Petro One Announces Financing Backed by $650,000 Pledge

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 3, 2014) - Petro One Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:POP) is pleased to report that Korea Myanmar Development Company Ltd. ("KMDC") and its subsidiary, KMDC Resources Ltd. ("Resources"), have agreed to terms which will improve the Company's financial position by at least $650,000 by November 30, 2014. Details of the agreement are as follows:

1. KMDC will subscribe and pay for, or arrange for other persons to subscribe and pay for, 8,000,000 units (each a "Unit") having an aggregate subscription price of $2,000,000 not later than November 30, 2014 (the "Financing"). Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company and one warrant exercisable to purchase one additional common share for $0.375 for two years after closing, subject to accelerated exercise if the Company's shares trade over $2.00 for a period of 10 consecutive trading days after four months from the closing date.

2. Funding of the Financing by November 30, 2014 will relieve KMDC and its associates of all obligations not previously met in respect of the private placement that completed on October 7, 2014. However, Resources will forfeit to the Company 2,600,000 shares and 2,600,000 warrants if the Financing is not fully funded by November 30, 2014.

3. Petro One will hereafter have the right and option, exercisable at any time and from time to time, to drill up to four wells on properties ("Properties") which are the subject of the July 25, 2014 Program Earning and Joint Venture Agreement with KMDC (the "KMDC Agreement") and will in each such event retain an undivided 100% legal and beneficial right, title and interest in and to such well and the spacing unit for such well.

4. KMDC's obligation in respect of the drilling fund will be increased from $14,000,000 to $14,460,000 and the time for funding the increased amount will be extended from November 7, 2014 to January 30, 2015.

5. Petro One will hereafter have the option, exercisable at any time prior to receipt of the full amount of $14,460,000, to market the Properties and to dispose of interests in all or any of the Properties on such terms as it deems appropriate. If Petro One proposes to dispose of an interest, KMDC will have ten days after receiving notice of the proposed disposition to pay the full amount of $14,460,000, or so much thereof as shall then remain owing to the Company to satisfy KMDC's obligation in respect of the Drilling Fund. If KMDC makes the required payment during such ten day period, Petro One will not proceed with the proposed disposition. If KMDC does not make such payment within the time permitted and if Petro One thereafter concludes the subject disposition, KMDC's obligations in respect of the Drilling Fund will be commensurately reduced. Otherwise, the total financial commitment of KMDC under the KMDC Agreement remains at $18,000,000.

The Financing will be carried out by way of non-brokered private placement. Aberdeen Gould Capital Markets Ltd., an Exempt Market Dealer, will receive cash compensation equal to 8% of the gross subscription proceeds plus finder's warrants entitling Aberdeen to purchase that number of common shares which is equal to 8% of the number of Units issued, exercisable at $0.25 for two years after closing and subject to acceleration on the same terms as the warrants comprised in the Units. Proceeds from the Financing will be used for the Company's general working capital purposes. All shares issued pursuant to the Financing and any shares issued pursuant to the exercise of warrants or finder's warrants will be subject to a four-month hold period from the closing date. The Financing is subject to acceptance by the TSXV.

The Company will report on further developments as they occur.
