Carmen Energy Inc. Announces Asset Sale Transaction, Filing of Reserves Information and Proposed Name Change

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 -- Carmen Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CEI) ("Carmen" or the "Corporation") announces that it has entered into a purchase and sale agreement ("PSA") to sell the Corporation's 60% non-operated working interest in certain oil and gas assets (the "Assets") in the Viking-Kinsella area of Alberta, namely the Corporation's 16-17-049-12 W4 well.

The PSA has been entered into with two companies, both of which are considerate "related parties" to the Corporation under applicable securities laws. R & D Asset Management Ltd. and Red Mountain Resources Ltd. are owned or controlled by Mr. Tyler Rice, the Corporation's President and by Mr. Randy Harrison, a director of the Corporation, respectively. As the sale will constitute a "related party transaction" under applicable securities laws, the Corporation intends to call an annual and special meeting of the Corporation's shareholders prior to February 28, 2013 to approve the sale of the Assets.

The Corporation has been searching for a purchaser for these Assets for several months, with the aim of selling these Assets to reduce Carmen's working capital deficiency (unaudited at June 30, 2012 of approximately $140,000), outstanding notes payable (unaudited at June 30, 2012 of approximately $350,000) and other obligations (consisting primarily of unaudited asset retirement obligations of approximately $98,000). The independent board members of the Corporation have approved the PSA after the Corporation unsuccessfully canvassed a number of parties to find a purchaser for the Assets.

The purchase price for the Assets of $678,600 was agreed to by the parties based on the net present value of proved and probable reserves, as calculated in the independent reserve report prepared for the Corporation for the year ended September 30, 2012, and will be adjusted for actual production to the effective date of January 1, 2013. The purchase price will be comprised of cash, forgiveness of the notes payable held by each of the Purchasers, assumption of the remaining note payable owing by the Corporation by the Purchasers and termination of all Gross Overriding Royalties ("GORRs") held by the Purchasers as well terminating the balance of the GORRs associated with the note payable on the remaining lands held by the Corporation.

Archie Nesbitt, an independent member of the Board of Directors (the "Board") stated that, "the execution of the PSA is crucial to rectifying the Corporation's working capital deficiency as well as to ensure the viability of the Corporation as we rebrand and rebuild after the drilling of three dry wells".

Completion of the asset sale transaction will be conditional upon receipt of approval from the transaction from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") as well as approval of the Corporation's shareholders.

The Corporation is also pleased to announce that it has filed its reports under section 2.1 of National Instrument 51-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Oil & Gas Activities for the year ending September 30, 2012, on the Corporation's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

The Corporation also announces that the Board has approved a resolution to change the Corporations' name to "Margaux Resources Ltd.", subject to Exchange and shareholder approval at the forthcoming Annual Special Meeting of the Corporation.

Additionally, the Corporation is pleased to announce the appointment of Randy Harrison as a member of the Corporation's audit committee, effective immediately.

About Carmen Energy Inc.: Carmen is based in Calgary, Alberta and a publicly traded oil and gas exploration and production company. The focus is on exploration and development of Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin based oil and gas properties. The current projects are the Jumpbush properties in south eastern Alberta.

17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.
