Verde Bio Holdings, Inc. Announces Acquisition of Haynesville Shale Mineral and Royalty Interest
Verde's 19th Acquisition Includes Revenue Producing Natural Gas Interests in Desoto Parish, Louisiana
FRISCO,Â TX, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Verde Bio Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: VBHI), a growing oil and gas Company, today announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire revenue producing mineral and royalty interests in the prolific Haynesville Shale of Northern Louisiana, held by a private seller for a purchase price of $3.2 million in cash. The Company continues to build a diversified, revenue-producing portfolio of high-quality assets. Today's announcement marks the nineteenth acquisition by Verde to date.
The interest acquired by Verde currently produces approximately $70,000 per month in revenue and Verde is entitled to the cash flow from production attributable to the acquisition beginning on or after May 1, 2021.
The interest being acquired covers approximately 5,760 gross acres in Desoto Parish, LA and is operated by E&P leader, Southwestern Energy and Diversified Energy. Currently, there are 31 wells producing from the Haynesville and Cotton Valley formations and another 13 inactive wells, which will likely be reworked and brought online in the near future, along with an excellent outlook for more wells on the acreage given Southwestern's aggressive drilling schedule and well performance in the immediate area of the acreage being acquired.
Scott Cox, CEO of Verde, said, "We are excited about the interests being acquired through this acquisition. Deals like this with large well count and gross acreage exposure are difficult to find at fair prices. This is a great natural gas addition to our portfolio and we are proud to have built a Company which is creative and flexible enough to take advantage of these deals when they become available."
Mr. Cox added: "We have great confidence in these assets, as well as the Haynesville and we look forward to jointly benefiting as they continue to operate and develop the resource. Southwestern and Diversified are highly reputable, active and well-funded operators and we are very pleased that this is one of their core areas. We have high expectations for this property and its future."
"Acquisitions like this continue to confirm our growth plan of acquiring diversified minerals and royalties and building a strong portfolio while taking advantage of the historic buyer's market in the industry currently. We remain focused on executing our business plan and creating long-term value for our shareholders. Through our balanced approach of capital raising and acquisitions, we are building a highly diversified portfolio of revenue producing interests and look forward to continuing to build on these through future strategic acquisitions," Mr. Cox concluded.
