DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 22, 2008) - Arcland Energy Corporation (OTCBB: ACLY) ("Arcland" or the "Company"), an independent oil and gas company, is pleased to announce that its 1 for 10 reverse stock split became effective on October 14, 2008 upon filing of Articles of Amendment to its Articles of Incorporation with the Utah Department of Commerce. Arcland's shares began trading on a split-adjusted basis on the OTC Bulletin Board effective October 20, 2008 under the new symbol "ACLY.OB," which replaces the previous symbol "ACLE.OB."

The focus of Arcland's present activities is the successful development of its Texas assets. Management also plans to investigate other upstream oil and gas opportunities that fit the Company's investment criteria emphasizing enhancement of asset portfolio and shareholder value by originating, developing and managing balanced, low risk and highly focused developmental drilling projects in areas with low drilling costs and high success rates.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Arcland Energy Corporation is a publicly traded company (OTCBB: ACLY) in oil and gas exploration, exploitation and production, focused on the domestic onshore basins of the Gulf Coast, West Texas and Mid-Continent regions, which holds operating acreage in the North West Texas area.
