TORONTO, Aug. 31, 2012 /CNW/ - YANGAROO Inc. ("YANGAROO") (TSX-V: YOO, OTC: YOOIF), the industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, announces that as a result of and in accordance with the technical requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") with respect to the time limitations imposed on private placements, the first phase ("Phase 1") of YANGAROO's Private Placement has closed, raising an aggregate gross proceeds just under $344,000, in respect of which 6,875,652 units ("Units") were subscribed for at a price of $0.05 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one warrant, entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share of YANGAROO at $0.10 and expiring on August 31, 2015.

YANGAROO anticipates closing Phase 2 on or about September 30, 2012, in accordance with its previous update. Phase 2 has been submitted to the Exchange for conditional approval, and is subject to the Exchange's final approval.
