Tombstone Exploration Welcomes New Member to Board
Tombstone Exploration announced that Mr. Laird Cagan has been appointed to the TMBXF Board of Directors.
Mr. Cagan is Managing Director and co-founder of Cagan McAfee Capital Partners, LLC, ("CMCP"), a private investment firm and merchant bank, as well as its predecessor firm, Cagan Capital, LLC. In the '90's, Cagan Capital invested in and helped build 15 high tech companies with over $500 million of equity capital invested in those companies. Since 2000, CMCP has founded, funded and taken public 10 companies in a variety of industries including energy, alternative energy, healthcare, information technologies and environmental. CMCP portfolio companies have raised over $600 million of equity capital and over $2 billion of capital has been invested in those companies or their projects.
Mr. Cagan was the Founder/Chairman of Evolution Petroleum Corporation (EPM), which develops mature oil & gas fields with advanced technologies, and is a former founding director of AE BioFuels (AEBF) and Pacific Asia Petroleum (PAP). He is also a Registered Representative of Colorado Financial Services Corporation (Member FINRA/SIPC) and holds Series 7, 63 and 24 licenses. CMCP is not affiliated with CFSC.
Mr. Cagan previously worked for two of the largest investment banks in the world, Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Drexel Burnham Lambert. In all, he was involved in over 30 transactions valued at more than $15 billion. Mr. Cagan attended M.I.T. and received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in engineering and his MBA from Stanford University. He is also a graduate of the UCLA Director's Training Program.
Cagan stated, "Tombstone controls the mineral resources under a large acreage in an historically prolific mining area in Southern Arizona. Existing testing results show significant promise for a potentially large mineral resource. It is an exciting opportunity for me to be involved at this point in the development of this project. I see parallels with several of the companies I co-founded which developed into AMEX-listed companies. These companies had energy resources with significant initial potential and after accessing development capital, entered into development deals with a large strategic partner to build out the resource."
Alan Brown, President of TMBXF, stated, "We are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Laird to our Board of Directors. His past experience will be an asset to our company and we look forward to working with him. Laird has had considerable success helping and advising previous firms that he was associated with in raising expansion capital. This experience will be of great value to TMBXF, as we move to the next stage."
