As previously announced, the Special Committee of the Board of Directors of EXCO Resources, Inc. (NYSE: XCO) has terminated its review of strategic alternatives to maximize shareholder value. In light of this development, EXCO intends to release after market close on Tuesday, July 12, 2011, updated investor materials including financial, operating and reserve information. EXCO will host a conference call on Wednesday, July 13, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. (Dallas time) to discuss the contents of this release and respond to questions. Please call (800) 309-5788 if you wish to participate, and ask for the EXCO conference call ID #82762005. The conference call will also be webcast on EXCO’s website at www.excoresources.com under the Investor Relations tab. Douglas H. Miller, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of EXCO Resources commented, “The proposal initiated by me in 2010 assumed an all-equity financed transaction. Due to the length of the process, current market conditions, including volatility in natural gas prices, and other factors, I was unable to obtain or retain sufficient equity investments to complete the process. I could possibly have completed the financing with debt, however I believe such an approach would not have been in the best interest of the Company. EXCO is continuing its outstanding growth record. During the duration of the process, we grew production by 55% and made three acquisitions totaling approximately $385 million consisting primarily of undrilled acreage. These strategic acquisitions increased our revenue interest in certain existing Haynesville/Bossier Shale locations and added approximately 900 gross undrilled locations in the Marcellus Shale. We are finalizing our production and financial targets for the remainder of the year, however we currently expect full year 2011 annual production growth of approximately 60% as compared to 2010. I appreciate the support and dedication of our management team and employees during the process and look forward to EXCO's continued growth.”
