Statement re: Press Comment


Cluff Natural Resources Plc, the AIM quoted natural resources investing company with a high impact exploration and appraisal portfolio focused on the Southern North Sea gas basin, notes the recent media speculation and advises that in response to investor demand and following the Company's recent success in the UK's 30th Offshore Licencing Round culminating in the provisional award of 10 oil and gas blocks in the Central and Southern North Sea, it is currently considering the merits of raising additional funding by way of a new equity issue, primarily to accelerate the development of the Company's enlarged portfolio of assets.


Neither the amount to be raised nor the issue price have been finally determined whilst discussions with investors are ongoing.


There can be no certainty that this fundraising will be concluded nor as to the timing or terms of such, but a further announcement will be made as required as soon as possible.
