Of the non-cash portion of equity, $1,078,000 represented the exchange of related party debt for the Company’s shares while $308,000 represented the exchange of other debt amounts held by arm’s length parties for the Company’s shares; and
- Executed a “Funding and Participation Agreement” on December 22, 2017 with a private U.S. based investment firm to underwrite approximately 67% of the capital costs of the initial well and 50% of the capital costs of subsequent wells, if any, at the Company’s Woodrush oil exploration program scheduled to commence in the 1st quarter of 2018. The private investment firm will earn a 15% gross overriding royalty on a well-by-well basis.
