Coking coal producer Beacon Hill Resources is to raise around £3m through the issue of unsecured convertible loan notes. The funds raised, along with the recent issue of equity to contractors, strengthens the company's balance sheet and means the company is funded through to the completion of the Phase II wash plant upgrade. The loan notes are convertible into ordinary shares of Beacon Hill at 4p each. The notes mature on June 30th, 2015 and pay a coupon of 10 percentage points above the London interbank offered rate (LIBOR) per annum on a quarterly basis.

Urals Energy, an independent oil exploration and production company with operations in Russia, has won another victory in its arbitration case against Vyatcheslav Rovneiko. The arbitrator has issued a third partial final award which orders that Rovneiko is liable to pay to Urals Energy the sum of $3.73m. Urals Energy said the only remaining issues in the arbitration process are to determine the amount of Rovneiko's liability to pay interest on the loan and the allocation of the costs of the arbitration. Urals Energy will be seeking to recover its costs now that Rovneiko's liability for the full amount of the principal of the loan has been finally determined by the arbitrator in favour of the company.
