BVI-domiciled Newco Group acquired by the U.S. oil and gas corporation

The Nevada-incorporated JMG Exploration, Inc. has announced the acquisition of Newco Group, Ltd. – a holding company registered in the British Virgin Islands. This BVI company, in its turn, acquires the majority equity interest in Iris Computers Ltd., one of the leading IT product distributors in India.

JMG, which specializes in exploration of oil and natural gas in the United States and Canada,  is going to sign the definitive share exchange agreement with Newco and its shareholders within the next some days. The end of the share exchange is contingent upon receiving the approval of JMG shareholders. However, no assurance can be given that the share exchange between JMG and BVI-based Newco is completed.

The Board of Directors of JMG has approved providing a $3.0 million loan to Newco for the purpose of obtaining a majority equity interest in Iris Computers. The loan to Newco is expected to be made during the next 10 days. If the acquisition of the BVI company by JMG is not completed by the end of 2007, Newco is obligated to repay the loan by that date.
