HOUSTON, Dec. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - Far East Energy Corporation (OTCBB:FEEC) today provided additional information regarding the extension of its bridge facility agreement with Standard Chartered Bank. Far East noted that the purpose of the extension announced yesterday, December 19, 2012, is to provide the Company additional time to complete the currently ongoing process of final documentation with an investor for a private placement of senior secured notes.
As announced yesterday, the termination date of the facility agreement was extended to January 15, 2013, subject to an earlier date if the investor and other participants to the currently contemplated private placement of senior secured notes notify Far East or Standard Chartered of an intention not to proceed with such private placement. It is believed that the extension to January 15, 2013, provides sufficient time for the current closing documents to be finalized and executed. If the transaction that is currently in the process of final documentation does not close or fund by January 15, 2013, then Far East intends to seek an extension and/or pursue investment from the other interested investors.
Far East Energy (Bermuda), Ltd. and its management, due to applicable rules and regulations, are at this time prohibited from making further detailed statements related to the potential senior secured notes transaction, which is being conducted as a private placement not registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").
