Silverwing Announces Securityholders Approve Arrangement

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 17, 2008) -


Silverwing Energy Inc. (TSX:SVW) ("Silverwing" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, further to its press release of September 18, 2008, at a special meeting held yesterday, 99.9% of the holders of the common shares, options and warrants to purchase common shares who voted at the meeting approved the proposed plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") involving Bonterra Energy Income Trust ("Bonterra").

Pursuant to the terms of the Arrangement, on or before October 15, 2008, Silverwing shareholders were entitled to elect to receive either: (i) $0.073 in cash; or (ii) 0.002166 of a unit of the Bonterra (a "Trust Unit") for each Silverwing common share. Where no election was made by the deadline, Silverwing shareholders are deemed to have elected to receive cash. No fractional Trust Units will be issued. Any Silverwing convertible securities (consisting of options, warrants and performance warrants) that have not been exercised prior to closing of the Arrangement will be automatically cancelled upon the Arrangement becoming effective. All dollar amounts in this press release are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.

Assuming that the final approval of the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta is obtained on October 22, 2008 and subject to other conditions and approvals being met, it is expected that the Arrangement will be completed on or about November 14, 2008. Completion of the Arrangement is subject to various conditions and approvals as detailed in the joint management information circular of Bonterra Trust and Silverwing Energy Inc. dated September 17, 2008 (the "Information Circular"). A detailed description of the Arrangement is contained in the Information Circular, a copy of which is available on SEDAR at
