possibly the apparent lack of newsflow in recent months is designed to cause the traders to move on and look elsewhere...? As I say though, I'm keen to see the share price start to make moves north - let's hope the next update, which is likely to be the catalyst for this, is not too far away (before the EOY would be nice!) and shareholders will soon be rewarded for their patience.
toploadermike: Hi John & TG, Thanks for the reply's, very comprehensive and welcomed. Yes I fully understand the MM's methods of working, my friend many years ago was a MM but the point again is that there is still no reason to reduce the share by 2 points for no reason, other than bad share management by either the broker or the MM. Now how they make a loss or profit is not and should never be a deciding factor on the share price of a company and this to me needs looking at officially and by request of the company owners as the impact to the company based on a MM or Broker position could be and has been known to be dramatic. It is important to understand that company's and the controlling factions all have different goals which often compete. Without going into too much detail it has been known for companies Boards to persuade their brokers and in some instances directly with MM's to keep their share price low in order to control situations like buy outs and reverse takeovers and I get that (although that's also probably illegal), but with CERP the foundations are now fairly strong IMHO and we really shouldn't be seeing such a low or reducing share price unless someone or something is manipulating the SP, which again "I believe is illegal" and although I would never say someone is doing such a thing, it looks very strange to me in this instance, as it makes absolutely no sense as to why the price is continually going south. So the board need to make sense of what is happening and reverse the constant downward slide. I am saying this now as if the price gets much lower the day trading mob will flood this share IMHO and then it's an uphill battle to re-establish reputation... I hope I am wrong more than you could imagine but again, the price is not where it should be and seems to me to be abnormally suffocated. Do we know how many MM's have been authorised to trade CERP shares? ATB TL
smoggyg: 'Him' not 'them',as you pointed out in your very first post here. In fact you have only posted here,strange that,it is just as if you only joined up because of me,that reminds me of 12bm. Good to see that you devoted so much time and effort for little old me,you saddo. Here are your posts.///////EggChaser - 25 Oct 2018 - 08:30:24 - 68 of 69 CERP is a serial loser,watch out for more fund raising. - CERP Arry I can see quite quickly that this Smoggy/12bn chap is quite a fanny. I wouldn’t give them anymore of your time. EggChaser - 24 Oct 2018 - 16:07:27 - 6103 of 6113 Columbus Energy Resources PLC - CERP The boys and I were just trying to recall the last time we saw a larger spread and it wasn’t at Autie Ethel’s wake I can tell you. As TL said large buy order being filled as they don’t want you to buy them that’s clear. EggChaser - 22 Oct 2018 - 10:52:44 - 6072 of 6113 Columbus Energy Resources PLC - CERP Mike we agree hence why we think the latest cash call was much better than Lind being relied upon as the shares stay with the recipients for a longer duration. I see another 100k drip. How many more one wonders? EggChaser - 21 Oct 2018 - 20:53:18 - 6062 of 6113 Columbus Energy Resources PLC - CERP Offerman / TG et all. What we would like to know - who has been drip selling 100k chunks since earlier this year, could be DL or NR as we donâ€482;t think anyone else outside of Lind has a large enough holding to do this with? We think that until that’s done the share price will peg lower than where it could be as its contributed to holding us back. We also think that its a brilliant curve ball that MJ and Schroders have stumped up cash to accelerate the companies plans - Lind must have been rubbing their hands together until that happened. As I posted a bit back LK is quite an impatient chap and seeing his MO and his previous track record we don't think we have much longer to wait to see the next great step forwards will be. One huge point for us is the fact that we now have many other strings to our bow and are now far from a one trick pony especially with the frustrations we see in Spain. Time as always will tell but we and our holdings have the upmost confidence in LK, or unlike so many we would not be invested and continue to top up, when timings allow. Back to lurking. EggChaser - 19 Oct 2018 - 20:32:14 - 46 of 69 CERP is a serial loser,watch out for more fund raising. - CERP Arry I see the thread entertainer has gotten his landing wrong again - don’t think I saw 3.5 on the bid today? It backs our thoughts on the intelligence of said fool and how it’s impossible he or she is working alone. We suspect he/she needs their bottom wiping and packed lunch preparing each day but that is conjecture on our part of course. EggChaser - 19 Oct 2018 - 11:24:00 - 6043 of 6113 Columbus Energy Resources PLC - CERP Price drops on small volume… Shocker!!!! EggChaser - 17 Oct 2018 - 20:14:32 - 35 of 69 CERP is a serial loser,watch out for more fund raising. - CERP NorthPole I have read some of 12bn posts sorry Smoggy and I can’t understand for someone whom claims to be so cleaver why he continues to post about a company he obviously thinks will fail... All that energy wasted with negativity brings me and the chaps here to the conclusion that he/she or it is somehow benefiting from a lower share price which then makes me and the boys wonder who he is representing because he clearly does not have the intellect to be acting alone... The old adage give someone enough rope.... We are watching with interest... EggChaser - 16 Oct 2018 - 20:36:18 - 6020 of 6113 Columbus Energy Resources PLC - CERP I agree with that comment... well said that man/woman!!!??! EggChaser - 16 Oct 2018 - 20:31:29 - 27 of 69 CERP is a serial loser,watch out for more fund raising. - CERP So smoggy has an identity crisis? Looking at his posts and of his alter ego 12bn one can say without any question this is not the only thing this person struggles with. Arry the boys and I salute your attempts to reason with what appears to be pond life, if itâ€T82;s of any comfort we have our eye on him... I shall leave you to it. best of luck.. Smoggy if only your past investments were as on point as your grammar but clearly you're eyesight leaves much to be desired. I note your wit, investment choices and your personality are all on the same plane. EggChaser - 16 Oct 2018 - 10:05:11 - 14 of 69 CERP is a serial loser,watch out for more fund raising. - CERP Arry Smoggy is 12bn... you can tell by the dense tone of his posts and investment choices... I admire you're trying to help what appears to be a lost cause... but one that we have our eye on..
smoggyg: Columbus is pleased to announce that, further to its announcement of 15 October 2018, it has today posted a circular (the "Circular") to Shareholders regarding the conditional placing of 71,428,571 new ordinary shares in the share capital of the Company (the "Placing Shares") at a price of 3.5 pence per share//// 71,428,571 new shares! This will inevitably take the share price down to 3.5p and probably lower. If you want an example of what happens after big placings then look at Cerps share price now compared with the 5p placing.NR did several placings here (when the company was LGO) and the share price fell and fell,only when Leo took over did it rise fast. The real reason for the falling share price is Cerp/lgo has always been a cash loser,it still is. Maybe one day LK will buy enough add ons to turn Cerp into a profitable company but it will be at the expense of present holders,via dilutions.
smoggyg: I guess I was wrong on the placing,I didn't expect one until next year to fund a deep well,everyone makes mistakes. Here it is./////RNS Number : 9671D Columbus Energy Resources PLC 15 October 2018 NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA OR JAPAN OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE TO DO SO WOULD CONSTITUTE A BREACH OF THE RELEVANT SECURITIES LAWS OF SUCH JURISDICTION. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY AND DOES NOT ITSELF CONSTITUTE AN OFFER FOR SALE OR SUBSCRIPTION OF ANY SECURITIES IN COLUMBUS ENERGY RESOURCES PLC. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT DOES NOT CONSTITUTE OR CONTAIN ANY INVITATION, SOLICITATION, RECOMMATION, OFFER OR ADVICE TO ANY PERSON TO SUBSCRIBE FOR, OTHERWISE ACQUIRE OR DISPOSE OF ANY SECURITIES OF COLUMBUS ENERGY RESOURCES PLC IN ANY JURISDICTION IN WHICH ANY SUCH OFFER OR SOLICITATION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL. 15 October 2018 COLUMBUS ENERGY RESOURCES PLC ("Columbus" or the "Company") Conditional placing to raise up to approximately GBP2.5 million Acceleration of growth strategy The Board of Columbus, the oil and gas producer and explorer focused on onshore Trinidad with the ambition to grow in South America, is pleased to announce a conditional placing, by VSA Capital Limited ("VSA"), with new and existing shareholders including Schroder Investment Management Limited ("Schroders"), Michael Joseph and Burggraben Holding AG ("Burggraben"), of 71,428,571 new ordinary shares in the share capital of the Company (the "Placing Shares") at a price of 3.5 pence per Placing Share (the "Placing Price") to raise approximately GBP2.5 million (before expenses) (the "Placing"), subject to approval by shareholders at a General Meeting proposed to be held on 2 November 2018. Highlights: -- Conditional Placing of Placing Shares at 3.5 pence per Placing Share to raise approximately GBP2.5 million (before expenses); -- The Placing Price represents a discount of approximately 6.67% to the Closing Price on Friday 12 October 2018, the last trading day prior to this Announcement; -- The Board intend to use the net proceeds of the Placing to: o Repay the North Energy Capital AS loan facility ("North Energy Loan") in the sum of US$1.25 million (instead of the intended drawdown from the 2018 Lind Facility which was referred to on 10 October 2018 in the Company's Business, Operational and Financial Update); o Establish and implement a multi-well drilling campaign on the Steeldrum assets and also in the South West Peninsula ("SWP") - driven by value and "best bang for our buck"; and o Upgrade facilities in the South West Peninsula, particularly at Bonasse and Icacos, to speed up oil production growth and sales and also allow for early sales from any exploration success at the SWP in 2019. -- The Placing is conditional upon the passing by Shareholders of a special resolution to waive pre-emption rights on the issue of the Placing Shares (the "Resolution") at a General Meeting of the Company to be held on 2 November 2018; and -- Dealings in the Placing Shares issued pursuant to the Placing are expected to commence at 8.00 a.m. on 5 November 2018. Leo Koot, Executive Chairman of Columbus, commented: "With the completion of the Steeldrum transaction, Columbus now has a diverse production base and multiple, large exploration prospects. This is despite the legacy issues we have faced over the last year, which have made a dent in our funds earmarked for further development and have slowed our pace of growth. "Today's announcement follows strong market interest from two of our major shareholders who approached us late last week to provide the additional capital needed to fund an accelerated growth strategy. It also introduces a new institutional shareholder to our share register, Burggraben, whose principals visited our operations in Trinidad with our Board for a few days in August 2018. The placing provides us with the financial flexibility to pay off the North Energy Loan, thereby simplifying and strengthening our balance sheet. As a result, we will no longer need to drawdown on the 2018 Lind Facility to repay the North Energy Loan. Our major shareholders were keen to stress that they would rather see the monthly repayments, that would have been required to have been made on that Lind loan if it had been drawn-down, being invested in more value-adding opportunities in our operations. "Columbus can now establish and accelerate a multi-well drilling campaign on the Steeldrum assets, capitalising on the optionality the acquisition of Steeldrum grants us, and also bring forward activities in the South West Peninsula region. From these assets, and our ongoing other work programmes previously announced, I believe we can make some very strong, quick returns on very little capex. "We are grateful for the long-term support from our shareholders and are delighted to welcome Burggraben, who expressed a willingness, after their visit to our operations in Trinidad, to invest in Columbus when the right opportunity arose. We remain committed to the further creation of value for all invested in Columbus and are confident that today's placing provides us with the springboard to deliver additional production growth that will in turn be reflected in our cash flow and the share price which, in turn, rewards everyone, including myself and the management team, who are still effectively using half their salary to buy equity on a monthly basis at 5.1p per share." Background to and reasons for the Placing 2018 has been a year of significant development and progress for the Company. The completion of the acquisition of Steeldrum Oil Company Inc ("Steeldrum"), has been a material step in the growth of the Company and establishes a very solid base for our Trinidad operations. The Company now has a large, well balanced portfolio of assets across the south and south-west of Trinidad. The portfolio includes low-risk but highly prospective exploration opportunities in the South West Peninsula, a development project in Cory Moruga and 5 producing oilfields (Goudron, Innis Trinity, South Erin, Bonasse and Icacos). This provides the Company with an excellent opportunity to exploit our existing and new assets through operational excellence and also grow organically through exploration and the Cory Moruga development project. We will now focus on growing production and revenues in Innis Trinity and South Erin through the adoption of a similar operational strategy to our existing fields. Company Loans The Company reported in its Business, Financial and Operational Update (Q3 2018) on 10 October 2018, that Columbus planned to drawdown US$1.25 million from the 2018 Lind Loan, announced on 13 July 2018 alongside the announcement of the Steeldrum acquisition, to repay a US$1.25 million loan which Steeldrum holds with North Energy Capital AS ("North Energy and "North Energy Loan"). The planned drawn-down under the 2018 Lind Facility, which was specifically envisaged within the 2018 Lind Facility when it was established, would require repayments to Lind by the Company over a two-year period at approximately US$62,750 per month. The Company would rather invest an equivalent amount in more value-adding operational and business opportunities. In addition, the Company wishes to improve its balance sheet by reducing its outstanding loan position and has been seeking a more efficient means of repaying its loans and also introducing additional capital for new growth opportunities. Recent discussions with two of the Company's major shareholders, Schroders and Michael Joseph, as well as with the principals of Burggraben, indicated a willingness by those investors to provide a combined total of GBP2.5 million of funds via the Placing to enable these objectives to be achieved. Use of Proceeds The Board believes that the Company has an excellent opportunity to capitalise on its producing and exploration assets in Trinidad and to accelerate its growth in to South America. It is the Board's intentions that the net proceeds of the Placing (amounting to approximately GBP2.365 million) will provide the Company with the capital required to not only pay off the North Energy Loan but also to continue to enhance its well-balanced portfolio of assets in Trinidad. The Board therefore intends to use the net proceeds of the Placing to: -- Repay the North Energy Loan in the sum of US$1.25 million; -- Establish and implement a multi-well drilling campaign on the Steeldrum assets and also in the SWP - driven by value and "best bang for our buck"; and -- Optimise facilities in the SWP, particularly at Bonasse and Icacos, to speed up oil production growth and sales and also allow for early sales from any exploration success at the SWP in 2019. Details of the Placing Pursuant to the Placing, the Company is seeking to raise approximately GBP2.5 million through the issue of 71,428,571 new ordinary shares in the share capital of the Company at a price of 3.5 pence per Placing Share. The Placing will be conditional upon the passing of the Resolution at a General Meeting of Shareholders intended to be held on 2 November 2018. The Resolution is needed authorise the Directors to allot the Placing Shares on a non pre-emptive basis. This authority will not extend beyond the Placing Shares. Further details on the Resolution will be set out in the Circular (as defined below). Application will be made for the Placing to be admitted to trading on the AIM market ("AIM") of London Stock Exchange, ("Admission"), and it is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings will commence in the Placing Shares at 8.00 a.m. on 5 November 2018. The Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the Placing will rank pari passu with the Existing Ordinary Shares. Schroders is a substantial shareholder of the Company as defined in the AIM Rules for Companies ("AIM Rules"). As such, Schroders is a "related party" pursuant to the AIM Rules and the proposed Placing of 21,428,571 Placing Shares to Schroders is therefore a related party transaction for the purposes of Rule 13 of the AIM Rules. The Directors consider, having consulted with Beaumont Cornish, the Company's nominated adviser, that the terms of Placing are fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned. VSA is acting as Financial Adviser and Broker to the Company in connection with the Placing. Total Voting Rights Should the Resolution be passed and upon completion of the Placing, the Company's new issued share capital will consist of 830,881,192 ordinary shares with a nominal value of 0.05p each, with voting rights ("Ordinary Shares"). The Company does not hold any shares in Treasury. Therefore, the total number of Ordinary Shares in the Company with voting rights will be 830,881,192. Notice of General Meeting The Placing will be conditional upon the approval of the Resolution by Shareholders at the General Meeting to be held at the offices of VSA Capital Limited, New Liverpool House, 15-17 Eldon Street, London EC2M 7LD at 11.00 a.m. on 2 November 2018. A circular to shareholders (the "Circular") containing a notice of General Meeting and proxy card will be posted to shareholders no later than 17 October 2018 and will be available on the Company's website hxxps:// Importance of vote Shareholders should be aware that, if the Resolution is not approved at the General Meeting, the net proceeds of the Placing will not be received by the Company. Recommendation The Directors consider that the Placing is in the best interests of the Company and its Shareholders and is most likely to promote the success of the Company for the benefit of the Shareholders as a whole. Accordingly, in the Circular, the Directors will unanimously recommend that Shareholders vote in favour of the proposed Resolution, as they intend to do in respect of their holdings amount to an aggregate of 2,688,366 Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 0.35% of the Company's Existing Ordinary Shares.

offerman: Cheers Smoggy. It certainly does appear that it could come good as several people including Leo have stated that the area is awash with oil. When they were showing the seismic FTG slides at the previous presentation showed distinct echoes of huge areas of interest. I think the drill for 12,000 feet was between 2m to 4m which I think is far cheaper than the original quoted costs. I think they also get access to the best rig in the area with high-tech. Maybe the problems experienced in the 60s might in part hsve been down to equipment as well as terrain. Nothing is a guarantee and it could be that they drill that again and get similar problems. But they will be the best team on the job led by Leo who has chosen the rig negotiation. I'm sure he will choose the best team for that drill. Like you said and I agree that it's high risk but massive reward . And it won't be the middle of next year looking at it it does now look to be 1 1/2 to 2 years time. But before then maybe the shallower drills might encounter some good oil shows finds results which could create further interest give them a good idea of geology and where to drill. So until then maybe the material deal that Leo said would be even bigger than SWP The gold deal May yet come off before year end or end of the first quarter of 2019. So SWP would be just a bonus if the massive deal comes to fruition soon which will add goodness knows how many barrels of oil per day depending on the deal. Then there are all the well reactivation's from the three acquisitions licenses . It does look and it's something I've come to expect just from experience that anything that is stated is quoted always add minimum six months to whatever spoken about up to 2 years. A lot could happen before the next two years until SWP is drilled to 12,000 feet. The house brokers I know many people I divided on their opinions but they somehow have plucked a figure out of the sky of 25p people have said that is the target price for the next year. So what ever they are expecting to get that price they expecting that before the end of 2019 which would be very nice indeed. The news this coming up day on the 10th of October probably won't be any great shakes. It might even be just a damage limitation process for the poor share price and the much worse than expected goudron figures due to problems out of Leos hands. It could also be the other way that the equipment and techniques brought in to resolve the sand issues can actually resolve The problems they encounter. Not long to wait now to find out exactly what is what. I don't expect the share price to go much lower than where is if there are any small surprises to the plus side that should help their share price where is any mediocre news does seem to be already priced in from where the share price was before for long time at 5- 6p range. It could touch down to 3.8 I guess if it did get down to 3.65 again I would definitely be tempted to buy some more as I think it won't go much lower than that especially as fundraising has been ruled out many times by Leo. The good thing is as well is that if there was some surprise medium term for insuring new shares then we would be involved by way of an open offer as they did before and also resolution five blocked.
offerman: What intrigues me is the actual ways shares move up and down. People often say it's through buying and selling.Today is a classic example of something else that's able to move or manipulate a share price. We have had a couple of small buys and a couple of slightly larger sells and yet the price moves up. So unless there is a buyer in the background and there will be a late reported delayed buy I can't see what else actually moves the share price. I know news is up and coming with the update but I wonder what actually makes the share price go up and what or who presses buttons to set the price. As at the moment it doesn't seem to be based on buys and sells.There was a period of 7- 8 months I'd say of consistent sales on a daily basis then we had recently big MJ buying a few more. So today we are up nearly 3% but on what? And who. I'm just merely interested in the mechanics of who or what actually changes the share price stipulates I know market-makers can as well. Whether they physically push buttons I have no idea . Sometimes there can be buys and no share price movements likewise with sells . Would love to see the actual inside workings on the way is that share prices move like a documentary or something
the guardian: The rising price of WTI didn't seem to create a rise in CERP share price. Let's see what a fall in WTI does.
rossannan: Brasso3 I don’t think it is a reasonable MCAP for a company that produces 540bopd with turnover (not profit) of £8m - £9m. It is far too high unless you take CERP’s prospects into account. Not sure though that the CERP share price would (or at least should) take a beating just because production slips a little below the low case - the key things are remaining CF+, retaining a healthy cash balance and how planned future growth is to be funded. Funding and financial management are the key. BOPD and/or reserve increases mean nothing if they are bought with dilutive share issues or unaffordable debt. For example, if TXP’s production was shown in its next RNS to have slipped back to 1500bopd, its share price really would crater, even from where it is now, because of its very significant debt. If WF at Goudron turns out to be a slower burner than expected it’s not such a big deal because CERP has no significant debt.
rossannan: Garnhiem80CERP have now responded to my question online, confirming that the shares are Lind's to do with as they see fit at the end of the escrow period:Updated Questions to the Team General Corporate In your 11 September 2017 RNS you state that “The Company has granted Lind 17,992,308 shares, to be escrowed by Lind for at least six months from the date of issue (expected to be 23 September 2017).â€? Please confirm that at the end of the escrow period the 17,992,308 shares will be Lind’s to do with as they see fit. As confirmed in the RNS of 11 September 2017, the Company at that time had successfully re-negotiated certain terms of the Lind convertible security funding agreement which involved, amongst other changes, the granting of 17,992,308 shares to Lind to be held in escrow for at least six months. As part of this re-structuring Lind agreed to increase the conversion price for the first tranche of the loan that was outstanding from 3p per share to 4.5p per share. The Company also confirmed on 19 September 2017 that application for the above-mentioned shares, together with a further 2,307,692 shares relating to the repayment of loan due for the month of September, had been made to the London Stock Exchange and that it was expected that admission to trading and dealings in these shares would commence on 22 September 2017 (subject to the six-month escrow requirements of course). Management were very pleased with this re-negotiation which was extremely well received by the market and contributed within a month to an increase in Columbus’ share price and market cap by over 120% when compared to the share price on the day before the restructure was announced. The 17,992,308 shares currently represent approximately 2.9% of the total shares in issue at today’s date (12 January 2018). Apart from the requirement for Lind to escrow the 17,992,308 shares for at least six months, there were no other restrictions placed on Lind who are entitled to take whatever action they wish on those shares at the end of the six-month escrow period. That said, Lind maintain a very positive relationship with Columbus management and in a meeting in early December 2017 indicated that they were very pleased with the progress achieved by the Company in recent months and were very positive about the long-term potential. They also indicated that they would not take any action which would have a detrimental effect on the Company’s share price and were looking for further share price growth before they may consider taking any action on their shareholding. In addition, as mentioned in the RNS on 21 December 2017, the total debt outstanding to Lind at the end of 2017 had been reduced to approximately US$1.35 million. The Company has budgeted to meet all repayments due to Lind in 2018 in cash, although Lind retains the exclusive right to convert outstanding debt at 4.5 pence per share at any time of their choosing whilst the debt remains outstanding. Whilst Lind exercised their exclusive right in October 2017 to provide the Company with a second loan facility of US$750,000 that month (an amount which is included in the debt outstanding amount of US$1.35 million), Lind no longer have an exclusive right to provide any further funds to Columbus. To summarise, the Company is very happy with its relationship with Lind, who have been extremely supportive of the new strategy being undertaken by management, and is satisfied that Lind will act in a manner which ensures the Company’s share price is not detrimentally affected by any actions they may take in future.
