Ring Energy Announces Successful Results of Fall 2021 Redetermination of Senior Credit Facility
THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Dec. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ring Energy, Inc. (NYSE American: REI) (“Ring” or the “Company”) today announced that the borrowing base under its senior revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) was recently successfully reaffirmed at $350 million.
- Reaffirmation of the borrowing base at $350 million;
- Prior hedging requirement of 3,100 barrels per day of crude oil sales for calendar 2022 remains unchanged and is fully covered by hedges currently in place; and
- Next regularly scheduled bank redetermination for the Company is scheduled to occur during May 2022.
Paul D. McKinney, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The positive outcome of our fall 2021 bank redetermination reflects our banking group’s confidence in our ongoing plans and provides financial flexibility supporting our capital spending programs and ability to pay down debt. We look forward to more fully benefitting from the significantly improved oil price environment as our 2021 hedges roll off on December 31. With only 3,129 barrels per day of crude oil sales currently hedged for 2022, we believe we are in a stronger position to execute an opportunistic hedging strategy to underpin our future cash flow that will support our strategic initiatives designed to enhance efficiencies, further strengthen the balance sheet and prudently grow the business.”
