Strata-X Announces Completion of Consolidation and Closing of First Tranche of Financing

DENVER, BRISBANE, Australia and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STRATA-X ENERGY LTD - The directors and management of Strata-X Energy Ltd. (“Strata-X” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:SXE) (ASX:SXA) announce that the consolidation of the common shares of the Company (the "Shares") on the basis of three (3) post-consolidated Shares for every five (5) pre-consolidated Shares (the "Consolidation") has been completed.

The Consolidation was completed in order to ensure compliance with TSX Venture Exchange capital raising requirements to undertake a private placement to sophisticated investors of 27.1 million CDIs at A$0.05 per CDI for gross proceeds of A$1,355,000 (the "Placement").  Each CDI will represent one common share of Strata-X and will rank equally with existing CDIs. All CDIs issued pursuant to the Placement are to be tradeable and listed on the Australian Securities Exchange.   

The Company's common shares will continue to be traded on the TSX Venture Exchange on a post-Consolidation basis and under a new CUSIP number – 86271T305 / ISIN number – CA86271T3055.

The Company’s common shares are scheduled to begin trading on a post-Consolidation basis on the TSX Venture Exchange at market open on July 16, 2018. A letter of transmittal will be mailed to all registered shareholders with instructions on how to exchange existing share certificate(s) for new share certificate(s). Additional copies of the letter of transmittal can be obtained through Computershare Investor Services Inc. Until surrendered, each certificate formerly representing common shares of the Company will be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of common shares to which the holder thereof is entitled as a result of the Consolidation.

No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation.  Shareholders who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fraction of a common share will be rounded to the nearest whole number of common shares and no cash consideration will be paid in respect of fractional shares.

The exercise price and number of common shares of the Company issuable upon the exercise of any outstanding stock options, warrants or other convertible securities will be proportionately adjusted to reflect the Consolidation.

The Company does not intend to change its name or seek a new stock trading symbol from the TSX Venture Exchange or the Australian Securities Exchange in connection with the Consolidation.

The Company also announces that it has closed the first tranche of the Placement concurrent with the Consolidation. The first tranche of the financing consisted of 10,900,000 CDIs to raise A$545,000 at a price of A$0.05 per CDI.

Directors, and others, have committed to subscribing for A$810,000 in a subsequent and final tranche of the Placement, subject to shareholder approval. The aggregate gross proceeds from both placements will be A$1,355,000. 

The Company has paid finder’s fees in the amount of A$18,000 and 210,000 common shares. The Placement is subject to exchange (TSX-V) acceptance. All of the securities issued pursuant to this offering will have a hold period in Canada expiring on November 17, 2018. The Company will use the Placement proceeds on an initial appraisal program of Strata-X’s 100% owned, 680,000 acre Serowe CSG Project in the Republic of Botswana, which is expected to commence in the 4th quarter 2018, along with final payments to complete a transaction to acquire 100% of the Project. Proceeds will also be used for general working capital.
