CORRE Announces Financing Completion and Debt Retirement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 10, 2015) - Canadian Oil Recovery and Remediation Enterprises Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CVR) ("CORRE" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has received all subscription materials and subscription funds in connection with its previously announced private placement financing (the "Financing") of units (each a "Unit") at a price of $0.05 per Unit. An aggregate of 35,877,960 Units have been subscribed for, with gross proceeds being $1,783,898. Five Insiders have subscribed under this financing, with the total of their subscriptions being 24,921,960 Units (for gross proceeds of $1,246,098). Each Unit issued under the Financing will consist of one common share of CORRE (a "Common Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional Common Share at a price of $0.075 for a period of 4 years from closing. All of the Common Shares and warrants issued in connection with this Financing will be subject to a statutory four-month hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws. Closing of this Financing is subject to receipt of final approval by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), which has been requested today.

Concurrent with the Company's submission to the Exchange for final approval in respect of the Financing, the Company has also requested approval for the issuance of 20,060,000 Units at a price of $0.05 per Unit for the purpose of retiring $1,003,000 of indebtedness owing under previously provided shareholder loans. The holder of the indebtedness is also an Insider of the Company.

Closing of the foregoing matters is expected to occur immediately following receipt of approval thereof by the Exchange. The foregoing matters are considered "Related Party Transactions" under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions, however the Company will rely upon available exemptions from the minority shareholder approval and valuation requirements set forth in that Instrument.

The capital raised under this Financing will be utilized by CORRE to pursue new revenue generating opportunities, to formalize new partnerships and agreements, and for working capital.

Mr. John Lorenzo, the Company's CEO, stated, "We are very pleased to have received such strong support for this Financing. We are also very appreciative to have obtained the shareholder loans referenced above and to be able to retire these loans and further clean up our balance sheet. With these additional funds in hand and the improvements made to our balance sheet we are well positioned to continue our pursuit of revenue generating soil remediation opportunities in the MENA region in 2015."
