Sprott Energy Opportunities Trust Announces Exchange Ratios

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 12, 2016) -


Sprott Asset Management LP ("Sprott"), on behalf of Sprott Energy Opportunities Trust (the "Trust"), is pleased to announce the exchange ratios for the exchange offer by the Trust (the "Exchange Option") being made under the final prospectus of the Trust dated December 6, 2016.

The investment objective of the Trust is to achieve long-term capital growth. The Trust has been created to invest in an actively managed portfolio comprised primarily of equity and equity-related securities of companies that are involved directly or indirectly in the exploration, development, production and distribution of oil, gas, coal, or uranium and other related activities in the energy and resource sector.

The number of units of the Trust ("Units") issuable for each class of security of an Exchange Eligible Issuer (as listed below) (the "Exchange Ratio") has been determined by dividing the weighted average trading price of such security on the Toronto Stock Exchange (or such other exchange or market on which such security is then listed) during the period of five consecutive trading days ending on December 12, 2016 (the "Pricing Period"), as adjusted to reflect distributions declared by any Exchange Eligible Issuer that will not be received by the Trust, by $10.00. The Exchange Ratio for any such securities that do not trade in Canadian dollars was determined by converting the weighted average trading price on the applicable exchange of such securities into Canadian dollars based on today's Bank of Canada noon rate of exchange. Holders of securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers who deposited such securities pursuant to the Exchange Option will continue to be holders of record up to but not including the date of the closing of the offering of Units and will be entitled to receive distributions in respect of such securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers that are declared up to but not including such date. Each Exchange Ratio will be rounded down to five decimal places.

The table below sets out the Exchange Eligible Issuers, the securities of which may be accepted by the Trust pursuant to the Exchange Option, including the name of the Exchange Eligible Issuer, its ticker symbol, its CUSIP number, its ISIN, its volume weighted average trading price during the Pricing Period and the Exchange Ratio.
