Petroforte Announces Upcoming Share Consolidation, Name Change and New Ticker Symbol (TSXV: CAC)

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 20, 2014) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Petroforte International Ltd., ("Petroforte" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:PFI) is pleased to announce that it intends to complete the previously announced share consolidation and name change on Friday, February 21, 2014 (the "Effective Date").

Share Consolidation:

The Company's issued and outstanding common shares will be consolidated on the basis of one (1) new common share of the Company for every six (6) existing common shares on the Effective Date (the "Consolidation"). The Consolidation received shareholder approval at the annual and special meeting of shareholders held December 17, 2013 (the "Shareholders' Meeting") and approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") on February 19, 2014.

Both management and the board of directors believes that the Consolidation is in the best interests of the Corporation's shareholders and is necessary in order to provide the Corporation with a share capital structure that will better attract capital financing and enhance future growth opportunities. The implementation of the Consolidation will not affect the total shareholders' equity of Petroforte or any components of shareholders' equity as reflected on Petroforte's financial statements except: (i) to change the number of issued and outstanding common shares; and (ii) to change the stated capital of the common shares to reflect the Consolidation.

Name Change and New Ticker Symbol:

The Company's name will change from "Petroforte International Ltd." to "Canamax Energy Ltd." on the Effective Date (the "Name Change") and the Company will simultaneously begin using "CAC" as its new ticker symbol. The board of directors feels that the new name more accurately depicts the Corporation's focus on the Canadian energy sector. The Name Change received shareholder approval at the Shareholders' Meeting and approval from the TSXV on February 19, 2014.
