CORRE Announces Settlement With HERA AG on Lease Agreement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 18, 2016) - Canadian Oil Recovery and Remediation Enterprises Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CVR) ("CORRE" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has concluded a settlement with HERA AG Ambiental S.L. of Spain ("HERA") over its equipment lease agreement whereby CORRE leased its ARES I equipment to HERA. The final settlement agreement provides for a payment by HERA to CORRE of USD 431,505 (CAD 557,280) which includes costs and all outstanding lease payments owing by HERA to CORRE. The full settlement amount will be paid by HERA no later than May 23, 2016 according to the terms of the settlement agreement.

As part of the settlement, the ARES I equipment will be surrendered by HERA and returned to CORRE's primary equipment storage facility with CANAR Trading and Contracting, CORRE's exclusive agent in Kuwait, no later than July 22, 2016. Otherwise, per diem penalties will apply for each day of equipment delivery delay.

As a result of the uncertainty of collection of the lease payments at the time of completion of CORRE's annual audited financial statements, CORRE's auditors made the decision to impair the Company's ARES I equipment to nil ($0) value on its financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2015. In view of the above described financial settlement which includes the return of ARES I Equipment to CORRE, management is presently working to reverse the equipment impairment in order to accurately reflect the proper book value of the ARES I equipment in its forthcoming financial statements.
