BioExx Announces Closing of Private Placement

Saskatoon Plant Status Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 14, 2009) -


Bio-Extraction Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BXI) ("BioExx") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced private placement (the "Offering"), sold by a syndicate of agents led by Canaccord Capital Corporation and including and Fraser Mackenzie Limited, Loewen Ondaatje McCutcheon Limited, and Wellington West Capital Markets Inc.

Including the exercise of the increased Agent's Option as previously announced, the Offering consisted of 10,200,000 common shares at $0.52 per share for gross proceeds of $5,304,000. The common shares sold pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four month statutory hold period.

Plant Update

The Saskatoon plant is now generating regular sales through the shipping of truckload quantities of 100% of its production. Quality of the products has steadily increased since start-up, with meal quality now meeting or exceeding market specs, and oil expected to soon meet or exceed premium specs. The plant is now fully staffed with 19 employees and has operated steadily on a 7/24 basis since April 20th. Management expects that certain Phase 2 components which are scheduled to be installed in the coming weeks should further increase volumes and unit prices, thus moving the Company closer to operating breakeven at the plant. Crush Margins remain healthy with futures markets pointing to continued strength. In the interim, engineering and procurement work continues at a strong pace towards Phase 2 Extraction start-up in mid-Q3, followed closely by Phase 3 Proteins.
