Organization and Nature of Business

Effective April 2, 2012, Ante5, Inc. changed its corporate name to Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc., and continues to be quoted on the OTCQB under the trading symbol “ANFC”. Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc. (formerly Ante5, Inc.) (the “Company”) became an independent company in April 2010. We became a publicly traded company when our shares began trading on July 1, 2010. Since October 2010, we had been engaged in the business of acquiring oil and gas leases and participating in the drilling of wells in the Bakken and Three Forks trends in North Dakota and Montana.


On June 21, 2016 we closed on a debt restructuring transaction with our secured lenders as described in Note 4 – Debt Restructuring. Following the transaction, our focus is on managing the oil and gas assets in which we will continue to have an indirect minority interest. In addition, we will continue to pursue distressed asset acquisitions in the Bakken and/or Three Forks and other formations that may be acquired with capital from our secured lenders as part of the restructuring terms, existing joint venture partners or other capital providers.
