Petro Vista Announces Adoption of Advance Notice Policy

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 20, 2013) - Petro Vista Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PTV) ("Petro Vista" or the "Company"), announces the approval by its board of directors of an advance notice policy (the "Advance Notice Policy").

The purpose of the Advance Notice Policy is to provide a clear process for the shareholders, directors and management to follow when nominating directors of the Company. Such a policy will ensure that shareholders receive adequate notice of director nominations and sufficient information regarding all director nominees and allow shareholders to register an informed vote after having been afforded reasonable time for appropriate deliberation.

The Advance Notice Policy, among other things, includes a provision that requires advance notice to the Company in certain circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the board of directors are made by shareholders of the Company. This policy also sets a deadline by which director nominations must be submitted to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of the shareholders and also sets out the required information that must be included in the notice to the Company. No person will be eligible for election as a director of the Company unless nominated in accordance with the Advance Notice Policy.

In the case of an annual meeting of the shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not less than 35 days and not more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. If the annual meeting is being held on a date that is less than 50 days following the date on which the first public announcement of the meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement.

In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting) called for the purpose of electing directors, notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the board of directors may, in its sole discretion, waive any requirement of the Advance Notice Policy.

The Advance Notice Policy is in effect as at the date this news release and the Company intends to seek shareholders' approval to amend the Company's articles to incorporate the provisions of the Advance Notice Policy at the Company's upcoming annual general and special meeting of shareholders (the "Shareholders' Meeting") scheduled to be held on October 29, 2013. Any director nominations for the Shareholders' Meeting must be received in compliance with the Advance Notice Policy no later than the close of business on September 23, 2013.

ON BEHALF OF PETRO VISTA ENERGY CORP.

Keith Hill, Chairman of the Board of Directors

NEITHER THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE NOR ITS REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER (AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN THE POLICIES OF THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE) ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS RELEASE.
