Audited Results and Notice of AGM

 

Business review

The principal activity of the Company during the year was that of an investment holding company.

The results for the year are a reflection of the minimal cost of keeping your Company administered whilst continuing to search for suitable opportunities. The actual costs were £54,130 (2016: £36,862) adjusted for currency gains of £16,147 (2016: £13,277).  Your directors have maintained most funds in US Dollars as that is the currency they anticipate any deal is likely to be conducted in.

The loss for the year amounted to £37,893 (2016: £23,585).

The directors have not recommended a dividend.

During the year the Company continued to restructure the business and alongside this restructuring has investigated potential investments in line with the Company's stated Investing Policy.

Paul Johnson, then CEO of Metal Tiger PLC, became a Non-Executive Director of MetalNRG PLC in March 2016 to assist with business development alongside the Chairman Christopher Latilla-Campbell and Non-Executive Director Christian Schaffalitzky de Muckadell.

At a General Meeting in March 2016, shareholders approved a capital reorganisation and the implementation of a new Investing Policy.  This Investing Policy includes the following:

”to invest in and/or acquire companies and/or projects within the natural resources and/or energy sector with potential for growth and value creation, over the medium to long term. The Company will also consider opportunities in other related sectors if the Board considers there is an opportunity to generate an attractive return for Shareholders. This will include natural resource technologies and fintech opportunities offering leverage to resource identification, processing, recording, storage and trading businesses.”
