VAL D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 4, 2015) - Active Growth Capital Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ACK) ("ACK" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce a proposed private placement of up to 5,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $250,000 (the "Private Placement"). Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share (a "Share") of the Corporation and one (1) Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one (1) Share at a price of $0.10 per Share for a period of two (2) years from issuance.

The Corporation anticipates that insiders may subscribe for greater than 25% of the private placement. The issuance of Units to insiders pursuant to the private placement is considered to be a related party transaction subject to TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101. The Corporation intends to rely on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under sections 5.5(c) and 5.7(b) of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 on the basis that the Private Placement constitutes a distribution of securities for cash to insiders which is within the parameters of those sections.

ACK intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for working capital, general corporate purposes and to analyse historical data of the 100% newly acquired dolomite / magnesium Portage property for the structuring of an exploration / drilling campaign.

About Magnesium

There are many advantages to using magnesium and its alloys. With the lowest density of all commercial casting alloys, magnesium is 33% lighter than aluminum and 75% lighter than steel. Despite the lower density, magnesium alloys have a comparable strength to weight ratio to aluminum. Magnesium and its alloys also have a high vibration damping capacity making them an ideal material choice for many high speed applications. Electromagnetic interference reduction is another desirable quality that magnesium can offer as a material.

The Shares issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month and a day hold period in accordance with the policies of the TSXV and applicable securities legislation. The Private Placement remains subject to the approval of the TSXV.
