(“American Oil & Gas” or the “Company”) (AMEX:AEZ) related to the Company’s agreement to be acquired by Hess Corporation (“Hess”) in a proposed stock-for-stock transaction.

Under the terms of the merger agreement entered into by the parties, Hess has agreed to issue 0.1373 shares of its common stock in exchange for each outstanding share of American Oil & Gas common stock.
