CEO Comments and Path Forward

“The company has an excellent, long-term asset base and a substantial platform for growth via the drill bit. The drop in oil prices earlier this year created a situation where we had to slow down our field work and push our drilling programs into the second half of the year. During this time we were able to more fully evaluate our entire asset base and update our geology and engineering. We have technically confirmed a good mix of low-risk, development drilling targets including shallow oil wells, horizontal wells, and lateral recompletions.”

“We are working to secure additional funds that will allow us to accelerate our drilling programs and make a good run at our year-end production and revenue targets.”

“And, as always, we are amenable to corporate events that have the potential to add significant shareholder value. Some of these events could be another major acquisition, an industry merger, or an outright sale of the company. Each event would be considered on its own merits.”
