The offering was led by Research Capital Corporation as the sole underwriter and sole bookrunner.

“I am pleased to have closed this financing, and grateful to both existing and new shareholders who have recognized the value proposition presented by an investment in Valeura shares as we evolve to become a significant Thailand oil producer,” said Sean Guest, President and CEO of Valeura.

“At the same time, our growth ambitions remain on track, including our planned acquisition of the Thailand upstream oil producing portfolio of Mubadala Energy by our 87.5%-owned subsidiary company, which we anticipate will close in Q1 2023, as previously announced,” he added.

The company plans to use the the proceeds from the offering to fund pre-production operations at the Wassana field, Thailand, to kick-off the Wassana infill drilling program scheduled to begin in Q2 2023, and for general corporate purposes.
