TORONTO, April 26 /CNW/ - Mercari Acquisition Corp. ("Mercari") (TSXV: MV.P) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter of intent dated April 25, 2011 with Mogul Ventures Corp. ("Mogul") and the principals thereof, Jamiyansuren Jadamba, Steven Khan and John Carlesso, to complete a going public transaction for Mogul (the "Proposed Transaction") by way of a reverse takeover of Mercari, a capital pool company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). The Proposed Transaction will be conducted by way of share exchange, amalgamation, or similar form of transaction.

Mogul is a Toronto-based mineral exploration company that owns 100% of the mineral concession rights to the 34,267 hectare Khar Tolgoi (Black Hills, formerly Ovdog Khudag) coal deposit in Mongolia.

The coal at Khar Tolgoi outcrops at surface and previous drilling has identified coal seams up to 50m thick with an average thickness of 25.6m based on data from 19 historic Russian drill holes. The coal has heating value of 4740 kcal (5500 kcal after air-drying), contains 0.7% sulfur and ash of 9.1% to 32.9% (dry basis averaging 17.48%). Khar Tolgoi is located approximately 90 km from the rail spur at Choir on the Trans Mongolian railway. The Mongolian Ministry of Fuel, Energy Production, and Geology issued a report dated January 10, 1969, which stated that the Khar Tolgoi has been subject to approximately 3000m of exploration drilling and which included certain historical resource estimates based on the Russian classification system. David Miller, P. Geol., a qualified person in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 — Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"), has reviewed and approved the technical content of this press release.

No qualified person (as defined in NI 43-101) has done sufficient work to classify the foregoing historical estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves. Neither Mogul nor Mercari is treating the foregoing historical estimates as current mineral resources or mineral reserves (as defined in sections 1.2 and 1.3 of NI 43-101) and the historical estimates should not be relied upon. Mogul believes these historical results provide an indication of the potential of the properties and are relevant to ongoing exploration, and intends to complete additional due diligence to provide sufficient reliable information in order to complete an independent NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate by June 30, 2011.

In conjunction with the Proposed Transaction, Mogul or an affiliate thereof intends to complete a private placement (the "Private Placement") for gross proceeds of a minimum of CDN$10 million up to CDN$20 million. In addition, concurrent with the completion of the Proposed Transaction, Mercari founders will transfer, within escrow, subject to Exchange approval, an aggregate of approximately 7,000,000 common shares of Mercari to nominees of Mogul (the "Seed Share Acquisition"). The Seed Share Acquisition is expected to be completed pursuant to a share purchase agreement to be entered into between the Mercari founders and nominees of Mogul. A non-refundable deposit of $25,000 was paid by Mercari to Mogul upon the signing of the letter of intent.

Mercari, following completion of and conditional on the closing of the Proposed Transaction, will pay, subject to the approval of the Exchange, a referral or finder's fee of $50,000 to Windsor Bancorp Inc., and a finder's fee payable in warrants to Macquarie Private Wealth Inc. equal to 3% of the pre-money transaction valuation of Mogul. Each warrant will be exercisable into one common share of Mercari at an exercise price equal to the pricing in the Private Placement.

If the Proposed Transaction is completed, it is anticipated that Mercari will change its name, which name will be determined prior to the completion of the Proposed Transaction. If completed, the Proposed Transaction will constitute Mercari's Qualifying Transaction (as defined in Policy 2.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange Corporate Finance Manual). A comprehensive press release with further particulars relating to the Proposed Transaction will follow in accordance with the policies of the Exchange.

Completion of the Proposed Transaction is subject to a number of conditions including, but not limited to, completion of satisfactory due diligence, completion of the Private Placement, execution of a definitive agreement in respect of the Proposed Transaction, regulatory approvals, Exchange acceptance, the principal shareholders of Mogul entering into and complying with support agreements and, if applicable pursuant to Exchange requirements, majority of the minority shareholder approval. Where applicable, the transaction cannot close until the required shareholder approval is obtained.

Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the management information circular or filing statement to be prepared in connection with the Proposed Transaction, any information released or received with respect to the Proposed Transaction may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in securities of a capital pool company should be considered highly speculative.

The Exchange has in no way passed upon the merits of the Proposed Transaction and has neither approved nor disapproved the contents of this press release. Neither the Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities in any jurisdiction.

ANY SECURITIES REFERRED TO HEREIN WILL NOT BE REGISTERED UNDER THE U.S. SECURITIES ACT OF 1933 (THE "1933 ACT") AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES OR TO A U.S. PERSON IN THE ABSENCE OF SUCH REGISTRATION OR AN EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE 1933 ACT.
