HOUSTON, Dec. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Epsilon Energy Ltd. (“Epsilon” or the “Company”) (TSX:EPS) announced today that effective following the close of trading on December 19, 2018, it has completed a consolidation of its share capital on the basis of one (1) new common share for every existing two (2) common shares (the “Consolidation”).  Where the exchange results in a fractional share, the number of common shares will be rounded to the nearest whole common share.  The Board of Directors has unanimously approved the Consolidation and believes that the Consolidation should allow the Company to meet the minimum NASDAQ listing standards in the United States, enhance the marketability of the common share as an investment and facilitate additional financings to fund operations in the future.  Shareholder approval of the Consolidation was obtained at the Company’s special shareholders meeting held on December 19, 2018, together with the approval of the amendment to the bylaws of Epsilon to decrease the amount of required resident Canadian directors. A new CUSIP of 294375209 replaces the old CUSIP of 294375100, to distinguish between the pre and post consolidated shares.  The Corporation’s name and trading symbol will remain unchanged.  

The Company anticipates that the common shares will trade on a post-Consolidation basis on the Toronto Stock Exchange within 2 - 3 business days. Following the Consolidation, there are expected to be approximately 27,393,535 common shares issued and outstanding.
