Ophir said that it and Medco were currently in discussions about a cash offer, and that there could be "no certainty" that a firm offer will be made.

Medco has until January 28 to make a firm offer to wholly acquire Ophir Energy.

Ophir shares closed Monday in London at 35.70 pence, which mean they lost 48% of their value in 2018 and left Ophir with a market capitalisation of GBP252 million.
