Update on Final Assignment for Block Z-34 Peru

 

Baron Oil PLC (AIM:BOIL) ("Baron") notified shareholders on 9th February that the Public Deed had been signed by Gold Oil Peru SAC (Baron's Peruvian subsidiary), Union Oil & Gas Group ("UOGG") and PeruPetro and that Baron expected the assignment to UOGG become final within 10 days.  This document also has to be signed by the Central Bank of Peru, which Baron anticipated would take place rapidly. Unfortunately, the public deed has been deposited for signature by the Notary but Baron is still waiting for signature to occur.  The Board of Baron hope this will take place very soon but are not currently able to predict when it might happen.  Once this has been signed, UOGG will be liable to pay Baron the sum of US$2 million, on which Baron will have to pay Peruvian tax at 32%.
