Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - July 10, 2024) - Greenfire Resources Ltd. (NYSE: GFR) (TSX: GFR) ("Greenfire" or the "Company"), a Calgary-based energy company focused on the production and development of thermal energy resources from the Athabasca region of Alberta, Canada, is pleased to announce the redemption of approximately US$61 million of the Company's US$300 million senior secured notes due 2028 (the "2028 Notes"), payable on July 12, 2024, in accordance with the indenture governing the 2028 Notes.

On June 30, 2024, the Company's closing cash and cash equivalents balance was approximately CAD$160 million, including approximately CAD$50 million of additional working capital resulting from the accelerated collection of oil sales for June 2024. Under the indenture governing the 2028 Notes, the Company must direct 75% of Excess Cash Flow ("ECF"), as defined in the indenture governing the 2028 Notes, towards the redemption of a portion of the 2028 Notes at a cash price equal to 105% of the principal every six-months until consolidated indebtedness is reduced to less than US$150 million. The remaining 25% of ECF in the period can be used for shareholder returns, subject to the terms of the indenture governing the 2028 Notes. Once consolidated indebtedness falls below US$150 million, the required redemption in every six-month period is reduced to 25% of ECF, with 75% of ECF becoming available for shareholder returns. The opening balance for the first ECF calculation was CAD$43 million.

The Company plans to issue Q2 2024 operating and financial results on August 14th, 2024.
