CWC Energy Services Corp. Renews Normal Course Issuer Bid for Its Common Shares

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 20, 2015) - CWC Energy Services Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CWC)("CWC" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it intends to renew its Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Bid") to purchase for cancellation, from time to time, as CWC considers advisable, a maximum of 14,229,807 common shares (the "Common Shares"), subject to receipt of approval from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"). The maximum number of Common Shares to be purchased pursuant to the Bid represents approximately 5% of the outstanding Common Shares on the date hereof. Purchases of Common Shares will be made on the open market through the facilities of the TSXV. The price which CWC will pay for any Common Shares purchased by it will be the prevailing market price of the Common Shares on the TSXV at the time of such purchase. The actual number of Common Shares that may be purchased for cancellation and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by CWC.

It is anticipated that the Bid will commence on May 22, 2015 and will terminate on May 21, 2016 or such earlier date as the Bid is completed or terminated at the option of CWC. The Company has retained Raymond James Ltd. as its broker to conduct the normal course issuer bid on its behalf.

Under its previous Normal Course Issuer Bid, which expired on May 21, 2015, CWC purchased 1,091,000 Common Shares, representing less than 1% of the Company's outstanding shares on May 22, 2015 at an average price of $0.85 per Common share.

Management of CWC believes that, from time to time, the market price of the Common Shares may not fully reflect the underlying value of the Common Shares and that at such times the purchase of Common Shares would be in the best interests of CWC. Such purchases will increase the proportionate interest of, and may be advantageous to, all remaining shareholders. In addition, the purchases by CWC may increase liquidity to shareholders wishing to sell their Common Shares.
