GIC Private Limited Subscribes to Green Dragon Gas Convertible

Green Dragon Gas Ltd., a producer and distributor of Coal Bed Methane (CBM) to China, launched a convertible bond facility up to US$ 100 million. The first tranche of US$ 35 million has been subscribed by Singapore’s GIC Private Limited. The last tranche is expected to be issued on or before January 31, 2014.

The convertible bond is unsecured with a 7 percent coupon. The bond is due December 2015 and is convertible into ordinary shares at a conversion price of US$ 6.06 per share.
The tranche capital will be used for Green Dragon’s 2014 LiFaBriC drilling plan and working capital needs.

From the press release, Jason Triplitt, head of European equities, GIC Asset Management, stated: “GIC sees long term value in the Coal Bed Methane (CBM) industry in China, GDG’s extraction methodologies, gas resources and the further development of its licence blocks. We look forward to our investment into the company benefitting from its continued growth and crystallization of value after a decade of effort and experiences in the China CBM sector.”

On December 12, Green Dragon entered into a binding Memorandum of Undersatnding (MoU) with Petrochina Company Ltd. confirming its participating interests in the Chengzhuang block, a block included within the Shizhuang South Production Sharing Contract.
