United States Oil and Gas Corp Responds to Trading Action
United States Oil and Gas Corp (OTCQB: USOG) issues this release today in response to the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) Order of Suspension of Trading in the securities of USOG and 16 other small issuers as part of a broad regulatory effort focused on microcap stocks. The 10 day Order of Suspension notes that the SEC has questions concerning the adequacy and accuracy of press releases concerning the Company’s operations and stock promoting activity by the Company.

The Company has conferred with SEC regarding its concerns and conducted a thorough review of its press releases, financial statements and other disclosure documents in response to the trading suspension.  Importantly, the Company wishes to note that it is up to date in all of its filings with the SEC and has not paid for or sponsored any promotional activity with respect to its stock, an issue facing other microcap companies, including many involved in the SEC trading suspension.

After a review of the Company’s historical press releases, the Company wishes to note that on May 20, 2011, the Company filed its Quarterly Report for the three month period ended March 31, 2011 on Form 10-Q which included for the first time, restated figures for the period ended March 31, 2010. The Notes to those financial statements detail all the adjustments. The SEC noted that the Company did not issue a press release specifically addressing the restatement. In sum, Total Assets and Liabilities and Stockholders’ Deficit were reduced by $375,000 to $6.6 million. Net loss increased by $292,000 to $639,000.

One source of the restatements was the application of the purchase price for the acquisition of United Oil. Significant adjustments from this were the $764,400 reclassification of purchase price from fixed assets and goodwill to intangible assets.  The second source of restatement was the reclassification of $99,013 of Additional Paid In Capital primarily to Preferred Convertible Shares. Finally, there was a significant restatement of expense due the proper GAAP accounting for several Derivative Instruments the Company has on its balance sheet. These are Convertible Notes Payable that have a variable conversion feature that is dependent on the price of the stock at the time of conversion. This primarily resulted in a derivative liability of $845,921, a loss on the valuation of the derivative at period end of $37,418, discounts to notes payable of $232,801, and amortization expense of $67,366.

The Company believes it has properly complied with the regulations pertaining to the dissemination of information under its control, and will continue to take great care in meeting its regulatory requirements and will fully cooperate with the SEC with respect to this matter.
