Longreach Oil & Gas Limited (TSXV: LOI) ("Longreach") and APIC
Petroleum Corporation (TSXV: API) ("APIC") wish to provide shareholders
with additional information respecting the proposed business
combination of APIC and Longreach.

In connection with the proposed scheme of arrangement between Longreach

on November 1 and November 8, 2012, APIC completed a non-brokered
offering ("Offering") of subscription receipts ("Subscription
Receipts"). An aggregate of 230,786,918 Subscription Receipts were
sold under the Offering at a price of C$0.13 per Subscription Receipt
for total gross proceeds of C$30,002,299.73.

On completion of the Arrangement, Longreach is expected to have three
shareholders holding more than 10% of Longreach's shares on a
non-diluted basis, being Dundee Corporation (15.21%), funds managed by
West Face Capital Inc. (10.60%) and funds managed by Blakeney LLP
(10.31%).

At the special meeting of APIC shareholders scheduled to be held on
December 4, 2012, APIC shareholders will be asked to ratify the
Offering and the participation of certain APIC insiders in the
Offering.
