Gasco Energy Announces Missed Interest Payment

Stocks in this article: GSX

DENVER, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gasco Energy, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GSX) ("Gasco" or the "Company") today announced that it has elected not to make the $1,242,120 semi-annual interest payment due on April 5, 2013 on its outstanding 5.50% Convertible Senior Notes due 2015 (the "2015 Notes").

The indenture governing the 2015 Notes provides that the failure to make such interest payment constitutes an event of default after a 30-day cure period. Accordingly, if the Company has not made the interest payment by May 6, 2013, an event of default under the indenture will occur. As of April 8, 2013, there was $45,168,000 aggregate principal amount of 2015 Notes outstanding.

During the cure period, the Company intends to engage in discussions with the holders of the 2015 Notes regarding a forbearance agreement in connection with the interest payment and/or a modification of the indenture governing the 2015 Notes.  As previously disclosed, the Company has engaged a financial advisor to assist it in evaluating potential strategic alternatives, such as a strategic restructuring, refinancing or other transaction to provide it with additional liquidity.
