Date Posted: 2009-12-03

On 1 December 2009, the Board of Directors of Semirara Mining Corporation approved the investement of the Company in the 2 x 300 MW Batangas Coal-Fired Thermal Power Plant (BCFTPP) in Calaca, Batangas with an acquisition cost of  US1.709M. 

The investment was made by way of assignment from DMCI Holdings, Inc. (DMCI-HI), the winning bidder of BCFTPP, to the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, SEM-Calaca Power Corporation (SCPC). 

On 2 December 2009, the Asset Purchase Agreement (APA) and the Land Lease Agreement (LLA) between DMCI-HI and the Power Sector Assets and Liabilitites Management Corporation (PSALM) was sucessfully closed.  Simultaneously, an Accession and Assignment Agreement was Executed between DMCI-HI, PSALM and SCPC, which formalized PSALM's consent to DMCI-HI's assignment of the APA and LLA to SCPC.

The acquisition of BCFTPP is both a defensive and an oportunistic investment for the Company.  It is a defensive investment as the acquisition will protect the Company's coal supply contract with BCFTPP.  It is opportunistic because as a stand-alone investment, it is expected to provide a fair return on investment and add value to the returns generated by the Company from its coal mining operations.
