PLANO, Texas, Jan. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE:DNR) ("Denbury" or
the "Company") today announced that it has commenced cash tender offers to purchase any and all of
the outstanding:

* 9.75% senior subordinated notes due March 2016 of the Company (the "9 ¾% Notes"), and
* 9.5% senior subordinated notes due May 2016 of the Company, as successor to Encore Acquisition
Company (the "9 ½% Notes" and collectively with the 9 ¾% Notes, the "Notes"),

on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Consent
Solicitation Statement, dated the date hereof (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to
time, the "Statement"), and in the related Letter of Transmittal and Consent (as the same may be
amended or supplemented from time to time, the "Letter of Transmittal"). The tender offers are
referred to herein collectively as the "Offers."  The Statement and Letter of Transmittal are
referred to herein collectively as the "Offer Documents."

As of January 22, 2013, approximately $426.4 million of 9 ¾% Notes and approximately $224.9
million of 9 ½% Notes were outstanding.

In conjunction with the Offers, and on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the
Offer Documents, the Company is soliciting, with respect to each series of Notes (collectively,
the "Consent Solicitations"), consents ("Consents") of holders of those Notes to, among other
things, eliminate most of the restrictive covenants and certain events of default contained in the
applicable indenture.

The consent payment deadline is 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 4, 2013 (such time and
date, as it may be extended, the "Consent Payment Deadline"), and the tender offer will expire at
11:59 p.m., New York City time, on February 19, 2013 (such time and date, as it may be extended,
the "Expiration Time"), in each case unless earlier terminated by the Company.  Notes tendered may
be withdrawn and the related Consents revoked at any time at or before the Consent Payment
Deadline but not thereafter.

Tenders of Notes will be accepted only in principal amounts of $1,000 or integral multiples
thereof.  The total consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of 9 ¾% Notes purchased
pursuant to the Offers will be $1,054.25.  The total consideration for each $1,000 principal
amount of 9 ½% Notes purchased pursuant to the Offers will be $1,068.69.  The total consideration
for each series of Notes includes a payment of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of those Notes
payable only in respect of Notes tendered with Consents at or before the Consent Payment Deadline.
Holders validly tendering Notes after the Consent Payment Deadline but at or before the Expiration
Time will be eligible to receive only the tender offer consideration of (i) $1,024.25 per $1,000
principal amount of 9 ¾% Notes and (ii) $1,038.69 per $1,000 principal amount of 9 ½% Notes.  In
addition, holders whose Notes are purchased in the tender offer will receive accrued and unpaid
interest in respect of their purchased Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not
including, the applicable payment date for the Notes.

The Company's obligation to accept for purchase and to pay for Notes validly tendered and not
withdrawn pursuant to the Offers is subject to the satisfaction or waiver, in the Company's
discretion, of certain conditions, which are more fully described in the Statement, including,
among others, the Company's receipt of consent of the holders of at least a majority in principal
amount of the outstanding Notes of each series to the proposed amendments and the Company's
receipt of aggregate proceeds (before initial purchasers' discounts, fees and other offer
expenses) of at least $1.0 billion from an offering of new senior subordinated notes, on terms
satisfactory to the Company.  The complete terms and conditions of the Offers and the Consent
Solicitations are set forth in the Offer Documents, which are being sent to holders of Notes.
Holders of Notes are urged to read the Offer Documents carefully.
