Canadian Quantum Announces Completion of Loans and Shares for Debt Transaction

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- Canadian Quantum Energy Corporation ("Canadian Quantum" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: CQM) announced today that, further to its press release dated April 25, 2014, pursuant to the investment agreement (the "Investment Agreement") with Lang International Holdings Limited, a company registered in the British Virgin Islands (""Lang"), and Douglas Brett, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, Lang has provided a short term loan (the "Lang Loan") to the Company in the amount of $350,000. The Lang Loan is evidenced by a promissory note and secured against the personal property of the Company. The Lang Loan will be repaid on the earlier of the closing of the previously announced proposed private placement offering of common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") for gross proceeds of $1,275,000 (the "Equity Private Placement"), or the deadline to file final documentation with the TSX Venture Exchange with respect to the Equity Private Placement, but in any event no later than May 30, 2014 (the "Maturity Date"), and does not bear interest prior to the Maturity Date, provided that if any amount of the Lang Loan is unpaid following the Maturity Date, it will bear interest at a rate of 12% per annum. In that regard, the parties amended the Investment Agreement to extend the deadline for the Lang Loan, the Debt Settlement and the Brett Loan (both as described below) from May 2, 2014 to May 6, 2014. The completion of the Lang Loan, the Debt Settlement and the Brett Loan is subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

As set forth in the Investment Agreement, a company controlled by Mr. Brett, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, settled the total amount of its outstanding unsecured demand loan in the amount of $226,150.12, including accrued interest, into 2,261,501 Common Shares at a price of $0.10 per Common Share (the "Debt Settlement"). The Common Shares issued in connection with the Debt Settlement are subject to a four month hold period that expires on September 7, 2014. In addition, Mr. Brett has converted the total amount of his outstanding accrued salary up to March 31, 2014, in the amount of $235,000 into a loan (the "Brett Loan"), that is evidenced by a promissory note and secured against the personal property of the Company, and upon the issuance of the previously announced series 1 debentures, will also be secured against substantially all of the Company's interest in the Alexander project. The promissory note issued to Mr. Brett is due on September 30, 2015 and bears interest at a rate of 12% per annum.

Canadian Quantum has determined that exemptions from the various requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 are available for the issuance of the promissory note and Common Shares to Mr. Brett and the company controlled by Mr. Brett (Formal Valuation - Issuer Not Listed on Specified Markets; Minority Approval - Fair Market Value Not More Than 25% of Market Capitalization).

As a company controlled by Mr. Brett, the President, Chief Executive Officer and a director of Canadian Quantum, acquired 2,261,501 Common Shares under the Debt Settlement, Mr. Brett will own or control 9,718,922 Common Shares or approximately 28.03% of the total issued and outstanding Common Shares and options to acquire 1,000,000 Common Shares. Assuming the exercise of such options, Mr. Brett would own or control 10,718,922 or approximately 30.05% of the total issued and outstanding Common Shares of Canadian Quantum. The purchase of the Common Shares by the company controlled by Mr. Brett was made for investment purposes. Mr. Brett may increase or decrease his investment in Canadian Quantum depending on market conditions or any other relevant factors.

This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
