The securities offered have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or applicable exemption from the registration requirements.

Forward Looking Statements

This document contains forward-looking statements. More particularly, this document contains statements which include, but are not limited to, the timing of closing of the offering, the anticipated use of proceeds and the receipt of the required regulatory and third party approvals.

The forward-looking statements are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by TriOil. Although TriOil believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements because TriOil can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. In addition to other risks that may affect the forward-looking statements in this press release, the closing of the offering could be delayed if TriOil is not able to obtain the necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals on the timelines it has planned and the offering will not be completed at all if these approvals are not obtained or some other condition to the closing is not satisfied. Accordingly, there is a risk that the offering will not be completed within the anticipated time or at all. The intended use of the net proceeds of the offering by TriOil might change if the board of directors of TriOil determines that it would be in the best interests of TriOil to deploy the proceeds for some other purpose.

The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date hereof and TriOil undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statements or information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless so required by applicable securities laws.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
