TransAtlantic Petroleum Ltd. Provides Operations Update And Announces Delay In Filing Quarterly Report On Form 10-Q

Sale of Oilfield Services Business

On June 13, 2012, TransAtlantic closed the sale of its oilfield services business to a joint venture owned by Dalea Partners, LP ("Dalea", an affiliate of N. Malone Mitchell, 3rd, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer) and funds advised by Abraaj Investment Management Limited. 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.
