How Mangwana Opportunities Fund can expedite Invictus Energy’s growth


  • Invictus Energy Limited (ASX:IVZ) is developing its 80% owned and operated Cabora Bassa Project in Zimbabwe.
  • The Company is likely to accelerate its exploration campaign throughout the remainder of CY21.
  • Mangwana Opportunities Fund is a local institutional investor, assisting Invictus in achieving its strategic goals in country.
  • Mangwana’s role is integral to Invictus Energy’s growth as it commences the ramp-up of its exploration program and operations in Zimbabwe.

Independent oil and gas exploration company Invictus Energy Limited (ASX:IVZ) is about to “embark on a very exciting journey”, says newly appointed Non-Executive Director and Deputy Chairman Joe Mutizwa.

Leveraging its first-mover advantage in the underexplored Cabora Bassa Basin of Zimbabwe, Invictus operates its 80%-owned SG 4571 Cabora Bassa asset where it holds a clear pathway to continue towards development. Notably, the Mzarabani Prospect has 8.2Tcf + 247 million barrels of conventional gas-condensate1 (~1.6 billion boe) independently verified.

The quarter ending March 2021 was an excellent one for Invictus as it achieved a slew of milestones, building on its strong foundations. The completion of a strongly supported capital raise and the execution of The Petroleum Exploration Development and Production Agreement (PEDPA) with the Republic of Zimbabwe suggest that Invictus is set to accelerate its exploration campaign throughout the remainder of CY21.

Shortly after that, the Company finalised its Second Tranche Placement under the share subscription agreement – raising the equivalent of A$222,148. The agreement makes provision for an extra equity investment by the Fund for the Cabora Bassa Project over the next few months. There is also a provision to assist Invictus in achieving its strategic goals in country.

Recently, Joe Mutizwa, the current chairman of Mangwana Capital and a respected Zimbabwean businessperson, was appointed Invictus’s Non-Executive Director and Deputy Chairman.

As evidenced, the relationship between both parties has been evolving with time and this pattern is likely to continue. Having said so, Mangwana Opportunities Fund can go a long way in supporting Invictus to attain its strategic goals in the country.

On 21 June 2021, IVZ quoted A$0.155, with a market capitalisation of A$91.35 million.
