Canadian Quantum Announces Completion of Private Placements and Asset Acquisition, and Appointment of New Director

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/26/14 -- Canadian Quantum Energy Corporation ("Canadian Quantum" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CQM) announced today that, further to its press releases dated April 25, 2014 and May 6, 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, the Company completed the first tranche of its previously announced private placement offering (the "Equity Private Placement") of common shares of the Company ("Common Shares"), subject to TSX Venture Exchange final approval. Pursuant to the closing of the first tranche of the Equity Private Placement, Lang purchased 11,660,000 Common Shares at a price of $0.10 per Common Share for gross proceeds of $1,166,000. An additional tranche of the Equity Private Placement, pursuant to which a third party is anticipated to purchase 1,090,000 Common Shares, is expected to occur on or about May 27, 2014.

The proceeds from the Equity Private Placement will be used for the exploration program on the Company's Alexander project and for general working capital. In addition, upon the closing of the first tranche of the Equity Private Placement, the Company repaid the previously announced short term loan from Lang in the amount of $350,000.

Concurrently with the closing of the Equity Private Placement, a subsidiary of Canadian Quantum purchased certain seismic equipment from an associate of Lang at a purchase price of 10,971,000 Common Shares, that were issued to Lang, at a deemed price of $0.10 per Common Share (the "Asset Acquisition"), subject to TSX Venture Exchange final approval.

Concurrently with the closing of the Equity Private Placement, Canadian Quantum also completed the previously announced private placement offering (the "Debenture Private Placement") of series 1 convertible secured debentures in the aggregate principal amount of $1,870,479.46 (the "Series 1 Debentures"), subject to TSX Venture Exchange final approval. Pursuant to the Debenture Private Placement, Lang purchased Series 1 Debentures in the principal amount of $935,239.73 and the holders of the previously outstanding debentures purchased Series 1 Debentures in the principal amount of $935,239.73, by settling the corresponding amount of such outstanding debentures.

The proceeds from the Debenture Private Placement will be used for general working capital and to repay the remaining portion of the principal amount and accrued interest owing on the outstanding debentures in the aggregate amount of $935,239.73 and therefore, upon the closing of the Debenture Private Placement, the outstanding debentures were fully paid and terminated.

The Series 1 Debentures are secured against the personal property of the Company and substantially all of the Company's interest in the Alexander Project, convertible at a price of $0.12 per Common Share, mature on September 30, 2015 and will bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum. The holder of a Series 1 Convertible Debenture will rank on a pari passu and equal basis with any other holder of a Series 1 Convertible Debenture, any holder of a series 2 convertible debenture that may be issued in the future and Mr. Brett with respect to the previously announced outstanding loan in the amount of $235,000.

All of the securities issued in connection with the Equity Private Placement, the Asset Acquisition and the Debenture Private Placement are subject to a hold period that expires on September 23, 2014.

Lang acquired 11,660,000 Common Shares under the Equity Private Placement, 10,971,000 under the Asset Acquisition and Series 1 Debentures in the principal amount of $935,239.73 under the Debenture Private Placement and upon completion of the private placements and the acquisition, Lang will own or control 22,631,000 Common Shares or approximately 39.49% of the total issued and outstanding Common Shares and Series 1 Debentures in the principal amount of $935,239.73. Assuming the conversion of such Series 1 Debentures, Lang would own or control 30,424,664 Common Shares or approximately 46.74% of the total issued and outstanding Common Shares. The purchase of the securities by Lang was made for investment purposes. Lang may increase or decrease its investment in Canadian Quantum depending on market conditions or any other relevant factors.

Following the closing of the above noted transactions, and pursuant to the terms of the Investment Agreement, Mr. Stephen Buscher, as the nominee of Lang, was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Company.

Mr. Buscher originally worked in banking, with an emphasis on Russian oil and gas, where he worked for over twenty years as the co-head of the Moscow office for Lazard Freres and Merrill Lynch. He also founded and co-managed Eurasia Capital Partners, a private M&A advisory boutique with offices in Moscow and London. Since leaving banking, Stephen has acted as the CFO of the Russian independent oil company Urals Energy, which he successfully listed on the London AIM in 2005, the CFO of Terralliance, a global exploration company privately owned by Kleiner Perkins and Goldman Sachs, and CEO of Navitas Petroleum, the exploration subsidiary of RussNeft, a Russian oil major owned by M. Gutseriev, Sistema and Glencore. He is currently the CFO of Story First Ltd., a diversified media investment holding venture, and a member of the Board of Directors of Urals Energy.
