Golden Sky Energy Group has been entirely self-funded by the founders through initial startup to present day operations. Our overall funding model is based on self-sustainability, meeting all short term funding requirements through our own capital, commodities trading, project development and management activities.
Maintaining this base operating level has afforded GSEG the opportunity to progress longer term plans with an unpressured, controlled and systematic approach, allowing GSEG to identify, evaluate and secure multiple international major capital project opportunities. These major capital project opportunities require significant capital expenditure, minimum USD $100m – $1 billion and GSEG has plans in place to address these funding requirements together with international financial partners. For our past and current projects, the overall finance secured to date is in excess of USD $3.5 billion with proof of funds from recognised international banks.
The founders of GSEG are also considering listing the company on the main board of the London Stock Exchange within a five year timeframe. This brings the additional benefits of transparency on all our global activities, independent regulatory oversight, partial exit mechanism for the founders, legacy planning and the opportunity for new institutional and private investors to share in the future growth of the enterprise.
