HONG KONG, CHINA--(Marketwired - Dec. 30, 2013) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES, OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Primeline Energy Holdings Inc. ("Primeline" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PEH) today announced that it has closed the first tranche of its previously announced private placement offering led by D&D Securities Inc. (the "Agent") as Agent. Primeline issued a total of 7,652,500 units ("Units") at a price of $0.55 per Unit for gross proceeds of $4,208,875. Each Unit consists of one ordinary share (a "Common Share") and one half of one warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant is exercisable to purchase a further Common Share at a price of $0.90 per share for 24 months from today. Primeline will have the right to accelerate expiry of the Warrants if the volume weighted average closing price of the common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") exceeds $1.35 per share for 10 consecutive trading days by giving notice, whereupon the Warrants will expire 30 days from the date of notice. The Agent was paid a cash commission of 7% of the gross proceeds, and together with members of its selling group issued 612,200 warrants ("Broker Warrants"), equal to 8% of the number of Units sold. Each Broker Warrant is exercisable for 24 months to purchase a Common Share at $0.55 per share. The private placement is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Common Shares comprised in the Units, the Warrants, and any Common Shares issued on exercise of the Warrants and the Agent's Warrants, will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from today. The net proceeds from the first tranche of the private placement will be used to fund a portion of Primeline's share of the costs of the seismic survey announced in Primeline's press release of December 13, 2013.
