Pro-business result of the Argentina Presidential Election

 

Molecular Energies (AIM: MEN), the international energy company, notes the results of the election of the new Argentine President, who will take office on 10 December 2023.

 

The incoming President, Javier Milei, is a free-market economist and has stated that he intends to remove many of the current Argentine government restrictions on businesses. This includes those relating to foreign exchange and payments abroad which have plagued businesses under the current administration, including President Petroleum S.A. ("PPSA"), MEN's former subsidiary.

 

There may be complexities in implementation of such a strategy, but President Elect Milei has re-confirmed this objective with effect forthwith upon gaining office.

 

Should they occur, the removal of these restrictions will allow PPSA to commence repaying, starting in H1 2024, the intercompany debt outstanding to MEN, which is currently in excess of US$ 13 million pursuant to the terms of the agreement under which PPASA was sold in September 2023.

 

Furthermore, any more favorable business environment will be an advantage to President Nuevo Energia, a subsidiary of Green House Capital, a business specifically designed to operate in the green sector in Argentina.
