Challenger Energy Group secured a significant boost with a £1.5 million strategic investment from Charlestown Energy Partners

Challenger Energy Group PLC (AIM:CEG, OTC:BSHPF), a leading exploration company concentrating on the Atlantic margin, has secured a significant boost with a £1.5 million strategic investment from Charlestown Energy Partners, a distinguished New York-based investment firm. This infusion of capital empowers Challenger to initiate technical initiatives on license AREA OFF-3, located offshore Uruguay, at the earliest feasible juncture.

Initially structured as a loan, this investment includes provisions for conversion into shares at a fixed price of 0.168 pence per share upon the successful closure of the AREA OFF-1 farm-out agreement with Chevron. This conversion rate represents an approximate 20% premium over the current share price, potentially resulting in Charlestown holding approximately 8.7% of Challenger’s shares, thereby becoming one of the largest shareholders.

Charlestown Energy Partners, renowned for its specialization in energy investments, has a track record of making cornerstone investments in listed exploration companies, including a recent lead investment in an energy firm focusing on Namibia.


As part of this collaboration, Robert Bose, managing member at Charlestown, will join the board of Challenger, bringing valuable insights and expertise to the company’s strategic endeavors.

With the anticipated completion of the farm-out to Chevron, expected to bring in $12.5 million in cash proceeds, Challenger is poised to be fully funded for future operations, eliminating the necessity for additional capital injection.
