Primeline Energy Holdings Inc.: Term Sheet for Settlement of Debt Becomes Binding

HONG KONG, HONG KONG--(Marketwired - June 19, 2013) -


Primeline Energy Holdings Inc. ("Primeline" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PEH) today announced that the term sheet under which Primeline has agreed to issue US$6.7 million of unsecured Convertible Bonds to its Chairman and President, Mr Victor Hwang in settlement of the existing interest free working capital loan previously made available by Mr Hwang to the Company, announced on June 10, 2013, has now become binding. The term sheet was previously made subject to independent shareholder approval but there is an exemption from such requirement under TSX Venture Exchange Rules so the terms have been amended to delete such requirement. The issuance of the Bonds to Mr Hwang will nevertheless remain conditional on receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.

Primeline also announced the resignation of Brian Chan as its corporate secretary. Mr. Chan will remain as a member of the Company's board of directors. Mr. Andrew Biggs, the Company's Senior Vice President and General Counsel, will replace Mr. Chan as secretary.
