Vermilion Energy Inc. Announces CEO Departure and the Appointments of Executive Chairman and President

Vermilion Energy Inc. Announces CEO Departure and the Appointments of Executive Chairman and President CALGARY, May 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Vermilion Energy Inc. ("Vermilion", "We", "Our", "Us" or the "Company") (TSX, NYSE: VET) announces that Anthony Marino has stepped down as President and Chief Executive Officer and as a director of the Company, effective immediately. Mr. Marino made many contributions to Vermilion during his eight-year tenure with the Company, including various improvements to the cost structure and associated capital efficiencies. These core competencies will continue to serve the Company well moving into the future. Vermilion's Board of Directors (the "Board") would like to thank Mr. Marino for his contributions to the Company. The Board is pleased to announce that Lorenzo Donadeo has been appointed Executive Chairman. Mr. Donadeo has 39 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. He was a co-founder of Vermilion in 1994 and has served as Chairman of the Board since March 1, 2016. From 2014 to 2016, Mr. Donadeo served as the Chief Executive Officer. From 2003 to 2014, he served as President and Chief Executive Officer and from 1996 to 2003 he served as Vermilion's Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Donadeo has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering (with distinction) from the University of Alberta. The Board is also pleased to announce that Curtis Hicks is rejoining the Company and has been appointed President. Mr. Hicks has 40 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. Most recently, he was Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of Vermilion from 2003 to 2018. During his time at Vermilion, the Company was recognized as one of the premier Canadian oil and gas companies with a strong financial structure backstopping disciplined capital allocation. He was a key contributor to Vermilion's success and culture during his tenure. Mr. Hicks is a Chartered Professional Accountant and has a Bachelor of Commerce degree (with distinction) from the University of Saskatchewan. In lieu of filling the role of Chief Executive Officer, Vermilion has created an Executive Committee consisting of a minimum of five senior executives from within the Company. It will include the Executive Chairman, President, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Executive Vice-President People and Culture and Vice-President of Business Development. The Executive Committee structure was successfully utilized by Vermilion in the past and has been formally re-established. It will be used by the organization to review and approve key organizational, financial, operational and strategic decisions for the Company. This leadership structure has proven to be a highly collaborative decision-making model that draws upon the collective knowledge, experience, business acumen and skills of the senior management team. Larry MacDonald will continue as lead director. Mr. Donadeo and Mr. Hicks know the Company well. They know the assets, the people and the corporate culture and have a positive track record of long-term value creation at Vermilion. Stated Lorenzo Donadeo, "In these challenging times, Vermilion will redouble its focus on its core business principles that have served it well over its successful 26-year history. These principles are based on a conservative, long-term focus on balance sheet strength and capital discipline to generate strong returns. This has resulted in Vermilion providing shareholders with over $3.8 billion, or $40.20 per share, of dividends over the last 17 years. This approach has also helped build an organization underpinned by a high quality, high netback diversified asset base with strong free cash flow generation. Through Vermilion's history we have experienced, and more importantly learned from, several previous severe downturns. To that end, while our long-term strategic plan is unchanged, we have acted quickly to ensure the Company can emerge from the current downturn in a strong financial position. This, together with our talented and dedicated organizational team gives me confidence that we can successfully navigate the Company through this very difficult time and position Vermilion for continued long-term value creation." About Vermilion Vermilion is an international energy producer that seeks to create value through the acquisition, exploration, development and optimization of producing properties in North America, Europe and Australia. Our business model emphasizes organic production growth augmented with value-adding acquisitions, along with returning capital to investors when economically warranted. Vermilion is targeting growth in production primarily through the exploitation of light oil and liquids-rich natural gas conventional resource plays in Canada and the United States, the exploration and development of high impact natural gas opportunities in the Netherlands and Germany, and through oil drilling and workover programs in France and Australia. Vermilion holds a 20% working interest in the Corrib gas field in Ireland. Vermilion's priorities are health and safety, the environment, and profitability, in that order.

Unit Corporation Voluntarily Files Chapter 11 Cases to Restructure Balance Sheet

Unit Corporation Voluntarily Files Chapter 11 Cases to Restructure Balance Sheet Operations to Continue as Normal Enters into Restructuring Support Agreement with Certain CreditorsSecures Approximately $36 Million in Debtor-in-Possession Financing TULSA, Okla., May 22 /BusinessWire/ -- Unit Corporation (NYSE- UNT) ("the Company") today announced that it has filed voluntary petitions under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division (the "Court") to effectuate a pre-negotiated Chapter 11 plan of reorganization (the "Plan") that will reduce the Company's funded debt obligations by more than $650 million and right-size the Company's balance sheet for go-forward operations. The Company expects to continue to operate in the ordinary course throughout the Chapter 11 process without material disruption to its vendors, customers, or partners. Importantly, the Company's 50%-owned midstream affiliate, Superior Pipeline Company, L.L.C. and its subsidiaries ("Superior"), is not a debtor in the Chapter 11 cases and is unaffected by the Company's Chapter 11 filing. Additionally, the Company does not anticipate that payments to vendors and suppliers of its subsidiary Unit Drilling Company will be impacted. The Chapter 11 petitions were filed in accordance with a Restructuring Support Agreement (the "RSA") between the Company, the holders of more than 70% of the Company's 6.625% senior subordinated notes due 2021 (the "Subordinated Notes") and all of the lenders under the Company's Senior Credit Agreement (the "RBL Lenders"). The RSA sets forth the principal terms of the restructuring transaction that will be effectuated by the Plan, including an equitization of all of the outstanding Subordinated Notes and the replacement of the existing RBL facility and the DIP financing with a $180 million exit financing facility. Consummation of the Plan will be subject to confirmation by the Court and other conditions in the Plan, the RSA and related transaction documents. "Like many companies in the oil and gas industry, we have felt the impact of the severe downturn in commodity prices, which has only worsened with the COVID-19 pandemic," said David T. Merrill, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While facing this challenging environment, we have worked diligently to explore a variety of strategic alternatives to cut costs, improve our liquidity and address near-term debt maturities. We are pleased to receive the support of our lenders and noteholders and are confident that, on emergence from Chapter 11, we will be better positioned to meet our challenges and realize the potential of our Company." With the filing, and subject to court approval, the Company has received a commitment from the RBL Lenders that are parties to the RSA to provide up to $36 million in debtor-in-possession ("DIP") financing. The Company anticipates up to $18 million will be available on an interim basis. This financing, combined with the Company's usual operating cash flows, is expected to provide sufficient liquidity for the Company to continue to operate in the ordinary course through the restructuring process. The Company has filed several customary motions with the court seeking authorization to support its operations while this process is ongoing, including authority to continue payment of employee wages, salaries and benefits without interruption, and to continue paying all vendors and suppliers of Unit Drilling Company in the ordinary course of business. The Company expects to receive court approval for these requests. Additional information about these Chapter 11 cases can be accessed via PACER at https://www.pacer.gov and, subject to the Court's approval, at https://cases.primeclerk.com/UnitCorporation or by calling (877) 720-6581 (Toll-Free) or (646) 979-4412 (Local).

Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP is serving as legal advisor and Greenhill & Co., LLC is serving as financial advisor to an ad hoc group of holders of Subordinated Notes.

[email protected]™ Facilitates Outpatient Management of Kidney Transplants During COVID-19

[email protected]™ Facilitates Outpatient Management of Kidney Transplants During COVID-19TruGraf® and [email protected] reduce risks of surveillance biopsies during COVID-19 MANSFIELD, Mass., May 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the launch in April 2020 of [email protected] in response to the COVID-19 pandemic began impacting transplant patient care and the world, Transplant Genomics, Inc. ("TGI"), announce today the successful growth of TruGraf® driven by adoption of [email protected] TruGraf, the only blood test approved by CMS for surveillance to rule out "silent" subclinical acute rejection (subAR) in kidney transplant recipients with stable graft function, has been recognized as crucial to reducing risk in outpatient management after a kidney transplant during COVID-19 in a recent published article from Yale University. During the COVID-19 pandemic, typical protocols for management of kidney transplant recipients have been difficult to maintain as immunocompromised patients have been urged to stay at home and avoid visiting clinics for routine blood draws or surveillance biopsies. At the same time, clinicians understand that lack of adequate surveillance poses an even greater risk to their patients' health. Published data informs us that while ~25% of patients undergoing a surveillance biopsy will show signs of rejection roughly three times as many, i.e. ~75%, will have a healthy kidney, which means that with the benefit of hindsight, the invasive tissue biopsy was ultimately unnecessary. With the presence of COVID-19, these risks are further inflated, creating significant unnecessary risks for otherwise healthy patients, making them the highest risk-benefit category of transplant recipients. For these patients with stable graft function, TruGraf, a peripheral blood gene expression test, provides a liquid biopsy alternative that can reliably rule out whether there is "silent" subclinical acute rejection. [email protected] enables the necessary blood samples to be collected at home, enabling patients to avoid taking on the added risk of a clinic visit, and minimizing the patient load at hospitals where resources are devoted to COVID-19 care. In one recent published article from Yale School of Medicine, Drs. Shana E. Gleeson, Richard N. Formica, and Ethan P. Marin highlighted this problem accurately, reminding physicians and patients alike the critical benefit and differences in context-of-use between TruGraf and donor-derived cell-free DNA (dd-cfDNA) that "Performance of for-cause biopsies presents another exposure risk, and during this pandemic, the risk-benefit ratio must now incorporate potential exposure to SARS-CoV-2 in the health care facility. As an alternative, practitioners may consider using noninvasive measures of transplant rejection, such as donor-derived cell-free DNA (which may be used in place of for-cause biopsy) or peripheral blood gene expression tests (which may substitute for protocol biopsies)." [email protected] is an in-home blood draw service to aid in specimen collection for routine labs and speciality labs directly from a patient's home. Through our partners at Viracor, clinicians can order and customize remote sample collection to test for a number of infectious diseases, including COVID-19. As part of Eurofins, TGI is actively working to further improve the convenience and quality of service offered to transplant patients, with more announcements expected soon. For information on ordering tests and arranging remote sample collection, physicians may contact TGI about TruGraf tests by calling 1-844-TruGraf. Ordering and general information is also available on our websites at www.trugraf.com. About Transplant Genomics, Inc. Transplant Genomics, Inc.

Superior Energy Services Announces First Quarter 2020 Results HOUSTON, May 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Superior Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: SPN) (the "Company") today announced a net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2020 of $32.3 million, or $2.18 per share, on revenue of $321.5 million. This compares to a net loss from continuing operations of $6.2 million, or $0.42 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2019, on revenue of $336.1 million and a net loss from continuing operations of $32.6 million, or $2.10 per share, for the first quarter of 2019, on revenue of $365.3 million.

The resulting adjusted net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2020 was $11.7 million, or $0.78 per share. David Dunlap, President and CEO, commented, "Although our first quarter results don't reflect an extensive impact from the COVID-19 pandemic, it's clear that the world changed suddenly as the global spread of this illness accelerated toward the end of the quarter. At Superior Energy, our time and effort increasingly shifted towards ensuring the well-being of our employees and customers as the uncertainty created by the spread of COVID-19 grew. "A significant consequence of the global pandemic was the precipitous decline in both oil demand and price. In turn, our customers have rapidly and dramatically reduced their spending, causing us to take significant steps to respond to a much smaller market. To date, we have: Implemented actions to reduce our payroll costs by an estimated annual net amount of approximately $115 million through a combination of salary reductions, reductions in force and furloughs;Reduced 2020 capital expenditures to no more than $50 million for the full year; andLeveraged governmental relief efforts to defer payroll and other tax payments, including an anticipated tax refund of approximately $30 million "We will continue to appropriately scale the cost structure of the Company as we experience changes in customer spending and activity. "With the secular change to the global oil and gas market beginning in earnest in 2015, our organization embarked on a rigorous evaluation of options to enhance stakeholder value. As a result of our efforts, we have determined the best way to maximize stakeholder value is to separate the Company into two publicly traded companies - one focused on the consolidation of the U.S. onshore completion, production and water solutions market and the other centered around our leading global franchises. This separation better aligns future growth strategies, cost-structures and capital deployment with each entities' commercial, geographical and product offerings. "In December 2019, the Company entered into an agreement with Forbes Energy Services ("Forbes") to combine its North America services business lines with Forbes into a separate company. To date, significant progress has been made in finalizing the combination; however, the COVID-19 pandemic and decline in oil and gas prices have created significant disruption to the capital markets and both companies' operations. This disruption has rendered the combination of our North America business lines with Forbes and our related note exchange offer impractical to complete on the terms originally contemplated, and we and Forbes intend to terminate the merger agreement. While this specific transaction will not come to pass, the strategic rationale for the separation of the Company's business lines remains clear, and we will continue to actively pursue strategies to effectuate it."
