Jericho Oil Announces DTC Eligibility of its Common Shares

Company to Attend 2015 NAPE Summit in Houston

VANCOUVER, Feb. 10, 2015 /CNW/ - Jericho Oil Corporation ("Jericho" or the "Company") (TSX-V: JCO, OTCQX: JROOF), a growth-oriented oil company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and production of overlooked and undervalued oil properties in the U.S., announces that it has secured DTC Eligibility by The Depository Trust Company (DTC) for its shares on the OTCQX effective Feb. 9, 2015.

Securities approved for eligibility for electronic clearance and settlement through the DTC are considered "DTC eligible." This electronic method of clearing securities accelerates the receipt of stock and cash, streamlines the settlement process for U.S. investors and brokers and enables the stock to be traded over a much wider selection of brokerage firms by coming into compliance with their requirements.

Allen Wilson, CEO of Jericho, said, "Becoming DTC eligible greatly simplifies the process of trading and exchanging our stock in the U.S., which we expect will lead to improved liquidity of our shares."

The Company also announces that it will be exhibiting at the NAPE Summit in Houston, TX, the world's largest exploration and production (E&P) gathering. Jericho will be at booth #1551, Feb. 12-13, 2015.   

Jericho is well-capitalized with no debt and intends to continue to focus its efforts on acquiring assets with good, long-term development potential at favorable pricing due to the turbulent oil market.
