Matador Resources Company Announces Results Of 2014 Annual Meeting Of Shareholders And Provides Operational Update

Matador Resources Company (NYSE: MTDR) (“Matador” or the “Company”), an independent energy company engaged in the exploration, development, production and acquisition of oil and natural gas resources, with an emphasis on oil and natural gas shale and other unconventional plays and with a current focus on its Eagle Ford operations in South Texas and its Permian Basin operations in Southeast New Mexico and West Texas, today announced the preliminary results of its 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. Matador was pleased to welcome close to 200 shareholders, employees, family members and friends to the meeting. At the meeting, shareholders elected Joseph Wm. Foran, Chairman and CEO, David M. Laney and Reynald A. Baribault to serve three year terms on the Company’s Board of Directors. Each nominee received the support of more than 99% of the votes cast. The shareholders also approved the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers in an advisory “Say-on-Pay” vote, with more than 98% of the votes cast in favor of the proposal, and ratified the appointment of KPMG LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2014. The final results of the Annual Meeting will be included in a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Annual Meeting of Shareholders follows the May 29, 2014 closing of the previously announced underwritten public offering of 7,500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. Total estimated proceeds of the offering to the Company, before estimated offering expenses, were approximately $182 million.

Matador intends to use the net proceeds from this offering primarily to fund a portion of its capital expenditures, including to continue to operate a fourth rig in the Permian Basin throughout the remainder of 2014, allowing Matador to operate two drilling rigs for the development of its acreage in the Eagle Ford shale play and two drilling rigs for the exploration and development of its acreage in the Wolfcamp and Bone Spring plays in the Permian Basin. Matador also intends to use net proceeds from this offering to fund targeted acquisitions of additional acreage in the Permian Basin, as well as in the Eagle Ford shale and the Haynesville shale, for its participation in additional non-operated Haynesville wells and for other general working capital needs.
