Not for distribution to United States newswire services or for dissemination in the United States.

Candax Energy Inc. (TSX:CAX) ("Candax") today reported a third quarter profit of Cdn$3.0 million ($0.04 per common share) compared to a loss of Cdn$0.2 million in the third quarter of 2004. The net profit for the first nine months of 2005 was $2.3 million ($0.06 per common share), compared to a loss of $0.2 million for the same period in 2004.

The third quarter marked the first full quarter for which Candax reported the results of operations from its Tunisian assets. Strong sales volume and record prices were partially offset by the production shut-in and related costs at the El Bibane field. In spite of the shut-in at El Bibane, revenues of Cdn$9.2 million were earned in the quarter, resulting in a pre-tax profit of Cdn$3.3 million for the quarter.
