Apache Extends Program For Odd-Lot Shareholders

HOUSTON, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Apache Corporation (NYSE: APA) today announced that it has extended its voluntary purchase/sale program for odd-lot shareholders through December 13, 1996. The program enables Apache shareholders owning fewer than 100 shares of the company's common stock as of October 18, 1996, either to purchase enough additional stock to reach 100 shares or to sell their holdings completely.

The program is being conducted exclusively through the mail. Participants will pay a processing fee of 75 cents for each share purchased or sold. Shares submitted for sale will first be matched to purchase requests; unmatched shares will be bought by Apache and added to its shares held in treasury. If more shares are purchased by odd-lot shareholders than sold, the unmatched purchases will be covered by shares bought in the open market by Apache's agent. The closing price of Apache stock as reported in the November 21 edition of The Wall Street Journal was $37 per share.

Program material relative to this extension is being mailed today by Shareholder Communications Corporation, the program manager.

Apache Corporation is a large gas and oil independent with operations in North America and abroad. Its shares are traded on the New York and Chicago stock exchanges.
