Ring Energy, Inc. Announces Closing of $19.3 Million Private Placement

Management Outlines Operations and Capital Budget for 2013

MIDLAND, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ring Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: RNGE) (“Ring” or the “Company”) today announced it has raised approximately $19.3 million through a private placement of approximately 3.5 million restricted shares of its common stock at a price of $5.50 per share. Net proceeds after expenses are estimated to be $18.5 million. The proceeds from the private placement will be used for the continued enhancement and development of Ring’s Permian Basin assets located in Andrews County, Texas, site preparation on the Company’s Kansas leases which are scheduled for initial drilling in 2014 and general acquisition and leasing activity. Mr. Tim Rochford, Ring’s Chairman of the Board commented, “The receipt of these funds, in combination with our existing $10 million credit facility, will allow us to move ahead with our development plans in Andrews County while continuing to aggressively pursue additional acquisition opportunities.”

The Company has announced its capital budget for 2013 as approximately $31.5 million. The funds will be allocated primarily to the continued development and infrastructure enhancements at its Andrews County, Texas properties. Management has forecasted the drilling of 30 to 35 new development wells and the re-stimulation of 15 to 20 existing wells. “We have already moved a rig onto one of our central basin properties and are currently drilling our fourth well,” said Mr. Kelly Hoffman, Chief Executive Officer. “We intend on keeping that rig busy the remainder of this year. Our operations team has been doing a great job of reducing costs and increasing efficiencies by working closely with all of our service vendors. We will continue to evaluate our current budget as the year progresses and make any necessary changes which we believe would result in increased shareholder value.”
