Lignol provides update on share capital and warrants

    VANCOUVER, June 23 /CNW/ - Lignol Energy Corporation (TSX-V: LEC)
("Lignol" or "the Company"), a leading technology company in the cellulosic
ethanol and biorefining sector, provided today an update on its share capital
and warrants. This update is further to the May 22, 2008 announcement of
amendments to certain outstanding warrants.
    In total, 1,187,500 common shares have been issued upon the exercise of
warrants for aggregate cash proceeds of $312,500 and a further
3,516,768 common shares have been issued upon the cashless exercise of
warrants. With the issuance of these common shares, the Company now has
outstanding a total of 46,578,159 common shares.
    Included in the total of 3,516,768 shares issued on the cashless exercise
of warrants are 143,752 common shares that correspond to 201,250 warrants that
were not included in the May 22, 2008 press release but that were also amended
to provide the warrantholder with the option to exercise their warrants on a
cashless basis. Originally, these additional warrants, exercisable up to June
16, 2008, entitled the warrantholder to acquire for $0.40 a unit consisting of
one common share and one "underlying" warrant. The "underlying" warrant
entitled the warrantholder to acquire a common share for $0.50 per share up to
June 16, 2008. Warrantholders that exercised these 201,250 warrants, including
the "underlying" warrant, on a cashless basis received an aggregate total of
0.7143 common shares per warrant. The Company has advised the TSX Venture
Exchange that senior officers of Lignol owned 89,165 of these additional
201,250 warrants.
