HYDROLOGY PLC INFORMATION
Hydrology PLC – previously known under the names of Water Bonds PLC, Nexus Water Bonds before finally settling on Hydrology in March 2016, originally proposed a CVA – a Creditors Voluntary Arrangement due to “financial difficulties” experienced by the company.
Now it’s gone into Administration
But should have investors have been pointed towards a Hydrology PLC investment in the first place?
Hydrology PLC was created to “enter commercial water markets by financing and developing facilities” that treat water, purifying it for use in industrial purposes.
So far so good, and as of late 2016, Hydrology PLC was operating two projects in Brazil and the US, while listed on the Cyprus Stock Exchange.
But the reasons for financial difficulty were stated in their proposal to enter a Creditor’s Voluntary Agreement:
- Both projects require further finance for development and maintenance
- US project suffered from collapse of oil and gas prices – 73% drop in the price of water treatment and disposal
- Substantial legal fights with local partners
- Considered “toxic” by the investment community [sic]
This has meant that Hydrology PLC has DEFAULTED on interest payments to debenture holders between March and Sept 2016, and again from October 2016 though to 1 March 2017, as the company is not able to pay.
