In March 2013, one month before the company announced it had plugged and abandoned the non-commercial Rio Bravo exploration well, New World Oil and Gas (NEW) conducted a highly controversial £6.3million placement at 2p. The controversy stemmed from two sources. First, there was the suspicion that this placement was heavily forward sold, which resulted in the calamitous price. Second, New World lent vehicles controlled by its three executive directors a combined sum of $1million so they could participate in the deeply discounted placement. CEO William Kelleher borrowed $333,000 from the company and the outstanding balance on this amount is due at the end of this month. After yesterday’s revelation of the Texas Community Bank’s legal action against him for nonpayment of >$550,000 in February 2011, will Mr Kelleher repay the money he controversially borrowed?
