--Acquisition Includes Revenue Producing Interests in the Haynesville Shale of Northern Louisiana--
FRISCO, TX - (NewMediaWire) - June 16, 2021 - Verde Bio Holdings, Inc. (OTC: VBHI), an oil and gas investment Company, today announced that it has closed on a major Haynesville Shale deal for $800,000 in cash. Verde is entitled to the cash flow from production attributable to the acquisition as of June 1, 2021.
Verde has now closed a total of 16 mineral and royalty deals including the acquisition announced in this press release. Verde has revenue producing holdings in 18 counties in eight states. The current portfolio consists of 55% oil and 45% natural gas.
Current expected combined revenue from the 16 acquisitions is approximately $94,000 per month or more than $1,128,000 on an annualized basis once Verde is in pay status on all wells.
The interest being acquired is located in Bienville Parish, Louisiana and is operated by Texas based Aethon Energy Management. Aethon is a leading Haynesville natural gas company which is currently running multiple rigs in the area.
Currently there are four wells producing across the Verde acreage resulting in approximately $12,000 per month in revenue to Verde. With this large acreage position, there is tremendous upside potential for new wells to be drilled as Aethon is actively developing the area in the Haynesville and the Mid-Bossier Shale formations.
All assets acquired also provide Verde with the benefit of increases in commodities pricing. These assets were bought on a basis of historically low pricing. With increasing oil and gas prices, it is possible that current revenue could also increase in the next couple of months.
Scott Cox, CEO of Verde, said, “We pride ourselves on creativity, flexibility, and reliability, and we are delighted to close this current transaction. This acquisition is located in the active heart of the Haynesville Shale. The wells are in an excellent area that are just out of the decline curve with stable monthly production and with the upside of more wells to be drilled on the acreage. We have great confidence both in Aethon as an operator and in these assets and we look forward to jointly benefiting as they continue to operate and develop. The Haynesville Shale is a massive dry natural gas formation in Northwest Louisiana and East Texas which was discovered in 2008.
“This transaction continues to confirm and highlight our business plan of acquiring diversified mineral and royalty portfolios with the current downturn of oil and gas prices. 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 have begun to build a highly diversified portfolio of revenue producing interests and look forward to continuing to build on these through future strategic acquisitions,” Mr. Cox concluded.
