CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 11, 2014) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE U.S.

Arsenal Energy Inc. ("Arsenal" or the "Corporation") (TSX:AEI) announces it has entered into an equity financing agreement, on a bought deal basis, with Acumen Capital Finance Partners Limited, as lead underwriter on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters including National Bank Financial Inc., Industrial Alliances Securities Inc. and PI Financial Corp.

Under the terms of the agreement Arsenal will issue 428,000 common shares to be issued on a "flow-through" basis pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) in respect of Canadian exploration expenses (the "CEE FT Shares") at a price of $9.35 per CEE FT Share (the "Offering Price") for gross proceeds of $4,001,800. The Underwriters have been granted an option by the Company (the "Over-Allotment Option") to acquire up to an additional 64,200 CEE FT Shares at the Offering Price, as applicable. The Over-Allotment Option is exercisable in whole or in part for a period of 30 days from closing of the offering.

The financing is expected to close on or about July 3, 2014 and is subject to approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange, receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals and other customary conditions.

The gross proceeds from the sale of the CEE FT Shares will be used to incur Canadian exploration expenses ("CEE") for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and such CEE will be renounced to subscribers for the 2014 tax year.
