5/1/2006 Proxy Information

On January 31, 2005, we entered into a purchase agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with 22 accredited investors pursuant to which the investors purchased 7,810,000 shares of common stock and warrants to purchase 14,050,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $1.75 per share for aggregate sales proceeds of $9,762,500. The Nathan A. Low Family Trust dated 4/12/96 and Bear Stearns as Custodian for Nathan A. Low Roth IRA, both of which are controlled by Nathan Low, who was at that time a greater than 10% holder of our common stock, invested in us pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. Sunrise Securities Corporation, an affiliate of Nathan Low, received a commission equal to $976,250 and a warrant to purchase 1,821,000 shares of our common stock for services rendered as the placement agent in the transaction.

On January 31, 2005, we entered into an agreement with the seven accredited investors in our April 2004 private placement pursuant to which we were permitted to repay the $6,000,000 in notes held by such investors without any prepayment penalties in exchange for the exercise price of the warrants to purchase 765,000 shares of common stock issued in the April 2004 private placement being reduced from $4.00 per share to $1.25 per share. $5,000,000 of the notes were repaid in cash and $1,000,000 of the notes were converted into common stock and warrants pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. Nathan Low, who at that time was a greater than 10% holder of Cadence's common stock, and Lisa Low, Nathan Low's wife, as Custodian for Gabriel S. Low UNYGMA were two of the eight accredited investors involved in this transaction. In connection with this transaction, the exercise price of the warrants to purchase 76,500 shares of common stock held by Nathan A. Low, who acted as a finder in the April 2004 private placement, was also reduced to $1.25 per share.

At the time of the merger, Aurora had a lease for office and storage space from South 31, L.L.C. William W. Deneau and Thomas W. Tucker each own one-third of South 31, L.L.C. Rent was paid through December 31, 2005 on a lease extending through March 31, 2007. After we moved our corporate offices in early December 2005, we no longer had a need for the space in the South 31, L.L.C. property. We have since entered into a Settlement Agreement and Mutual Release with South 31, L.L.C. pursuant to which we made a payment to South 31, L.L.C. in the amount of $65,250 and South 31, L.L.C. released us from any further obligation on the lease.

Messrs. Deneau, Tucker and Miller, who are officers and directors of us, are all involved as equity owners in numerous corporations and limited liability companies that are active in the oil and gas business. Existing affiliations involving co-ownership of projects in which our Aurora subsidiary is active, are itemized below.

Messrs. Deneau, Tucker and Miller own equal shares in JetX, LLC, an exploration company that owns a 10% working interest in the Treasure Island project.

Mr. Miller has an ownership interest in Miller Resources, Inc., Miller Resources 1994-1, and Miller Resources 1996-1, which own working interests of 1%, 0.5% and 1% respectively, in the Beyer project. Mr. Miller also has an ownership interest in Energy Ventures, LLC, which owns a .75% working interest in the Black Bean project.

Messrs. Deneau, Tucker and Miller own Jet Exploration, Inc. which owns an approximate 1% working interest in the Beregasi well.

It is probable that on occasion, we will find it necessary or appropriate to deal with other entities in which Messrs. Deneau, Tucker and Miller have an interest.

On September 7, 2004, the Patricia A. Deneau Trust, DTD 10/12/95, borrowed $100,000 from our Aurora subsidiary to purchase shares of Aurora common stock from an Aurora stockholder. This trust is controlled by William W. Deneau. The loan was evidenced by an unsecured demand promissory note bearing interest at the rate of 4.5% per year. The promissory note has been repaid in full. The shares purchased by the trust were subsequently sold by the trust to Ms. King.

In connection with the December 2005 through February 2006 exercise of certain warrants that had previously been issued by Cadence and Aurora in January 31, 2005 transactions, we paid a commission to Sunrise Securities Corporation, an affiliate of Nathan A. Low, who is a greater than 5% holder of our common stock, in the amount of $1,534,697. This entire amount was used by Mr. Low to exercise certain outstanding warrants to purchase 1,469,860 shares of our common stock.
