CNSV ACQUIRES 100% OF OIL & GAS RIGHTS ON 10,000 ACRES IN EASTERN KENTUCKY FOR $200,000 IN CASH AND $800,000 IN COMMON STOCK (415,584 SHARES) VALUED AT $1.92 PER SHARE
Henderson, NV - September 26, 2008 - Consolidation Services, Inc., (“CNSV” or the “Company”) (OTCBB:CNSV), which is engaged in acquiring land for organic farming operations and developing unproven energy resources on some of its acquired properties, announces the closing on an agreement to acquire 100% of the oil and natural gas rights on approximately 10,000 acres in eastern Kentucky from Eastern Kentucky Land Corporation (“EK”), for the total consideration of $1 million. CNSV used a combination of $200,000 cash and $800,000 (415,584 shares valued at $1.925 per share) of restricted common stock to close the transaction. The shares will be sold subject to a lock-up/leak out agreement, with weekly sales of up to 7,992 shares commencing on April 1, 2009 and for a period of fifty-two weeks thereafter on a non-cumulative basis. The oil and gas rights, which management believes provide the potential for approximately 300 - 400 natural gas well drilling sites, are located on the same acreage that the Company recently acquired an interest in through its purchase of a fifty percent (50%) equity ownership interest in Buckhorn Resources, LLC, the owner of such land, including the rights to any coal resources that may exist on or under such land.
“Utilizing a majority of restricted common shares and a smaller amount of cash for the acquisition of 100% of the oil and natural gas rights on this sizable tract of land enables CNSV to continue to accelerate its strategic objective to generate cash flow from the development of unproven energy resources believed to be situated on the approximately 10,000 acres, while allowing the sellers the potential to realize greater value from the sale of the assets in the event of future increases in value of the stock consideration component received. We believe the transaction will provide long-term benefits to our shareholders,” said Dr. Johnny R. Thomas, President/CEO of CNSV.
CNSV is engaged in acquiring land for organic certification and grazing of beef, dairy and wild game on grass fed pastures. Much of these acquired lands will also be utilized in connection with the Company’s energy development plans in the near-term, prior to reclamation and subsequent use in connection with CNSV’s planned organic production activities. CNSV is also seeking to acquire organic and natural food companies in the food services industry. The CNSV business model is unique because it focuses on acquiring land to produce both food and energy. The Company intends to make energy resource recovery and organic/natural farming work synergistically because modern recovery methods not only avoid damage to the land, but also make the land more conducive to grazing by filing in the valleys and leveling the peaks, as well as enhancing arability.
