Sterling Energy books loss; eyes acquisition opportunities

By BFN News | 07:44 AM | Friday 18 September, 2020

Oil company Sterling Energy booked a first-half loss as it continued to develop prospects in Africa and the Middle East. Pre-tax losses for the six months through June amounted to $0.87m, compared to losses of $0.60m on-year. Sterling said it continued to assist with the progression of technical work assessing the Odewayne block in Somaliland. Cash resources at the end of June were $43.8m, up from $45.5m on-year. Sterling said it remained well financed and was positioned to take advantage of acquisition opportunities during current testing market conditions. 'Our ability to filter opportunities quickly in a congested market, combined with the leverage our cash balance allows, provides confidence that we can secure a deal,' the company said.
