Annual Report and Notice of AGM

The Company’s Annual Report for the year ended 31 December 2018 and Notice of Annual General Meeting will be posted to shareholders on Monday 24 June 2019 and will be available on the Company’s website at: https://edenville-energy.com/annual-reports/ on 24 June 2019..

The Company’s Annual General Meeting will be held at the offices of Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP, 4 More London Riverside, London, SE1 2AU at 11.00 a.m. on Tuesday 23 July 2019.

Commenting, Jeffrey Malaihollo, Chairman of Edenville Energy plc, said:

“2018 was a significant, but very challenging year for the Company. We made substantial progress, becoming a revenue producing commercial coal producer for the first time, although it has taken longer than we had hoped to overcome the challenges we faced and reach the positive position we are now in.

“Having gone through the operational and financial challenges in 2018 and early 2019, I believe the Company is now in the best position it’s been for many years. It is now a coal producing company, with a wide range of customers and monthly income. With the expected start of mining of the Northern Area in the coming weeks we remain on track to become cashflow positive within the next 10 months, targeting an initial 6,000 tonnes per month of washed coal production, which we consider to be a breakeven level, increasing to 10,000+ tonnes per month thereafter.”
