CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/19/13 -- Skope Energy Inc. (the "Company") today announced that Pine Cliff Energy Ltd. ("Pine Cliff") obtained an order on January 15, 2012 (the "Meeting Order") from the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta (the "Court"): (a) accepting the filing of a plan of compromise and arrangement under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (the "CCAA") by Pine Cliff concerning, affecting and involving Skope Energy Inc. and Skope Energy International Inc. (collectively, "Skope") (the "Plan"); (b) authorizing Skope and Pine Cliff to establish one class of unsecured creditors in the Plan for the purposes of considering and voting on the Plan; (c) authorizing and directing Skope to call, hold and conduct a meeting of certain of its creditors (the "Creditors' Meeting") to consider and vote on a resolution to approve the Plan; and (d) approving the procedures to be followed with respect to the calling and conduct of the Creditors' Meeting.

The purpose of the Plan is to restructure Skope's debt and to effect a compromise of the claims of all unsecured creditors of Skope. The Plan contemplates the compromise and arrangement of the claims of all unsecured creditors by the payment of a distribution to all unsecured creditors pursuant to the provisions of the CCAA.

The Plan proposed by Pine Cliff, in addition to restructuring Skope's unsecured claims, will result in the redemption, without compensation, of all of the outstanding shares of Skope (the "Skope Shares"). Pursuant to the Plan: (i) a new class of redeemable shares (the "Redeemable Shares") of the Company will be created; (ii) the existing Skope Shares will be converted to Redeemable Shares; (iii) a new class of voting shares (the "Class A Voting Shares") of the Company will be created; and (iv) new Class A Voting Shares will be issued to Pine Cliff or its nominee for $1.00. On the date that the Plan as proposed by Pine Cliff is implemented, the existing Skope Shares will be redeemed by the Company for no consideration and all related options, warrants and other rights to acquire Skope Shares will be cancelled, without compensation.

In order to be approved, the Plan must receive the affirmative vote of a majority in number of affected creditors with voting claims, and two-thirds in value of the voting claims held by such affected creditors, in each case who vote (in person or by proxy) on the Plan at the Creditors' Meeting. The Meeting Order provides that a notice to creditors, the Plan, form of proxy and instructions to creditors (the "Meeting Materials") relating to the Creditors' Meeting will be mailed to affected creditors on or before January 18, 2013 and that the Creditors' Meeting will be held on February 15, 2013. Holders of Skope Shares are not entitled to vote at the Creditors' Meeting, except in their capacity as creditors, if applicable. The date of which the Plan will become effective, is expected to be on or about February 20, 2013.
