Nesscap Announces Cancellation of Investment Agreement With RUSNANO, Resignation of Dmitry Ozerskiy as A Director and Conversion of Outstanding Convertible Notes

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA and TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 4, 2015) - Nesscap Energy Inc. (Nesscap) (TSX VENTURE:NCE), a global leader in research, development and manufacturing of ultracapacitor products, announces that, further to its press release dated October 29, 2014, the Investment Agreement dated September 29, 2011 (the Investment Agreement) with Open Joint Stock Company RUSNANO (RUSNANO) together with all ancillary agreements is now formally cancelled by mutual agreement between the parties.

At a special meeting of shareholders held on December 16, 2014, the disinterested shareholders of Nesscap voted in favour of a resolution approving the return by Nesscap to RUSNANO of an amount of US$15,000,000, which had been held in escrow to be used for the establishment of ultracapacitor production and R&D facilities in the Russian Federation, in exchange for the return and cancellation of 33,970,000 common shares currently held by RUSNANO (the Transaction).

Nesscap and RUSNANO have mutually agreed to cancel their respective obligations under the Investment Agreement and all ancillary agreements after being unable to jointly develop a viable business plan for the establishment of Russian operations.

RUSNANO will continue to hold 16,985,000 common shares of Nesscap and be a valued partner of Nesscap in any future venture in the Russian Federation. Following completion of the Transaction Mr. Dmitry Ozerskiy resigned as a director of Nesscap.

In connection with the Transaction, Nesscap received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV) and determined that exemptive relief from the issuer bid requirements under the Securities Act (Ontario) was not required as RUSNANO is located in the Russian Federation.

Nesscap also announces that I2BF Energy Ltd. and Arbat Capital Limited have converted the US $5,829,334 principal amount outstanding under the 14% Convertible Notes of Nesscap (the Notes) held by them into 73,158,142 common shares of Nesscap.

Nesscap further entered into an agreement to issue shares to settle an interest amount of US $700,624.34 owed to I2BF and Arbat under the Notes. Nesscap will be issuing 8,792,836 common shares at a deemed price of $0.10/share in settlement of the interest amount. The issuance of these common shares is subject to TSXV approval.

As a result, Nesscap will have 274,786,636 common shares outstanding and US$1,000,000 of convertible debt outstanding.

As a result of the transactions described above I2BF now controls 98,960,087 common shares of Nesscap representing approximately 36% of the issued and outstanding common shares. If I2BF was to convert the Convertible Note of Nesscap held by it, the combined control of I2BF would represent a total of 111,639,072 common shares, or approximately 38.8% of such shares outstanding. I2BF acquired such common shares and Convertible Note for investment purposes and may increase or decrease its position in Nesscap depending on, among other factors, general market conditions.

Arbat now controls 65,454,699 common shares of Nesscap representing approximately 23.8% of the issued and outstanding common shares. Arbat acquired such common shares for investment purposes and may increase or decrease its position in Nesscap depending on, among other factors, general market conditions.
