Epsilon Energy Ltd. Concludes Strategic Alternative Process

CONCORD, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 13, 2013) - Epsilon Energy Ltd. ("Epsilon" or the "Company") (TSX:EPS) announced the Company did not receive a proposal as of the May 10th, 2013 deadline under its Strategic Alternative Process. The Strategic Alternative Process was undertaken by the Board, as recommended by Epsilon's largest shareholder at the time the process was initiated.

"We entered into the review of strategic alternatives from a position of strength, in terms of both robust Marcellus upstream and midstream operations and cash flow," commented Zoran Arandjelovic, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Epsilon. "The process over the past three months, although not resulting in an acceptable offer for the whole of the Company, did highlight the quality of our Marcellus asset base and continued shareholder value growth opportunities. Although the Board believes the Company and its shareholders are best served by our continued focus on the development of upstream and midstream assets, it remains open minded to all alternatives that would enhance shareholders value". The Company and its Board of Directors have authorized its financial advisor, Evercore Partners, to continue dealing with interested parties in the event that their efforts result in a proposal that the Board deems in the best interest of the Company and its shareholders.

Epsilon is a North American onshore exploration and production company with a current focus in the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania, Bakken Shale in Saskatchewan and Basal Belly River in Alberta.
