NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2014

NEW YORK, Jan.7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Drill Capital LLC, an alternative asset
manager focused on investments in the North American energy sector, announced
today the official launch of Drill Research, a new research platform that
informs Drill Capital's private and public investments in the sector. As part
of the launch, Drill Research has released a model portfolio for 2014 with its
top pick, Antero Resources Corp. A copy of the report and an accompanying
slide presentation is available at www.drillcap.com/drill-research.html.

As the analytical arm of Drill Capital, which makes all investment decisions,
Drill Research will rely on a bottom-up approach to evaluating the North
American energy sector, primarily focusing on companies that are benefitting
from the shale oil boom. Reports will analyze long-term market fundamentals
while closely monitoring short-term developments in the energy space. Drill
Research will also provide regular updates to its company-specific research,
including detailed insights into particular stocks, commodity price movements,
industry trends, and region-specific developments.

"In order to provide the best risk-adjusted returns for our clients, it's
necessary that we establish a separate arm that can focus solely on collecting
the best primary source information available," said Farid Guindo, Founder and
Managing Partner of Drill Capital. "As part of our ongoing investment process,
we constantly evaluate data points across North America in order to pinpoint
emerging energy hubs at the appropriate stages of development, anticipate
production spikes, and determine whether these basins make for sustained
long-term investments."

This announcement comes two months after Drill Capital closed on a transaction
to construct a new three-story hotel located in the Utica Shale formation of
eastern Ohio, set to open in the second quarter of 2014. The firm is in the
process of executing on several additional plays in the real estate
space—which, according to Drill Research, currently provides one of the best
risk-adjusted return opportunities in the sector.
