Heidelberg. Deutsche Rohstoff AG receives an additional earn-out purchase price payment in the amount of EUR 1.19 million from Tulip Oil. Tulip Oil acquired a 55% of the initial 80% stake of Deutsche Rohstoff AG in Rhein Petroleum GmbH in January 2011. The payment is due because Rhein Petroleum recently obtained approval by the mining authority in Baden-Wuerttemberg for another license north of Karlsruhe (“Graben-Neudorf”), which was defined as a milestone in the Sales and Purchase Agreement. The cash flow is virtually tax-free and adds to net profit for Deutsche Rohstoff AG.
The license area, which was awarded to Rhein Petroleum, is located adjacent to Speyer, where a large new oil field has been developed in recent years. Geologists of Rhein Petroleum believe the area around Graben-Neudorf to also be very interesting. Rhein Petroleum intends to conduct seismic surveys in this license area later this year.
Deutsche Rohstoff AG expects further payments close to EUR 2 Million due to accomplishment of different milestones near term.
