Bluegrass Defaults, Loses Bullseye Project and Eastern Kentucky Leases
Blugrass Energy has materially defaulted on the Blugrass Project and lost all future rights to participate in the Bullseye Project as a result of its failure to perform. The transaction is now null and void. The default occurred as a result of Blugrass failing to make its share of the annual lease renewal payments in the amount of $48,610 due on or before July 1, 2009 as well as failing to provide the financing as set forth in the Agreement that was to have been in place by May 15, 2009.
Blugrass further announced that as a separate matter it has materially defaulted on its Eastern Kentucky lease purchase for failure to maintain the leases in good standing as well as failing to make the payments on the leases as required. The transaction with Blugrass is now null and void as a result. An extension of time had been previously granted to Blugrass from the original due date of May 22, 2009 till July 15, 2009 to make the final payments. Of the original $759,000 purchase price $674,000 still remained to be paid. Blugrass will have no further claims or rights to the leases as a result of the default.
