Firstly, U.S. Energy Corp. announced that the Company has completed its previously announced acquisition of operated oil and gas producing properties. In addition, the lands are located in Anderson and Henderson Counties, TX. 

Moreover, the agreement is for a total cash consideration of $11.875 million, less purchase price adjustments.

The successful closing of this highly accretive acquisition continues to build U.S. Energy’s production base, realizable upside inventory, and free cash flow profile. This acquisition further diversifies our commodity mix and when combined with our existing balanced portfolio, allows us the optionality to allocate capital to the Company’s highest rate of return projects. As we move into the second half of 2022, we remain focused on disciplined capital allocation across our asset base, the preservation of our strong balance sheet, and maintaining our shareholder returns program through internally generated free cash flow.
