Legacy Oil + Gas Inc. announces closing of deleveraging light oil corporate acquisition

CALGARY, July 2, 2014 /CNW/ - Legacy Oil + Gas Inc. ("Legacy" or the "Company") (TSX:LEG) has closed the acquisition of Corinthian Exploration Corp. ("Corinthian"), previously announced on June 24, 2014 (the "Acquisition").  Through the Acquisition, Legacy acquired high quality, high netback, light oil assets focused in its North Dakota Spearfish core area for total consideration of approximately 20.1 million Legacy common shares and assumed net debt of approximately $34 million (subject to certain adjustments).  Corinthian's net debt on closing was below 0.7 times estimated annualized funds flow from operations, resulting in a deleveraging of Legacy's balance sheet. The producing properties are predominately operated with high working interests, 3D seismic coverage and control of key producing infrastructure and are associated with a large, light oil prospective undeveloped land base.  Reduced capital costs and increased initial well production rates have resulted in improved capital efficiencies in the play, enhancing the value of the significant pro forma Spearfish development drilling inventory. The Acquisition also includes a meaningful position in the Dunvegan light oil play in the Elmworth area of northwest Alberta, with production, undeveloped land and drilling upside and owned and operated key facilities and infrastructure.  Legacy will examine alternatives for the Elmworth asset, which could include disposition.

Legacy is a uniquely positioned, well‐capitalized, technically driven, intermediate oil and natural gas company with a proven management team committed to aggressive, cost‐effective growth of light oil reserves and production in large hydrocarbon in‐place assets and resource plays.  Legacy's common shares trade on the TSX under the symbol LEG.
