please see the link for description of PL partners in Paraguay. The chief of staff of Cartez and his partner is the key PPC partner in Paraguay. see below the recant discovery. no wonder the drilling keeps on getting delayed and delayed. hxxps://www.abc.com.py/nacionales/2022/07/05/en-2017-ya-ligaban-negocio-de-cartes-con-el-financiamiento-del-terrorismo/

I might hazard a guess based on what we learnt about the last drills in Paraguay. Some or all of these and possibly cost to negate. Unionised local labour, access roads, utilities, accommodation and logistics. Paraguay doesn't have oil drilling infrastructure or high skills so most everything is coming in for a one off drill. The fact that the drill rig had to be refurbished and modified plus and operated by an inexperienced crew doesn't inspire. The access roads being built will have to be to a good HGV standard just incase of success.

What is the general opinion on drilling costs in Paraguay? The Tapir 1 exploration well, at 3750 metres target depth, is not particularly deep, and is relatively close to our Salta fields in the Puesto Guardian Concession in Argentina. The original budget for the three Salta wells just drilled in Puesto Guardian was US$3.5 million each and, although the third well, PG-13, was not actually one of the originally planned wells, it was however successfully drilled to a target depth of 3,513 metres. Let's assume this well cost US$3.5 - US$4 million. So, why would the Tapir 1 well in Paraguay, at just 237 metres deeper than a well we have just successfully drilled just over the border in Argentina, cost in excess of US$10 million? And, would the rig that has just drilled the three successful wells in Salta, Argentina, likely to be the preferred choice to drill the Tapir 1 exploration well in Paraguay? Pp.

We have to pay 40% of the costs and the well should be $10m - $15m. The Jx-1 and Lx1 in 2014 ended up costing $25m each.

Total debt is now around $33m. What would happen to the profitability of PPC if the oil price dropped to $50/ barrel again now the major economies are entering a recession? Do we really want to go into a high risk drilling programme in Paraguay in Q4 with $33m in debt?

I assume they weren’t able to get anyone else to loan them that kind of money at the time as we were a bigger risk back then than we are now. Also by putting in the loan PL probably has a better chance to get some kind of returns for his investment. Further, if we’d have got the loan elsewhere they’d have wanted security which would further have limited PLs control. He’s put fortunes into PPC however if he hadn’t, he’d have likely lost what he’d put in at each point as funding was difficult to obtain each time. All IMVHO

With US operations generating very good revenue and profits at the moment it would easily cover debt reduction by $400k - $500k per month. Current USA revenue : 250 BOPD x $100 x 30 = $750k

I cannot understand how it can be that Peter Levine doesn't recognise that such a huge cash drain in interest payments, plus a pretty enormous personal salary, can be of any benefit to the Company. What would that total, US$2 million per year? In return, he presides over Company whose share price is creeping towards all time lows. I personally believe the current arrangement to be unacceptable.

If it was not for Trafigura coming in and forcing PPC/ IYA to convert $7m of the loan to equity I am sure it would still be sat around $20m.

PP There are three reasons that the rates are so high relative to current loan terms:- 1) The terms were agreed around 10 years ago when most interest rates were around 3% - 4%. 2) The debt is unsecured so it allows IYA to get a higher risk premium. 3) The debt is with a related company.

Can anyone actually explain why the interest rate on the IYA Loan is set so high? It obviously is not beneficial to the Company, or the majority of shareholders in the Company. It's just a major drain away of cash. Pp.

The current 6 month LIBOR rate is around 2.8%. Therefore our repayments are the following:- $16.5m at 10.5% + 2.8% = 13.3% $4.0 at 12.5% + 2.8% = 15.3% I was therefore being a bit too generous in my earlier post suggesting that the interest is 12.5%. The lowest we are paying at present will be above 13% and the rest at 15%.

The facility is repayable in December 2024. Further details on borrowings are given in Note 20.

Dismal beyond belief. How low will it go if the energy prices revert to normal. Getting 2 low interest bonds away in the past 6 months shows that there’s interest and the bond holders must have done enough due diligence to be convinced to invest. Why can’t the board market the company to the share buying world using the same info provided to the bond holders. If PLs loan went up by $200k in the year but he earned c$1.2m then he’s obviously had $1m in cash out of it. In his defence he could have done atome privately, outwith PPC.

You state in post 5720, Wayne, that "PL" is making US$1.4 million a year in interest payments on the loan. I assume by PL, you mean Peter Levine. Is this interest at 10.5% or 12.5% rate? You also now favour a share buy back arrangement, which I would also support. Another possibility to encourage wider interest in the Company...a cash dividend, combined with a slight twist. At this stupidly low share price let's say declare a 0.125 cent dividend (approximately 0.1 pence). One tenth of a penny. Not much, I accept, but the principle remains, whatever level is set (it obviously could be higher). This would cost approximately US$2.5 million. The twist...in order to restrict the total amount of cash actually paid out from the Company's free cash flow during the year, why not drastically reduce the interest rate on the loan, or even waive it completely for the year? This way, all shareholders would benefit from the dividend, including, of course, Peter Levine, with the added possibility it would also stimulate the share price, and so the shareholders, including Peter Levine, would benefit again. After all, Peter Levine would ultimately be far better off with a higher share price, and considerably better off with a share price that represents true value for the Company, than he ever would be with just the interest on the loan. As things stand, there cannot be any happy shareholders. Something needs to change. Pp.

I think Brasso has it right. Ppc is a vehicle for paying wages in Argentina and a high, stable, return on PL’s loan. Now and again, hopefully, a bit of activity outside of Argentina, which may reward investors. (Atome, poss Paraguay.) Activities in core/Argentina ppc will not reward us chumps.

By my calculations IYA has received $11m - $13m in interest payments from PPC now since the loan was first established.

The BoD do not look at the share price. It does not matter to them as they get paid regardless.
