InterOil Decides Against OTG Acquisition

On July 23 InterOil entered a letter of intent to acquire OTG Energy and has during the last two months performed a due diligence of the company. The result of the due diligence process did not satisfy InterOil's technical and economical requirements. The company therefore has decided not to conclude this acquisition. Should the terms of the acquisition change, InterOil would reconsider its position.
