Infinity Cross Border Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: INXB), a special-purpose acquisition company, and Glori Energy Inc., an energy technology company that deploys its proprietary AERO system to increase oil production from mature oil fields, have completed Glori’s acquisition of producing oil assets in Wood County, Texas, from Petro-Hunt LLC for $40 million. Current net production of approximately 500 barrels of oil equivalent per day from 28 wells

The $40 million purchase price was funded with $24 million in debt facilities, including $2 million in a 6% convertible promissory note issued to Petro-Hunt, which may be converted into common stock of the post-merger entity at $8 per share subsequent to the consummation of the merger and share exchange agreement between Glori and Infinity, and $16 million from Glori's cash on hand.
