Just gets better!! V1

It has come to the attention of the Molopo Board that a payment in the sum of AUD 670,800.19
initiated by the Company through its bank to a well-known creditor has been misdirected to a third
party account advised to it through what appeared to be a legitimate email communication from the
creditor that was subsequently identified to be a suspected fraudulent email. The Company is
attempting to trace the fictitious email and banking details and will take whatever action is
necessary to recover these funds. The Board will advise further when information is available.
This announcement was approved by the Chair of the Company.

This saga seems to just keep on keeping on!! Totally disgusting. V1

Molopos shares have been suspended from trading since 27 July 2017 due to the level of its
operations not being, in ASXs opinion, sufficient to warrant the continued quotation of its securities
in compliance with Listing Rule 12.1.
ASX Guidance Note 33 deals with the removal of a Company from the Official List if its shares have
remained suspended for a period of two years.
Following a previous application to ASX by Molopo, the ASX confirmed an extension to the deadline
for Molopos removal was on the basis that it afforded Molopo the opportunity to demonstrate to
ASX that it is in the final stages of implementing a transaction that will lead to the resumption of
trading of its securities. For these purposes, being in the final stages of implementing a transaction
means that the Company has completed the requirements referred to in Guidance Note 33.
The ASX has now considered the Companys submissions on the progress of Molopos Victorian
Supreme Court proceedings against former Molopo directors and, given the present circumstances,
the ASX has agreed to further extend the deadline from 1 September 2020 to 28 February 2021 to
afford Molopo the opportunity to demonstrate to ASX that it is in the final stages of implementing
a transaction that will lead to the resumption of trading of its securities.
Whilst the current Molopo Directors recognise that this is extremely frustrating for shareholders, the
Molopo Board will address the Companys listing on ASX once the litigation proceedings against the
former Directors are completed.

They seem determined to get access to MPO's $67 m cash box.

TAKEOVER ANNOUNCEMENT
27 July 2017
QUOTE
Aurora Fortitude Absolute Return Fund (AFARF) announces cash and/or scrip takeover bid for
Molopo Energy Limited (ASX:MPO)

Proposal
Aurora Funds Management Limited (Aurora) as responsible entity of the Aurora Fortitude Absolute Return
Fund ARSN 145 894 800 (AFARF) is intending to make an off-market takeover bid under chapter 6 of the
Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) for all the issued fully paid ordinary shares in Molopo at a bid price of $0.18
each.

The bid price is 33.8% above the 30 day volume weighted average price (VWAP), 27.5% above the 60 day
VWAP and 14.9% above the 90 day VWAP, of Molopo shares ending on 26 July 2017, as well as a 28.6%
premium to the closing sale price of Molopo shares on that day. The directors of Aurora believe that the
proposed bid will provide an attractive alternative to the current uncertainty and lack of strategic direction at
Molopo.

If Aurora is able to gain control of Molopo, it intends to seek to return a material amount of capital to Molopo
shareholders, subject to a careful review of the company’s liabilities. Remaining cash assets would then be
prudently invested until the resolution of Molopo’s litigation, at which point further capital returns would be
considered.

Payment of the bid consideration to those accepting Molopo shareholders who elect to receive AFARF units1
would be satisfied by the issue of the units with a unit value equal to the bid consideration. Unit value would
be determined in accordance with the constitution of AFARF, which provides for an objective valuation
methodology as required by section 601GA(1)(a) of the Corporations Act. Payment of the bid consideration
in cash would be subject to a cap of $5 million in total. Acceptances for cash consideration that in aggregate
exceed $5 million would be scaled back, with the balance of the bid consideration satisfied by the issue of
AFARF units.

The proposed bid would be subject to a range of defeating conditions which are summarised in the schedule
to this announcement.

1 Units may be of an existing class or a new class created for the purposes of the bid.
Summary

▪ We intend to make a takeover bid for 100% of the ordinary shares in Molopo Energy Limited (Molopo)
at $0.18 each.

▪ Under the bid, Molopo shareholders will be able to elect to receive the bid consideration in cash
(capped at $5 million in total) or the equivalent value in AFARF units.

▪ Accepting Molopo shareholders who elect to receive AFARF units will be able to request redemption
of the units off-market at the prevailing net asset value based redemption price in accordance with
AFARF’s constitution and Fund updates.

▪ On 7 June 2017 Molopo notified the market that ASX requires it to demonstrate a sufficient level of oil
and gas operations by 31 July 2017, to warrant the continued quotation of its shares and its continued
listing. On 25 July 2017 shares in Molopo were suspended from trading pending an announcement
about a strategic investment. No further details have been provided at this stage. Accordingly,
AFARF’s bid will provide an opportunity for Molopo shareholders to achieve superior value at a
material premium to the current market price of Molopo shares and enhanced liquidity in circumstances
where Molopo’s outlook and continued listing is uncertain, with potentially no readily available market
for Molopo shares.

After all the previous drama, MPO is now in a trading halt pending announcement of strategic investment - let's hope for shareholders they've found that "brilliant investment"

Nick Bolton's Molopo cash box raid will prove costly as ASIC prepares for share sale

QUOTE
Molopo shares closed on Friday at 12¢. The broker will have up to six months to dispose of the stock, which amounts to 16 per cent of Molopo's issued shares.

That sort of overhang should do wonders for the share price unless the Molopo board find a brilliant investment for the company's $67 million cash pile

QUOTE
In an application to the Takeovers Panel yesterday, the Australian Securities & Investments Commission asked for orders forcing Keybridge Capital and its former subsidiary, Aurora Funds Management, to reduce their combined stake in Molopo, which has $67 million in the bank, to below 20 per cent.

ASIC said that, contrary to a recently released statement, Keybridge remained associated with Aurora despite selling the funds management business in July last year. The regulator alleges the combined Keybridge-Aurora shareholding of 37.33 per cent contravenes the takeovers provisions of the Corporations Act.

Mr Bolton was chief executive of Keybridge, which owns 19.4 per cent of Molopo, until December 2015. He was forced aside because ASIC slapped him with a three-year ban from running corporations over breaches of directors' duties involving 13 companies. However, his father, John, is Keybridge's largest shareholder, with almost 22 per cent of the company.

Aurora, which owns 17.9 per cent of Molopo, is now owned by former Ernst & Young partner John Patton, who is also chairman of Keybridge. Mr Patton bought Aurora last year for $750,000 — a far cry from the $4.3m Keybridge paid for it 18 months earlier.

Keybridge proposes ditching the existing five-person board and installing as directors its three nominees, including former securities regulator Tony Hartnell, at a shareholder meeting to be held on May 15.

Mr Hartnell was chairman of ASIC's predecessor, the Australian Securities Commission, between 1991 and 1993. He is now a partner at the law firm he co-founded, Atanaskovic Hartnell. Another partner at the firm, Jeremy Kriewaldt, is also on the Keybridge board.

ASIC has asked the Takeovers Panel to, as a first step, stop Keybridge and Molopo voting their shares or buying any more.

The regulator wants the panel to then bring the situation to an end by ordering Keybridge and Aurora to sell all the Molopo shares they have bought since July 4 last year and prohibit them from buying any more Molopo shares if that would take their combined holding over 20 per cent.

Lousy 1million !!! grrr.gif

MOLOPO ENERGY AGREES TO SELL FIESTA ASSETS
Molopo Energy Limited (“Molopo” or the “Company”) (ASX:MPO) is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement to sell its Fiesta assets located in Crockett
County, Texas for proceeds of US$1 million.
These properties are the final remaining piece of the value maximization process commenced by Molopo just over two years ago, and represent the only producing
assets the Company owns. They were not providing positive cash flow to the Company and were not part of the Company’s go forward plan. There are several
costly capital expenditure programs that would need to have been undertaken had the Company continued to own the properties. Once the sale is finalized, there will
be a material reduction in the Company overhead, as the costs associated with managing and reporting these operations will no longer be required.
The transaction, which is subject to customary due diligence, is expected to close by the end of January 2015.
Canaccord Genuity acted as exclusive financial adviser to Molopo on the sale.

Originating Process Filed in Response to requests under section 249D of the Corporations Act 2001 Molopo Energy Limited (“Molopo”) advises that it has filed an originating process in the Supreme Court of New South Wales in relation to the requests from Keybridge Capital Limited (Keybridge) for the directors to convene general meetings of shareholders of Molopo which were the subject of ASX announcements by Molopo on 13 November 2014 and 20 November 2014.
The originating process seeks a declaration that the directors are not required to call a general meeting in response to a request received from Keybridge which is purported to be pursuant to
Section 249D of the Corporations Act 2001(Cth) to consider resolutions relating to a capital reduction (which was the subject of Molopo's ASX announcement on 13 November 2014) and that
the time period of 21 days for the directors to convene a meeting of shareholders in response to the request be extended until the Court has determined the validity of the request. Similar orders
are sought in relation the further request received by Molopo from Keybridge relating to changes to the directors the subject of Molopo's ASX announcement dated 20 November 2014.
