KAL Energy, Inc. - Corrects Misrepresentations Made by Holder of Short Position in KAL

LONDON--(Marketwire - June 14, 2007) - KAL Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: KALG) (FRANKFURT: D9T) today published an open letter to shareholders addressing misrepresentation made by an author of a website-based article on the company.

Mr. Cameron Reynolds, KAL Energy CEO, stated, "The Company wholly refutes both the thrust and the specific content of the article. KAL has a strong management team, a world class coal project, and very sound capital and corporate structures, with a great track record of achievement. The author of the article has not been in contact with the company and has not made any attempt to validate any of the inaccurate claims made in the article with the company, its board or its management. This would indicate to us that checking content was not a concern for the author."

The "short position" the author declares at the end of the article places the author in a position of financial gain from any downward movement in the stock price and we feel betrays the true nefarious motives of the article.

The comprehensive open letter to shareholders is available for the KAL Energy website at:

The author is not known to the company, appears to be based in Peru and his partners appear to be based in other Latin American countries; he has no direct knowledge of our team, the company, nor its properties in Indonesia.

"The article, poorly researched and littered with incorrect assertions, was a complete surprise to us; especially on the day we released the extremely positive results contained in our JORC Compliant Resource Statement that showed we have an inferred coal resource of 204 million tonnes," Mr. Reynolds added.

KAL Energy will continue to fully focus its energy on delivering on its fundamentally strong business plan to become a world class producer of thermal coal supplying Asia's growing energy needs.

We are referring the matter to our legal counsel and the appropriate authorities, and will aggressively protect our shareholders from what appears to us to be a blatant attempt of share price manipulation.

KAL Energy, Inc. has rights to two coal concessions situated near the Mahakam River in North Eastern Kalimantan, Indonesia. This river is a main transportation system for transporting coal to nearby markets. One of the concessions has a JORC Compliant Inferred Resource of 204 Million tonnes of thermal coal. With one of the world's largest thermal coal exporters Kaltim Prima Coal (KPC) as its neighbor, KAL Energy's concessions are in a region that is known for its extensive open pit thermal coal producing mines and environmentally friendly coal product. Indonesia has recently surpassed Australia as the world's leading thermal coal exporter, with prices varying from $30.00 to $60.00 plus per tonne.
