HOUSTON, Sept. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Harvest Natural Resources, Inc. (NYSE: HNR) ("Harvest") today announced that it has entered into an equity distribution agreement ("Agreement") with Raymond James & Associates, Inc. ("Raymond James") relating to an "at-the-market" offering of shares of our common stock having an aggregate sales price of up to $75,000,000.

Harvest President & CEO, James A. Edmiston, said "Along with our previously announced Form S-3 shelf registration, this ATM facility will provide Harvest the necessary tools to manage liquidity during this interim period as we await the outcome of the sale of our Venezuelan business. Additionally, Pluspetrol has elected to extend the September 7, 2014 termination date one month under the Share Purchase Agreement, which entitles Harvest to pull down $2.0 million per month from Pluspetrol during such extension."
The shares will be offered under a prospectus supplement, dated September 4, 2014, to the Company's base prospectus effective July 23, 2014, filed as part of its shelf registration statement previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A copy of the prospectus supplement may be obtained from Raymond James & Associates, Inc., 880 Carillon Parkway, St. Petersburg, Florida 33716.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor may there be any sale of Harvest's common stock in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities law of any state or jurisdiction.
