VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- December 18, 2013

Simba Energy Inc. (TSXV: SMB, Frankfurt: GDA, OTCQX: SMBZF) (“Simba” or the
“Company”) announces that it has terminated negotiations with Ajax Exploration
Ltd. (“Ajax”) of a definitive farmout agreement in respect of a farmout of a
66% interest and operatorship of the Company’s 100% owned Block 2A, onshore
Kenya. The parties originally executed a memorandum of understanding (as
disclosed in the Company’s news release of May 13, 2013) which contemplated
that Ajax would carry out additional exploration and drill one exploration
well. The parties subsequently attempted to complete negotiations for a
definitive farmout agreement but were unable to come to agreement on an
acceptable program. Accordingly, both parties have mutually decided to
terminate negotiations.

The Company further advises it is currently in advanced negotiations with
another party regarding a potential farm-in on two of the assets in the Simba
portfolio and anticipates an announcement in the near future.

Simba also announces that, subject to regulatory approval, certain creditors
of the Company have agreed to accept an aggregate of 1,887,493 common shares
of Simba having a deemed value of $0.06 per share in settlement of debt owed
by Simba for past services provided by such creditors.
