"I am excited at the opportunities available for Quest in the next few weeks and months of restructuring. We are currently instituting an aggressive M&A growth strategy that focuses on joint-venture deals, farm-ins and straight acquisitions of small to mid tier target U.S. and foreign oil and gas opportunities with significant growth potential. Further; we are analyzing the multiple opportunities that have been presented to date, so that we may pick the most opportunistic and profitable projects to bring online. I am confident we will be able to finalize some of these potentially profitable deals in the next few weeks," stated Mr. Gibbons. "In addition to our focus on property acquisition, we are also exploring several opportunities in acquiring new technologies in the extraction and fracturing of hydrocarbons for oil wells as well as possibly entering into the oil shale and oil sands arena."

"Although we have been presented with several exciting opportunities, we have a duty to our shareholders to analyze each and every deal presented to us closely in the hopes of producing future revenues necessary to fund our growth and expansion. We aim to maintain a diversified portfolio view of exploration projects, balancing our holdings between safe, secure investments and those higher risk projects that offer greater potential rewards," Mr. Manson added.
