Equal Energy Confirms Further Renewed Interest From Montclair Energy

OKLAHOMA CITY, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Equal Energy Ltd. (NYSE:EQU) (TSX:EQU.TO) confirms that following the close of markets on September 6, 2013, Equal received a revised non-binding conditional expression of interest (the "Revised Proposal") from Montclair Energy, LLC ("Montclair") to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Equal for an increased price of $4.85 per share in cash. The Revised Proposal was in response to a letter from Michael Doyle, Chairman of Equal Energy Ltd. ("Equal") dated August 28, 2013, in which multiple interested parties, including Montclair, were requested to submit expressions of interest on the terms outlined in such letter. The Revised Proposal from Montclair became publicly available as a result of the amended Schedule 13D filing made on September 9, 2013 by certain affiliates of Montclair.

The Revised Proposal updates Montclair's two previous unsolicited and conditional expressions of interest dated February 27, 2013, which is discussed in our press release of March 25, 2013 (the "March Release") and August 14, 2013, which is discussed in our press release dated August 15, 2013. Consistent with our process disclosed in the March Release, the Special Committee of Equal, along with its financial and legal advisors, will consider the expressions of interest in a deliberate and thoughtful manner with a view to the best interests of Equal. There is no assurance that any expression of interest will result in a definitive agreement or will be implemented, as the company continues to successfully execute on its Hunton drilling and acreage acquisition program.
