From the Aug financials:

Under the terms of the Origin Agreement, and pursuant to an exclusive arrangement, the Corporation has agreed to pay Origin consideration in the amount of $42 million in cash, payable in the US$ equivalent at a fixed C$/US$ exchange rate of 1.0349, and such other adjustments as may be required at closing. A $5 million non-refundable deposit was paid with the remainder due on closing, which is anticipated to occur in Q4-2012. Closing of the Acquisition is contingent on receiving government approvals, Origin completing the current recommissioning of the TAWN LPG extraction facility, Origin and/or NZEC entering into an agreement with Contact Energy regarding ongoing operation of Contact’s Ahuroa gas storage facility, and standard TSX Venture Exchange approvals.

Upon announcing the Origin Acquisition, NZEC set aside funds for the transaction by converting Canadian dollar cash balances to US$26 million, which was deposited into a US$ bank account to protect the Corporation against currency fluctuations. The remaining approximately US$9.8 million outstanding and due upon closing will be funded from operational cash flows, which are received in US$.

Cash at end of period (June 30th)


Cash, end of the period


NZ will get an additional 6 months of production revenue by the end of Dec.

Hope this helps
