TSX VENTURE SYMBOL: MVN PINKSHEETS SYMBOL: MDLNF JUNE 4, 2014 Madalena Announces Re-Pricing of Bought Deal Offering CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 4, 2014) - NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE U.S. Madalena Energy Inc. ("Madalena" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MVN)(PINKSHEETS:MDLNF) announces that it has re-priced its previously announced subscription receipt ("Subscription Receipts") offering. Pursuant to the amended agreement, the Company will issue 98,100,000 Subscription Receipts, on a bought deal basis, at a price of $0.51 per Common Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $50,031,000 (the "Offering"). Madalena has also granted the underwriters under the Offering an option (the "Over-Allotment Option") to purchase up to an additional 14,715,000 Subscription Receipts at a price of $0.51 per Common Share to cover over-allotments, if any, for additional gross proceeds of up to approximately $7,504,650. The Over-Allotment Option is exercisable in whole or in part at any time up to the date that is 30 days following the closing of the Offering. As previously announced, the Company will use the net proceeds from the Offering to fund the remaining cash component for the acquisition (the "Acquisition") of the Argentinean business units of Gran Tierra Energy Inc. ("Gran Tierra"). The purchase price for the Acquisition is US$63 million, payable in US$49 million cash and US$14 million in common shares of Madalena ("Common Shares"). Pursuant to the definitive agreements underlying that Acquisition, Madalena must pay the share consideration amount at the same deemed issue price as the Offering; accordingly, Madalena will issue 29,831,537 Common Shares for the share consideration amount for the Acquisition. The Subscription Receipts will be offered by way of a short-form prospectus to be filed in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia pursuant to National Instrument 44-101 - Short Form Prospectus Distributions. Madalena will apply to list the Subscription Receipts and the Common Shares thereunder on the TSX Venture Exchange. The gross proceeds from the Offering will be held in escrow pending the satisfaction of all conditions to the completion of the Acquisition (other than funding), provided that the closing date of the Acquisition is on or before July 31, 2014, upon which time each Subscription Receipt will entitle the holder to receive a Common Share, without further payment or action on the part of the holder, upon the closing of the Acquisition. If the Acquisition is not completed on or before July 31, 2014 or it is terminated at an earlier time, then the purchase price for the Subscription Receipts will be returned to subscribers, together with a pro rata portion of interest earned on the escrowed funds. Completion of the Acquisition and the Offering are subject to certain conditions including the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about June 24, 2014 and the Acquisition is expected to close on or about June 30, 2014. Madalena estimates pro forma consolidated annual cash flow from operations of US$35 - US$45 million over the next twelve months with the Corporation having the ability, when combined with cash on hand and available credit, to execute a US$50 - US$60 million capital program over the next 12 to 18 months while maintaining a strong balance sheet. Madalena will provide additional go-forward guidance subsequent to the closing of the Acquisition and the approval of a consolidated budget by the Corporation's board of directors. Pro forma the Acquisition and the Offering and after all transaction costs, the Company estimates positive working capital of approximately US$5.0 million.

Reader Advisories Forward Looking Information The information in this news release contains certain forward-looking statements. These statements relate to future events or our future performance, in particular, but not limited to, with respect to the Acquisition, including the characteristics of the Argentinean business units being acquired and other expectations related thereto and the timing thereof, the Offering and the timing thereof and the Company's expected use of proceeds from the Offering. Statements relating to "reserves" are also deemed to be forward looking statements, as they involve the implied assessment, based on certain estimates and assumptions, that the reserves described exist in the quantities predicted or estimated and that the reserves can be profitably produced in the future. All statements other than statements of historical fact may be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as "seek", "anticipate", "plan", "continue", "estimate", "approximate", "expect", "may", "will", "project", "predict", "potential", "targeting", "intend", "could", "might", "should", "believe", "would" and similar expressions. In particular, this news release contains forward-looking statements pertaining to operational activities to be conducted by the Company. These statements involve substantial known and unknown risks and uncertainties, certain of which are beyond the Company's control, including: the impact of general economic conditions; industry conditions; changes in laws and regulations including the adoption of new environmental laws and regulations and changes in how they are interpreted and enforced; fluctuations in commodity prices and foreign exchange and interest rates; stock market volatility and market valuations; volatility in market prices for oil and natural gas; liabilities inherent in oil and natural gas operations; uncertainties associated with estimating oil and natural gas reserves; competition for, among other things, capital, acquisitions, of reserves, undeveloped lands and skilled personnel; incorrect assessments of the value of acquisitions; changes in income tax laws or changes in tax laws and incentive programs relating to the oil and gas industry; geological, technical, drilling and processing problems and other difficulties in producing petroleum reserves; and obtaining required approvals of regulatory authorities. The Company's actual results, performance or achievement could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, such forward-looking statements and, accordingly, no assurances can be given that any of the events anticipated by the forward-looking statements will transpire or occur or, if any of them do, what benefits the Company will derive from them. These statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties and may be based on assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated or implied in the forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements in this news release are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement.

Investors are encouraged to review and consider the additional risk factors set forth in the Company's Annual Information Form, which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Non-GAAP Measures This document contains the term "cash flow" and "net backs", which do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by Canadian generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and therefore may not be comparable with the calculation of similar measures by other companies. Madalena uses cash flow and net backs to analyze financial and operating performance. Madalena feels this benchmark is a key measure of profitability for Madalena. This term is commonly used in the oil and gas industry. Cash flow is not intended to represent operating profits nor should it be viewed as an alternative to cash flow provided by operating activities, net earnings or other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. Cash flows are calculated as cash flows from operating activities less changes in non-cash working capital. Information Regarding Disclosure on Reserves The reserve estimates contained herein are estimates only and there is no guarantee that the estimated reserves will be recovered. In relation to the disclosure of estimates for individual properties, companies or business units, as adjusted, such estimates may not reflect the same confidence level as estimates of reserves and future net revenue for all properties, due to the effects of aggregation. Meaning of Boe The term "boe" or barrels of oil equivalent may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of oil equivalent (6 Mcf: 1 bbl) is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Additionally, given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil, as compared to natural gas, is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6:1; utilizing a conversion ratio of 6:1 may be misleading as an indication of value. Finding and Development Costs NI 51-101 specifies how finding and development costs ("F&D costs") should be calculated if they are reported. Essentially NI 51-101 requires that the exploration and development costs incurred in the year along with the change in estimated F&D costs be aggregated and then divided by the applicable reserve additions. The calculation specifically excludes the effects of acquisitions and dispositions on both reserves and costs. Since acquisitions can have a significant impact on annual reserve replacement costs, excluding these amounts could result in an inaccurate portrayal of Madalena's cost structure. F&D costs disclosed herein are based on working interest gross reserves. The aggregate of the exploration and development costs incurred in the most recent financial year and the change during that year in estimated future development costs generally will not reflect total F&D costs related to reserve additions for that year. Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Service Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
