GeoGlobal Announces Sale of Shares in ILDE

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 11, 2012) - GeoGlobal Resources Inc. ("GeoGlobal" or the "Company") (NYSE MKT:GGR)(NYSE Amex:GGR) today announced that it has sold 8,500,000 shares acquired in the Securities Purchase and Exchange Agreement (the "Agreement") by and between the Company and The Israel Land Development Company - Energy Ltd. ("ILDE"), dated as of November 21, 2011. GeoGlobal sold the shares of ILDE through two Israeli investment houses, on an off market basis, at a 12% discount to market due to the shares being restricted until the end of August 2012. Net proceeds to GeoGlobal from the sale of the shares are approximately US$1.4 million.

"We sold a modest portion of our holding in ILDE purely for working capital purposes and retain a significant holding in ILDE. We continue to believe there is real value in our investment in that organization," said Paul B. Miller, President and CEO of GeoGlobal. "The proceeds from the sale will be directly applied to meeting our capital commitments in the Myra and Sara Blocks. The drilling of Myra-1 is progressing as planned and we anticipate reaching TD in August as previously reported. This is an exciting time for GGR and its partners in the region and we continue to be excited by the prospects."
