("LGX" or the "Company") (TSXV: OIL) is pleased to announce it has closed its previously announced bought deal financing ("Financing"). Pursuant to the Financing, LGX issued a total of 49.5 million Subscription Receipts at a price of $0.86 each and 4.81 million common shares issued on a flow-through basis at a price of $1.04 each, for gross proceeds of $47,572,400. The Financing was co-led by FirstEnergy Capital Corp. and Raymond James Ltd. and included a syndicate of underwriters consisting of GMP Securities L.P., Macquarie Capital Markets Canada Ltd., National Bank Financial Inc., Scotia Capital Inc. and BMO Capital Markets Inc. The net proceeds of the Financing will be used to fund the cash purchase price payable by LGX pursuant to the previously announced acquisition of assets in the Manyberries area of Alberta (the "Acquisition") and for general corporate purposes. The gross proceeds from sale of the Subscription Receipts will be held in escrow pending the receipt by the escrow agent and the underwriters of notice from LGX that all conditions precedent to the completion of the Acquisition have been satisfied or waived. If such notice is received on or before December 31, 2012, the proceeds will be released to LGX to fund the Acquisition and each Subscription Receipt will be exchanged for one common share of LGX for no additional consideration. If the Acquisition is not completed on or before December 31, 2012, holders of Subscription Receipts will receive a cash payment equal to the offering price of the Subscription Receipts and any interest that was earned thereon during the time of escrow. Legacy Oil + Gas Inc. ("Legacy") currently holds 10 million common shares of LGX, representing approximately 33 percent of the outstanding common shares prior to the Financing. Legacy purchased 6 million Subscription Receipts under the Financing. If the Acquisition is completed, Legacy will hold 16 million common shares, representing approximately 18 percent of the outstanding common shares of LGX. Legacy has filed on SEDAR an early warning report respecting its acquisition of Subscription Receipts pursuant to the Financing, a copy of which will be available for viewing under LGX's profile on SEDAR or may be obtained by contacting LGX as set out below.
