Bayshore Petroleum Corp. Restructures Balance Sheet; Pays Shares for Existing Debt and Services

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Oct. 16, 2014) -

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

Bayshore Petroleum Corp. ("Bayshore" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BSH) announces that it has closed agreements with several parties to reduce debt and payables for services in order to conserve cash and lower financial risk.

First, Bayshore has reached agreement with two debt-holders who are also directors/insiders of the Company. These directors lent cash to the Company on a demand basis at various times over the last two years and the debt and accrued interest now totals $455,008. The directors have agreed to exchange $229,308 of this debt for a convertible debenture (the "CD"). The issuance of the CD constitutes a private placement. The CD has a 5% interest rate and is fully or partially convertible to common shares of the Company at $0.185/share. Full conversion of the CD would result in the issuance of 1,239,503 shares of the Company. The CD has a two year term at the end of which the debt must be repaid or renegotiated. The CD also has a forced-conversion feature that is triggered if the share price trades above $1/share for more than 10 consecutive trading days. The issuance of the CD is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.

The remaining $225,700 of debt from the above total of $455,008 shall be repaid via the issuance of 1,220,000 common shares of the Company at a deemed price of $0.185. This exchange of shares for debt is also subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.

In addition, four consultants to the Company have agreed to accept shares in consideration for services previously provided to the Company. The value of the services totals $60,661 and shall be paid with 328,000 shares at an average share price of $0.185/share. One of the consultants is now the CFO and an insider of the Company. He invoiced the Company for consulting services prior to September 23, 2014, when he was appointed CFO.
