/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSPAPER SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THE RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF U.S. SECURITIES LAW./

CALGARY, July, 23, 2014 /CNW/ - CMQ Resources Inc. ("CMQ") is pleased to announce that CMQ has completed its previously announced consolidation (the "Consolidation") of common shares in the capital of CMQ ("Common Shares").  Articles of Amendment to effect the Consolidation were filed earlier today.  Under the terms of the Consolidation, all Common Shares were consolidated on a 21,000,000 to one (1) basis and any holders of fractional pre-Consolidation Common Shares will receive CAD$0.02 in cash for each pre-Consolidation Common Share previously held.  As a result of the Consolidation, Matco Investments Ltd. ("Matco"), previously the holder of 49.79% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares, was the only CMQ shareholder to be issued a post-Consolidation Common Share and as a result has become the sole shareholder of CMQ.

The Consolidation is more fully described in the management information circular of CMQ dated June 23, 2014 and the accompanying materials (collectively, the "Meeting Materials") which may be viewed under CMQ's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

With the completion of the Consolidation, CMQ has applied to have the Common Shares delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange.

Registered Shareholders are encouraged to complete, execute and submit the Letter of Transmittal in their Meeting Materials as soon as possible in order to receive the consideration to which they are entitled to under the Consolidation.  Any questions and requests for assistance in respect of the Letter of Transmittal may be directed to Computershare Investor Services Inc. at its telephone numbers and locations set out in the Letter of Transmittal.
