AUSTIN, TX–(Marketwire – Apr 29, 2011) – United States Oil and Gas Corp (OTCQB: USOG) (PINKSHEETS: USOG), announced that it has achieved progress in reducing its debt and strengthening its balance sheet. The Company, which recently filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 and its financial results for the fiscal year and quarter ended December 31, 2010, showed improvement in several key performance measures:

The most significant factor in the improvement was the restructuring of $3.75 million in debt owed to Jeff Turnbull. This note was amended to come due on December 31, 2012 earning 2% interest in calendar year 2011 and 10% interest for calendar year 2012. In addition, the April 9, 2011 maturity date on a $750,000 note due to an accredited investor was extended to December 31, 2011.

CEO Alex Tawse commented, “Debt reduction remains one of our top priorities and we have made significant headway. While the conversion of debt to equity impacts our current liabilities, shares outstanding and earnings per share, it continues to be an effective method of meeting our obligations and improving the overall financial health of the Company. Our goal is to be debt free by the end of 2012.”

Penny Stocks are stocks traded for under $2 and they represent the small cap companies. They trade on the OTCBB so you will not find them on the major stock exchanges. They are very cheap stocks and normally come for businesses needing capital. They are a very risky investment as the business can go under and leave you with a stock worth nothing. However that being said penny stock trading can be a great money maker, and there are numerous traders who make 6 figures and more from them each year.

The best reasons to trade in penny stocks are the fact that they do not require a large initial investment, meaning that they are an affordable investment for many. Penny stocks are cheap. For example if you were to buy 1000 shares in a company with shares at 10 cents, you would only require an investment of $100, whereas if the shares cost $5 you would require an investment of $5000. Penny stocks also have the potential of huge gains, and have been known to rise as much as 1000% daily. Therefore your $100 investment can be worth $1000. This is very unlikely to happen to other stocks from large cap businesses.
