(“Bearclaw” or the “Company”) (NEX:BRL.H) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement for up to 1.305,000 units of the Company at a price of $0.165 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $215,325 (the “Financing”).

Bearclaw is also pleased to announce that it is undertaking a shares for debt transaction in connection with the Financing, whereby Bearclaw will satisfy an aggregate of $65,175 of the Company's outstanding debts. The Company has reached an agreement with its sole outstanding creditor, who has provided services to the Company, to extinguish a portion of the Company's outstanding debts owing to him in exchange for the issuance of common shares in the capital of the Company ("Shares"). This creditor is Scott Ross, President and Director of the Company. An aggregate of 395,000 Shares at a deemed price of $0.165 per Share are proposed to be issued to Mr. Ross, representing $65,175 in full satisfaction of the amount owing for a portion of the services rendered in his capacity as the President, and for expenses paid on behalf of the Company.
The Company determined to satisfy the indebtedness with Shares in order to preserve its cash for development of its business. Issuance of the Shares is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").
The shares for debt transaction involving the Mr. Ross will constitute a "related party transaction" under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the valuation and the minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 provided for in subsections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(e) of MI 61-101, respectively, as, respectively, the Company is not listed on a specified exchange and the Company is experiencing serious financial difficulty. The participation by Mr. Ross in the shares for debt transaction has been approved by directors of the Company who are independent in connection with such transaction. A material change report will be filed less than 21 days before the closing date of the this shares for debt transaction. The Company believes this shorter period is reasonable and necessary in the circumstances as the Company wishes to improve its financial position by reducing its liabilities as soon as possible.

Completion of the Financing is subject to a number of conditions, including, without limitation, receipt of all regulatory approvals, including approval of the NEX Exchange.
