CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 1, 2011) - The Board of Directors of Vecta Energy Corporation (TSX VENTURE:VER) ("Vecta" or the "Company") today announces that it has entered into a process to review strategic alternatives for the Company in order to maximize shareholder value. The process of reviewing strategic alternatives will be overseen by a special independent committee (the "Special Committee") comprised of the independent directors of the Board.

The Special Committee will evaluate strategic alternatives which may include, but are not limited to: the sale of a material portion of the assets of the Company; the sale of the Company, either in one transaction or in a combination of transactions; a merger or other business combination with another company; or a farm-out or joint venture.

There can be no assurance that the process will result in a transaction of any form or, if a transaction is undertaken, as to its terms or timing. Vecta does not intend to make any further announcements regarding the process unless and until the Board has approved a specific transaction or other course of action or otherwise deems disclosure of developments is appropriate.

The Board of Directors is also pleased to announce that the secured loan holders have agreed to extend the maturity date of the Secured Loans to November 30, 2011 and to forego any interest charges that may accrue from August 31, 2011 to November 30, 2011 in order to arrest the growth of the accrued interest.
