Mountainview Energy Ltd announces filing of annual financial statements and MD&A

CUT BANK, MT, May 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Mountainview Energy Ltd. (TSXV: MVW) ("Mountainview" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed its audited annual consolidated financial statements ("Financial Statements") and related management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012.

As previously announced, the filing of Financial Statements and MD&A was delayed. The initial reason for the delay was principally due to the fact that Mountainview was preparing the materials for the first time in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Mountainview applied for and received a management cease trade order (the "MCTO") from the Alberta Securities Commission and the British Columbia Securities Commission in accordance with National Policy 12-203, which has prevented Mountainview's President & Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Montalban, as well as its Chief Financial Officer, Angelique Hatch, and the directors of Mountainview from trading the Company's securities while the Company remains in filing default, but enabled all other investors to continue trading the Company's securities.

After receiving the MCTO, it became apparent that the appropriate accounting principles under which Mountainview was required to prepare the Financial Statements and MD&A was International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").  Accordingly, the Company has prepared the Financial Statements and MD&A in accordance with IFRS, which has caused an additional delay.  Pursuant to the terms of the MCTO, it is expected that the MCTO will be lifted in two full business days.
