TerraBioGen Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TBG), a developer and marketer of proprietary technologies for the production of organic-based, high-value agricultural products from organic wastes, announces that it has raised additional funding of $750,000 through a non-brokered private placement of 7,500,000 commons shares at $0.10 per share. The transaction is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. These funds will be used to enhance the Company's research and development, securing its intellectual property, and for production improvements.

The Company also announces that it has cancelled the balance of a previous $1.5 million private placement. The first tranche of that non-brokered private placement was closed in December 2011 with the issuance of 10,000,000 shares at a price of $0.10 per share for gross proceeds of $1,000,000 and 5,000,000 warrants exercisable at $0.15 up to June 9, 2013.

The Company further announces that it has cancelled a Master License Agreement ("MLA") for the Middle East. Under the terms of the MLA, the licensee was required to pay scheduled license fees but they were unable to make the required payments.
