PostRock Closes White Deer Investment

OKLAHOMA CITY, Sept. 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PostRock Energy Corporation (Nasdaq:PSTR) ("PostRock" or the "Company") today announced that White Deer Energy L.P. ("White Deer") completed its previously announced $60 million investment in the Company. Simultaneously, the Company's existing credit agreements were restructured on more favorable terms. Thomas J. Edelman, James D. Bennett and Nathan M. Avery have joined PostRock's Board as White Deer's representatives. White Deer has reserved an additional $30 million to invest in PostRock on mutually acceptable terms to fund future growth.

The proceeds from the White Deer investment were used to reduce the Company's outstanding debt by approximately $59 million. Immediately following the closing, PostRock's debt was $258.8 million, comprised of $200 million drawn against $225 million available under a revolving credit facility, a $15 million term loan secured by the KPC Pipeline and a $43.8 million loan that is non-recourse to PostRock and is secured solely by certain Appalachian assets that are currently for sale.   

Additional information regarding the investment and the Company's new credit agreements is available on the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 3, 2010, and the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K that will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission following this announcement.
