Gale Force to buy additional Texas Reef Property interests, issues incentive stock options

Thursday, May 23, 2013
 
  • The interests are to be purchased from two sellers for total consideration of 885,000 common shares of the Company and $240,000 in cash, paid in six monthly installments of $40,000.
  • The closing of the acquisition of the Texas Reef Properties interests is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Gale Force Petroleum Inc. (TSXV: GFP) (OTCQX: GFPMF) announced that it has reached agreements to purchase two sets of minority working interests in its Texas Reef Properties, which will increase its ownership in such properties by approximately 10%, to a total of 90%. The interests are to be purchased from two sellers for total consideration of 885,000 common shares of the Company and $240,000 in cash, paid in six monthly installments of $40,000.

"These working interests will increase the Company's ownership in its highly-profitable wells at the Texas Reef Properties, as well as in the prospective acreage and 5-mile gas gathering line system," said Michael McLellan , Co-Chairman and CEO. "The other advantage of this transaction is that it simplifies the ownership structure and operation of the properties, making them a more attractive part of the Company as we seek a strategic alternative."

The closing of the acquisition of the Texas Reef Properties interests is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Gale Force also announced that it has issued a total of 3,700,000 incentive stock options to its officers and employees, including 2,500,000 options granted to Michael McLellan , Co-Chairman and CEO, and 600,000 options granted to Emery Johnson , COO. All stock options are subject to the terms of the Company's stock option plan, have an exercise price of $0.15 and an expiry date of May 23, 2013, and vest in six equal quarterly installments over a period of 18 months, subject to an accelerated vesting and expiry date in the event that the holder of the options is terminated from the Company without cause. The grant of these incentive stock options reflects the recommendations resulting from a recently concluded compensation study that was initiated by the Board of Directors in 2012, and is intended to align the interests of the Company's officers and employees with those of its shareholders in the context of the Company's strategic review.
