American Eagle Energy Announces $18 MM Financing Agreement

Stocks in this article: AMZG

LITTLETON, Colo., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Eagle Energy Corporation (OTCQX: AMZG) closed a credit agreement with Macquarie Bank Ltd on December 28, 2012 and has received $16,000,000 of the $18,000,000 total.  The remaining $2,000,000 is expected to be received within 30 days following the closing of two pending acquisitions.  American Eagle intends to use the funds to support further developmental drilling in its Spyglass Project in North Dakota, for the pending property acquisitions and for general corporate purposes. 

All of the funds are to be repaid through the sale of approximately 212,000 barrels of oil over the five-year period from January 2013 to December 2017, with a final balloon payment of $2,000,000 due December 31, 2017.  The monthly volumes are less than 25% of current net production and the cost of the financing and the repayment structure are based upon an equivalent annual interest rate of LIBOR + 650 basis points, which is approximately 7.2%. 

Brad Colby, American Eagle's President, stated, "This funding transaction provides an important source of capital that allows American Eagle to continue its aggressive development pace in Spyglass which we expect will  significantly expand our production and reserve base.  We are pleased to have closed our 2012 fiscal year with this important financing and believe we are well positioned to continue growing our company in 2013."
