CORRECTION: Petroamerica Announces the Private Placement of up to US $20 Million of Senior Secured Debentures

CALGARY, Oct. 28, 2015 /CNW/ - Petroamerica Oil Corp. (TSX-V:PTA) ("Petroamerica" or the "Company"), an oil and gas company operating in Colombia would like to correct one aspect of the press release from October 27, 2015 where it announced that it has entered into an agreement with AV Securities Inc. ("AV Securities") to sell on a reasonable commercial efforts basis, by way of private placement, units ("Units") of the Company at a price of US$10,000 per Unit to raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to US$20 million (the "Offering"). The Units will be sold in two tranches, with the first tranche of 1,000 Units, not 10,000 Units as had been previously released, but still raising US$10 million and the second tranche of 1,000 Units, again, not 10,000 Units, to close six months thereafter.  All other aspects of the press release remain the same.

The Company apologizes for this error.
