Letter to shareholders

Dear Friends and Fellow Shareholders of Maha Energy AB,

We are pleased to announce that throughout the third quarter of 2022, the Company has completed a number of important changes in its board of directors and executive management positions, enhancing Maha’s governance structure and leadership. First, the shareholders of Maha resolved to elect Fabio Vassel, Paulo Thiago Mendonça and Enrique Peña as new ordinary board members until the next annual general meeting to be held in 2023, replacing Jonas Lindvall, Nicholas Walker, and Christer Lindholm, and to elect Fabio as chairman of the board, replacing Harald Pousette who will remain as an ordinary member of the board of directors. The new board members are representatives of Starboard Group, a Brazilian private equity firm with significant experience and a strong track record in the oil and gas business, especially in the Brazilian market.

Starboard was the architect and creator of 3R Petroleum, a Brazilian independent oil and gas company listed on the Brazilian Stock Exchange with a current market cap of over USD 2 billion. 3R was the most successful participant in Petrobras’ divestment program, raising more than USD 2 billion in equity and debt. Paulo and Fabio are former chairmen and board members of 3R and were paramount in developing 3R into one of the leading junior oil companies in Latin America.

The new board has appointed Paulo Mendonça as the new CEO of the Company and Bernardo Guterres as the new CFO. Along with his experience at 3R, Paulo has also led over USD 5 billion in significant transactions in the O&G industry. Prior to this, Paulo was Head of Investment Banking at Brasil Plural’s Investment Banking division, responsible for M&A, equity, and capital market transactions.

Bernardo has an extensive background in the Brazilian financial market and O&G sectors, working at top-tier firms such as Itaú BBA, Deutsche Bank, Opportunity Private Equity, and Safra’s Private Equity and Investment Banking division. He is also a former board member of Petroreconcavo, an important Brazilian junior oil company, where he structured and led the first O&G onshore acquisition financing in Brazil, amounting to around USD 300 million.

These changes are part of the Company’s new strategic positioning, which will focus on expanding the Company´s footprint through organic and inorganic growth, maximizing the return to shareholders. Procurement and execution of opportunistic M&A transactions will be essential to the realization of this objective.

This new direction also comes with workstreams to materialize, such as:

  1. Improvement of Maha’s current capital structure, strengthening the balance sheet and cash position;
  2. Optimization of Capex and Opex to capture enhanced returns for deployed capital;
  3. Analysis of asset portfolio optimization, including divestments and new developments.
  4. Appointment of a new independent company to assess and certify reserves and resources;
  5. Design of a dynamic and agile workplan for drilling and workover activities.

The third quarter was not Maha’s strongest, as quarterly production volumes were lower than planned and expected. Consequently, 2022 annual production guidance has been revised to 3,000 to 3,400 BOEPD. Production for the nine months ending September 2022 was 3,412 BOEPD; however, due to higher prices, revenues, and net results for the first nine months have increased, with nine months 2022 EBITDA of USD 46.3 million compared to EBITDA of USD 32.1 million for the same period last year. Nine months 2022 revenue was USD 72.5 million compared to nine months 2021 revenue of USD 50.5 million. Operating netback for the third quarter was impacted by workover costs and lost production; however, Maha’s nine months 2022 operating netback of USD 50.9 million has already surpassed the full year 2021 operating netback of USD 46.1 million. Maha closed the quarter with gross debt of USD 49.4 million and a cash position of USD 11.3 million, resulting in a Net Debt/EBITDA of 0.62. On a more operational prospective, there is robust indicators on the workover campaign in Brazil which has been completed and the Tie wells are onstream, showing a positive trend.

Finally, thank you for the confidence in the new Board of Directors and Executive Management that will lead Maha into its next stage. The Board of Directors and Executive Management are dedicated to increasing shareholder value, improving the Company’s desirability via improved performance, and ensuring close collaboration with our employees, clients, the Public Administrations and Society as a whole. 

On behalf of everyone at Maha, we would like to personally thank each of you for your invaluable support as well as Jonas Lindvall for founding the company. We will work to ensure your trust is maintained as we strengthen and grow into the next chapter with full transparency, humility, and hard work. 

We look forward to the future of the Company and all the potential it holds, and we will keep you closely informed of all major events and progress going forward. 

Yours sincerely, 
Paulo Mendonça (CEO)
