SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Daybreak Oil and Gas, Inc. (OTC PINK: DBRM) (“Daybreak” or the “Company”), a Washington corporation, is pleased to announce that it has agreed to acquire Reabold California, LLC (“Reabold California”), a subsidiary of Reabold Resources plc (“Reabold”), a United Kingdom Company listed on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange under the ticker “RBD”.
Reabold California owns a 50% working interest and operates 10 producing wells in the Sacramento Basin in Northern California with proved reserves of 613,000 barrels of oil equivalent. After the transaction is completed, Daybreak will have 1,085,000 barrels of proved oil equivalent with a value of approximately $17.0 million. Reabold California’s production is approximately 70 barrels of oil per day. Combined, the production would be approximately 100 barrels of oil per day.
The acquisition will be an all-stock transaction where Gaelic Resources Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reabold Resources plc, will own up to 45% of Daybreak’s common stock at closing. As part of the transaction Daybreak will also be raising approximately $2.5 million through the sale of its common stock to fund development programs in both the Sacramento Basin properties as well as its San Joaquin Basin properties.
The transaction will require Daybreak Oil and Gas, Inc. shareholder approval and is expected to close in the First Quarter of 2022.
James F. Westmoreland, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented; “The acquisition of Reabold California, LLC is a transforming event for the Company. We look forward to developing the significant opportunities acquired with the Reabold California properties as well as continuing to develop our legacy properties. The shorter life but higher production volumes from the Reabold California properties combined with our longer life lower volume properties will create immediate positive cash flow for the Company. We will continue to build shareholder value through strategic acquisitions in the California market as well as seeking drilling opportunities in and around the two basins which we operate. Additionally, we will pursue opportunities in other geographic areas as they may arise. We look forward to having Reabold Resources as a major shareholder of the Company.”
