("Oceanic", or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FEO) is pleased to announce the completion of a private placement announced in the Company's news releases of August 29, 2016 and September 6, 2016. The Company issued 4,925,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.20 per unit for gross proceeds of $985,000 (the "Offering").

The issuance of Units to insiders is exempt from the valuation requirements and the minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 by virtue of the exemptions in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of MI-61-101, since the fair market value of the consideration for the Units issued to insiders did not exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
