Company and IPO background

Focus on Chile – with 18 million people, Chile has the highest per-capita GDP in South America.
•  Electricity demand has doubled since 2000 and is set to more than double again by 2050.
•  Chile is a modern, Pacific nation economy.
•  Chile has the 8th highest electricity price for industry among International Energy Agency (IEA) nations.
•  Firewood accounts for ~60% of domestic energy production! Cleaner energy is an urgent bio-health issue.
•  The Chilean Government is supportive of projects that add domestic power generation and gas supply, including the Chaucer Energy Project chosen on the basis of known coal deposits, past drilling data, existing coal geology, and local energy needs.
•  Exploration concessions have been granted for three project locations.

A fast-to-market strategy.
•  Chilean Government has previous experience with ISG.
•  No preliminary trial is planned – 3MW of power generation needs minimal approvals.
•  Indicative costing for power development on granted concessions already undertaken.
• A small and staged power play is planned to minimise capital expenditure and risk and create early revenue.
• Creating revenue from power generation in 2022/23.
• High growth revenue opportunities through modular-MW expansion and then multiple sites operating.
• Post-listing regular and important milestones to grow the market cap objective.
