Hedging Facility Update


Nostra Terra (AIM:NTOG), the oil and gas exploration and production company with a portfolio of assets in the USA and Egypt, announces the following:


As previously announced on 26 September 2017, Nostra Terra has secured a hedging facility with BP Energy Company ("the hedging facility"). In response to queries from investors, the board of the Company (the "Board") can confirm that it intends to utilise the hedging facility primarily in conjunction with lending facilities to enable increased funds to be made available to the Company.  


In addition, as Nostra Terra has been able to demonstrate a track record of stable and secure oil production, BP Energy Company has waived its margin requirement.  As a result, the Company's working capital position can be improved because the Company will not be required to hold cash on margin.


The hedging facility includes an inter creditor agreement to work seamlessly with Nostra Terra's existing $25,000,000 senior lending facility with Texas Capital Bank ("the TCB Facility"). This could also be applied to any other potential new senior lending facility. Nostra Terra has gone to great lengths over recent years to maintain the TCB Facility in good standing, with this goal in mind.


However, having now secured the hedging facility with BP Energy Company, the Board believes the Company is in a better funding position than it anticipated to be able to deliver its growth strategy. Nostra Terra is currently in discussions with three banks, including Texas Capital Bank, to ensure it has the best facility in place not just for immediate growth plans but also those over the coming years.


Nostra Terra expects to provide an update concerning this in the coming weeks.


This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014.
