GDV Resources Inc. Closes Private Placement and Announces Reactivation Plans

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 18, 2013) - GDV Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GDV.H) (the "Company") today announced that it has received regulatory approval and has closed a $125,000 private placement of common shares ("Shares") at a price of $0.05 per Share. As detailed in the June 4, 2013 press release, Chris Carmichael, Chief Executive Officer of the Company subscribed for the 2,500,000 common shares of the Company. The Shares are subject to a four-month hold period ending on October 18, 2013. The proceeds of the financing will be used for general working capital purposes.

The Company also announces that it plans to apply for reactivation of its merchant banking operations with the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). The Company has scheduled a special meeting of its shareholders for August 7, 2013 where the Company will seek approval for a name change and a change to its board of directors. Subject to a financing, the Company's merchant banking operations will primarily be to provide secured bridge loans or secured convertible loans of up to $500,000 to micro-cap companies listed on the TSXV.

Completion of the reactivation is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, TSXV acceptance and a debt or equity financing. There can be no assurance that the reactivation will be completed as proposed or at all.

Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the filing statement to be prepared in connection with the reactivation, any information released or received with respect to the reactivation may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of an inactive company listed on the NEX Board of the TSX Venture Exchange should be considered highly speculative.
