WAYNE, Pa., March 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan & Maniskas, LLP announces that
it is investigating potential claims against Hyperdynamics Corporation
("Hyperdynamics" or the "Company") (NYSE: HDY) on behalf of investors of
Hyperdynamics who purchased shares of the Company between November 8, 2012 and

The investigation concerns whether Hyperdynamics and certain of its officers
and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934. On September 30, 2013, the Company announced that it
received a subpoena from the Department of Justice ("DOJ") requesting that the
company produce documents relating to its business in Guinea. In 2006, a
Production Sharing Contract was signed by the Company and the government of
Guinea granting rights to an oil and gas concession offshore Guinea. The
Company stated that the DOJ is investigating whether the Company's activities
in obtaining and retaining the concession rights and its relationships with
charitable organizations potentially violate the U.S. Foreign Corrupt
Practices Act or U.S. anti-money laundering statutes.

On March 12, 2014, the Company announced that Tullow Oil Plc, a company that
was partnering with Hyperdynamics, had suspended work at a Guinea project as a
result of the DOJ investigation. On this news, the Company's stock fell 58%.
