Royal Capital Corp. Announces Listing on the TSX Venture Exchange and the Entering Into of a Conditional Letter Agreement for a Potential Qualifying Transaction

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 13, 2008) - Royal Capital Corp. -


Royal Capital Corp. ("Royal"), a capital pool company, is pleased to announce that the Exchange has approved its application to list on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). The common shares of Royal are expected to be listed for trading on the Exchange effective June 17, 2008 under the trading symbol "RCX.P". Trading in Royal's common shares will be halted immediately pending submission of certain additional required documentation to the Exchange regarding the proposed transaction discussed below.

Royal is also pleased to announce that it has entered into a conditional letter agreement (the "Conditional Letter Agreement") dated June 5, 2008 in respect of a potential arm's length acquisition (the "Proposed Qualifying Transaction") of Raging River Corp. ("Raging River"), a privately held corporation incorporated under the laws of Nevada. If completed, Royal intends that the proposed acquisition of Raging River will constitute Royal's "qualifying transaction" for purposes of the capital pool company policy of the Exchange (the "CPC Policy").

Pursuit and completion of the Proposed Qualifying Transaction is subject to a number of conditions contained in the Conditional Letter Agreement including, among others: (i) obtaining all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval by the Exchange that the Proposed Qualifying Transaction qualifies as Royal's "qualifying transaction" for purposes of the CPC Policy; (ii) negotiating and entering into a definitive agreement; (iii) obtaining the approval of the directors of each of Royal and Raging River; (iv) obtaining the approval of the shareholders of each of Royal and Raging River, if necessary; (v) completion of satisfactory due diligence reviews of Raging River and Royal by each of Royal and Raging River, respectively; and (vi) other conditions typical of a transaction of this nature.

Royal and Raging River are currently working to satisfy certain requirements necessary to receive the approval by the Exchange that the Proposed Qualifying Transaction qualifies as Royal's "qualifying transaction" for purposes of the CPC Policy. In order to meet the requirements of the Exchange, it is possible that the terms of the Proposed Qualifying Transaction could be amended from those currently contemplated by the parties in the Conditional Letter Agreement. Further, it is anticipated that it could take up to 120 days to determine if Royal and Raging River are able to satisfy certain of the Exchange's requirements. Royal will issue further press releases from time to time providing status updates on this Proposed Qualifying Transaction included details on the terms of the Proposed Qualifying Transaction once such terms are finalized and agreed to by the parties.
