ALANGE ENERGY ANNOUNCES THE ADOPTION OF A SHAREHOLDER RIGHTS PLAN

TORONTO, May 16 /CNW/ - Alange Energy Corp. (TSXV: ALE) announced today that its board of directors has adopted a shareholder rights plan, effective May 13, 2011.  The objective of the rights plan is to ensure, to the extent possible, that all shareholders of Alange Energy are treated equally and fairly in connection with any initiative to acquire control of the Company.

The rights plan is not intended to and will not prevent a take-over of the Company. The purpose of the rights plan is to encourage a potential bidder to make a "Permitted Bid", having terms and conditions designed to meet the objectives of the rights plan, or to negotiate the terms of an offer with the board of directors of Alange Energy. A Permitted Bid is a take-over bid that is made to all holders of voting shares of the Company (other than the bidder) for all of the voting shares held by them, by way of a take-over bid circular prepared in compliance with applicable securities laws, that remains open for acceptance by shareholders of the Company for 60 days (or such shorter period of time as may be approved by the board of directors of the Company from time to time), and that satisfies certain other conditions.

The rights plan must be confirmed by shareholders within six months of its effective date.  The listing of the rights is subject to regulatory acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

Alange Energy is not aware of any specific take-over bid for the Company that has been made or is contemplated.

A complete copy of the Rights Plan is available upon request. Shareholders wishing to receive a copy of the Rights Plan should make their request by telephone at (416) 360-7915, by email at pvolk@alangecorp.com or by mail to Alange Energy Corp., 333 Bay Street, Suite 1100, Toronto, Ontario  M5H 2R2, Attention: Mr. Peter Volk.  A copy of the Rights Plan is also filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

About Alange Energy Corp.

Alange Energy is a Canadian-based oil and gas exploration and production company, with working interests in 19 properties in five basins in Colombia. Further information can be obtained by visiting our website at www.alangeenergy.com.

This news release contains certain "forward-looking statements" and "forward-looking information" under applicable Canadian securities laws concerning the business, operations and financial performance and condition of Alange Energy. Forward-looking statements and forward-looking information include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to estimated production and reserve life of the various oil and gas projects of Alange Energy; the estimation of oil and gas reserves; the realization of oil and gas reserve estimates; the timing and amount of estimated future production; costs of production; success of exploration activities; and currency exchange rate fluctuations. Except for statements of historical fact relating to the company, certain information contained herein constitutes forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are frequently characterized by words such as "plan," "expect," "project," "intend," "believe," "anticipate", "estimate" and other similar words, or statements that certain events or conditions "may" or "will" occur. Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management at the date the statements are made, and are based on a number of assumptions and subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Many of these assumptions are based on factors and events that are not within the control of Alange Energy and there is no assurance they will prove to be correct. Factors that could cause actual results to vary materially from results anticipated by such forward-looking statements include changes in market conditions, risks relating to international operations, fluctuating oil and gas prices and currency exchange rates, changes in project parameters, the possibility of project cost overruns or unanticipated costs and expenses, labour disputes and other risks of the oil and gas industry, failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated. Although Alange Energy has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Alange Energy undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements if circumstances or management's estimates or opinions should change except as required by applicable securities laws. The reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

Statements concerning oil and gas reserve estimates may also be deemed to constitute forward-looking statements to the extent they involve estimates of the oil and gas that will be encountered if the property is developed. Boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf:1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Estimated values of future net revenue disclosed do not represent fair market value.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this news release.
