Synstream Energy Corp. Announces Changes to Management; Intention to Review Business Development Option

Calgary, Alberta (FSCwire) - Synstream Energy Corp. (“Synstream” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SHM), announced today that, after the resignation of Shane Ferster as CEO and a director of the Company,  David E.T. Pinkman has been appointed to act as interim CEO until a shareholders’ meeting can be held in due course. Mr. Pinkman has served as the chief executive officer of the Company in previous years.  In addition, the Board of Directors have elected Mr. Sandy Louttit as a director to fill the position vacated by Mr. Ferster.  Mr. Loutitt is the President of Builder’s Capital Mortgage Corp.  He received his B.A. (Economics) from the University of British Columbia. Actively involved in all aspects of construction and financing for over 15 years, Mr. Loutitt is a member of the Alberta Mortgage Brokers Association (“AMBA”) and a licensed mortgage agent with the Real Estate Council of Alberta.  He has served on the boards of several public companies in the finance and resource industries.

In the wake of these changes, the Board of Directors of the Company has commenced a strategic review aimed at assessing proposals for opportunities submitted by various stakeholders. These proposals include a review of the Company’s efforts to complete its development as a significant participant in the New Age mid-stream, gas-to-liquids industry. They also entail the consideration of a move to other industrial ventures which might offer meaningful opportunities in the current Alberta business environment. In particular, the Board of Synstream has had discussions with those stakeholders aimed at considering a number of opportunities they have uncovered in the expanding medicinal cannabis cultivation and production industry.  These opportunities require extensive due diligence and to this end the Company will explore the merits of the proposal with its professional advisors.

JANUARY 16, 2017 – Calgary, AB: SynStream Energy Corp. (“SynStream” or the “Corporation”) (TSXV:SHM), announced today that, further to the announcement of its intention to complete a private placement of up to 6,000,000 flow-through common shares (the "Offering"), and after consultation with Emerging Equities Inc. of Calgary, AB (the “Agent”), it has determined to amend the terms of the Agent’s service agreement by extending the period for the sale and completion of the best efforts Offering until March 31, 2017. The flow-through common shares (the “Shares”) will be issued pursuant to "Canadian Renewable and Conservation Expenses" provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and regulations thereunder (the "Act") at a price of $0.25 per flow-through share for gross proceeds of up to $1,500,000.

The net proceeds of the Offering will be used in the construction of a waste-heat-to-power system at the Corporation’s proposed gas-to-liquids plant near Carseland, Alberta. The Corporation intends to use the proceeds from the issuance of the Shares to incur "Canadian Renewable and Conservation Expenses" within the meaning of the Act.

The Shares issued under this Offering will be offered by way of private placement in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Ontario and such other provinces or territories of Canada as may be determined by the Corporation and, in each case, pursuant to applicable exemptions from the prospectus requirements under applicable securities laws. Securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period which will expire four months and one day from the date of closing of the Offering.

In connection with the Offering, the Agent will remain entitled to a corporate finance fee of $5,000.00 and a sales commission equal to 10% of the aggregate gross proceeds raised by the Corporation from the Offering. Additionally, the Agent will recover reasonable expenses and will be granted options to purchase that number of common shares equal to 10% of the number of flow-through and common shares sold under the Offering exercisable at $0.25 per share for a period of 18 months after the closing of the Offering.
