Delta Petroleum Corporation Announces Receipt Of Commitment Letter For New Senior Secured Credit Facility

DENVER, Nov. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Delta Petroleum Corporation (the "Company" or "Delta") (Nasdaq: DPTR), an independent oil and gas exploration and development company, announced today that it has received a commitment letter for a new senior secured credit facility with Macquarie Bank Limited ("Macquarie").

The terms of the commitment letter provide for a $100 million credit facility, which contemplates an initial commitment of up to $50 million comprised of a $30 million revolving line of credit (Tranche A) and a $20 million advancing term loan (Tranche B).  The commitment letter contemplates that the facility will bear interest of Libor plus 7% or Prime plus 6% for Tranche A borrowings and Libor plus 9% or Prime plus 8% for Tranche B borrowings, and be subject to a 2% closing fee on the initial commitment amount.  It is expected that the facility will mature on January 31, 2012.  Once a credit agreement is signed and the new credit facility is in place, borrowings will be made from this new facility to repay the outstanding balance on the Company's existing credit facility.  The existing credit facility will then be terminated.

Carl Lakey, President and CEO of Delta Petroleum stated, "We are pleased to announce the receipt of a commitment letter for a new credit facility from Macquarie.  We will promptly begin to work toward signing a credit agreement and closing on the facility as soon as possible.  Macquarie brings a wide breadth of experience in the industry and in the capital markets.  We look forward to building a mutually beneficial relationship with them as both a valued financial partner and advisor in the future."
