Trilogy Energy Corp. Announces Receipt of CRA Proposal to Reassess and Intention to Defend

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- Trilogy Energy Corp. ("Trilogy") (TSX: TET) announced today that it has received a letter from the Canada Revenue Agency ("CRA") advising Trilogy that, subject to submissions by Trilogy, it is proposing to reassess Trilogy's income tax filings related to its conversion from an income trust to a corporation (the "Conversion") in early 2010.

The proposed reassessments seek to disallow certain tax pools in the amount of $728 million. If these tax pools were to be disallowed it is expected to result in (1) taxable income for Trilogy's 2010 and 2011 taxation years of up to $65 million in the aggregate with maximum estimated taxes owing for such years of approximately $16 million and (2) a reduction of $663 million of losses which could have otherwise been carried forward into subsequent taxation years. Trilogy will review its tax filings for these taxation years to ensure all available deductions are claimed to reduce the amount of taxes owing as much as possible.

Even if the losses are ultimately disallowed, Trilogy's management expects that Trilogy would not be cash taxable in years subsequent to 2011 for the foreseeable future given the significant amount of capital expenditures that were incurred previously and that are expected to be incurred in 2014 and beyond.

In the view of Trilogy's management, the proposed reassessment with respect to the use of tax pools is part of a current overall tax audit initiative by the CRA. Trilogy's management remains of the opinion that, after careful consideration and consultation at the time of the Conversion and at this time, Trilogy's tax returns were correct as filed.

If the proposed reassessments are issued, Trilogy's management will vigorously defend Trilogy's tax filing position. Any amounts paid to the CRA in connection with the defence of such reassessments (being 50% of the cash taxes assessed to be owing, estimated to be approximately $8 million at the most, plus applicable interest) would be refunded on a successful appeal of the reassessments. If the proposed reassessments are issued and defended against, Trilogy's management currently estimates that the ultimate resolution of the matter would take between two to four years.

Trilogy's management confirms that the proposed reassessments are not expected to affect Trilogy's long term business strategy or its monthly dividend.
