Dallas, Texas (August 1, 2011) – StockGuru shines its Spotlight on Pegasi Energy Resources Corp. (OTCBB: PGSI) (the “Company”), an East Texas based oil and gas exploration and production company headquartered in Tyler, Texas. The Company closed on Friday, July 29, 2011, at $0.42 with a market capitalization of $14.14 million, upon the announcement of the closing of its private placement to non-U.S. investors of $5,388,900 in gross proceeds.
Investors purchased units priced at $1.00. Each unit consisted of two shares of the Company’s common stock and a warrant to purchase one share of the Company’s common stock, exercisable for three years at a price of $0.60 per share.
Beaufort International Associates Limited, a UK registered broker-dealer, acted as the placement agent for this offering. The proceeds from the offering will be used to drill horizontal oil wells, to acquire additional oil and gas leases and to cover general operating costs for the Company’s Cornerstone Project. Affiliates of the Company, who hold all the Company’s senior debt, have agreed to a four year stand still on the debt as a condition of the private placement.
The area of the Cornerstone Project has produced over 400 million barrels of oil and more than 2.3 trillion cubic feet of gas to date. Pegasi will now apply proven horizontal drilling and multistage frac technology for the first time in the Cornerstone Project area, which it believes will result in substantial additional oil and gas reserves from relatively untapped shale formations.
Mr. Michael Neufeld, President and CEO of Pegasi said; “We are pleased with the success of this offering. These funds will help us to fulfill the Company’s drilling plans and realize the potential of the significant oil resources in the Cornerstone Project Area where we now hold approximately 26,617 gross acres. We believe that our drilling program will enhance the stock value by both adding to our existing reserve base and proving the viability of the significant resources identified by the Company on its Cornerstone acreage.”

Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors
Effective January 1, 2010, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose not only “proved” reserves (i.e., quantities of oil and gas that are estimated to be recoverable with a high degree of confidence), but also “probable” reserves (i.e., quantities of oil and gas that are as likely as not to be recovered) as well as “possible” reserves (i.e., additional quantities of oil and gas that might be recovered, but with a lower probability than probable reserves). As noted above, statements of reserves are only estimates and may not correspond to the ultimate quantities of oil and gas recovered. Any reserve estimates provided in this press release that are not specifically designated as being estimates of proved reserves may include estimated reserves not necessarily calculated in accordance with, or contemplated by, the SEC’s latest reserve reporting guidelines. Investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K available from the Company at 218 N. Broadway, Suite 204, Tyler, Texas 75702 (attn: Investor Relations). You can also obtain this report from the SEC by calling 1-800-SEC-0330 or from the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.
