Robert Rayne, Chairman, commented

“The first six months of 2021 have shown further progress including profitable realisations from our existing portfolio and continuing to execute our annual dividend policy. The continued regulatory delay to Dacian, the Romanian oil and gas company in which we have committed to invest, is frustrating and we are working hard to conclude the deal. We continue to look actively for the right opportunities to develop our deal pipeline and deploy capital in our chosen areas.”
