Boystown you've got t add on the 600 million shares or so issued to eni. Cud be concerted drive down of the price knowing delek have to sell 3 percent of ithaca shares

Yes - seems a crazy price, so what's going on? I may get a few more tomorrow. One of two things has to happen - the share price rises or we're in for a big divi cut. But the ENI combination is pretty specific: "ambition for up to $500 million total dividends each year in 2024 and 2025" which makes c.39p a year in divis at current exchange rates acc to my calculations - or a yield of 34.5% at 112.8p to buy!?

Ithaca Energy plc ("Ithaca Energy", the "Company" or the "Group")



Transformational Combination of Ithaca Energy and substantially all of Eni S.p.A.'s ("Eni") UK Upstream Oil and Gas Assets,

Accelerating Growth and Value Creation



· UK Continental Shelf ("UKCS") powerhouse producing 100,000 - 110,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day[1]

· Agility of an Independent and capability of a Major, implementing Eni's regional satellite model

· Highly cash-generative combination providing material dividend capacity with ambition for up to $500 million total dividends each year in 2024 and 2025[2]

· Complementary portfolio unlocks potential for material long-term organic growth

· Platform for further inorganic growth in the UK and internationally

Gilad Myerson, Executive Chairman, Ithaca Energy, commented:

"The transformational combination with Eni UK will further enhance Ithaca Energy's position as a leading UKCS production and growth company, with positions in 6 of the 10 largest UKCS assets in the basin[3].

The synergistic combination with Eni's highly cash-generative UKCS portfolio has the ability to unlock our long-life organic growth opportunities creating a combined entity with substantial scale and longevity.

With Eni as a significant, long-term and supportive shareholder, the enlarged group will benefit from increased financial strength to support the execution of our BUY, BUILD and BOOST strategy and gain access to Eni's world-class technical capabilities and operational support. The combination will create a solid platform which can underpin material shareholder distributions, including an ambition to pay special dividends in 2024 and 2025, as well as future organic and inorganic growth2."



OVERVIEW OF THE COMBINATION

Ithaca Energy, a leading independent oil and gas operator in the UK North Sea is pleased to announce it has reached an agreement on a proposed combination with Eni in relation to substantially all of the upstream assets of Eni in the UK (the "Eni UK Business") in exchange for the issue of ordinary shares in Ithaca Energy to a subsidiary of Eni, Eni UK Limited ("Eni UK") (the "Combination"), such that at completion of the Combination ("Completion"), Eni UK will be issued ordinary shares representing 38.5% of the enlarged issued share capital of Ithaca Energy.

The Combination is expected to create a strategic platform for long-term growth in the United Kingdom North Sea combining Ithaca Energy's portfolio of development projects and efficient operating model with enhanced production and cash flow from the Eni UK Business and Eni's world-class technical expertise. The combination of Ithaca Energy and the Eni UK Business (together the "Combined Group") has the underlying un-risked potential to organically grow production to 150,000[4] boepd by the early 2030s, whilst supporting ongoing shareholder returns. The Combination is expected to be accretive per share to EBITDAX, CFFO and Profit, providing a platform for enhanced shareholder returns.



The portfolio of the Eni UK Business includes operated interests in 1 producing field: Cygnus (38.75% working interest); and non-operated interests in 10 producing fields: Elgin Franklin Area including Elgin, Franklin, West Franklin (21.867% working interest) and Glenelg (8% working interest), J-Area including Judy, Joanne, Jasmine (33% working interest) and Jade (7% working interest), Seagull (35% working interest) and Tommeliten A (0.07% working interest). The Combination excludes Eni UK East Irish Sea assets and CCUS activities.



In 2023, the Eni UK Business generated $775 million of EBITDA[5].



BACKGROUND TO AND REASONS FOR THE COMBINATION



Combination Highlights



The board of directors of Ithaca Energy (the "Ithaca Energy Board") believes the Combination represents a highly value-accretive opportunity for Ithaca Energy's shareholders, supporting delivery of Ithaca Energy's BUY, BUILD and BOOST strategy. The Combination:

- Cash tax guidance of $435 million to $455 million

- Ambition for up to $500 million total dividend in 20242



DETAILS OF THE COMBINATION



Key Transaction Terms



Based on the relative net asset valuations of Ithaca Energy and the Eni UK Business, agreed between Ithaca Energy and Eni, Eni will transfer the Eni UK Business to Ithaca Energy in exchange for the issuance of such number of new Ithaca Energy shares to Eni UK as is equal to 38.5 per cent of the fully diluted issued share capital of Ithaca Energy at Completion, subject to adjustment in respect of certain share option rights (the "Consideration Shares"), with existing Ithaca Energy shareholders owning the remaining 61.5 per cent of the share capital of the Combined Group (the "Merger Ratio").

Using the number of Ithaca Energy shares outstanding as at 23 April 2024, 635,013,542 Consideration Shares would be issued to Eni UK to reflect the Merger Ratio. Based on the closing share price of Ithaca Energy of 118.8p on 23 April 2024, the Consideration Shares are worth c. £754 million, although it should be noted that the Merger Ratio was determined between the parties on a relative net asset value basis rather than with reference to market share price.

The key terms of the Combination are set out in the business combination agreement entered into between Ithaca Energy, Eni UK and Neptune Energy Group Holdings Limited ("Neptune"), both subsidiaries of Eni (the "Business Combination Agreement").

The economic effective date for the Combination will be 30 June 2024, with Completion expected in Q3 2024, subject to the satisfaction of certain regulatory and other customary conditions precedent. Certain customary financial adjustments will be made for, amongst other things, cash, financial debt and working capital, each as at the economic effective date, to maintain the agreed Merger Ratio.



Free Float



As a consequence of the issue of the Consideration Shares to Eni UK, and Ithaca Energy's existing shareholder structure, the Combination would result in the number of ordinary shares in public hands being approximately 7 per cent., and below the minimum 10 per cent. as required by the listing rules issued by the Financial Conduct Authority (the "FCA") (the "Listing Rules"). Therefore, in order to ensure that the number of ordinary shares in public hands remains at or above 10 per cent., Delek has undertaken to use reasonable endeavours to sell down such number of ordinary shares representing approximately 3 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company (the "Delek Sell Down"), prior to Completion.



Delek will enter into a call option agreement with Eni UK pursuant to which Delek will have the option to require Eni UK to transfer to Delek such number of Consideration Shares as represents approximately 1 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company (the "Call Option"). Once the Delek Sell Down is complete, 10 per cent. of Ithaca Energy's ordinary shares will be held in public hands. Following this and assuming the Call Option is exercised, immediately after admission of the Consideration Shares to the Premium Listing segment, Delek will hold approximately 52.7 per cent. and Eni UK will hold 37.3 per cent. of Ithaca Energy's ordinary shares.



Rule 9 waiver



As Eni UK will hold between 30 per cent. and 50 per cent. of the voting rights of Ithaca Energy at Completion, a mandatory offer would normally be required under Rule 9 of the UK Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Takeover Code"), however, given that Delek will still hold shares carrying more than 50 per cent. of the voting rights following Completion, the UK Panel on Takeover and Mergers (the "Panel") has granted a dispensation from Rule 9 pursuant to note 5 (b) of Rule 9 under the Takeover Code and no such Rule 9 waiver is required.



Class 1



The Combination constitutes a Class 1 transaction for the purposes of the Listing Rules for Ithaca Energy. Ithaca Energy will issue a circular to its shareholders, in due course, in order to convene a general meeting to seek shareholder approval for the Combination and the allotment and issue of the Consideration Shares to Eni UK. In addition, Ithaca Energy will publish and make available a prospectus in connection with the issue of the Consideration Shares.



The Profit Before Tax and Gross Assets the subject of the transaction for the year end 31 December 2023 were £444 million and £2,062 million respectively.



Lock-up



Eni UK's shareholding in Ithaca Energy will be subject to a 180 day lock-up period from admission of the Consideration Shares (subject to customary exceptions).





Relationship Agreements and Corporate Governance



Eni Relationship Agreement



At Completion, Eni will enter into a relationship agreement with Ithaca Energy (the "Eni Relationship Agreement") on substantially similar terms to the Delek Group Limited ("Delek") relationship agreement amended and restated on the date of this announcement with Ithaca Energy (the "Delek Relationship Agreement"). The Eni Relationship Agreement will entitle Eni, for so long as it directly or indirectly holds more than 20% of the Combined Group's issued share capital, the right to appoint two non-executive directors to the Ithaca Energy Board, for so long as it directly or indirectly holds greater than 10% (but not more than 20%) of the Combined Group's issued share capital, the right to appoint one non-executive director to the Ithaca Energy Board, and for so long as it holds greater than 25% of the Combined Group's issued share capital, to appoint one observer to the Remuneration Committee and the Audit and Risk Committee; and appoint one director, or failing which an observer to the Nomination and Governance Committee.

From Completion, under the Delek Relationship Agreement, Delek will, for so long as it directly or indirectly holds at least 30% of the Combined Group's issued share capital, and until the later of the proposed CEO nominated by Eni ceases to be the CEO and 3 years from Completion, have the right to appoint three non-executive directors.

Eni will be entitled to recommend the nomination of the next proposed CEO of the Combined Group in accordance with the policies and processes of Ithaca Energy's Nomination and Governance Committee, such appointment to take effect from Completion.

The Ithaca Energy Board is committed to robust standards of corporate governance and to maintaining a sound framework for the control and management of the Group. As such, the Company is actively recruiting for additional independent non-executive directors to join the Ithaca Energy Board prior to or from Completion.



Conditions to Closing

Closing of the Combination is subject to, amongst other things:

· Ithaca Energy shareholder approval at a general meeting convened pursuant to an FCA-approved circular;

· FCA and London Stock Exchange approval of the admission of the Consideration Shares;

· satisfaction of certain regulatory approvals in the UK; and

· completion of certain pre-sale reorganization steps in relation to the Eni UK assets.



Key termination provisions

The Business Combination Agreement can be terminated in a number of limited circumstances. Eni UK and Neptune can terminate the Business Combination Agreement if the Ithaca Energy Board changes or withdraws its recommendation, or if Ithaca Energy shareholders do not approve the Combination, or if Ithaca Energy fails to publish the prospectus or circular once it has been approved by the FCA. All parties have customary termination rights for material breaches of certain interim period covenants and in circumstances where a third-party offer is made under the Takeover Code and is recommended by the Ithaca Energy Board.

Completion of the Combination is expected to occur in Q3 2024.



Ithaca Energy Board Recommendation and Undertakings



The Ithaca Energy Board have determined that the Combination is in the best interests of Ithaca Energy based on a number of factors and intend unanimously to recommend that shareholders vote in favour of the relevant resolutions at the shareholder meeting to be held to approve the Combination and the allotment and issue of the Consideration Shares to Eni UK, amongst other things.



Each of the members of the Ithaca Energy Board holding Ithaca Energy shares, has irrevocably undertaken that they will vote in favour of the relevant resolutions required to implement the Combination at the shareholder meeting in respect of their own beneficial holdings of Ithaca Energy shares, representing approximately 0.2 per cent. of the existing share capital of Ithaca Energy as at 23 April 2024, being the last practicable date prior to publication of this announcement.



Delek has irrevocably undertaken to vote in favour of the relevant resolutions required to implement the Combination at the Ithaca Energy shareholder meeting in respect of its holding of Ithaca Energy shares, representing 88.5 per cent. of the existing share capital of Ithaca Energy as at 23 April 2024, being the last practicable date prior to publication of this announcement.

Thanks Autumn. The current share price would certainly make more sense if the '24 divi was to be just 12p. It stays on the watch list for now. One to buy if a summer pullback coincides with the necessary cash in the ISA.

Kibes/Lord Gnome

Next years production estimate 56/61 form 70.2 bopd for 2023. Opex increasing to
$540/590 form $524, also Rosebank capex increasing from $97 to $190/230.
I've pencilled in dividend of $150 million/£120 million, so around 12p per share.
That's still 9.5/10% at current share price.
Production increasing form 2026/27, Rosebank capex reducing. Opex per barrel $20
or below.
Think I'm being pessimistic with my dividend forecast, however from 2025 onwards
could return to around current levels.
Bought a few more myself this week, around £1.16.

Best estimates that I can come up with are from Stocko. Free cash flow this year was circa 80 cents per share. Assuming the same next year, then 30% of this would be 24 cents per share total dividend for the year. Stocko or whoever, agrees with my reasoning as they are predicting total dividends of 24.8 cents for 2024. Near as damit is to swearing, I make that 20p, so another two dividends of 10p each. Might not be totally accurate, but it is a good working estimate. Currently debating with myself as to whether to buy a few and see how it goes.
Posted at 04/4/2024 07:55 by kibes
If the dividend is going to remain at 10p paid quarterly that is 40p/year for a share currently worth 120p. That doesn't look viable to me so either a) Ithaca is grossly undervalued by a factor of at least 3 times or b) they will cut the dividend. I don't know which is the case. And a lot of fuss is made about UK taxes now running at 75% but in fact in Norway they have always been 78% and nobody complains?

Windfall tax puts Cambo decision in doubt: Ithaca
Ithaca Energy's executive chair tells Investors' Chronicle that financiers have backed away from the North Sea
February 28, 2023
By Alex Hamer
Ithaca Energy (ITH) picked an interesting time to come back to public life. Its first five months since November's initial public offering (IPO) have seen oil and gas prices drop at the same time as the UK government ramped up its energy profits levy (EPL).
As a result, the company's share price is down a quarter from its IPO price of 250p, a drop similar to those sustained by other North Sea-exposed companies like Harbour Energy (HBR) and Serica Energy (SQZ) over the same period.
Executive chair Gilad Myerson told Investors’ Chronicle the EPL had taken the air out of the sector even with the government calling for greater domestic oil and gas supply. “Since the listing, we’ve faced quite some headwinds coming from the UK government,” he said, adding that Ithaca was “very committed” to developing its assets and to the North Sea specifically.
Prime minister Rishi Sunak brought in the windfall tax on energy company profits as chancellor, then expanded it in November once he moved into 10 Downing St. The levy was hiked from 25 per cent to 35 per cent, bringing the headline tax rate for UK oil and gas producers to 75 per cent.
The move was aimed at raising cash to fund the government’s cost of living support programmes such as the energy price guarantee. But industry figures have argued that the lack of an end date, and lack of a price floor below which the tax would disappear, had hurt investment at a time when energy security and supply remains a top concern for the UK.
Ithaca is at the centre of this discussion as it is considering a green light for the Cambo and Rosebank fields, the largest undeveloped fields in the UK North Sea. Cambo is more significant for Ithaca as it holds a 70 per cent stake and is the operator of the asset. Ithaca also has a 30 per cent stake in Rosebank, which is operated by Equinor (NO:EQNR). Cambo is expected to be a huge field when operational, producing tens of thousands of barrels of oil per day.
The final investment decision was expected in the first half of this year but comments by Myerson cast doubt on that timeline: “The readiness to hit the FID approval has gone down quite significantly because of a lack of financing,” he said.
“The challenge is that the credit availability to develop these projects has been reduced significantly. The [reserve-based lending] is run using an oil price of $50-$54 a barrel, and if you add a 75 per cent tax rate at $52 a barrel [average], it leaves you with very little credit availability to develop a project."
Going north
Previous roadblocks for the two fields were part of the reason why Ithaca was able to acquire its stakes in the first place. It acquired ownership via a takeover of Siccar Point Energy for $1.46bn last year ($1.1bn upfront), and after Shell (SHEL) had publicly said it would not back the development of the Cambo field, albeit this was before the energy crisis. The energy giant’s 30 per cent stake is reportedly up for grabs.
Barclays analyst James Hosie said the EPL introduction and extension had “shifted the investment climate for companies like Ithaca, with the value of UK upstream assets further eroded by worries that it becomes a permanent part of UK upstream taxation”.
In its IPO prospectus, Ithaca was positive about the investment allowance aspects of the EPL policy, which also cuts the tax paid for companies spending big on North Sea development. Myerson said meetings with the government before the listing had indicated this would be a fixture of the strategy in order to encourage more development.
The investment allowance was reduced in the Autumn Statement by chancellor Jeremy Hunt, and Labour has campaigned to remove it entirely. “We were seen as an organisation that would be shielded from the EPL due to the [investment allowance provisions],” said Myerson.
Ithaca 2.0
The company that now trades as Ithaca is very different to the one that Delek Group took over and delisted in 2017. Its production is around eight times the company’s 2016 production of 9,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd), and the various development options could take it over 100,000boepd.
Delek still holds just under 90 per cent of the company. Harbour Energy, which itself listed 2021 and had one significant shareholder in EIG Asset Management, has managed to open up its share register without major share sales derailing its share price.
If a similar move is on the cards for Ithaca, it could not happen before May, when a lock-up on Delek share sales ends. Myerson said the Israeli company was a dedicated long-term shareholder.
One other point of interest for potential shareholders will be the balance sheet - the company has focused on paying down debt in recent months, including the intragroup loans advanced by Delek. These have largely been paid down, and Barclays forecasts a net debt reduction from $1.1bn (£910mn) at the end of 2022 to just $193mn by the end of this year. But the plan is to load up on debt again to enable building on a variety of projects, if possible, so this may shoot up again in the coming years.
Hosie, who has an underweight rating on the company, said the forecast debt level would leave the company “well positioned to commit to the planned increase in capital investments and dividend policy”. The dividend yield is one of the highest on the London Stock Exchange at its current share price - a whopping 18 per cent for 2023, as forecast by Barclays.
