SEATTLE, Aug. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Legend Oil and Gas Ltd. (OTCBB: LOGL)
("Legend", the "Company") is pleased to announce it has closed a $4.6 million equity private placement and has received approval for a $6.0 million credit facility with the National Bank of Canada relating to Legend's previously announced non-binding letter of intent (LOI) with International Sovereign Energy Corp. ("ISR") of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, to acquire all of ISR's interests in land and production in Canada for a purchase price valued at $17.0 million in a cash and shares transaction.
"This acquisition and financing will add significantly to the Company's strategic development growth program and will dramatically impact our 'resource play' drilling opportunities. Legend is now poised to achieve substantial reserve, production and cash flow growth in its first full year of oil and gas operations," said Legend's President, Marshall Diamond-Goldberg.
ISR and Legend continue to work toward completion of the Definitive Agreement between the Companies and the Information Circular necessary for the ISR shareholders, as the transaction will require their approval. The anticipated Closing date is August 31, but may be moved back slightly due to the statutory requirements relating to the timeframe in which the ISR shareholders must be in receipt of the Circular. The effective date of this acquisition will remain at July 1, 2011, thereby conveying the production and cash flow from the properties to Legend's account from that date forward.About Legend Oil and Gas Ltd.
