16:09 EDTEGYGroup 42, Bradley Radoff to replace four members of VAALCO Energy board
Group 42 and Bradley Radoff, together the beneficial owners of approximately 11.1% of the outstanding shares of VAALCO Energy, and the company's largest stockholder, issued the following statement: "We have reviewed VAALCO's claims regarding the legality of our consent solicitation with legal counsel in Delaware and we remain fully confident that our intended consent solicitation is legal and proper under established Delaware law and that the Charter provision on which the Company purports to rely is invalid because it conflicts with Delaware law. As a result, we are proceeding with our consent solicitation to replace four members of the VAALCO Board and reverse the tide of operational, financial and governance missteps that have led to the destruction of significant shareholder value under the oversight of the current Board of Directors. We also view VAALCO's suggestion of a December "Special Meeting" as a transparent tactic to confuse shareholders and delay their voices being heard. If the Board is truly committed to "shareholder democracy" as they claim, then they can simply take all necessary steps to enforce the shareholders' will for Board change should a majority of the shareholders consent to our solicitation. This is the simplest and most genuine way for the Board to comply with their fiduciary duties and show respect for their shareholders' wishes. It is also the view of Group 42 and Bradley Radoff that the public offer from VAALCO to add one director representative of our Group on the Board without any of the incumbents taking responsibility and stepping down is woefully insufficient to effect the real, meaningful transformation that is immediately needed on the Board. We have made every effort over the past four months, including several private communications, to reach a mutually-agreeable resolution but so far the Board has only continued to repeat the same deeply inadequate offer. We do not see this as a good faith attempt to resolve our differences nor do we think shareholders deserve so little input in the boardroom. We are very disappointed that this Board is choosing to resort to unsubstantiated challenges to our consent solicitation and pushes for complicated special meeting procedures instead of simply taking responsibility for the destruction of shareholder value on their watch and willingly replacing some discredited incumbents to make room for fresh ideas in the boardroom and the shareholder democracy they claim to support. With these facts in mind, we urge VAALCO's Board of Directors to comply with their fiduciary duty and immediately set a record date for the consent solicitation in order to resolve this matter as expeditiously as possible for the benefit of all shareholders."

17:25 EDTEGYVAALCO Energy responds to Group 42 and Bradley Radoff comments
VAALCO Energy responded to comments with respect to the company's cash general and administrative expense and CapEx made by VAALCO stockholders Group 42, Inc. and Bradley L. Radoff, who have announced the intention to solicit consents to replace a majority of VAALCO's duly elected independent directors. The company commented: "In an apparent attempt to advance their Board control agenda, the Group 42-BLR Group has today made misleading comments about VAALCO's cash G&A expense and capex for Q3. The Group 42-BLR Group failed to note that G&A expenses have declined year over year" (...) "Consistent with its 2015 cost initiatives, the company has been cutting aggregate future executive and management cash compensation 30% compared with 2013. VAALCO has also reduced corporate staff in Houston by approximately 15%, as well as reduced contract services and other third party costs. The full benefit of these reductions will be realized in 2016. In addition, the Group 42-BLR Group criticized VAALCO's cash G&A expense in Q3 without noting that certain third quarter expenses, including severance costs, will result in significant savings for VAALCO stockholders over time." "We believe that the Group 42-BLR Group has intentionally cherry-picked data to misrepresent the well-documented progress we are making to drive value in a challenging environment for the oil and gas industry." VAALCO's board is reviewing Group 42-BLR Group's solicitation materials.
