CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 2, 2016) -

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

A correction from source is being issued for a release that was disseminated today at 8:09 am EST for Trican Well Service Ltd. The second paragraph should have read "an additional 5.625 million Common Shares" instead of "an additional 9 million Common Shares". The corrected release follows.

Trican Well Service Ltd. ("Trican" or "the Corporation") (TSX:TCW) is pleased to announce it has amended the terms of its previously announced public offering to increase the size of the offering to 37.5 million common shares ("Common Shares") of Trican at a price of $1.60 per Common Share ("Issue Price") for aggregate gross proceeds of $60 million (the "Offering"). The Common Shares are being offered on a "bought deal" basis to a syndicate of underwriters led by RBC Capital Markets and Scotiabank (collectively, the "Underwriters").

Trican has also granted the Underwriters an option to purchase an additional 5.625 million Common Shares at the Issue Price to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes (the "Over-Allotment Option"). The Over-Allotment Option is exercisable in whole or in part at any time until 30 days after the closing of the Offering.

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to reduce outstanding debt and for general corporate purposes.

The Offering will be completed by way of a short form prospectus in all provinces of Canada, and in the United States pursuant to applicable exemptions from registration, and is expected to close on or before June 21 2016. Closing of the Offering will be subject to: (i)Trican entering into definitive agreements in respect of the agreement reached in principle with its bank lenders under Trican's revolving credit facility and the holders of its senior notes to make certain amendments to the applicable credit documentation announced on June 1, 2016 and the associated closing related thereto (the effectiveness of such amendments being subject to completion of the Offering), and, (ii)satisfaction of certain other customary closing conditions for the Offering, including regulatory and stock exchange approvals.

The Common Shares to be offered have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or under any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold within the United States except in certain transactions exempt from the registration requirements of such act. This release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation to buy such securities in the United States or in any other jurisdiction where such offer is unlawful.
