CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 25, 2013) -


Poseidon Concepts Corp. ("Poseidon" or the "Company") announces that it has completed its previously announced sale of substantially all of Poseidon's high capacity water storage and containment systems business assets (the "Sale Transaction") to Rockwater Energy Solutions, Inc. ("Rockwater") of Houston, Texas pursuant to an asset purchase agreement (the "APA"). Poseidon is currently under creditor protection in Canada and the United States pursuant to the Companies Creditors' Arrangement Act ("CCAA") and Chapter 15 of the United States Bankruptcy Code ("Chapter 15"). The Alberta Court of the Queen's Bench and United States Bankruptcy Court (collectively, the "Courts") approved the Sale Transaction.

The net proceeds from the sale are being reported upon by the court appointed monitor, PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., and will be utilized or released pursuant to current orders of the Courts and such further orders of the Courts as may be granted from time to time. In connection with the CCAA and Chapter 15 proceedings, the Company continues to work on a plan to settle claims identified as part of its restructuring process. The net proceeds from the Sales Transaction will be less than the claims of secured creditors to the Company identified pursuant to the restructuring process.

Rockwater has not exercised its option to acquire the real property (the "Property") owned by Poseidon located in Edson, Alberta (the "Option"). It is contemplated that the Property will be sold to a party having submitted a qualified bid in relation thereto in connection with Poseidon's sales process.
