Bayshore Petroleum Corp Announces Election of Director, Approval of Private Placement and Clarification on Prior Business Activities

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

CALGARY, Alberta, Aug. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bayshore Petroleum Corp. (“Bayshore” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that Ellen Yu was elected to the Board of Directors of Bayshore by shareholders at the Annual General and Special Meeting of the shareholders of the Corporation held on August 7, 2018 (the “AGM”).  Ellen Yu is an experienced professional accountant resident in Hong Kong, Special Administrative District, China.  She has worked as a controller for a large international conglomerate in Hong Kong and is currently working part-time as a professional accountant consultant, providing advice and consulting services to companies in Hong Kong and overseas.  Ms Yu is a Canadian citizen and has strong family and business connections in Toronto.

Bayshore is also pleased to announce that the private placement described in its press release dated June 29, 2018, being the sale of 50 million common shares at $0.015 per share for gross proceeds of $750,000 (less any commissions or finders fees), was approved by shareholders at the AGM.  The private placement is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.

Additionally, Bayshore wishes to clarify the status of certain business activities previously announced by it.

On February 11, 2014, Bayshore announced it had entered into a letter of intent with International Ultrasonic Technologies Inc. (“IUT”), related to the use of IUT’s proprietary technology.  On July 28, 2014, the Corporation entered into an exclusive license agreement with IUT for a term of 20 years (the “License Agreement”).  Bayshore was not able to meet its payment obligations under the License Agreement, and the License Agreement was cancelled by mutual agreement effective December 31, 2016.

On May 5, 2014, Bayshore announced that it had entered into a letter of intent (the “LOI”) with International Enhanced Petroleum Services (“EPS”), a United Arab Emirates company operating in Iraq.  The LOI contemplated the construction of a pilot heavy oil upgrading facility utilizing the cold catalytic cracking upgrading technology process (“CCC”) championed by Bayshore.  The LOI contemplated the execution of a formal agreement once terms and conditions were finalized.  Discussions between Bayshore and EPS terminated in early 2015 without the conclusion of a formal agreement, and Bayshore does not anticipate a renewal of those discussions.

On May 2, 2017, Bayshore announced a non-brokered private placement financing consisting of up to 24 million common shares priced at $0.05 per share for gross proceeds to Bayshore of $1.2 million.  The anticipated financing was not completed, and the parties who expressed interest in investing in Bayshore are no longer in discussions with Bayshore and are not expected to make an investment in Bayshore.  The financing was expected to enable Bayshore to initiate a partial upgrading project in Western Canada, and, as a result of the non-completion of the financing, no projects were commenced in 2017. 

On May 31, 2017, Bayshore announced its engagement in a test program with Imaginea Energy Corp. (“Imaginea”) to validate the CCC.  Imaginea initiated the contemplated assessment process, but the process was not completed.  No test results were obtained.  Imaginea has since suffered the loss of its CEO Suzanne West, and Bayshore does not have an expectation that the assessment process will be continued.
