It has been reported that Harvest Natural has entered into exclusive talks to sell its outstanding shares to Pluspetrol for consideration of approximately $373 million. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Harvest Natural for not acting in the Company’s shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process. The transaction may undervalue the Company as Harvest Natural stock traded at $10.25 per share on January 4, 2013 and the Company’s global exploration portfolio is positive with its principal operations in Venezuela and Russia. In addition, the investigation seeks to determine if the Board of Directors' actions or inactions may have led to Harvest Natural’s previous announcement that it intended to file amendments/restatements for the quarters ended March 31, 2012, June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2012.
