Tethys Oil: Tethys Oil sets new capital structure target

2015-08-18T07:20:00 CETIn light of Tethys Oil's strong operational and financial performance as well as the strong balance sheet, Tethys Oil's board of directors has set a new capital structure target for the company:

"Tethys Oil's primary objective is to create shareholder value and in doing so the company will have a balanced approach to growth and shareholder distributions, with a long term capital structure target of a zero net cash position."

"We expect the production and the reserves in our core area, Blocks 3 and 4 onshore Oman, to continue to grow. The strong cash flows we expect in combination with the strong balance sheet, will give ample room for both continued investments in our core area and for other growth opportunities as well as for cash distributions to shareholders and share buy-backs" comments Tethys Oil's managing director Magnus Nordin.

The new capital structure target replaces the previous targets:

  • Debt/equity ratio of 30-40%
  • Net debt /EBITDA of up to 2x
