CALGARY, Alberta, Nov. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quattro Exploration and Production Ltd. ("Quattro" or the "Company") (TSXV:QXP) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced purchase oil and gas production, facilities and lands in British Columbia from two Alberta-based private oil and gas exploration and production companies (the "Acquisitions").
The purchase price for the Acquisitions was $1,944,180, paid through the issuance of 10,625 non-voting, Class C, series 3 preferred shares at a deemed price of $100 per share ("Preferred Shares") and $881,680 in cash, paid from working capital assumed by Quattro in the Acquisitions. The properties are located in northeast British Columbia, geologically trending complementary to Quattro's current exploration and production in the Company's core region, (the "Properties").
The Preferred Shares are priced at $100 per share and pay an annual preferred dividend of $3.50 per share. The holder will have the right on the anniversary of the 2nd year of issuance to convert the Preferred Shares into Class A common shares at a ratio of 40 Class A shares for each Preferred Share converted, valuing the Quattro Class A common shares received at a deemed price $2.50 per share.
The Acquisitions include the transfer of working capital in the form of cash deposits, a 100% interest in 102 boe/d of production (currently shut-in due to government restrictions being imposed on the seller that will be resolved as a condition of closing) and developed and undeveloped land totaling 10,036 (net) acres prospective in the Halfway and Baldonnel formations. The reactivation of production included in these Acquisitions was previously producing at an average rate of approximately 102 boe/d (net), a combination of 550 mcf/d of natural gas and 10 barrels per day of condensate.
