This acquisition would provide an immediate increase to total Company revenues and will be complementary to our current oil and gas revenues being generated from our Newton County, Texas wells.”
The Company also wishes to immediately announce a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) consisting of 10 million units of Hillcrest Resources (the “Units”) at a purchase price of $0.05 per Unit (the “Offering Price”), for aggregate gross proceeds in the amount of approximately $500,000.
