WINNIPEG, June 30 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. ("Nordic" or, the "Company"), announced
today that the previously announced brokered private placement financing (the
"Offering") with Raymond James Ltd. ("Raymond James") has been completed. The
Offering, which was extended to a pre-determined, select group of Raymond
James clients, consisted of 4,166,667 Units ("Units") at a price of $0.60 per
Unit for total gross proceeds of $2.5 million.
Each Unit consisted of one Class A common share of the Company issued as
