Stirling purchased 3.5 million shares of Kicking Horse Energy Inc. (KCK: TSX-V) in the market on the Venture Exchange to increase its ownership to hold 11,130,000 Common Shares representing approximately 18% issued equity.

The above securities are held for investment purposes. Depending upon the circumstances, The Stirling Funds may, from time to time, acquire additional securities of Kicking Horse Energy or dispose of all or a portion of the securities previously acquired.
The Stirling Funds are value-focused investment funds based in London, UK that hold a portfolio of diversified global securities principally in asset-rich companies trading at a discount to their underlying intrinsic value.
This press release is issued pursuant to the early warning report requirements of applicable securities laws in Canada, which also require a report to be filed on SEDAR, containing additional information with respect to the foregoing matters.
