SEATTLE, Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Legend Oil and Gas Ltd. (OTCBB: LOGL) ("Legend", the "Company") is pleased to announce it has signed the Definitive Agreement with International Sovereign Energy Corp. ("ISR") of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, relating to Legend's previously announced non-binding letter of intent (LOI) to acquire substantially all of ISR's interests in land and production in Canada for a purchase price valued at $17.0 million in a cash and shares transaction.
"This acquisition will add substantial production to the Company's current operations and will result in the Company producing in excess of 300 BOE/d (barrels of oil equivalent with gas converted at 6:1) with a dramatic increase in net revenues," said Legend's President, Marshall Diamond-Goldberg.
The assets to be acquired contain stable oil and gas production with predictable revenues and operating expenses. The added value in undeveloped resource and conventional mineral acreage will provide a large number of drilling opportunities with which Legend can increase production and revenue. Legend has identified multiple new drilling targets on the currently producing lands it will acquire within the Swan Hills and Medicine River properties as well as development opportunities on several other producing leases.
"This acquisition is in line with the Company's mandate to acquire assets with exploitation potential," said Diamond-Goldberg. "We will, however, be looking to continue to add production through acquisition and development, while at the same time raising new capital with which to exploit our current asset base," he added.
Initial Closing of the transaction expected at the end of August is now scheduled for October, however the effective date of this acquisition continues to be July 1, 2011, and adjustments will be made on closing as of that date.
