RockPile Energy Services Announces Upsized Credit Facility

DENVER, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RockPile Energy Services, LLC ("RockPile"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Triangle Petroleum Corporation ("Triangle") (NYSE MKT: TPLM), today announces that it has closed on a senior secured revolving credit facility (the "Credit Facility") in the amount of $100 million.

$100 Million Credit Facility

The new Credit Facility is a five-year term $100 million revolving facility with an accordion feature that allows for the expansion of the Credit Facility up to an aggregate of $150 million. The previous facility had an aggregate borrowing limit of $27.5 million. In closing the Credit Facility, Citibank, N.A. ("Citi") acted as Administrative Agent, Joint Lead Arranger and Joint Bookrunner, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association acted as Joint Lead Arranger and Joint Bookrunner with Citi.

The interest rate under the Credit Facility is determined, at RockPile's option, as either LIBOR or the alternative base rate plus an applicable margin, with the applicable margin calculation based on the following leverage-based pricing grid:

Leverage Ratio

LIBOR Margin

ABR Margin

> 2.00x

3.25%

2.25%

> 1.50x < 2.00x

3.00%

2.00%

> 1.00x < 1.50x

2.75%

1.75%

< 1.00x

2.50%

1.50%

A portion of the Credit Facility proceeds will be utilized to refinance RockPile's existing indebtedness.  Neither Triangle nor its non-RockPile subsidiaries act as a guarantor under the Credit Facility.

Additionally, the Credit Facility will support RockPile's growth initiatives and enable RockPile to remain self-funded as it contemplates additional investment in infrastructure and equipment necessary to support broad-based growth across all of RockPile's service lines. RockPile is currently evaluating opportunities in other basins outside the Williston Basin.

Curt Dacar, RockPile's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "This is an important milestone for RockPile and another step towards our goal of becoming a best-in-class provider of energy services with significant scale in the regions we serve.  This facility provides us with the ability to double the size of our business in the next 12 to 18 months without the need for additional equity capital.  Further, this transaction will enable us to return significant amounts of capital to our existing equity holders.  We look forward to partnering with Citi and Wells Fargo to continue the growth of our platform."
