Echo Energy plc is a London listed Latin American focused mid-cap gas company in the making.

Following the partial divestment of its assets in Argentina and subsequent debt restructuring and cost reduction program, Echo has been active in exploring potential opportunities to secure new assets. As a result of this process, and following a full review of the business, the Board has decided to broaden the Company's acquisition strategy towards a wider range of natural resources projects.

The Company is studying a number of potentially transformational projects which fit with this revised strategy. Amongst these opportunities is a gold project in Latin America, which the Directors believe has the potential to create significant future value for shareholders, without requiring a large initial capital investment.
