Gemini Corporation Enters Into Purchase Agreement with ONYX Drafting Services LLC

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 7, 2014) -


Gemini Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GKX) ("Gemini") has entered into a purchase agreement with ONYX Drafting Services LLC ("ONYX"), a limited liability company located in Chandler, Arizona. Gemini is acquiring 50% of the outstanding securities of ONYX and will retain an exclusive option to acquire the remaining 50% of the securities from ONYX three years from the closing date of the agreement (the "Transaction"). The purchase price will be settled through a combination of cash and Gemini shares issued from treasury.

ONYX provides drafting services through its base of operations in Arizona to a select number of clients operating in the oil and gas industry. This agreement fits squarely into Gemini's strategy of establishing out-of-market resources to augment its existing team of professionals situated in western Canada. The additional drafting capacity will be used to manage increasing client project needs in Canada and provides a window into the growing market in the United States.

"We intend to work closely with the ONYX team to grow this new business as a solid contributor to Gemini's diversified service offering. Establishing a presence in the United States is also an important developmental step for our organization in response to the increasing cross-border requirements of our alliance clients", stated Doug Lautermilch, Gemini's President and CEO.

The closing of the Transaction is subject to regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
