“The capital raised during this financing has major positive implications for the Company. First and foremost, the capital raised will cover the Company’s 2012 primary operating budget focused on drilling activities in the Kutai West PSC and the Sekayu PSC” commented Mr. Alan Charuk, CBM Asia’s CEO and President.
“Furthermore, this financing substantially broadens CBM Asia’s shareholder base and for the first time includes a number of prominent institutional investors from London, New York, Toronto, Vancouver and Hong Kong who understand the value proposition that the Company’s assets provide. The institutions have expressed strong support for management’s goal of continuing to expand the Company’s asset portfolio while at the same time de-risking its current projects.”
