Mart Announces $0.015 Per Common Share Dividend

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- Mart Resources, Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MMT) ("Mart" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the declaration of a quarterly dividend of $0.015 (one and one-half cents) per common share. The dividend is designated as an eligible dividend for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and will be paid on July 28, 2014 to shareholders of record at the close of business on July 18, 2014. The ex-dividend date is July 16, 2014.

Pursuant to the Company's dividend policy, the declaration of regular quarterly dividends is determined quarterly based upon Mart's cash flows, liquidity, capital expenditure budgets, earnings, financial condition and other factors as the Board of Directors may consider appropriate from time to time. In view of Mart's ongoing drilling program on the Umusadege field, additional capital required for the possible acquisition of a participating interest in a Nigerian oil mining lease, and uncertainty regarding timing of first oil through the Umugini Pipeline, Mart's Board of Directors have reduced the dividend this quarter to preserve cash to fund the capital needs of the Company's ongoing business and growth opportunities.

Share Dividend Plan and Enrollment

Mart's shareholders may receive dividend payments in the form of cash or common shares through the Company's recently adopted Share Dividend Program ("SDP"). Participation in the SDP is optional. Shareholders will continue to receive dividend payments in cash unless they chose to participate in the SDP. Shareholders wishing to participate in the SDP should contact their broker or intermediary or, in the case of registered shareholders, contact Mart's transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada or visit the Company's website at www.martersources.com to obtain the necessary enrollment forms. Enrollment is required by July 14, 2014 in order to participate in the SDP for the current dividend. Shareholders who enroll in the SDP will continue to receive shares until they terminate their enrollment as specified in the enrollment form.

The SDP provides the option for shareholders to receive dividends, as and when declared, in the form of common shares of Mart in lieu of receiving a cash dividend on the dividend payment date. Common shares issued under the SDP are issued at a five per cent discount to the prevailing market price as defined in the Company's SDP, with no broker fees or commissions. The SDP will generally be available to most shareholders and is expected to provide many shareholders with Canadian income tax treatment that is different from the income tax consequences applicable to cash dividends. Shareholders, wherever resident, are encouraged to consult their own tax or legal advisors regarding the tax consequences to them of receiving cash or share dividends.

Additional information on the SDP including the SDP Enrollment Form can be found at the Company's website at www.martresources.com or by contacting your financial institution or investment advisor. The availability of the SDP and the respective terms and conditions are subject to the discretion of Mart's management and Board of Directors.

Additional information regarding Mart is available on the Company's website at www.martresources.com and under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered.
