It has been a news laden month for PILGRIM PETROLEUM COM STK USD1 (OTCMKTS:PGPM). On June 8th the company announced a new funding commitment of $3 million from certain insider(s). The CEO, Mr. Rafael A. Pinedo has confirmed no intent or plans to dilute, which has led people to speculate the company could be worth a considerable amount more than is perceived in the general public. The company also announced that this is the first of many funding events this year which will come from a mix of insiders and private investors.
This new capital commitment will allow the company to start production on their non-producing properties, acquire additional mineral rights and secure additional working interest. They expect it will bring transformative changes to the company, both on the corporate and strategic front. The primary focus is to allocate capital to the most compelling opportunities and strive to align their capital structure with their exploration strategy and through the rationalization of our non-core exploration prospects that no longer fit their selection and screening criteria.
Further to this, on June 19th PILGRIM PETROLEUM COM STK USD1 (OTCMKTS:PGPM) announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a share repurchase and retirement program of the Company’s outstanding common shares. The Board of Directors believes that a share repurchase program would be in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders, and will not impact the Company’s ability to execute its growth plans. Under the stock repurchase program, the Company and direct affiliates will be the only authorized to repurchase and based on market conditions. The repurchased shares will be constructively retired and returned to unissued status. “Share repurchase and dividends represent great ways to return value to our shareholders”.
