Prospera’s strategic evaluation suggests equity values are not appropriately accounting for the future potential of its asset values (i.e., 350 million+ barrels in place). The company is focused on minimal dilution financing options moving forward and if fully subscribed, this debt financing would only represent less than 2% equity dilution.
Prospera intends to use the net proceeds of the debt offering, cashflow from operations, and substantial capital raised from warrant exercises, to accelerate the company’s planned drill program this spring, summer, and fall to further production growth. There are significant economic advantages in drilling during the upcoming summertime.
Parties interested in participating in this debt offering should contact the company immediately. Insiders may participate in this offering. Prospera is relying upon exemptions contained in MI61-101 from the requirements for an independent evaluation and minority shareholder approval. This offering is subject to approval from the TSX Venture exchange.
Prospera is a public oil and gas exploration, exploitation and development company focusing on conventional oil and gas reservoirs in Western Canada. Prospera will utilize experience and knowledge to develop, acquire, and drill assets with potential for primary and secondary recovery.
