Lucas Energy Announces Election Of New Members To The Board Of Directors

HOUSTON, Oct. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lucas Energy, Inc. (NYSE:LEI), an independent oil and gas company (the "Company" or "Lucas"), today announced that the Board of Directors has unanimously elected Ryan Morris and Josh Young to serve on the Board of Directors of the Company. Through their respective affiliates, Meson Capital Partners and Young Capital Management, Mr. Morris and Mr. Young are the largest shareholders of Lucas with a combined stake of over 4 million shares (including 337,500 shares underlying warrants) representing more than 16% of the total outstanding shares. These affiliates participated in full in the recent 800,000 share private placement of Lucas common stock.

The Board believes that each new director will add important perspective and new ideas to our business plan, as well as help unlock unrecognized shareholder value. We look forward to their collaboration and contribution. Their appointment brings the number of members on the Board of Directors to six.

Ryan J. Morris is the Managing Member of Meson Capital Partners LLC ("Meson LLC"), a San Francisco-based investment partnership, which he founded in February 2009.  Mr. Morris is currently Executive Chairman of the Board of InfuSystem Holdings, Inc., an NYSE-MKT listed company.  From June 2011 through July 2012, Mr. Morris served as a member of the equity committee responsible for maximizing value to the stockholders of HearUSA, Inc. (subsequently HUSA Liquidating Corporation), an NYSE Amex-listed company in Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which has since liquidated its assets and ceased operations. Prior to founding Meson LLC, in July 2008 he co-founded VideoNote LLC, a small and profitable educational software company with customers including Cornell University and The World Bank, and he continues to serve as its Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Morris has a Bachelor's of Science and Masters of Engineering degree in Operations Research & Information Engineering from Cornell University, and holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.
