Gulfport Energy Corporation (Nasdaq: GPOR) ("Gulfport") today announced that it proposes to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $300 million aggregate principal amount of its senior notes due 2023 (the "Notes") to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to certain non-U.S. persons in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes will be issued under a new indenture and will rank equally with Gulfport's previously issued senior notes and other senior indebtedness. Gulfport expects to use the net proceeds of the Notes offering, together with the net proceeds from its concurrent equity offering, (i) to fund its previously announced pending acquisition of Paloma Partners III, LLC, (ii) to repay the current outstanding borrowings under its secured revolving credit facility and (iii) for general corporate purposes, including the funding of a portion of its 2015 capital development plans.

The Notes will be general unsecured senior obligations of Gulfport, will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by certain of Gulfport's subsidiaries and will pay interest semi-annually.

The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.

This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
