UnionTown Energy Inc. (UTOG) to Become Fully Reporting Entity With Intent to List on New Exchange

BILLINGS, MT--(Marketwire - Jun 12, 2012) - UnionTown Energy Inc. (PINKSHEETS: UTOG) is pleased to announce that it has begun work on becoming a fully reporting company again with the intent to list on the Canadian National Stock Exchange or a similar exchange.

UnionTown Energy Inc. will be working with its independent accountants, lawyers and auditors to resume being fully reporting and compliant again. The Company will also be working with the BCSC and SEC to bring all of its filings up to date.

The CNSX is recognized by the Ontario Securities Commission as a stock exchange and is subject to OSC regulatory requirements with the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada providing market surveillance and regulatory oversight.

Structurally, CNSX trading is facilitated by the combination of a "central auction market" with the added benefit of enhanced trading liquidity provided by a Market Maker Program.

A central auction market is a stock exchange trading system that provides a continuous auction in securities of its listed companies. It has been proven around the world as the most efficient means of trading stock. It is a system that focuses on "time priority" in all trades, which results in all investors being treated fairly. Enhancing this system are the Market Makers, who are professional traders, assigned to provide liquidity that typically account for approximately 25% of all trades on the buy or sell side. Please visit http://www.cnsx.ca/ for more information.

Patrick Smyth, CEO of UnionTown Energy Inc., commented, "Our foremost goal is to be listed on a major exchange, providing our shareholders with a better trading platform than they have now. We have a ten percent working interest in the New Miami Prospect, and concurrently, management is looking at potential acquisitions within Canada and the USA."

The Company also notes there has been a delay on the share acquisition by the European Company as the auditor valuations are taking longer than expected. Subject to final approval and audit, an overview of the structure of the company and its ownership of assets may be found on the homepage at www.uniontownenergy.com

The Company also expects to have an update on the progress being made at the New Miami Prospect within the next seven to ten days. The Company also notes that the United States Securities and Exchange Commission permits oil and gas companies, in their filings, to disclose only proved reserves that a company has demonstrated by actual production or conclusive formation tests to be economically and legally producible under existing economic and operating conditions. Therefore, the Company is not able to accurately provide data on the amount of oil being produced from the new pump at this time given the lack of long term data available.
