Touchstone Announces Credit Facility Covenant Update and Refiling of Q3 2015 Management's Discussion and Analysis

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 14, 2016) - Touchstone Exploration Inc. ("Touchstone" or the "Company") (TSX:TXP) announces an update on its credit facility covenants and the refiling of its September 30, 2015 Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A").

As previously disclosed, the Company was in breach of its monthly production volume bank facility covenant for the calendar months of October and November 2015. The Company is pleased to announce that it executed a waiver with its lender relating to these breaches on December 31, 2015. There were no specific terms required to be addressed by the Company nor were there revisions to any covenants in the credit facility included in the waiver. Touchstone also announces that it was not in breach of the December 2015 production covenant. The Company remains in discussions with its lender to further revise the credit facility to manage the issues associated with the monthly production covenant.

As a result of a review by the Alberta Securities Commission, the Company has refiled its MD&A of its financial position for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015. This was done in an effort to clarify its continuous disclosure regarding its bank facility production covenants as disclosed in the Company's December 9, 2015 new release. Additional disclosure has also been provided in the amended MD&A relating to material contracts and future commitments.
