Croff Announces Plan of Corporate Division

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - November 12, 2007) - Croff Enterprises, Inc. (OTCBB: COFF) announced today that the board of directors has adopted a Plan of Corporate Division and Reorganization. The plan divides Croff into a new private company containing the assets pledged to the Preferred B shares, and the existing public company holding the remaining assets. The new private company will contain all the oil and gas assets and liabilities and will be owned by the Preferred B shareholders. The Preferred B shares currently have all of the oil and gas assets pledged to them. The common shares will own the remaining assets in the currently traded public company.

The Plan requires the formation of a new Utah corporation to be known as Croff Oil Company, as a separate corporation from Croff Enterprises, Inc. All of the oil and gas assets, bank accounts, and liabilities will be exchanged with this new corporation. Each Croff Preferred B shareholder will be entitled to one restricted common share in the new Croff Oil Company for each preferred B share currently held. Croff Enterprises, Inc. will continue as a public corporation seeking merger, acquisition, or other reorganization opportunities.

The Plan is subject to submittal of a Proxy and approval by Croff shareholders. If approved, three of the existing directors, Richard Mandel, Gerald Jensen, and Julian Jensen, will serve as the initial board of directors of Croff Oil Company.
