AMG announces Adira Energy Corp. has engaged Sandfire Securities Inc. for a private placement of a minimum of $2 million



    VANCOUVER, May 28 /CNW/ - AMG OIL LTD. (OTCBB: AMGOF) (the "Company") is
pleased to announce that, further to the letter of intent it has signed with
Adira Energy Corp. ("Adira Energy"), a company incorporated in the province of
Ontario, holding interests in certain petroleum rights in Israel (the
"Proposed Transaction"), Adira Energy has engaged Sandfire Securities Inc.
("Sandfire") to act as lead agent in a brokered offering of a minimum of
8,000,000 units ("Units") at US$0.25 per Unit (the "Private Placement").
Completion of the Private Placement is a condition to the closing of the
Proposed Transaction.
    Each Unit shall consist of one (1) common share in Adira Energy and one
half (1/2) of one warrant, each full warrant entitling the holder to acquire
an additional common share at a price of US$0.50 per common share for a period
of 24 months from the closing of the Private Placement. The Units will be
exchanged for units in the issuer resulting upon completion of the Proposed
Transaction (the "Resulting Issuer") on a one for one basis. Warrants in the
Resulting Issuer will include an acceleration provision; if the closing price
of common shares of the Resulting Issuer for any period of 20 consecutive
trading days exceeds US$1.00 per common share (the 20th day of such trading
period, the "Acceleration Date"), their expiry date will become the date that
is 30 days after the Acceleration Date. In the event the Resulting Issuer is
listed on an exchange in Canada, the closing price for determining
acceleration and the exercise price of the warrants shall each be in Canadian
dollars based on the exchange rate as of the date of the closing of the
Proposed Transaction. Sandfire and participants in the selling group will
receive a cash commission equal to 7% of the aggregate proceeds of the issue
of Units resulting from orders introduced and confirmed to the Company and
compensation options which will entitle them to purchase additional common
shares of the Resulting Issuer equal to 7% of the aggregate number of Units
sold in the Private Placement at a price of US$0.25 per common share for the
two year period following closing. Sandfire will also receive a success fee
and compensation for certain expenses.
    Subscriptions to the Private Placement will be held in escrow by a third
party until all other conditions to the Proposed Transaction have been
fulfilled, and if such conditions are not fulfilled, subscription funds shall
be returned to each subscriber.
