GulfSlope Energy Retains MZ Group as Investor Relations Advisor

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - January 14, 2015) - GulfSlope Energy (OTCQB: GSPE) today announced that it has retained MZ Group as its investor relations advisor. MZ Group will assist GulfSlope in developing and executing a comprehensive corporate communications and investor relations program while assisting the Company in expanding its shareholder base. Derek Gradwell, Senior Vice President of Natural Resources for MZ North America, will be the Company's primary investor contact going forward.

"This is the ideal time to ramp up our investor outreach efforts," commented John N. Seitz, GulfSlope's CEO. "We represent a unique story and investment opportunity among public E&P companies, particularly in the current commodity price environment. GulfSlope's offshore Gulf of Mexico properties are estimated to contain more than 2 billion barrels of oil equivalent resource potential and we believe the potential economics associated with these properties gives GulfSlope a competitive advantage relative to other E&P Companies. It is rare for E&P companies of our size to have resource exposure of this magnitude and the requisite technical expertise to unlock their value. We look forward to relaying that message as well as new developments to a growing audience while developing our vast prospects in the Gulf of Mexico."

"GulfSlope has all of the characteristics that we look for in our clients," stated Ted Haberfield, President of MZ Group North America. "This management team has significant technical expertise, the proven ability to find oil and natural gas in the Gulf of Mexico, and a history of creating immense value for shareholders. They have demonstrated their desire to duplicate that success by licensing 2.2 million acres of 3D seismic data and subsequently acquiring 21 lease blocks with tremendous resource potential. The level of scientific knowledge and industry leadership exhibited by their team is something we only find with large independent E&P companies. It is our pleasure to be working with GulfSlope and we look forward to implementing an aggressive IR strategy."
