Ithaca Energy Inc. (TSX: IAE) (LSE: IAE) ("Ithaca" or the "Company") announces the listing of an additional 1,600,000 common shares in the Company.

Following the recent exercise of share options by a former Ithaca employee, the Company has issued and allotted a total of 1,600,000 common shares ("New Common Shares") and has applied for these New Common Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. Admission of the New Common Shares is expected to occur on 10 March 2014. Each New Common Share will rank pari passu with the existing common shares.

Following the issue and allotment of the New Common Shares, the Company will have a total of 328,148,621 common shares in issue with one voting right per common share. There are no common shares held in treasury. The total number of voting shares in the Company is therefore 328,148,621. This figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the UK Financial Services Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

The total number of common shares under option is now 17,243,566, representing approximately 5.0% of the total shares outstanding and under option.
