With the acquisition, the Company has effectively acquired 41.5% of the total production (approximately 10.0 million cubic feet of natural gas per day, before royalty) and acreage of TBNG and Pinnacle Turkey, Inc. (PTI) as well as all of the oilfield service assets of TBNG. The acquisition of TBNG closed contemporaneously with the closing of the purchase of PTI by Pinnacle Turkey Holding Company, LLC (Pinnacle) and the purchase of another affiliate of MMC by Valeura Energy, Inc. (Valeura). Valeura and Pinnacle have effectively acquired 40.0% and 18.5%, respectively, of the production, acreage, and other assets held by TBNG and PTI.
