OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- PHX Minerals Inc. (NYSE: PHX) ("PHX" or the "Company") today announced that it has entered into an amendment to its revolving credit facility (“Credit Facility”) under which the borrowing base of the Credit Facility has been increased from $27.5 million to $32.0 million in connection with its regularly scheduled semi-annual redetermination. Additionally, PHX has entered into purchase and sale agreements to acquire 426 total net royalty acres in Caddo Parish, La., for $5,787,272 in cash from two private sellers, subject to customary closing adjustments (the “Acquisition”). The Acquisition will be funded with a combination of cash on hand and borrowings under the Company’s Credit Facility. Pro forma the Acquisition, the Company’s total debt drawn on the Credit Facility will be approximately $20.0 million.  The Board of Directors of PHX unanimously approved the Acquisition, which is expected to close by Dec. 15, 2021.

Chad Stephens, President and CEO, said, "the Acquisition assets provide almost immediate cash flow from the wells being completed and do a nice job of helping replace the volumes associated with the previously announced divestiture of some of our legacy working interest wellbores. The increase in the borrowing base of our Credit Facility is a reflection of a much stronger PHX with an improving asset base and high-quality prospects."
