Waldron Energy Corporation Announces TSX Delisting Review Decision

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Aug. 5, 2015) - Waldron Energy Corporation ("Waldron" or the "Corporation") (TSX:WDN) announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") has determined to delist the Corporation's common shares effective at the close of market on September 4, 2015 for failure by the Corporation to meet the continued listing requirements of the TSX. The Corporation originally announced on April 8, 2015 that it had received notice that the TSX was reviewing the eligibility of the securities of the Corporation for continued listing on the TSX pursuant to Part VII of the TSX Company Manual.

As previously announced on December 2, 2014, the Corporation has engaged Cormark Securities Inc. as financial advisor in order to pursue the sale of a material portion of the assets of the Corporation, either in one transaction or in a combination of transactions; a merger or other business combination; the outright sale of the Corporation; or some combination thereof (the "Disposition Process"). As the Corporation continues to evaluate proposals and opportunities with interested parties, this ongoing Disposition Process may have a positive impact on the Corporation's ability to demonstrate compliance with the continued listing requirements of TSX before the Corporation's shares are delisted from the TSX at the close of market on September 4, 2015.

The Corporation intends to work diligently to demonstrate that it satisfies the continued listing requirements of TSX during the specified period. However, there is no certainty that the Corporation will be able to do so in the specified period. In which case, the Corporation's shares will be delisted from TSX at the close of market on September 4, 2015. The Corporation is also investigating the Corporation's qualifications to list its common shares on other public exchanges.
