Laurel Hill Congratulates Crown Point Energy on the Resounding Shareholder Support at the Requisitioned Shareholder Meeting

CALGARY, ALBERTA and NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwired - Feb. 25, 2015) - Laurel Hill Advisory Group congratulates our client, Crown Point Energy, on the successful outcome at its Special Meeting of Shareholders held on February 24, 2015 in Calgary Alberta. The Shareholders overwhelmingly rejected, by nearly a 2-1 vote margin, a Requisition by dissident shareholder LAIG Oil Investments to replace the independent and non-management Board members (including the nominees of the Strategic Investors) with LAIG nominees.

The Shareholders also approved a US$8.5 million second tranche private placement of shares (the "Second Tranche") with the two strategic investors. The funds will provide essential capital and enable Crown Point to advance its promising near-term exploration and development initiatives.

"We'd like to thank the shareholders for all their support," said Crown Point Energy's President and CEO Murray D. McCartney. "This was a team effort and everyone worked very hard to achieve our success at this meeting. We greatly appreciate the efforts of the Laurel Hill Advisory Group, our proxy solicitor."

"On behalf of the Laurel Hill team, we congratulate Crown Point on achieving such clear-cut shareholder support," added David Salmon, Laurel Hill's Senior Vice President.
