PetroShale Announces New Senior Loan Facility

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 24, 2014) - PetroShale Inc. ("PetroShale" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PSH)(OTCQX:PSHIF) is pleased to announce the closing of a new, senior secured revolving credit facility with an initial borrowing base capacity of US$10.0 million (the "Senior Facility"). The Senior Facility replaces the Company's senior loan from a U.S. financial institution which had a borrowing base of US$3.0 million.

The Senior Facility is a revolving demand loan provided by a Canadian chartered bank, with an initial term to July 23, 2015, at which point it will either be extended for an additional term, or converted to a term facility at the lender's option. As at September 24, 2014, the Senior Facility is drawn a total of US$2.9 million.

The Company's existing U.S.$30.0 million subordinated revolving credit facility (the "Subordinated Revolving Facility") will remain in place, and will be amended to reflect a grant of security interest in all of the Company's Canadian and U.S. assets, subject to a subordination agreement with the Canadian bank.

Outlook:

With access to U.S.$10 million under the Senior Facility, and U.S.$30 million under the existing Subordinated Revolving Facility, PetroShale has significant financial flexibility. The increase in the size of the Senior Facility reflects the success of the Company's land acquisition program to date, and positions PetroShale favorably for future growth.
