CALGARY, April 19 /CNW/ - Avere Energy Inc. ("Avere" or the "Company") (TSX-V: AVO.H) announces that despite best efforts, the Company has been unable to raise the required funds to implement the proposed Reactivation and has chosen to cancel the private placement. The proceeds of the financing were to be used to pay for the farm-in and drilling obligations on the previously announced Haynesville shale gas prospect and to provide the Company with sufficient working capital to complete its Reactivation.

In accordance with the terms of the Letter Agreement with American Exploration Corp., a Nevada corporation (AEXP-OTCBB, "American") that agreement has been terminated. The Company will continue to actively seek an oil and gas acquisition to enable it to graduate to Tier 2 on the TSX Venture Exchange.
