Lone Star Value Fights For Shareholder Rights At Callon Petroleum

NEW YORK, Dec. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lone Star Value Management, LLC (together with its affiliates and director nominees, "Lone Star Value"), a significant shareholder in Callon Petroleum Company, a Delaware corporation ("CPE" or the "Company") (NYSE: CPE), with ownership of approximately 6.3% of CPE's outstanding shares of common stock, today announced that an affiliate of Lone Star Value has delivered a formal nomination of director candidates for election to the board of directors of CPE (the "Board") at the upcoming 2014 annual meeting of CPE's shareholders (the "2014 Annual Meeting").

Lone Star Value is dedicated to maximizing shareholder value and improving corporate governance at CPE.  Lone Star Value believes CPE is deeply undervalued and substantial change is needed on the Board to ensure that appropriate actions are taken to prevent further shareholder dilution, lower CPE's cost of capital, and create value for all CPE shareholders. These changes should include the addition of new highly-qualified, independent directors on the Board with relevant credentials for CPE, as well as direct shareholder representation to ensure the best interests of all shareholders are appropriately represented in the boardroom at all times.

In the past few months, Lone Star Value has clearly expressed its views to the Board and management of CPE and has made every effort to engage in constructive discussions that would lead to meaningful improvement in the Board and corporate governance practices of CPE.  Lone Star Value believes the suggestions it has made would meaningfully improve shareholder rights and representation at CPE.  Unfortunately, to date the Company has rejected all suggestions made by Lone Star Value.

Accordingly, Lone Star Value has nominated two highly-qualified director candidates for election to the Board at the 2014 Annual Meeting. Lone Star Value's candidates, Jeffrey E. Eberwein and Matthew Regis Bob, have significant and relevant experience and exceptional track records of identifying and executing on opportunities to unlock value for the benefit of all shareholders.  Lone Star Value's director nominees possess a well-balanced mix of skill sets to ensure that the Company evaluates, with an open mind and a keen sense of urgency, all alternative strategies to determine the best path forward to maximize value for all shareholders.

Further, Lone Star Value firmly believes that CPE must significantly improve its corporate governance structure and practices.  For example, in its discussions with the Board and management, Lone Star Value has strongly suggested that the Board should immediately take the necessary steps to declassify its structure and to eliminate all supermajority vote requirements from its organizational documents.  These changes are imperative to ensure good corporate governance and shareholder rights.
