The silence from New World Oil & Gas (NEW) is deafening. It’s been a week since I first revealed that CEO and Chairman Bill Kelleher’s February 2011 $550,000 default on a loan, which he secured against his private yacht Neftegaz. The company hasn’t sent its lawyers into battle nor made any attempt to deny the allegations. By mid-January this year, Mr Kelleher still owed $298,000 on the debt, despite having earned $1.56million from New World. A Texan court then ordered he surrender all of his eligible stock in New World in partial settlement of the loan. None of this has been announced to the market. I have previously asked what the company’s Nominated Advisor, Beaumont Cornish, knew about this. Today, I reveal what they should have known and question whether the historical relationship with Mr Kelleher has clouded the firm’s professional judgement.
