The following is a round-up of updates by London-listed companies, issued on Thursday and not separately reported by Alliance News:


Velocys PLC - Oxford-based sustainable fuel technology company - Says its performance for 2022 was in line with market expectations. At the end of 2022 it had a cash balance of £13.4 million, down from £25.5 million the year prior. Expects to report its annual results in May. During the year, it achieved a number of key milestones and objectives which put the company in a strong position to progress its reference projects through to key valuation inflection points and build its commercial pipeline, it says. ‘The progress we continue to make, supported by these new developments and the policy tailwinds, means we have a solid platform to deliver. Consequently, we are confident about the years ahead and our commercialisation strategy,’ Chief Executive Henrik Wareborn comments.


GCP Asset Backed Income Fund Ltd - UK asset-backed loan investor - Net asset value per share in the quarter to December 31 is down 1.26 pence to 94.90 pence, after the payment of dividends. Also cites further reductions in the valuation of a Co-Living Group Loan, due to a reassessment of the estimates of the net realisable value of the underlying assets. Declares a quarterly dividend of 1.58125p per ordinary share for the period to December 31 from October 1. Says it is ‘well-placed’ to deliver against its investment objectives, including regular and growing distributions.


United Oil & Gas PLC - London-based oil and gas company with projects in Egypt, Italy and the UK - Production for 2022 averaged 1,312 barrels of oil per day net, in line with revised 2022 guidance of 1,300 to 1,325 boepd. Completes its work programme in Egypt, consisting of three development wells, two exploration wells, and eight workovers. Expects revenue in 2022 to amount to around $16 million, down from $19.2 million in 2021. Cash balances stood at $1.4 million with net debt of roughly $1.5 million as at December 31. ‘Operationally 2022 was a very active year for the company with an extensive work programme executed in Egypt, generating good operational cashflow despite mixed drill results. Over the three years that United has held Abu Sennan, the production base has generated material cashflows for the business. As the asset matures, it is transitioning to a phase in its development where operations are focused on maintaining and extending long term production rates to generate operational cashflows for many years to come. Egypt remains an integral part of our business providing operational cashflow which supports the wider asset portfolio of the company and our strategy to grow through M&A,’ CEO Brian Larkin comments.
