ZaZa Energy Reports Record 2012 Third Quarter Results

Ian Fay, Chief Financial Officer of ZaZa added, “With the cash received from the Hess division of assets, we paid down approximately one third of our debt on our Senior Secured Notes, while improving our balance sheet and liquidity position. We have focused exploration and development efforts in our Eagle Ford and Eaglebine acreage and believe we have sufficient resources at our disposal to execute our drilling plans. We are also exploring strategic and operational alternatives to quickly and efficiently tap the resources we know are prevalent in these plays and which will provide additional capital to further develop our assets.”
