Huntington Announces Proposed Share Consolidation and Private Placement of Units

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 9, 2016) - Huntington Exploration Inc. ("HEI" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HEI) announced today that the Board of Directors has unanimously approved a consolidation of its share capital on the basis of one (1) new common share for every existing six (6) common shares (the "Consolidation"), subject to regulatory approval, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. In addition, the Company intends to complete a non-brokered private placement offering of units ("Units") for gross proceeds of up to $500,000 (the "Private Placement").

Consolidation

Effective on or about Tuesday, June 14, 2016, HEI will complete the Consolidation. Where the exchange results in a fractional share, the number of common shares will be rounded up to the nearest whole common share. The Board of Directors believes that the Consolidation should enhance the marketability of the common share as an investment and should facilitate additional financings to fund operations in the future. Shareholder approval of the Consolidation was obtained at the annual general and special shareholders meeting held on September 17, 2015. A new CUSIP number of 445901200 replaces the old CUSIP number of 445901101, to distinguish between the pre- and post-consolidated shares. The Company's name and trading symbol will remain unchanged.

Commencing at the opening of trading on or about Tuesday June 14, 2016, the common shares of the Company will trade on a post-Consolidation basis on the TSX Venture Exchange. Following the Consolidation, there are expected to be 22,931,056 post-Consolidation shares outstanding.

Private Placement

The Company further announced its intention to complete the Private Placement of Units at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $500,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share (on a post-Consolidation basis) and one transferable common share purchase warrant, which each warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share (on a post-Consolidation basis) at a price of $0.05 per share for a period of thirty six months from closing.

The closing of the Private Placement is expected to occur on or about June 30, 2016 and is subject to regulatory approval, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. For further details on the Private Placement, please contact the Company. All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a hold period of four months from the date of closing. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement to acquire new projects in the resource mining sector that will strategically complement the Company's existing portfolio of oil and gas assets and for general working capital purposes, and HEI confirms that the proceeds will not be used to retire any current debt or to pay any management fees.

HEI is an exploration-focused corporation actively pursuing opportunities in the oil and natural gas business in the Western Canada sedimentary basin.
