The board of Petroceltic International and Worldview Capital Management are vying to influence shareholding voters ahead of the company’s EGM on the 25 February.

Petroceltic has lambasted Woldview’s proposals regarding a change in the company’s strategy as an attempt to wrest control of the board.

“The Board believes that the ‘alternative strategy’ proposed by Worldview demonstrates a serious misunderstanding of the assets owned by Petroceltic, the geographies in which it operates and a total lack of experience in managing major oil and gas production and development projects, in conjunction with national oil companies. The board believes that the implementation of such a strategy would be value destructive for shareholders,” Petroceltic said in a statement to investors.
