OVERVIEW: Polo Resources’ NAV decreased slightly during Q4 2012. The NAV closed at 3.62 pence per share on 31 December 2012 compared to 3.83 pence per share on 30 September 2012. The decrease in NAV during the quarter is primarily attributable to two factors; an increase in issued share capital resulting from the Signet transaction and secondly, a reduction in the share price of GCM Resources plc.Neil Herbert, Executive Co-Chairman and Managing Director commented: “During the quarter we continued to invest in both gold and oil and gas projects. Polo funded a significant drill programme at the Komahun gold deposit in Sierra Leone and increased its interest in African oil and gas explorer Signet Petroleum.
