CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Oct. 29, 2015) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Rosa Capital Inc. ("Rosa") (TSX VENTURE:RSA.P) and Raimount Energy Inc. ("Raimount") (TSX VENTURE:RMT) are pleased to jointly announce that they have entered into a letter of intent dated October 9, 2015 with respect to a proposed business combination of Rosa and Raimount (the "Proposed Transaction"). If completed, the Proposed Transaction will constitute Rosa's Qualifying Transaction as set forth in Policy 2.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").

The Proposed Transaction

It is anticipated that the Proposed Transaction will be structured by way of a three cornered amalgamation, but may be conducted under another form of business combination. As part of the Proposed Transaction, Rosa and Raimount intend to combine their respective businesses and continue under the name of "Raimount Energy Inc." (the "Resulting Issuer") or such other name acceptable to Rosa, Raimount and the Exchange. 

Pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, Raimount (or another entity owned or controlled by Raimount) shall acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares in the capital of Rosa (the "Rosa Shares") and all of the other outstanding securities convertible into Rosa Shares for aggregate consideration of $2,396,250, to be paid by the issuance of shares of the Resulting Issuer with a deemed value per share of $2.25 (the "Share Consideration"). The Share Consideration will be issued upon closing of the Proposed Transaction to the shareholders of Rosa on the basis of 0.10 of a share of the Resulting Issuer for each Rosa Share held. 

Mr. Gregory Peterson, of Alberta, a director of Rosa, owns less than 1% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Raimount.

Mr. Gregory A. Vavra, of Alberta, the President, Chief Executive Officer and a director of Raimount, beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, approximately 15.76% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Raimount. Mr. Steve Vavra, Alberta, a director of Raimount, beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, approximately 16.49% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Raimount and Kevin K. Tetreau of Alberta, a director of Raimount, beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, approximately 10.92% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Raimount.  

The Proposed Transaction will be considered an arm's length transaction as none of Rosa, Raimount or their respective associates or affiliates are controlled by the same parties.
