UnionTown Energy Inc. (UTOG) Provides Update to Shareholders

BILLINGS, MT--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - UnionTown Energy Inc. (PINKSHEETS: UTOG) is pleased to provide stakeholders with an update on its corporate restructuring.

As recently announced, UnionTown Energy has commenced negotiations and procedures to list its shares on a major European Stock Exchange with a stated goal of building up its international presence for admission into new markets and access to development capital. UnionTown intends to change its accounting procedures to meet the stringent IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) as a European reporting company. Once a final decision on the exchange of choice in Europe has been made, the new accounting shall reflect the associated reporting needs for the listing process. As such, the Company will not be filing a year-end report on the North American listed entity.

The Company has about 8000 shareholders, is committed to working in their best interests and is excited to be moving forward with these changes in creating strong value in its share valuation. And as previously announced, the Company intends to provide shares in the newly listed public entity to all of its current shareholders with each UTOG shareholder receiving shares in the newly formed European entity on a pro rata basis.

Recently, Northeast Automotive announced that they had entered into a binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with UnionTown Energy. The parties have decided not to proceed with the transaction.
