DualEx Announces Pricing of Previously Announced Public Offering


CALGARY, March 13, 2013 /CNW/ - DualEx Energy International Inc. ("DualEx" or the "Corporation") (TSX-V : DXE), is pleased to announce that it has set the pricing and final terms for its previously announced marketed public offering of units of the Corporation ("Units") for minimum gross proceeds of $1,500,000 and maximum gross proceeds of $3,000,000 (the "Offering").  In connection with the Offering, the Corporation will issue and sell a minimum of 10,000,000 Units at a price of $0.15 per Unit and a maximum of 20,000,000 Units.  The Offering is being lead by Beacon Securities Limited (together with PI Financial Corp. and Maison Placements Canada, the "Agents").

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Corporation ("Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant ("Warrant").  Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. (Calgary Time) on or before the earlier of the date that is:  (a) two years from the completion of the Offering; and (b) 30 days after the giving of notice of early termination by DualEx. Such notice may be given by DualEx, in its sole discretion, if the volume-weighted average price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange exceeds the Warrant exercise price by at least 200% for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading days (whether or not trading of Common Shares occurs on all such days, provided that the Common Shares trade on at least five of such trading days). The exercise price of the Warrants will be $0.18 per Common Share.

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 15 days after the closing of the Offering.

The Corporation will use net proceeds of the Minimum Offering to record a 47 km2 of 3D seismic data on the KT Block of the Corporation's Bouhajla exploration block located onshore in the Pelagian Basin of east central Tunisia.  If the Maximum Offering is completed, the additional net proceeds will be used to test the BHN-1 well that will be drilled on the Corporation's Bouhajla exploration block and for general working capital purposes.

Closing of the Offering is subject to certain conditions, including final due diligence and regulatory approval, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

A preliminary prospectus containing important information relating to the Offering has been filed with the securities commissions or similar authorities in certain jurisdictions of Canada.  The preliminary prospectus is still subject to completion or amendment.  Copies of the preliminary prospectus may be obtained from:
