At year end 2013 the Company's exit production was 1040 boe per day with an additional 200 boe per day going through remediation and work overs. The Company continues to build on the financial foundation as summarized above and reported in its audited year-end financial statements and corresponding MD&A, utilizing stable low decline production and substantial infrastructure as the building blocks for growth in Canada.

Quattro, upon completion of its evaluation in accordance with IFRS, chose to continue to maintain a conservative course of action whereby to date only the IFRS compliant reserves evaluation has been reported on the balance sheet as of the acquisition closed November 5th, 2013. Minimal value was applied to the acquired facilities and infrastructure, resulting in the Company's total asset value at year end being $48,641,000, with $6,754,000 being current assets, $39,714,000 being PN&G assets and the balance being $2,173,000 in exploration and evaluation assets.

At year-end 2013 Quattro is the owner and operator of the numerous facilities and infrastructure. Its 8 operated facilities have the capacity to process 16 mmcf per day of gas and 60,000 bbls per day of oil and fluids. It also has acquired more than 300 kilometers of pipelines and gathering systems, with an estimated replacement cost of greater than $80,000,000. Since January 1st of 2013, the facilities were monitored by Quattro, but only recently been directly under the supervision of Quattro employees as at November 5th, 2013. During the past 6 months the facilities continue to provide strong results and will be evaluated as deemed necessary to be recognized in terms of their market value in accordance with IFRS.

"The combination of our financial position, our significant infrastructure and our current efforts over the past year continues to provide Quattro ample running room for organic growth." said Leonard Van Betuw, President and CEO. "Our team, both in the office and field are energized and focused on growth, with the Company continuing towards the production goal of 2,500 boe per day, utilizing a measured and coordinated approach."

The Company as of year-end 2013, included 10 (net) drilling locations in Canada, of which one is classified as exploratory in its budget. Quattro anticipates that upon the completion of its geophysical and geological studies by year end 2014, within Quattro's material land base of more than 218,000 (net) acres in Canada, it anticipates adding a further 95 development locations and 4 exploratory locations to its inventory, by the end of the second quarter.

"Quattro looks forward to exploiting the efforts of the past 3 years, for many years to come and anticipates that its expanded foundation will be the basis for further growth and diversification." added team leaders, Daniel Lucero and Brent McGillivray.

The Company anticipates that during the following weeks it will be updating its plans to include a drilling program with a minimum of 8 (net) development wells and 1 (net) exploratory well to be drilled in the following 6-8 months in addition to its ongoing remediation and consolidation efforts.

It is through these efforts that the Company anticipates it will have expanded its foundation to the material degree planned, prior to the ramp up of its operations in Central and South America, continuing to focus on adding diversified and sustainable value for its shareholders.

BOE presentation:

Barrel ("bbl") of oil equivalent ("boe") amounts may be misleading particularly if used in isolation. All boe conversions in this report are calculated using a conversion of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one equivalent barrel of oil (6 mcf=1 bbl) and is based on an energy conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the well head.
