BANKERS PETROLEUM LIMITED: Implementation of Employee Stock Savings Plan
January 16, 2013 
AIM: BNK 
Bankers Petroleum Ltd. ("Bankers" or the "Company") 
Implementation of Employee Stock Savings Plan 
The Company announces that it has implemented an Employee Stock Savings Plan
("ESSP"), whereby employees may use a proportion of their salary (matched
equally by the Company) to purchase Bankers Petroleum shares on the Toronto
Stock Exchange, on each pay period (mid-month and month-end). 
The purpose of this plan is to further align the interests of employees of the
Company with generating shareholder value. Participation in the plan is
voluntary. The ESSP will be independently managed. 
An employee can change or cancel their contribution level under the ESSP twice
per calendar year through notification to the Company by the 5th day of January
and July of each calendar year. Applicable Employees (as defined by the AIM
Rules for Companies) will be prohibited from joining the ESSP and from changing
or cancelling their contribution in any Close Period (as defined by the AIM
Rules for Companies). 
The Company's management team including Abby Badwi (CEO), Douglas Urch (CFO),
Suneel Gupta (COO), have elected to participate in the plan.
