(“HighPeak” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: HPK) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a quarterly dividend of $0.025 per share of common stock outstanding. The Board of Directors also approved a special dividend of $0.075 per share of common stock outstanding.

The Company currently has approximately 92.7 million shares of common stock outstanding.
Jack Hightower, HighPeak’s Chairman and CEO, said, “The Board elected to initiate a quarterly dividend program after considering the success of the Company’s development drilling program. The Company is well capitalized and expects its drilling program to be cash flow positive as early as next year assuming well performance continues to meet our expectations and commodity prices remain relatively constant. If the Company continues its current course, we believe we could maintain a conservative balance sheet, while increasing production and cash flow providing the potential to increase the dividend in the future beyond the $0.025 per share.”
