The oil and gas company 88 Energy Ltd (OTCMKTS:EEENF) was in focus among investors on Thursday although there was no fresh news about the company. The 88 Energy stock experienced heavy action yesterday and ended the day with gains of as much as 10%.
In the absence of any material news, it might be a good time for investors to perhaps take a look at a key development from earlier on this month. Back on September 2, the company had announced that it closed a round of equity placing that was worth as much as A$23.96 million.
In this context, it is also necessary to point out that it was a maximum sum that 88 Energy could raise without shareholder approval. The equity placing had been placed by the company at a time when it was in the middle of making preparations for the subsequent steps in its Merlin project in Alaska.
However, it should be remembered that the company is also engaged in other projects in the North Slope area. It had been announced by the company at the time that the proceeds from the equity placing are going to be deployed towards the Merlin 2 appraisal well which will start during the first quarter of 2022.
