Paradigm and Lighthouse Shareholder Update
LEVELLAND, Texas, Aug. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- (OTC: PDGO and LHPT) Recently the Lighthouse Petroleum, Inc. and Paradigm Oil and Gas, Inc. have posted the following information on their website.
The management of Paradigm Oil and Gas, Inc., has begun discussion with an independent private oil and gas producer in the United States. The objective is to purchase existing proven production. Management's internal plan is to purchase up to 1,500 barrels a month in production. Management believes this would require Paradigm to purchase up to 25 wells, with minimum production of about 2 BOE/d. Management has also come to an agreement with the independent private oil and gas producer for two price-points for acquisition of production.
Management also believes buying Lighthouse Petroleum, Inc., a Texas company and wholly owned subsidiary of Lighthouse Petroleum, Inc., a Delaware (OTC: LHPT) company will give Paradigm an oil producing asset upon closing and position Paradigm to potentially take over the Reames/Masterson Letter of Intent. The reserve study for the Reames/Masterson shows about 450,000 barrels in reserve, which at a market price of $90.00 per barrel could create an asset for Paradigm in the range of about $40,500,000. Documents related to the transaction were published on OTC Markets on July 12, 2012 as Supplemental Information for Lighthouse Petroleum, Inc. It is Management's belief that the DTC "chill" on Lighthouse's stock has affected its trading and valuation. Management believes upon completion of the merger with Paradigm, Lighthouse's position with properties in Louisiana will allow the company to pursue deep drilling opportunities in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale. The operator of the Lucy Lee well believes that the Liverpool Field in St. Helena Parrish could potentially have up to 3 million barrels in Reserve.
How Does Paradigm plan to Purchase the wells and projects get done without massive dilutions at these levels?
The Board of Directors have approved and filed with the state of Nevada a Designation of Rights and Preferences creating Class B Preferred shares with $4.00 face value with redemption of $.25 of the $4.00 every 90 days after a 6 month grace period over 54 months and paying semi-annual interest payments of 7% or 14% annual. "My position is that Paradigm has created an attractive plan to purchase producing assets from independent operators looking for an exit strategy. Paradigm is paying an attractive rate of interest and can manage dilution by paying for the acquisition out of cash flow. Some of the targeted companies have main members of management with health concerns and can no longer operate their business at their normal capacity so selling to Paradigm has become a good option. A small start up like Paradigm will be aggressive during my tenure as CEO, pursuing a model of acquiring small cash flowing businesses until we position the Company to increase its opportunities."
New Subsidiary: Paradigm has incorporated a new subsidiary in which management has begun establish business partners the new subsidiary's operations.
