Last month, Premier announced it had agreed to acquire the entire North Sea production assets from E.ON for $120 million in cash plus ‘completion adjustments’.
Its shares were temporarily suspended before Premier and E.ON agreed to reduce the completion adjustment to $15 million and the aggregate consideration for the transaction payable by Premier will now be $135 million. This is a result of an increase of the dividend paid to E.ON prior to completion.
By close of trading, Premier’s share price was up by nearly 90% to 36p.
