DIVERGENT Energy Services Corp. Announces Closing of Private Placement

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 20, 2017) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

DIVERGENT Energy Services Corp. ("Divergent" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:DVG) announces that further to its press releases dated June 8, 2017, it has completed the closing of a non-brokered private placement for 5,000,000 common shares of the Corporation at a price of $0.15 per common share for gross proceeds of $750,000.

Insiders of the Corporation have participated in $33,750 (or 5%) of the private placement.

Divergent paid a finder's fee and finder's warrants of 6% of the gross proceeds to qualified non-related parties that participated. The fees amounted to $41,600 and the Corporation issued 276,000 finder's warrants that entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share for $0.15 until the expiry date of December 31, 2018.

The net proceeds will be used to advance the commercialization of the Corporation's Linear Pump by providing the needed capital to acquire complete Linear Pump systems, which include the linear motors, reciprocating pumps, power cable, tubing anchors, and surface controls. All items require time to fabricate and Divergent can be better positioned to take advantage of increasing client interest by having all the necessary equipment on hand. A portion of the net proceeds will be directed to general working capital needs to continue the growth of the US business.

Completion of the Private Placement is subject to regulatory approval including, but not limited to, the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. The common shares issued will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of closing of the Offering. Following closing of the Private Placement, the Corporation will have 104,953,227 Common Shares issued and outstanding.
