Phoenix Oilfield Hauling Inc. Announces Proposed Share Consolidation at Upcoming Annual and Special Meeting

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 28, 2011) -


Phoenix Oilfield Hauling Inc. ("Phoenix" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PHN) announces that a special resolution proposing a consolidation of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares") will be tabled before the shareholders at the annual and special meeting of shareholders to be held on Wednesday, November 23, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. (Calgary time) at the offices of Werklund Capital Corp., located at Suite 4500, 400 – 3rd Avenue S.W., Calgary, Alberta (the "Meeting"). Shareholders of record as of the close of business on October 21, 2011 will be entitled to vote on the resolutions put forth at this Meeting.

Share Consolidation

At the Meeting, shareholders will be asked to provide the board of directors of the Company (the "Board") with the authority to amend the articles of the Company (the "Articles") to provide for a consolidation of the Common Shares, on the proposed basis of one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for every thirty (30) pre-consolidation Common Shares then issued and outstanding, or such lesser number of pre-consolidation Common Shares as may be determined by the Board or accepted by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Consolidation"). Notwithstanding the receipt of shareholder approval and the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, the Board may determine not to proceed with the Consolidation, or to proceed with the Consolidation on a lesser ratio than that described above.

The number of issued and outstanding Common Shares after completion of the Consolidation on the exchange ratio described above will be reduced from 172,851,317 Common Shares to approximately 5,761,710 Common Shares. Furthermore, each stock option, warrant, right or other security of the Company convertible into pre-consolidation Common Shares (the "Convertible Securities") that has not been exercised or cancelled prior to the effective date of the implementation of the Consolidation will be adjusted pursuant to the terms thereof on the same exchange ratio and each holder of pre-consolidation Convertible Securities will become entitled to receive post-consolidation Common Shares pursuant to such adjusted terms.

No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. Any fractional post-consolidation Common Shares to which a holder of such shares would otherwise be entitled shall be aggregated to form whole Common Shares with any remaining fractional post-consolidation Common Shares rounded up to the nearest whole number of a Common Share.

The Board and management believe that the anticipated higher share value resulting from the Consolidation may benefit the Corporation on a go forward basis by generating greater investor interest and attracting equity financing and by potentially increasing liquidity for Shareholders.

A further news release will be issued in the event the Consolidation receives the approval of the shareholders.

Further details regarding the Consolidation are described in the Company's proxy materials which will be available on in early November 2011.
