   - Increases optionality with expanded inventory of high-quality, multi-year investment options;
   - Potential to capture US$30 to US$50 million in synergistic cost savings over the next seven years as a result of the combination that can meaningfully improve margins and enhance future cash flow generation;
   - Immediately accretive to key metrics and significantly increases future Adjusted EBITDAX(2) generation potential;
   - Allows for improved public market valuation multiples based on VAALCO’s significantly enhanced scale and profile post-closing; and
   - Expands the Board of Directors to seven members with the addition of David Cook, Edward LaFehr and Timothy Marchant.
