I have pleasure in presenting the condensed unaudited interim financial statements of UAE Oil Services Plc (the "Company" or "UAE Oil Services") for the six-month period ended 30 June 2019.

UAE Oil was incorporated in the Isle of Man on 3 January 2018 and was admitted to the Standard Segment of the Official List of the London Stock Exchange on 25 April 2018. The Company was formed for the purpose of making acquisitions in the oil and gas support services and infrastructure sector in the Middle East and North Africa, with an initial focus in the UAE.

During the financial period, the Company reported a net loss of £271,454 (0.54p per share). As at 30 June 2019, the Company had cash at bank balance of £11,816.

On 17 August 2018 the Company announced its intention to acquire the OBN Group of Companies and then admitting its enlarged securities to trading on the Standard segment of the London Stock Exchange. As at 30 June 2019, this acquisition and admission to London Stock Exchange had not taken place, neither has it done so up to the date of this statement. However, the work required to complete the acquisition is ongoing and an update will be made in due course.

On 24 June 2019 the Company announced that it had signed a loan facility agreement with Blue Rock Investments LLC for a principal amount of £100,000, as at 30 June 2019 the Company had not drawn down from this facility.

I look forward to the year ahead with gratitude to our shareholders, for their continued support.

The main expense for the Company is its legal and professional costs. The management intends to monitor and control this to be cost efficient and minimise its net loss before a suitable acquisition.

The Board looks forward to providing further updates to shareholders in due course and actively reviewed a number of potential acquisition opportunities across the sector.
