Operational and financial update from the oil operations 2018
Zhoda Investments ("Zhoda") announces an operational and financial update for 2018 on the oil operations near Poltava, Ukraine. The company has maintained a stable oil production and all of the oil produced during the year was sold on prepayment.
During 2018, Zhoda's 45 per cent interest in the field production amounted to 95,000 barrels. All of the oil produced during the year was sold on prepayment during 2018 for an amount of approximately SEK 52 million.
"The oil operations have had a solid development during the year. The new sales channel with prepayments has significantly improved cash flow and we are very glad that we have strengthened the oil operations balance sheet and resumed payment of dividends to the parent company", says Robert Karlsson, CEO of Zhoda Investments.
It has been a prioritized objective for Zhoda to strengthen the oil field operator's balance sheet by settling historic operational debt and to reach a financial position where the operator can resume payment of dividends. During 2018, the operator has settled SEK 20 million (an increase of SEK 4 million since the latest update as of 31 October 2018) of the SEK 26 million of historical debt at the beginning of the year.
Zhoda's 45 percent share of the operator's free cash flow after tax amounts to approximately SEK 20 million per year at the current production level. During the past few months, Zhoda Investments has received dividends of SEK 2 million, an increase of SEK 1 million since the latest update as of October 2018. Given continued stability in production and sales the operator expects to settle the outstanding historical payables during spring 2019. Following that, the operator expects to be able to distribute dividends to Zhoda corresponding to its share of the yearly cash flow, that is approximately SEK 20 million per year at the current level of production and oil price.
Zhoda Investments owns through its subsidiary 45 per cent of the license holder and operator of the Lelyaki oil field. All the amounts above relate to Zhoda's 45 per cent working interest in the operator.

Att Testaments viner nyligen belönades med flera ädla medaljer i världens största vintävling Decanter är ett fint erkännande för bolagets vinmakare.
Zhoda Investments ("Zhoda") announces an operational update on the wine operations located in the coastal region of Dalmatia in Croatia. The outbreak of the pandemic has led to a decrease in international travel as well as lower activity in the restaurant sector. Despite this the company has managed to sell as many bottles to date in 2020 as for the full year 2019. The warm weather with little rain has led to a lower harvest compared to previous years, but the quality of the grapes is very high and 2020 has the potential to become the best vintage in the company's history. Testament's wines were recently awarded with several gold medals in Decanter, the world's largest wine competition, demonstrating the high level of expertise of the company's winemakers.
