Hurricane Energy Plc (LON: HUR)

The shares of the FTSE All-Share Index-listed Hurricane Energy Plc (LON: HUR) have had a 180 per cent one-month return and has had an impressive rally recently. The oil company’s shares rallied after the UK High Court rejected its restructuring plans on 28 June 2021.

According to the company’s restructuring plans, the control over affairs of the beleaguered company would have been given to the bondholders of the company. The control would have been handed over in exchange for pardoning debt worth $50 million and maturity date extension for an additional $180 million worth of bonds, due for repayment in July 2022.

The court order

The court said that Hurricane Energy does not face the threat of immediate liquidation, and the company’s current shareholders are entitled to elect its directors. Crystal Amber Fund, its majority shareholder, raised its stake to 23.09 per cent, following the court’s orders that went in favour of the shareholders after the courts sided with the shareholders. Most of the company’s directors immediately resigned post the orders.  

Energy Hurricane then announced that for bondholders, the lock-up period to accelerate note conversion had lapsed, which would not give them the right to take up such an option. Crystal Amber upping its stake, was welcomed by investors who are hopeful that the new board would lead the company in the right direction.
