DualEx Files Preliminary Prospectus

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

CALGARY, Feb. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - DualEx Energy International Inc. ("DualEx" or the "Corporation") (TSX-V : DXE), is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary short form prospectus in connection with a marketed public offering of units of the Corporation ("Units") for minimum gross proceeds of $3,000,000 and maximum gross proceeds of $8,000,000 (the "Offering").  The Offering is being led on a commercially reasonable efforts basis by Beacon Securities Limited (together with PI Financial Corp. and Maison Placements Canada, the "Agents"). The Offering is being made in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario, and may also be offered for sale in other jurisdictions pursuant to applicable exemptions from registration requirements in those jurisdictions.

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Corporation ("Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (a whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof, subject to an acceleration clause, to purchase one Common Share at any time on or before the date that is two years from the closing of the Offering.

The Units, including the issue price of the Units and the exercise price of the Warrants during their term, will be priced in the context of the market.  The Offering is subject to certain conditions, including the Corporation and the Agents signing a definite agency agreement prior to the filing of a final prospectus.

In addition, the Corporation has granted the Agents an over-allotment option to place additional Units on the same terms, equal to up to 15% of the number of Units sold by the Corporation to cover over-allotments and for market stabilization purposes, exercisable at any time up to 15 days after the closing of the Offering.

The Corporation intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for the acquisition and processing of 3D seismic on the Bouhajla Permit in Tunisia, the testing of the BHN-1 well in Tunisia and general working capital purposes.  If the maximum gross proceeds are raised under the Offering, the net proceeds will also be used to drill second well on the Bouhajla Permit.

Closing of the Offering is subject to certain conditions, including final due diligence and regulatory approval, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

A preliminary prospectus containing important information relating to the Offering has been filed with the securities commissions or similar authorities in certain jurisdictions of Canada.  The preliminary prospectus is still subject to completion or amendment.
