Pennine Petroleum Corporation (TSX VENTURE:PNN) (or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it has closed the second and final tranche of the non-brokered private placement ("Financing") previously announced on March 22, 2016, and amended on May 25, 2016, for total proceeds of C$731,650.
Funds raised during this Financing will be used:
- to enact and advance the terms of a production-sharing agreement for the Velca Block in southern Albania; and

The Financing consists of 36,582,500 units at a price of C$0.02 per unit. Each unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant ("Warrant") at an exercise price of $0.05. Each Warrant is subject to an expiry date of one year from the closing of the Financing.
The Warrants are subject to an acceleration clause. This clause states that if, four months and one day after the Warrants are issued, the closing price of the common shares of the Corporation, on the principal market on which such shares trade, is equal to or exceeds 20 cents for 20 consecutive trading days, the Warrant expiry date shall accelerate to a date 20 calendar days after issuance of a press release by the Corporation announcing the reduced Warrant term provided, and no more than five business days following the eligible acceleration date, that:
