Samson Resources II, LLC To Market East Texas And North Louisiana Assets As Part Of Strategic Review Outcome

TULSA, Okla., May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Samson Resources II, LLC (“Samson” or the “Company”) announced today that following a strategic review of the Company’s core competencies and underlying reserve and production potential conducted by Jefferies LLC and Houlihan Lokey Capital, Inc., the Company has decided to market for sale its assets in East Texas and North Louisiana through a broad marketing process to be conducted by Jefferies and Houlihan Lokey.  Samson owns approximately 210,000 net acres (which excludes its fee minerals and other small non-operated working interests) in the East Texas and North Louisiana areas with an 86% working interest in the leasehold, the vast majority of which the Company operates.  Samson will be accepting offers on the assets marketed as a whole and as four separate sub-packages; specifically, North Louisiana, Shelby Trough, East Texas Haynesville and Gregg-Rusk-Nacogdoches.  The Data Room for interested parties who execute a confidentiality agreement will open in late May 2017.

Samson emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy on March 1, 2017 with an improved financial position after discharging approximately $4 billion in debt.  The Company also owns significant acreage in the Powder River and Greater Green River basins of Wyoming, which it intends to hold and develop.
