- The Acquisition represents a material increase in KOV’s reserves and production, acquiring 11.2 million barrels of oil equivalent (“MMboe”) of working interest 2P reserves and approximately 1,660 boe/d of current net production;

- The Acquisition provides the ability for KOV to leverage its proven operational expertise to materially increase production, reserves and cash flow from Winstar's assets;

Commenting on the Acquisition, Tim Elliott, President and Chief Executive Officer of KOV said:
“The combination of Winstar's and KOV's assets will result in a company with 2P reserves in excess of 20 MMboe and production of 4,760 boe/d with a clear path to materially increasing production in the near term.

We thank everyone involved in this transaction and are looking forward to working with Winstar's staff going forward.”

Commenting on the Acquisition, Bruce Libin, Chairman of Winstar said:
“After evaluating Winstar’s strategic alternatives over the last months, including thorough consideration of our ability to create shareholder value as an independent entity, the Board concluded the proposed transaction with KOV is in the best interests of shareholders. We believe that KOV’s business plan, highly experienced management team, proven track record of identifying and delivering value in upstream oil and gas assets and the combination of KOV’s and Winstar’s assets provides an attractive diversified portfolio with significant potential to enhance shareholder value. I look forward to being a shareholder and director of the new KOV.”
