TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 13, 2011) -

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

Candax Energy Inc. ("Candax" or the "Company") (TSX:CAX) is pleased to announce that the TSX Continued Listing Committee has finalized its review of Candax and has determined that the Company continues to meet the requirements for listing of its shares on the TSX. Candax had undergone a listing review subsequent to its announcement on December 14, 2010 that a two-phase restructuring of the Company's debt was being undertaken. On February 4, 2011, Candax closed this restructuring which resulted in Candax's debt being reduced from US$45 to US$23 under significantly improved terms. These new terms have provided Candax with a much improved balance sheet as evidenced by the removal of the going concern notation in the Company's audited consolidated year-end financial statements for the period ended December 31, 2010.

Richard Norris, CEO of Candax, commented:

"We are very pleased with the outcome of this review and we look to focusing efforts on Candax assets to maximize value to all shareholders."

Candax Energy Inc. is an international energy company with its head office in Toronto and offices in Tunis and Madagascar. The Candax group is engaged in exploration and the production of oil and gas and power generation in Tunisia and holds an interest in an exploration permit in Madagascar.
