Pershimco Announces a Settlement With Respect to the Statements of Offence Issued by the AMF in 2012

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 02/10/14 -- Pershimco Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Pershimco") (TSX VENTURE: PRO)(FRANKFURT: BIZ) wishes to inform its shareholders that after having vigorously contested the 41 statements of offense issued against the Company and its Chairman, the Autorite des marches financiers (the "AMF") has accepted a conditional stay of proceedings against Mr. Roger Bureau for 95% of the statements of offense issued against him and 66.6% of those issued against the Company.

The global and definitive settlement relating to events which occurred over 7 years ago in December 2006, can be summarized as follows : (i) Mr. Roger Bureau accepts to plead guilty to an amended statement of offense stating he assisted the Company in concluding various private placements without a prospectus in December 2006, the payable fine for this statement of offense being set at $30,000; and (ii) Pershimco accepts to plead guilty to seven specific statements of offense of individual private placements concluded in December 2006, with a fine of $7,500 each, in addition to fees of $2,500, for a total of $55,000.

The Company and Mr. Bureau have accepted to settle the file with its shareholders' best interests in mind. Initial fines amounting to $512,500 have been reduced to $85,000.

Since the issuance of the AMF's allegations, Pershimco has changed its governance practices in order to avoid future observations by the AMF. It is to be noted that Pershimco has been ranked 30th amongst over 1,290 listed junior resource companies on the TSX Venture Exchange by the firm PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and has concluded private placements for over 65 million dollars since 2007.
