Mincom Capital Inc. ("Mincom"), a Capital Pool Company ("CPC") trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") (TSX VENTURE:MOI.P), is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced qualifying transaction (the "QT") with Focus Graphite Inc.

The QT consists of the acquisition from Focus of all of Focus' rights, title and interest in a series of 149 contiguous and 2 isolated map-designated mining claims located in the Labrador Trough Territory of Quebec and collectively referred to as the Romer property (the "Property").
Under the terms of the property acquisition agreement, Mincom acquired all of Focus' rights, title and interest in the Property for the following consideration:

||The issuance of 2,500,000 common shares of Mincom to Focus at a deemed price of $0.30 per share for a total of $750,000.
Mincom proceeded today with the closing of the Offering for gross proceeds of $184,699.50, and consisted of the sale and issuance of (i) 615,665 common shares at a price of $0.30 per common share. The Offering closed concurrently with and was conditional on the completion of the QT. The QT was also conditional on the closing of the Offering. The Offering was not conducted through an intermediary. Mincom paid a cash commission of $11,970 in relation to the private placement and issued 39,900 non-transferable share purchase warrants exercisable at a price $0.30 per share until May 8, 2015.
Mr. Gary Economo, the President and CEO of Mincom, participated in the Offering by purchasing 83,333 common shares, which constitutes a related party transaction pursuant to TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101").
