Loon Announces Closing of Plan of Arrangement

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 11, 2008) - Loon Energy Inc. ("Loon" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:LEY) is pleased to announce that the previously announced plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") under the Business Corporations Act (Alberta) to reorganize the Company has been completed. The Arrangement was approved at the special meeting of securityholders held on December 9, 2008 and by the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta on December 10, 2008. Approximately 93.64% of the votes cast by the shareholders and the optionholders present at the meeting in person or by proxy, voting together as a single class, voted in favour of the special resolution to approve the Arrangement. Further, approximately 92.62% of the votes cast by the shareholders present at the meeting, in person or by proxy, voted in favour of the ordinary resolution to approve the stock option plan of Loon Energy Corporation.

Pursuant to the Arrangement, the assets of the Company in Colombia and Peru have been transferred to a new company named Loon Energy Corporation ("Loon Corp"), the Company, which retains the assets in Brunei, Syria, Slovenia and an investment in Jura Energy Corporation, has been renamed "Kulczyk Oil Ventures Inc." ("Kulczyk Oil") and Kulczyk Oil closed a non-brokered private placement of 48,000,000 common shares (the "Kulczyk Oil Shares") at a price of $0.25 per Kulczyk Oil Share for gross proceeds of $12,000,000. The sole subscriber to the private placement was Kulczyk Investments S.A., the major shareholder of the Company.

Shareholders of the Company will receive, for each Loon common share (the "Loon Shares") held, one Kulczyk Oil Share and one common share (a "Loon Corp Share") of Loon Corp, subject to receipt by the depositary of the duly completed letters of transmittal and certificates representing the Loon Shares and subject to the exercise of the put right. Shareholders holding an aggregate of 18,565,759 Loon Shares (representing approximately 19.34% of the then issued and outstanding Loon Shares) exercised their put right under the Arrangement to require Kulczyk Oil to purchase the Kulczyk Oil Shares that would otherwise be deliverable to those Shareholders under the Arrangement at a price of $0.25 per share.

After the closing of the Arrangement, the Loon Shares will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange and an application will be made in due course to list the Kulczyk Oil Shares on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. The Loon Corp Shares are expected to be listed on the TSX Venture Exchange sometime next week.
