Empire Energy Group Ltd (EEG.AX) Issued Capital and Liquidity Update

Sydney, Australia, Sep 29, 2020 - (ABN Newswire) - Empire Energy Group Limited (ASX:EEG) (OTCMKTS:EEGUF) is pleased to provide shareholders the following issued capital and liquidity update.

In the past four weeks, Empire has received total gross proceeds of more than A$8 million, including A$1.9 million from Directors of the Company, from the exercise of unlisted options which were issued to investors in conjunction with a capital raising conducted in 2018.

The funds will be utilised for general corporate purposes including the further exploration and appraisal of Empire's Northern Territory properties.

Empire's cash balance is now A$21 MILLION.

This cash balance is after prepayment of approximately A$5 million of costs associated with the Carpentaria-1 drilling program including rig mobilisation and demobilisation, equipment (casing, drill bits, drilling fluids and miscellaneous consumable items) and ancillary services (mudlogging and wireline logging).

Comments from Managing Director Alex Underwood: "We are grateful for the continued support of shareholders, with over 75% of the September 2020 options exercised. The additional funds raised from the exercise of options, following the recent A$10 million placement, put Empire in a strong position as we progress our Northern Territory exploration program. The drilling of Carpentaria-1 is proceeding well, and we look forward to sharing the results with shareholders in the weeks ahead."

Empire's issued capital is summarised at Appendix A in link below.
