CALGARY, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - Result Energy Inc. ("Result"; TSX-V: RTE) is
pleased to announce the following financing activities:
The TSX Venture Exchange has approved amendments to the terms of existing
convertible debentures totalling $3,275,000 (the "Convertible Debenture
Financing") which were issued in September 2006. Under the terms of the
amended Convertible Debenture Financing, the debentures' maturity date has
been extended by 4 months from February 28 to June 30, 2008, and effective
from March 1, 2008 the convertible debentures will bear interest at 10% per
annum and will be convertible at the option of the holder into Result common
shares at $0.40 per common share (previously at prime +3% and $1.15 per share
respectively). The convertible debentures continue to be repayable in cash at
Result's option, subject to the debenture holders' prior rights to convert.
The reduction in the conversion price to $0.40 will not create a new insider
or control person.
Result is in process of securing from its bankers a $2 million short-term
secured bank term loan facility. The facility will bear interest at prime
+ 3%, matures April 30, 2008, and is in addition to the Company's existing
$14 million bank revolving facility.
Holders of convertible debentures totaling $1,275,000 have agreed to the
above noted amendments, and the $2 million bank term loan facility will be
used to fund repayment of the remaining $2 million of convertible debentures
on February 28.
Result is in process of selling the majority of its Saskatchewan natural
gas properties, with an expected closing date of March 31, and intends to use
the proceeds from the sale to repay the remaining debentures and substantially
all bank debt. Post closing of the sale, this restructuring should allow
Result to exit Q1-08 with estimated production of 1,000 to 1,100 boe/d, be
virtually debt free, and have significant operating cash flow to apply to its
remaining inventory of 2008 exploration projects.

The term barrels of oil equivalent ("boe") may be misleading,
particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand
cubic feet per barrel (6mcf/bbl) of natural gas to barrels of oil equivalence
is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at
the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. All
boe conversions herein are derived from converting gas to oil in the ratio mix
of six thousand cubic feet of gas to one barrel of oil.
