    CALGARY, June 2 /CNW/ - Stealth Ventures Ltd. (Stealth) is pleased to
announce that it has closed the brokered private placement announced May 23,
2008, through a syndicate of agents led by SMH Capital Inc. and D&D Securities
Company and including Union Securities Ltd. This private placement, originally
announced as up to $20 Million was increased to $22,272,717 and consists of
the sale of 29,696,956 Units at a subscription price of $0.75 per Unit. Each
Unit consists of one common share and one-half (1/2) of one common share
purchase warrant, with each whole warrant to entitle the holder to purchase an
additional common share at an exercise price of $0.85 until May 30, 2010,
subject to an extension in the term of the warrant until May 30, 2011 upon
Stealth receiving Tier One status on the TSX Venture Exchange or upon listing
its shares on the TSX.
    SMH Capital Inc., D&D Securities Company and the sales group received a
total of 1,781,318 broker's warrants as part of their compensation, each of
which entitles the holder to purchase one unit at a subscription price of
$0.75 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half (1/2) of
one common share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant to entitle the
holder to purchase an additional common share at an exercise price of $0.85
until May 30, 2010.
    All securities issued pursuant to this private placement, including any
securities issued in payment of commissions or finders' fees, will be subject
to a hold period in Canada until October 1, 2008.
    The proceeds from this private placement will be used, primarily, to fund
and accelerate ongoing development activities on Stealth's shale gas
properties. The development program in Alberta has shown fundamentally sound
production numbers and with rising prices for natural gas it remains Stealth's
key corporate focus for solid growth in 2008 and beyond.
    Stealth is a Calgary-based junior oil and gas company whose expertise and
focus is on "unconventional" gas reserves like CBM, shale gas and tight gas
sand reservoirs.
