Challenger Announces Strategic Review and Private Placement

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- Challenger Deep Resources Corp. ("Challenger" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CDE) is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has initiated a process to review potential strategic alternatives for the Company. The focus of the review will be on non-resource opportunities with particular emphasis on the technology sector. Challenger cautions shareholders that there is no assurance that the strategic review will result in any specific strategic or financial transactions and no timetable has been set for completion. Challenger will keep shareholders updated on the strategic review process and any material developments.

Challenger also announces a non-brokered private placement to raise gross proceeds of up to $1,000,000 (the "Offering"). Pursuant to the Offering, Challenger intends to issue, pursuant to applicable exemptions from registration and prospectus requirements of Canadian and United States securities laws, up to 15,384,615 common share units (the "Units) at a price of CAD $0.065 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one Common Share and one common share purchase warrant (each a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Common Share of Challenger at an exercise price of CAD $0.10 for a period of three (3) years from the date of issuance of the Units.

Challenger may pay a finder's fee in connection with the issue and sale of any or all of the Units under this Offering. The finder's fee shall consist of a payment of no more than 8% of the gross proceeds of the Offering in relation to subscribers introduced by any particular finder, subject to compliance with applicable securities laws.

The gross proceeds from the Offering will be used for working capital purposes and to fund the Corporation's strategic review process.

The Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Pursuant to applicable securities laws, all securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four mouths following the closing of the Offering.

Challenger also announces that the previously announced (April 2, 2014) Letter of Intent ("LOI") relating to the sale of its Indonesian subsidiary PT Bestindo Energy ("Bestindo"), has been terminated because of the purchaser's inability to meet its financial obligations thereunder. In consequence and due to the general state of the Asian thermal coal prices and markets and the Corporation's cash constraints, Challenger has completed the sale of Bestindo to an officer and director of Bestindo for nominal consideration. The effective date of the share sale was April 1, 2014. Under the terms of the agreement the purchaser has agreed to pay to, or share with Challenger, for a period of two years from the effective date, one half of any and all consideration which may be received in connection with the sale or partial disposition of the shares of Bestindo or the Barito coal project which is held by Bestindo.

Challenger also announces that it intends to call a special meeting of shareholders to consider a resolution to consolidate the common shares of the corporation on a four to one basis. The timing of the special meeting of shareholders has not been determined.
