VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - October 22, 2015) - EnWave Corporation (TSX VENTURE: ENW) (FRANKFURT: E4U) ("EnWave" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced "bought deal" private placement offering (the "Offering") to Cormark Securities Inc.

All securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a statutory four-month hold period, which expires on February 23, 2016.

The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for machine fabrications, working capital and general corporate purposes.
