GILLETTE, Wyo. -- High Plains Gas, Inc. (OTC: HPGS) signed a term sheet to acquire BGM Buildings, LLC, a construction company serving the energy industry and based in Gillette, WY. The agreement calls for the complete purchase of BGM in exchange for cash and High Plains Gas stock, with final terms to be announced at closing.

Brandon Hargett, Chief Executive Officer of High Plains Gas, Inc., commented, "This acquisition is intended to strengthen the capabilities of HPG Services by enhancing our scope of services projects and building our revenue stream. BGM, in a fairly short time of operation, has generated a strong pipeline of contracts to build structures for use in the energy industry. This is another building block of our newly-established corporate focus on leveraging our current relationships and facilities to significantly expand the revenue base provided by HPG Services. This strategy is enhanced by the BGM acquisition as well as Miller Fabrication, the LOI for which we announced on October 5th. Our Mergers and Acquisitions team expects BGM will add annual revenue of approximately $2 million and Miller Fabrication will add annual revenue of between $12 million and $18 million."
