Petrocapita Provides Update to Stakeholders

CALGARY, Alberta, June 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Petrocapita Income Trust (CSE:PCE.UN) (“Petrocapita” or the “Trust”) provides the following update:

Petrocapita clarifies that Mr. Steve Elliot will not be the main point of contact for Investor Relations going forwards.  Mr. Elliot’s past efforts are very much greatly appreciated by Petrocapita as he worked endlessly in his role. However, Petrocapita continues its efforts to reduce overhead wherever possible and Mr. Gregory Marr will be one of the point of contacts for Investor Relations on all press releases going forward.

Petrocapita previously announced the temporary suspension of the 9% preferred trust units (“Preferred Units”) cash interest payment. This was a temporary halt and was expected to be in place for no more than four (4) months. With the price of Western Canadian Select stabilizing (on a differential basis) that the 9% Preferred Units cash interest payments are targeted to be resumed within two months of this release.

Petrocapita previously announced that it had entered into a non-binding letter of intent with respect to its mid-stream transaction. The transaction is still non-binding but has progressed to the point that a proposed date for it to become binding is June 30/2018. The magnitude of this transaction is not substantial with respect to Petrocapita’s mid-stream assets, but it is fully in line with Petrocapita efforts to capitalize on and realize value for its mid-stream assets and is part of the ongoing strategy.

The Trust has filed its Unaudited Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements and Management’s  Discussion and Analysis for the three (3) months ended March 31, 2018 and March 31, 2017 have been filed with the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”) and on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (“SEDAR”) and may be accessed at www.sedar.com.
