Imperial Executes Conditional Settlement In Bank Lawsuit

(OTCQX: IPMN) Imperial Petroleum, Inc. (“Imperial” or the “Company”) announced today that it has executed a conditional Settlement Agreement with the senior lenders for the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, e-Biofuels, in regards to the lender’s lawsuit against the Company. Under the lawsuit the lenders had sought to enforce, among other things, the Company’s guarantee of e-Biofuels’ senior debt in the approximate amount of $7.5 million plus accrued interest of approximately $0.5 million. Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the Company will cooperate in the sale of the assets of e-Biofuels by the lender and subject to the completion of that sale, the lender and the Company will stipulate to a Judgment in the amount of $1.0 million with a covenant by the lender not to execute prior to December 31, 2015.

Jeffrey Wilson, President of the Company, said, “Although the Settlement Agreement is conditional upon the sale of the e-Biofuels assets by the lender, a Letter of Intent has been negotiated by the lender with a third party and should proceed to a closing soon. The net result to the Company, upon closing, will be a reduction of approximately $7.0 million in liabilities related to our guarantee of the debt of e-Biofuels and the dismissal of the lender’s lawsuit against the Company. The delay in execution of the Judgment of $1.0 million until December 31, 2015 is designed to provide the Company with ample time to establish cash flow from its oil sand recovery business in order to pay the judgment.”
