MicroPlanet Corporate Update

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON--(Marketwired - March 11, 2016) - MicroPlanet Technology Corp. ("MicroPlanet" or the "Corporation"), (NEX:MP.H)(OTC PINK:MCTYF), a provider of smart grid and power technology and products, is providing an update of its activities and operating status.

MicroPlanet is currently inactive due to financial hardship. However, the Corporation has been able to maintain and establish relationships with customers during its period of inactivity and has immediate customer demand for its products from utility companies in Australia, the United Kingdom and France. Management is currently exploring different options that would allow the Corporation to reconstitute manufacturing and meet its customer demand.

In that regard, MicroPlanet applied to the Alberta Securities Commission ("ASC") and Ontario Securities Commission ("OSC") for partial revocation orders in respect of the cease trade orders issued thereby in May 2015 (the "Cease Trade Orders") permitting the Corporation to undertake certain proposed transactions (the "Proposed Transactions"), namely the conversion of certain debts of the Corporation into equity securities and an offering of convertible notes, in order to improve the Corporation's balance sheet and raise funds to be used to rectify the Corporation's compliance issuance and maintain the viability of its business.

On March 8, 2016 and March 10, 2016, the ASC and OSC, respectively, issued partial revocation orders in respect of the Cease Trade Orders permitting MicroPlanet to undertake the Proposed Transactions.

While management remains optimistic that its efforts will prove successful, there remains a significant risk that the Corporation will not be able to raise adequate capital to fund operations and meet its obligations and continue as a going concern.

These risks and uncertainties include: the possibility that the parties will not proceeds with the Proposed Transactions; that the ultimate terms of the Proposed Transactions will differ from those that are currently contemplated; that the Proposed Transactions will not be successfully completed for any reason (including the failure to obtain the required approvals from regulatory authorities, including the TSX Venture Exchange); and the cooperation of creditors of the Corporation. Investors are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements.
