DevCorp Capital Inc. ("DevCorp" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:DCC.P) is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed its initial public offering ("Offering") raising gross proceeds of $300,000 pursuant to a prospectus dated August 24, 2011.

The trading of the Shares was immediately halted upon listing pending closing of the Offering. The Corporation expects the trading to resume on November 8, 2011.
