Passport Energy Ltd. and Amarok Energy Inc. Update on Arrangement Agreement and Private Placement

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Passport Energy Ltd. ("Passport") and Amarok Energy Inc. ("Amarok") (TSX VENTURE: AMR) announce that they have entered into an amended and restated arrangement agreement ("Amended Agreement") dated as of May 14, 2014 that amends and restates the arrangement agreement dated April 25, 2014 among Amarok, 1815766 Alberta Inc. and Passport that was previously announced by Passport and Amarok on April 30, 2014. A copy of the Amended Agreement will be available on SEDAR profiles of each of Amarok and Passport at www.sedar.com. The Amended Agreement provides, among other things, that 32 Degrees Diversified Energy Fund II (Canadian) L.P. and 32 Degrees Diversified Energy Fund II (US) L.P. (together, "32 Degrees") will participate in the previously announced private placement financing by way of a subscription for $13,000,000 of common shares of Passport ("Passport Shares") at $0.18 per Passport Share (the "Share Offering") after the Passport Shares have been consolidated on a six (6) to one (1) basis (the "Consolidation"). Consequently, the subscription receipt private placement financing previously announced has been revised to be an offering of up to a maximum of $10,000,000 of subscription receipts of Passport ("Subscription Receipts") at $0.18 per Subscription Receipt (the "Subscription Receipts Offering") where, subject to certain escrow conditions being met, each Subscription Receipt is exchangeable for one post-Consolidation Passport Share for no additional consideration. No minimum offering of the Subscription Receipts Offering needs to be achieved in order for Passport to close on the Subscription Receipt Offering. Passport has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange in connection with the Share Offering and Subscription Receipts Offering. The Amended Agreement also provides for Amarok's covenant to grant, contingent on the completion of the transactions contemplated in the Amended Agreement and effective after the completion of such transactions, undertakings to 32 Degrees in respect of certain corporate governance matters of Amarok as well as changes to deadline dates for filings, court applications, closing date and mailing date of the joint information circular contemplated in the Amended Agreement. Other than the above, the Amended Agreement does not materially change any of the material terms previously announced and does not affect the date of the Passport shareholder meeting or Amarok shareholder meeting, each of which is still anticipated to be held on June 12, 2014.

Passport and 32 Degrees have entered into subscription agreements dated May 16, 2014 (the "32 Degrees Subscriptions") in respect of the Share Offering. As previously announced, a portion of the subscription price to be paid by 32 Degrees will include the transfer and conveyance of certain lands in the Hardy area of Southeast Saskatchewan. The 32 Degrees Subscriptions are subject to a number of conditions, including, among other things, that the requisite shareholders approvals of both Passport and Amarok set out in the Amended Agreement be obtained.

Trading in the common shares of each of Passport and Amarok has been halted since January 8, 2014 and March 21, 2014 respectively. It is anticipated that the shares of Passport and Amarok will recommence trading on or about May 21, 2014.

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged.

Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
