Hyperdynamics Strategy
 
Since Hyperdynamics' new management team began accelerating exploration activities on the Guinea concession in mid-2009, our strategy has been to maximize shareholder value by retaining as large a working interest ownership position in the concession as possible, for as long as possible.

To fund its ongoing exploration activities during this period, Hyperdynamics successfully raised more than $220 million of equity from institutional investors, and nearly a quarter of its outstanding common shares are held by institutions.

In early 2010, Hyperdynamics sold a 23% stake in the Guinea project to Dana Petroleum for a total of $19.6 million, which allowed the Company to retain a 77% working interest in and operatorship of the project as it spudded the first exploration well in late 2011, the Sabu-1.

The Sabu-1 exploration well encountered oil shows while drilling the targeted Upper Cretaceous section, and our well-log interpretations indicated the presence of residual oil in non-commercial quantities. Following the drilling of the Sabu-1 well, Hyperdynamics was able to attract a world class independent explorer, Tullow Oil, to join as partner and operator of future exploration activities.

Following the sale to Tullow, Hyperdynamics still retains a 37% working interest in the Guinea concession.
