(TSX VENTURE:PDO) (the "Company") announces that the Company will be seeking shareholder approval to consolidate the Company's common shares ("Common Shares") on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for every five (5) pre-consolidation Common Shares or at such lower consolidation ratio as may be required by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Share Consolidation").

As at the date hereof, there are an aggregate of 48,745,539 Common Shares issued and outstanding. It is expected that, upon completion of the Share Consolidation, there will be an aggregate of approximately 9,749,107 Common Shares issued and outstanding.

Upon completion of the Share Consolidation, the Company will also change its name to "Galileo Petroleum Ltd." (the "Name Change"). The completion of the Share Consolidation is subject to obtaining the requisite approval of the shareholders at the Meeting and the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange including meeting the minimum distribution requirements. The Name Change will also be subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Company may, in connection with the Name Change, change its stock symbol. Further information on this will be announced at a later date.
