ENMAX corrects wrong Canadian Press report: Ember Resources has not increased its bid for Cordero Energy



    CALGARY, June 25 /CNW/ - A Canadian Press report issued on June 25th
stated that:

    "Cordero .... received yet another sweetened takeover offer from Ember
    Resources Inc. yesterday, moments after it said its board would endorse
    ENMAX Corp.'s friendly bid. "

    This is wrong.
    Ember's June 25th news release contained nothing "sweetened". It appears
to be simply a binding confirmation of a proposal that it had made in a news
release back on June 19th. The only change was the shortening of their
deadline by one day.
    Cordero's board gave very full and careful consideration of Ember's
June 19th proposal before issuing their own June 25th news release, re-stating
their recommendation that:

    "the ENMAX offer is in the best interests of shareholders of Cordero and
    that shareholders of Cordero should accept the ENMAX offer and tender
    their shares thereto"

    There is nothing "sweetened" from Ember and the Cordero board
recommendation was based on Ember's most recent offer.
