Cubic Energy Raises $2 Million through Private Placement
Cubic Energy has closed on $2 Million through an equity transaction; whereby, the Company issued 2,500,000 common shares at a price of $0.80/share, and issued warrants, with a five year expiration period, for the purchase of 1,000,000 Company common shares, at an exercise price of $1.00/share.
Proceeds from this initial private placement will be used to fund the Company's share of the drilling and completion costs for two Wells, the Company's fourth and fifth Cotton Valley tests. The drilling location for the S.E. Johnson 20 #1 is almost complete and drilling is expected to commence later this month.

("Tauren") as discussed in the Company's press release dated December 8, 2005 (the "Transaction"), (ii) approval of the Transaction by the Cubic Board of Directors, and a Special Committee formed by the disinterested Directors and/or advisors retained by such Special Committee, (iii) approval of the Transaction by Tauren, a company wholly-owned by Calvin Wallen III, (iv) completion of due diligence, (v) a definitive agreement with investors for such financing and (vi) requisite Cubic shareholder approval to increase the number of authorized common shares.
Proceeds from the $10-$12 Million financing will be used to fund the aforementioned Transaction, Cubic's share of at least four additional wells to be drilled on Cubic's Bethany Longstreet acreage during 2006, and for working capital.
