What a set of releases by Petroceltic International (PCI) this morning! Together with its Annual Report (found here) and notice of its AGM, the company delivered a hat-trick of failed exploration wells in one announcement (in Kurdistan, Romania and Egypt) and then mounted a robust defence against public criticisms made by the company’s major shareholder Worldview Capital Management, which holds 19.91% of the company. Worldview’s complaints can be found here, but they concern the proposed $100million placement arranged by Petroceltic’s board. In short, Worldview is not happy and it looks like a race is now on for the future control of Petroceltic.
