Repayment of Infrastrata Loan

 

Baron Oil PLC (AIM:BOIL) (“Baron” or “Company”) announces that Infrastrata plc (“Infrastrata”) has repaid the £200,000 drawn down on the secured loan facility provided by Baron.

Baron remains entitled to receive an additional £200,000 (the “Additional Payment”) in the event of a sale or disposal by InfraStrata or its subsidiaries, IMSL and InfraStrata UK, of substantially all of their assets, which comprise interests in the Islandmagee gas storage project, and/or a change in control of InfraStrata, IMSL or InfraStrata UK, within two years from the date of the loan agreement. In the event of a partial disposal of InfraStrata, IMSL or InfraStrata UK’s interests in the Islandmagee gas storage project (whereby InfraStrata and InfraStrata UK retain control of IMSL), the Additional Payment will be reduced to £100,000, with the remaining £100,000 payable in the event of a subsequent disposal or change in control of IMSL or the Islandmagee gas storage project during the two year period.
