2023 financial highlights and other financial updates

  • Debt free with cash of US$14.1 million at 30 September 2023 (31 December 2022: US$16.8 million).
  • Continued focus on cost management and the efficient operation of the portfolio.

Related Party Transaction
The Company has amended the employment contract of Philip O’Quigley, Falcon’s Chief Executive Officer, to increase the payment due under the change of control provision from one year to three years base salary (the “Transaction”). The Remuneration Committee believes this change will more align Mr. O ’Quigley’s remuneration with the strategic objectives and the shareholders’ interests.

The Transaction is deemed to be a related party transaction for the purposes of the AIM Rules for Companies. The independent Directors (being all directors other than Mr. O’Quigley) consider, having consulted with the Company’s nominated adviser, Cavendish Capital Markets Limited, that the terms of the Transaction are fair and reasonable insofar as the Company’s shareholders are concerned.
