AUSTIN, Texas, June 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Victory Oilfield Tech (OTCQB:VYEY) ("Victory" or the “Company”) today announced that it is presently raising up to $7 million of new capital to help accelerate the Company’s expansion into the oilfield energy-tech industry through a Private Placement. The net proceeds from the offering are expected to be primarily utilized for targeted oilfield service company acquisitions, accelerate product acceptance and buildout of key infrastructure, including expansion of early-stage product manufacturing and distribution, order fulfillment, customer support, key executive team additions, payment of previously accrued liabilities and the launch of a branding effort to expand awareness of Victory’s revolutionary amorphous alloy coatings products.
Kenny Hill, Victory’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased to begin our funding initiative as it is the final step in our plans to become a well-capitalized, technology-enabled, oilfield services technology business. We have a clearly defined strategy and detailed plans for prudently investing the anticipated net proceeds from the offering into the growth of the business, including the potential acquisition of an established oilfield services company.
“To fully leverage the significant near and long-term growth opportunities provided by our exclusive product offering, we have assembled a proven management team with a strong track record of success at both small and large organizations. The combination of friction and torque reduction combined with enhanced wear and corrosion resistance extend the life of the industries’ most expensive equipment and enhances well outcomes and economics. Likewise, better asset-tracking, utilization and data collection from the deployment of our innovative RFID enclosure will drive clear value for our customer. We anticipate new innovative products will come to market as we continue to collaborate with drillers to solve their other down-hole needs.”

About Victory Oilfield Tech
Victory Oilfield Tech (OTCQB:VYEY), is a publicly held oilfield energy-tech products company focused on improving well performance and extending the lifespan of the industry’s most sophisticated and expensive equipment. America’s resurgence in oil and gas production is partially driven by new innovative technologies and processes. The Company exclusively licenses intellectual property related to amorphous metal alloys for use in the global oilfield services industry. Victory’s patented products utilize amorphous coatings designed to cost effectively reduce drill-string torque, friction, wear and corrosion, while not impacting the integrity of the base metal. Current products include solutions for drill-pipe, production tubing, and RFID enclosures, but will be expanded to meet the additional needs of exploration and production customers. Amorphous alloys are mechanically stronger, harder and more corrosion resistant than typical crystalline structure alloys found in the market today. This combination of characteristics creates opportunities for drillers to dramatically improve lateral drilling lengths, well completion time and total well costs.

Companies seeking private placement investments like ours tend to be in earlier stages of development and have not yet been fully tested in the public marketplace.
