Pricing of $300 Million Senior Notes

1 July 2014

Ithaca Energy Inc. (TSX: IAE, LSE AIM: IAE) ("Ithaca" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has priced its offering of $300 million aggregate principal amount of 8.125% senior unsecured notes due 2019 at par (the "Notes").

Interest will be payable semi-annually. The offering is expected to complete on or about
3 July 2014, subject to customary conditions precedent for similar transactions. The Notes, the net proceeds of which will be used to partially repay (without cancelling) the Company's senior secured reserves based lending ("RBL") facility, will be senior obligations of the Company and will rank pari passu with all present and future senior unsecured indebtedness of the Company. Following the Notes offering, the Company intends to draw amounts under the RBL facility to finance the recently announced acquisition of Summit Petroleum Limited, which is expected to close, subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions, during the third quarter of 2014. The guarantees of the Notes by certain subsidiaries of the Company will be subordinated to the obligations of the guarantors under the Company's RBL facility and corporate facility.

- ENDS -

The Notes and the guarantees thereof have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or applicable state securities laws. Accordingly, the Notes will be offered only to qualified institutional buyers and to persons outside the United States in reliance on Rule 144A and Regulation S under the Securities Act, respectively. Unless so registered, the Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in the United States or in any jurisdiction in which, or to any persons to whom, such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any jurisdiction.

In member states of the EEA, this announcement and any offer of securities if made subsequently is directed only at persons who are "qualified investors" within the meaning of Article 2(1)(e) of the Prospectus Directive ("Qualified Investors"). Any person in the EEA who acquires securities in any offer of securities (an "investor") or to whom any offer of securities is made will be deemed to have represented and agreed that it is a Qualified Investor. Any investor will also be deemed to have represented and agreed that any securities acquired by it in the offer have not been acquired on behalf of persons in the EEA other than Qualified Investors or persons in the UK and other Member States (where equivalent legislation exists) for whom the investor has authority to make decisions on a wholly discretionary basis, nor have the securities been acquired with a view to their offer or resale in the EEA to persons where this would result in a requirement for publication by the Company of a prospectus pursuant to Article 3 of the Prospectus Directive. The Company and others will rely upon the truth and accuracy of the foregoing representations and agreements.

This communication is being distributed only to, and is directed at (i) persons who are outside the United Kingdom or (ii) persons in the UK falling within the definition of investment professionals (as defined in Article 19(5) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005 (the "Order") or (iii) the high net worth entities, and other persons to whom it may lawfully be communicated, falling within Article 49(2)(a) to (d) of the Order (all such persons together being referred to as "relevant persons"). The securities to which this announcement relates are only available to, and any invitation, offer or agreement to subscribe, purchase or otherwise acquire such securities will be available only to or will be engaged in only with, relevant persons. Any person who is not a relevant person should not act or rely on this communication or any of its contents. This announcement is directed only at relevant persons and must not be acted on or relied on by persons who are not relevant persons.
