Exterra Energy, Inc. Announces New Management Acquisition Strategy, Asset Purchase, Reverse Stock Split

AMARILLO, TX--(Marketwire - April 27, 2009) - Exterra Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: EENR) announced today that on April 15, 2009, the Company's Board of Directors approved an agreement for the acquisition of certain mineral leases with proven undeveloped oil and gas reserves in the Newark East (Barnett Shale) Gas Field of North Texas, in consideration of the payment of 5,603,577 shares of restricted common stock of the Company following the effective date of a reverse stock split by the Company.

Todd R. Royal, President of Exterra Energy, Inc., "I am very excited about the future of Exterra Energy with our most recent acquisition consisting of mineral leases with proven undeveloped oil and gas reserves. The Engineering Firm of Harper and Associates has identified 6 PUDS, on the leases, in Parker and Jack Counties, Texas. With these recently acquired assets we will improve the company balance sheet significantly and immediately begin our development and acquisition roll up strategy of acquiring undervalued oil and gas assets to increase shareholder value." Mr. Royal went on to state, "The value of the properties acquired was based upon the discounted value of the proved undeveloped reserves done by a third party, Harper and Associates, and the trading price of the Company's shares."

Robert Royal, Chairman and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased with the recent board decisions including the approval of the above transaction April 15, 2009, at the Special Director's Meeting, and on April 15, 2009, the Company's Board of Directors approved a 60 for 1 reverse stock split of the issued and outstanding shares, to be effective at the beginning of trading May 4, 2009." Mr. Royal went on to state, "Our strategy for the company in the public markets is to improve the company's balance sheet through development of the Company's mineral assets and strategic acquisitions of undervalued properties, by using our assets, equity marketing, commercial banking relationships and stock restructuring to improve earnings per share and move the public company to a senior exchange."
