Spotlight Companies  |

Viking Energy Group, Inc. (OTCQB: VKIN) is pleased to announce a net comprehensive income for the year ended December 31, 2017 of approximately $17.8 million, coupled with an increase in the value of its oil and gas properties of approximately $36.2 million over the prior year, as outlined in the company’s annual report on form 10-K/A for the 2017 calendar year.

This significant increase in asset value is attributed to the six acquisitions completed by the company from September, 2017 through December 31, 2017, including a bargain purchase gain of approximately $27 million relative to Viking’s strategic acquisition of Petrodome Energy, LLC on December 22, 2017 (https://www.vikingenergygroup.com/news-media/press-releases/detail/59/viking-energy-group-inc-adds-approx-1501-83-mbbl-and) and its acquisition of 40 new oil leases in Kansas on December 29, 2017 (https://www.vikingenergygroup.com/news-media/press-releases/detail/61/viking-completes-significant-acquisition-in-kansas-within).

James A. Doris, Viking’s President & CEO, noted, “Our acquisition strategy in the latter part of 2017 has served us well in terms of not only increasing immediate oil & gas production but also with facilitating future growth as there are enhancement methods we can implement to improve production from existing wells, and the majority of our properties have several in-field drillable locations."
