CALGARY, Oct. 20 /CNW/ - DualEx Energy International Inc. ("DualEx" or the "Corporation") (TSX-V : DXE), is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary short form prospectus in connection with a marketed public offering of units of the Corporation ("Units") for minimum gross proceeds of $3,000,000 and maximum gross proceeds of $7,000,000 (the "Offering"). The Offering is co-lead by Clarus Securities Inc. and Jennings Capital Inc. (together, the "Agents").
Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Corporation ("Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant").

The Units, including the exercise price of the Warrants during each of the first and second year of their term, will be priced in the context of the market.
In addition, the Corporation has granted the Agents an over-allotment option equal to 15% of the number of Units sold by the Corporation to cover over-allotments and for market stabilization purposes, exercisable at any time up to 30 days after the closing of the Offering.
The Corporation intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for the drilling, completion and tie-in of wells in Hungary, the completion and testing of the Al Tayr-101 well in Syria, and general corporate purposes. If the maximum gross proceeds are raised under the Offering, the net proceeds will also be used to acquire 3D seismic on the Bouhajla exploration block in Tunisia.
