$2-5m capped oil and gas play Black Mountain Energy (ASX:BME) has lodged a formal request to be removed from the official list of the ASX because “the market has significantly undervalued [the company] and its assets.”

“The board has concluded that it is in the best interest of all shareholders, that the company delist in order to disassociate the market capitalisation from the underlying value of its assets, in particular, our flagship Valhalla oil and gas project,” exec chair Rhett Bennett says.

“The company believes the ASX listing is no longer beneficial to the company and its shareholders and is prohibitive to realising value for its shareholders.

“I urge all shareholders to support the delisting resolution as we look to protect and in due course enhance shareholder value.”

The company listed on the ASX with a $51m market cap in December 2021.
