NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

MCW Energy Group Limited (FRANKFURT:MW4) ("MCW"), is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of its previously announced brokered private placement offering (the "Private Placement") of 2,800,000 subscription receipts ("Subscription Receipts") at a price of Cdn $0.50 per Subscription Receipt for total gross proceeds of Cdn $1,400,000. Each Subscription Receipt is convertible into one unit of MCW (each an "MCW Unit") immediately prior to the closing of MCW's amalgamation (the "Amalgamation") with AXEA Capital Corp. ("AXEA"). Each MCW Unit is comprised of one common share of MCW and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each an "MCW Warrant"). Effectively on closing of the Amalgamation, each four MCW Units shall be exchanged into one unit of AXEA, comprised of one AXEA Share (at a deemed price of Cdn $2.00 per share) and one-half of one share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one AXEA Share at a price of Cdn $3.00 per share until the date that is 24 months following the closing of the Amalgamation. The Private Placement was led by Stonecap Securities Inc.

The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to fund the final payment of MCW's first 250 bbl/d oil sands extraction unit (the "Commercial Facility") to be located in the Uinta basin of Utah, and for general working capital purposes. Construction has been completed and, the Commercial Facility is currently in transit to Utah. Management of MCW anticipates installation to begin early in the third quarter of 2012, followed by first production approximately one month later.

The net proceeds of the Private Placement (the "Escrowed Proceeds") will be held in escrow. The Escrowed Proceeds (and accrued interest) will be released to MCW upon satisfaction of certain customary conditions.

MCW is currently listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and voluntarily entered into a "quiet period" until completion of the Amalgamation.
