Path Investments plc

("Path" or the "Company)

Intention to Float on the London Stock Exchange

Path Investments plc, an energy investment company, is pleased to announce its intention to seek admission of its ordinary shares to the standard listing segment of the Official List and to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange ("Admission").  Shard Capital is acting as Broker and Financial Adviser to the company in relation to the Admission which is expected to take place on or around 30 March 2017.

Company Strategy

The objective of Path Investments is to acquire oil and gas production, or near production, assets which possess a lower risk profile than exploration or development assets. Path Investments has a highly experienced management team with many years experience of assessing and investing in a number of small to medium sized projects.

Path Investments has a global focus on energy assets, currently concentrating on the onshore oil and gas markets. Against the background of a sharp decline in the oil price over the last three years, the Directors believe this has provided a significant opportunity to acquire interests in assets owned by financially distressed exploration led oil and gas companies. Where possible Path will make direct investments in assets in order to establish a greater degree of control over risk management, investment decisions and cash flows.

Path's overarching aim is to create a diversified portfolio of assets, mindful of the maturity of asset development, the duration of income stream and the potential for growth.

Investments under consideration feature:


Cash flow generation, principally targeting production or near production assets.


Opportunities in understood, politically stable and fiscally attractive geographies.


Transformation of distressed, underperforming, or mispriced assets into high quality, marketable assets through active asset management.



It is expected that Admission will become effective and dealings in the Ordinary shares on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities will commence on or around 30 March 2017 under the TIDM "PATH" and ISIN GB00BYQD5059.


The Prospectus, which has been approved by the UK Listing Authority, has been published on the Company's website at and is also available at the FCA's Document Storage Mechanism at Hard copies of the Prospectus will also be available during normal business hours at the office of the Company's Broker and Financial Adviser, Shard Capital, at 23rd Floor, 20 Fenchurch St, London EC3M 3BY.

Christopher Theis, Chief Executive of Path Investments, commented: "We are delighted to be listing Path Investments. The exacerbated fall in oil prices over the last three years has created an opportunity for well capitalised companies to exploit. We have established a very strong management team at Path Investments and have a significant pipeline of potential deals to examine. Our intention is to be highly selective in our approach, seeking out cash flow producing assets in attractive geographies and we look forward to reporting on our progress."
