He however noted that, the company has lost 18% to 16% of its share value in the last twelve months explaining that the movement in share prices is global and partly driven by the fluctuating oil prices. “In case oil prices change just like other commodities do that will be reflected in the line share pricing” he said

Ridge noted that, if the market is difficult and share prices are going down investors are obliged to look for other ways of financing and the deal that Swala entered with Tata Petrodyne was one such way of alternatively financing Swala developments.

“Despite the fall of oil prices, Tata was willing to seal the deal that ensured that we will be able to sell some equity to a new participant. In our agreement, Tata will pay us a portion of past costs that will enable us to get an additional $6 million from $7.5 million which will go a long way in financing our operational costs”, said Dr Ridge.

“Tata Petrodyne will also pay part of our drilling costs up to about $4 million to $4.5 million and if we are successful in Kilombero they will pay another $1 million to work on exploration which brings the total value of the deal to stand at $12.5 million. In this regard, we do not have to raisemore equity at the time when the share prices have not come to its ideal prices,” he added.
