Gale Force closes Texas Reef interests sale

DALLAS, TX, Aug. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - Gale Force Petroleum Inc. (TSXV: GFP) (OTCQX: GFPMF) ("Gale Force" or the "Company") today announced that it has concluded the sale of an 81% working interest in its properties in Henderson and Anderson Counties, Texas (the "Texas Reef Properties") as well as its 90% interest in a 4-mile natural gas gathering system on the properties, for an aggregate selling price of US$5,850,000.  Per the terms of the purchase and sale agreement, US$567,000 of the purchase price will be held in escrow for sixty days following closing, or longer, if there are any title or environmental issues to be resolved.  

The Company has retained an average 12% working interest plus a 3% overriding royalty interest in its existing four producing wells on the Texas Reef Properties, and an average 9% working interest plus a 5% overriding royalty interest throughout another 3,500 undeveloped net acres.

The purchaser, an experienced, well-capitalized private E&P operator with operations in several states in the Southern USA, has taken over as operator of the Texas Reef Properties.

"The Company will benefit from the new operator's experience drilling and operating in the area, while participating in the upside with its retained interests," said Michael McLellan, Chief Executive Officer.  "Also, the Company has made significant debt repayments and freed up capital for investment in core properties."

With the proceeds of the sale, the Company has repaid US$3,000,000 of its senior bank facility.  The borrowing base of the facility is now $1,750,000 and the maturity date has been extended to January 1, 2016.  Also, the next date for a borrowing base redetermination will be January 1, 2015, at which time it will be determined if monthly borrowing base reductions are needed.  The facility is currently an interest-only facility, with an interest rate that remains unchanged at 5% per annum.

The Company also repaid all other subordinate notes, including the seller's note issued upon the purchase of Texas Reef interests announced on February 26, 2014, which had an outstanding balance of US$350,000, the bridge loan to Primatlantis Capital, which had an outstanding balance of US$255,000, and the note payable to Iroquois Capital Opportunity Fund, which had an outstanding balance of CA$33,000. 

Further to the announcement made on August 18, 2014, the closing of the Thunder Properties sale has been delayed.  The Company expects to announce a revised closing date in the near future.

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept.
