Deep Well Receives $5 Million Final Subscription Receipt
Deep Well Oil & Gas, Inc. ("Deep Well") (PINK SHEETS: DWOG) is pleased to announce that it has received on schedule U.S. $5 million which is the final subscription receipt for a private placement financing which in total is U.S. $10 million from a European investor.
Deep Well closed the first half of this equity investment on August 14, 2008 for U.S. $5 million. Deep Well has now closed the second half for a further U.S. $5 million, with the same subscriber, at the price of U.S. $0.40 per unit. This private placement includes: 12,500,000 restricted Deep Well shares, warrants for an additional 12,500,000 Deep Well shares, exercisable at U.S. $0.60 per share and warrants for an additional 2,000,000 Deep Well shares exercisable at U.S. $0.80 per share. Both warrants are exercisable for a period of three years from the closing date.
The majority of the funds are planned to be used to drill six wells, with an optional 7th well. As previously announced Deep Well has contracted a drilling company. Drilling is expected to commence as soon as weather permits since the ground has to be frozen to enable heavy equipment transportation. The well sites to be drilled are presently being prepared for spudding.
