Hyperdynamics Reaches Settlement Agreement in Lawsuit with Hedge Funds


HOUSTON, Jan. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyperdynamics Corporation (OTCQX: HDYN) today announced that it has reached a settlement agreement in a lawsuit filed against the Company in 2012 by five hedge funds that had invested in the Company's common stock.

Under the terms of the settlement agreement, Hyperdynamics will issue to the plaintiffs a total of 600,000 common shares of new HDYN stock, and it will cause a payment to be made of $1.35 million in cash that will be covered under its director and officer insurance policy. The plaintiffs are restricted from selling the shares before April 1, 2017, at the earliest, under the terms of the agreement.

The common stock will be issued following a fairness hearing to be held pursuant to Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. If the presiding court in the case does not approve the issuance of the common stock, then Hyperdynamics will file a registration statement registering the shares for resale by the hedge funds, but the cost of that filing to the Company will be capped at $25,000.

The plaintiff group includes Iroquois Master Fund Ltd., Hudson Bay Master Fund Ltd., Kingsbrook Opportunities Master Fund LP, and Parkfield Funding, LLC, as assignee of original investors, Cranshire Capital Master Fund, Ltd., and Freestone Advantage Partners II, LP.

"We are pleased to close the final lawsuit against the Company so that we may focus on preparing for our upcoming exploration drilling campaign offshore the Republic Guinea this Spring," said Hyperdynamics President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Leonard.
