Blencowe Resources Plc was incorporated in England and Wales on 18 September 2017 and was formed to undertake the acquisition of a target company or business (the "Acquisition").
Following completion of an Acquisition, the objective of the Company will be to operate the acquired business and implement an operating strategy with a view to generating value for its Shareholders through operational improvements as well as potentially through additional complementary acquisitions following the Acquisition. Following the Acquisition, the Company intends to seek re‐admission of the enlarged group to listing on the Official List and trading on the London Stock Exchange or admission to another stock exchange.
The Company's efforts in identifying a prospective target company or business will be primarily limited to both exploration companies and production companies in the natural resources sector in South East Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. However, the Directors will not exclude any target company with growth potential in any other sector or jurisdiction.
In assessing the potential Acquisition, the Board will pay particular attention to the following overriding factors:
· the existence of production and/or potential production which will over time provide cash flow for the business;
· strong exploration potential in known natural resources producing areas;
· the quality of the management; and
· an established track record of developing natural resources assets.
