About Silk Energy AS

Silk Energy AS is a private Norwegian company, established specifically to secure undervalued and distressed oil assets in Kazakhstan. It recently purchased 50% of the Ustyurt license comprising 6,451 sq km in the Caspian Sea region for a consideration of $25 million. Ustyurt is less than 100 kms from the super giant Tengiz and Kashagan fields with a combined 22 billion barrels of recoverable reserves and it's in the fairway of other giant fields.

In excess of $80 million has been spent by the previous owners and the state oil company on the acquisition and interpretation of a comprehensive set of 2D seismic. Despite all of the data, only one well has been drilled in the whole contract territory in the last 40 years. It is incredibly under-explored and management has multiple targets to exploit.

The Corporation would also like to announce that intends to raise gross proceeds of $1 million through a non-brokered private placement of convertible debentures (the “Debentures”). The Debentures are convertible, at the option of the holder thereof, into common shares in the capital of the Corporation (the “Debenture Shares”) at a price of $0.05 per Debenture Share at any time prior to the date that is 24 months from date of issuance (the “Maturity Date”), subject to the automatic conversion provisions contained therein.

Interest shall accrue on the outstanding principal balance at the rate of 6% per annum commencing on the Closing Date and shall be payable on a semi-annually basis.

The Debentures shall automatically convert into Debenture Shares on the earlier of (i) the Maturity Date, (ii) the closing of the proposed acquisition of Silk or (iii) if the closing price of the outstanding common shares on any stock exchange on which such shares are listed and posted for trading is equal or greater than $0.20 for a period of twenty (20) non-consecutive trading days.

The non-brokered private placement is subject to all necessary regulatory approvals. The Debentures and, if applicable, the underlying Debenture Shares, will be subject to a four month hold period in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.

The Corporation also announces that with this Proposed Acquisition, the Corporation has terminated all negotiations and discussions with Compassion Cannabis Corp.
