MGM Energy Corp. Announces 2013 Financial Results and Provides Update on Independent Committee

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/12/14 -- MGM Energy Corp. ("MGM Energy" or the "Company") (TSX: MGX) announced today its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013.

The Company reported a net loss for the year ended December 31, 2013 of $8.3 million ($0.02 per share) as compared to a net loss of $8.1 million ($0.03 per share) for the year ended December 31, 2012. MGM Energy's full audited financial statements and accompanying Management's Discussion and Analysis will be filed shortly on the SEDAR website (www.sedar.com).

Further to its March 11, 2014 press release, MGM Energy also announced that a special committee of the independent members of the board of directors of the Company (the "Committee") has been established to consider the proposal (the "Proposal") received from Paramount Resources Ltd. ("Paramount"), as described in that press release. The Committee is comprised of all four independent members of the board of directors. The Committee has retained independent legal counsel to advise the Committee and is pursuing an engagement with an independent advisor to prepare an independent valuation in accordance with MI 61-101. It is anticipated that the work of the Committee will take place over the ensuing weeks. The Committee has requested that management update the data room that was available during its search for a partner in the Canol shale oil play, and to make that data room available to any party interested in pursuing an alternative transaction.

Given the consideration of the Proposal, the Company has decided to postpone its annual meeting currently scheduled for April 23, 2014 to a date to be determined.

Shareholders will be advised if and at such time that a binding arrangement agreement is reached between MGM Energy and Paramount. There can be no assurance that any binding agreement will be reached or that a transaction will be pursued or recommended by the board of directors of the Company.

MGM Energy is a Canadian oil and natural gas exploration and development company active in Northern Canada. MGM Energy's common shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "MGX".

This document contains "forward-looking statements" regarding Paramount's Proposal and the establishment of the Committee including statements regarding the Proposal and terms and conditions thereof. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Actual results and developments may differ materially from those contemplated by these statements depending on, among other things, the risk that the parties will not proceed with the transaction, that the terms of the transaction will vary materially from those proposed, and that the conditions precedent to proceeding with the transaction may not be met on a timely basis or at all, including negotiation and execution of definitive documentation. The forward-looking statements contained herein are made at the date of this document and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or revise any of the forward-looking statements contained in this document, whether as a result of new information, future event or otherwise, except as required by applicable securities laws.
