CARMEN ENERGY INC. ANNOUNCES CLOSING OF ACQUISITION OF CERTAIN OIL AND GAS ASSETS AS QUALIFYING TRANSACTION

CALGARY, June 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Carmen Energy Inc. (TSXV: CEI.P) ("Carmen" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that further to its news releases of April 15, June 15 and June 24, 2011 the Corporation closed the acquisitions (collectively the "Transaction") of certain oil and gas assets located in the Ferrybank and Jumpbush area of Alberta (the "Assets").  The Transaction constitutes the Corporation's qualifying transaction pursuant to the applicable policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").

Pursuant to the terms of the Transaction, the Corporation acquired the Assets for approximately $612,000 in cash (subject to adjustments).  The Assets are comprised of (i) a 37.5% interest in an oil well and a 50% interest specified undeveloped lands in the Jumpbush area of Alberta; and (ii) freehold and crown leases in the Ferrybank area of Alberta.

Contemporaneous with closing of the Transaction, the Corporation completed a private placement financing (the "Private Placement") for aggregate gross proceeds of $5,000,000, which consisted of the issuance of (i) 6,000,000 units of the Corporation (the "Units") at a price of $0.25 per Unit on a non-brokered basis; and (ii) 14,000,000 Units under a brokered offering whereby Macquarie Private Wealth Inc. acted as agent (the "Brokered Offering").  Each Unit is comprised of one Common Share and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole such warrant a "Warrant").  Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.40 at any time up to 4:30 p.m. (Calgary time) on the date which is 18 months from the date hereof. The agent received  a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Brokered Offering and was granted an option to acquire 980,000 Units (the "Agent's Option"), exercisable at a price of $0.25 per Agent's Option for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Brokered Offering. The Warrants forming part of the Agent's Option shall have the same terms as the Warrants issued under the Brokered Offering and will expire 18 months from the date of the closing.

The Corporation expects that its Common Shares will commence trading under the trading symbol CEI following the Exchange's review of final documentation and the Exchange's issuance of the final bulletin approving the Transaction.
