Daybreak Oil and Gas, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DBRM) (“Daybreak” or the “Company”), a Washington corporation, announced that it has received a commitment for a $3,500,000 secured loan (the “Loan”).  The term of the Loan will be for three years with an interest rate of 6% per annum.  Also, in accordance with the terms of the commitment, the Company will make monthly payments of interest on the proposed Loan, with the entire principal balance due at the end of the term.  The Loan will be secured by the Company’s leases at its East Slopes Project located in Kern County, California.  The Company will also issue 3.5 million restricted shares of its common stock and assign a 5% net profits interest from the Company’s leases at its East Slopes Project to the lender.  Subject to definitive documentation, due diligence and customary closing conditions, the Loan is expected to close on or before June 30, 2011.  Proceeds of the Loan will be used to expand the development of the Company’s East Slopes Project as well as repay the $750,000 principal amount under its existing Secured Promissory Note due September 17, 2011, relating to the Company’s acquisition of additional working interest in its East Slopes Project and for other general corporate purposes.

Future Plans

The Company plans to drill up to nine wells at its East Slopes Project during its 2012 fiscal year, which began on March 1, 2011.  Locations have already been constructed at the Company’s Bull Run Prospect and at the Ball location.  Drilling is expected to begin at Bull Run by mid July 2011, followed by a development well at our Ball Location.  A workover will also be conducted on our Ball #1 well.

James F. Westmoreland, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, “We believe that this is the right type of financing for the Company and its shareholders.  Share dilution has been kept to approximately 7% and the Loan terms will allow the Company to proceed with its plans while not being burdened under a heavy debt load.”
