Crown Point Calls Special Meeting of Shareholders for March 24, 2015

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 4, 2014) - Crown Point Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CWV) ("Crown Point" or the "Company") announces that in response to a requisition made by LAIG Oil Investments ("LAIG"), Crown Point has called a special meeting of shareholders (the "Special Meeting") to be held on March 24, 2015.

Crown Point's Board selected the date for the Special Meeting based on a recommendation from a special committee of independent directors (the "Special Committee"). Crown Point's Board formed the Special Committee to, among other things, consider and respond to LAIG's meeting requisition. LAIG requisitioned the Special Meeting notwithstanding that only five months prior to the date of the requisition the current directors of Crown Point were each elected by at least 96% of the votes cast by shareholders at Crown Point's 2014 annual general meeting. LAIG's stated objective for the Special Meeting is to remove all of Crown Point's independent directors and elect a majority of its own nominees to the Board.

The Special Meeting date will provide the time required to inform shareholders about the results of Crown Point's ongoing 14 well capital program at Tierra del Fuego and the impact of that program on our production and reserves. Crown Point is targeting to have the capital program completed in February 2015 and to have its 2014 year-end reserves report completed in early March 2015. The Company intends to disclose the details as they become available so that shareholders will have this critical information prior to voting on the business to be conducted at the Special Meeting.

Crown Point will provide further important information regarding the Special Meeting in due course. A management information circular will be mailed to shareholders and posted to the Company's website and SEDAR in advance of the meeting.
