NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Exito Energy II Inc. ("Exito" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:EXI.P) announces that it will no longer proceed with its previously announced proposed qualifying transaction ("QT") involving an amalgamation with Millennium Stimulation Services Ltd.

Exito further announces that it has signed a non-binding term sheet (the "Term Sheet") with MagneticNorth Partners Inc. ("Magnetic") that contemplates the acquisition by Exito of all of the issued and outstanding shares of Magnetic (the "Transaction"), which if completed would constitute Exito's QT. The Term Sheet represents the basis from which Exito and Magnetic intend to negotiate a more formal letter of intent (the "LOI"). Exito and Magnetic are actively working towards completion of the LOI, and if finalized, will news release further details relating to the Transaction.

The Transaction is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture and the policies of the TSX Venture relating to QT's, as well as shareholder approval of Exito.

Trading Suspension & QT Deadline Extension

Exito's deadline for completing a QT was May 7, 2015. As a result of not completing a QT prior to this deadline, trading of Exito shares has been suspended and trading will remain suspended in accordance with the TSX Venture's policies until such time as the TSX Venture lifts the suspension. Due to ongoing challenging market conditions, the TSX Venture has granted Exito a discretionary extension to its QT deadline until May 13, 2016.

As indicated above, completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, TSX Venture acceptance and shareholder approvals. The Transaction cannot close until the required shareholder approvals are obtained. There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.

Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the Information Circular of Exito to be prepared in connection with the Transaction, any information released or received with respect to the Transaction may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon.
