Bromborough sale now complete

D1 Oils plc

Bromborough sale now completed

The Board of D1 Oils plc ("D1 Oils" or the "Company") today announces the completion of the sale of the Bromborough site. 

As announced on 24 June, the buyer had informed the Board that there was a material risk that it would not be funded to perform its obligations under a possible revised structure to that agreed in binding terms and announced on 4 February.  Accordingly the Board decided to continue discussions for a further short period, whilst taking legal steps to enforce its contractual rights.  Since this time the buyer has been successful in firming up its sources of funding for the acquisition of Bromborough.

The Company can now confirm that it has received £2.2m of cash from the buyer.  The Company will apply £0.4m of the £2.2m receipt to fund its obligation to account for VAT to HMRC.  The Board anticipates that the buyer will be able to recover £0.4m of VAT from HMRC in due course and the buyer has agreed to pass on such receipt to the Company. 

The buyer has also agreed to pay the Company a net royalty, which will be capped at £0.4m plus VAT, based on Bromborough's future production volumes of biodiesel.  The buyer's production plans indicate that the Company should receive these payments during the next two to three years.  However, the Board anticipates that the precise magnitude and timing of any royalty payments will depend on the commercial success of the buyer in managing a range of factors and so there remains a material risk to recovery.  All other particulars of the sale remain as announced on 4 February.
