Sale of Oilfield Services Business

Gross proceeds from the sale totaled approximately $167.2 million, comprised of approximately $155.7 million in cash and an $11.5 million promissory note from Dalea.

Subsequently, TransAtlantic used $45.2 million of the proceeds to reduce borrowings under its senior secured credit agreement ("credit facility") with Standard Bank Plc and BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA. As of June 30, 2012 the Company had outstanding borrowings on the credit facility of $32.8 million and cash on hand of approximately $27.9 million.
