Signature Exploration's Chairman and CEO Discusses New Corporate Strategy to Increase Stockholder Value
HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 05/31/11 -- The following is a statement from our new Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, Alan Gaines, speaking on behalf of the new management of Signature Exploration (OTCBB: SXLP), addressing our stockholders by outlining the Company's strategy which, we believe will create significant value for our shareholders.
"I believe that the current landscape for acquiring oil and gas properties is quite compelling, and, at the same time, challenging. As stewards of this company, we will endeavor to identify the most attractive opportunities while adhering to strict internal transaction and risk management guidelines and maintaining regard for both engineering and capital structure. We will strive to insure that incremental economics, with respect to the drillbit, generate high rates of return. By doing so, Signature expects to benefit from management's large proprietary deal flow, extensive industry contacts, and relationships within the energy financial community.
"We will intelligently finance accretive acquisitions, keeping a close eye on our debt to total equity capitalization ratio, using debt only for high rate of return development projects, and making sure that there is sufficient equity to insure completion of those projects. Management believes this strategy will create substantial value for our shareholders.
"Signature's management has a proven track record regarding the identification, acquisition, drilling, and operation of producing and nonproducing properties. It is our belief that our stockholders will be best served primarily via the acquisition of leasehold acreage, whereby we can create value through the drillbit. Companies that are successful in this endeavor are generally rewarded with excellent recognition in the public marketplace, which in turn translates into higher than industry norm multiples of cash flow and a meaningful premium to net asset value.
"In summation, Signature will carefully consider accretive acquisitions with a constant focus on risk mitigation, a low cost operating structure, and scalable upside coupled with sound incremental economics. Combined with our ability to find new reserves and add production via the drillbit, management is confident that we will build Signature into a large company, always keeping in mind that is it our mission to increase value for our stockholders, management, and employees. I greatly look forward to working with our highly experienced Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Amiel David, and Chief Financial Officer, Steven Weldon, in the future. I am confident we will Identify, and close, a meaningful transaction in the near future."
