TULSA, OK, and VANCOUVER, BC, September 6, 2017 – Jericho Oil Corporation ("Jericho") (TSX-V: JCO; OTC PINK: JROOF) announces, with its Private Family Partner, that it has closed the acquisition of approximately 9,400 net surface acres in the oil window of the Anadarko Basin STACK play in Oklahoma. Concurrently, the Company announces that it has closed an oversubscribed non-brokered private placement of C$10,576,107 (the "Offering") consisting of 22,033,567 units ("Units") at a price of C$0.48 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one common share (a "Share") and one-half warrant (a "Warrant") with each full Warrant being exercisable into one additional Share at a price of C$0.60 per Share for a period of 36 months from closing.
Jericho has exercised US$3 Million of its option in the STACK Joint Venture ("STACK JV") with its Private Family Partner, and the Company will own approximately 31% interest in the STACK JV upon fully exercising its option for an additional US$6 Million. For additional details about Jericho's STACK acquisition, please see the Company's STACK Entry Presentation.
Brian Williamson, CEO of Jericho, stated, "We are extremely pleased to have completed this transformative transaction, which affords our Company the option to invest in one of the top resource plays in North America. Jericho's operated, beach-head position in Blaine County came at a noteworthy per acre discount to recently completed proximate STACK transactions as well as publicly traded pure-play STACK players. Our team's extensive background working on the Mississippian-aged Meramec and Osage formations gives me great confidence in our ability to execute on our strategic growth initiatives moving forward."
