Initial substantial shareholder status was reached on February 13, 2019, when Regal acquired 10 million shares valued at $1.5 million.
The issue of shares to Regal was part of GEV’s recent $4.7 million capital raising via the placement of ordinary shares at 15 cents each.
The placement was well supported by existing institutional and sophisticated investors with several new parties becoming shareholders.

• Development of global CNG opportunities and the delivery of Global Energy’s target to achieve a final investment decision for a CNG Optimum 200 ship in 2019; and
• Working capital.
