Magellan Petroleum Corporation Provides Letter To Shareholders

Stocks in this article: MGN MPET

Of course, we may take no action and stay the current course of developing our existing assets if we determine that is our best existing alternative, but we are open to alternatives that are likely to improve our long term underlying value and consequently our stock performance. 

The Company has not retained an investment banking firm or other external advisor at this time as such action appears premature at this stage of our process.  This engagement decision will be reviewed regularly and is subject to prompt change should the circumstances so warrant.

I will coordinate the Committee's activities.  Given that the members of the Committee are significant shareholders, the Board unanimously believes that the goal of enhancing shareholder value will receive its needed focus.  As you know, the creation and function of this Committee does not insure that any specific transaction will occur.  While the Committee's consideration of strategic alternatives is ongoing, the Company does not intend to comment further regarding this process and the items under consideration by the Committee unless and until a specific transaction is approved by the Board, the review process is concluded, or it is otherwise determined that further disclosure is appropriate or required by law. 

I can assure you the Board and management of Magellan are committed to increasing shareholder value as quickly and prudently as possible.  We are listening to your ideas and suggestions, even if they are critical.  Our plan is to grow revenues, cut costs, and unlock the value we believe is embedded in our resource plays.  If other strategies can accomplish these goals or otherwise enhance shareholder value in an acceptable fashion, we will move on them rapidly.

Very truly yours,

J. Thomas Wilson

President and CEO
