January 7, 2013, Vancouver, BC - Petrostar Petroleum Corp. (TSX-Venture: PEP; "Petrostar" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed a financing term sheet for a Reserve Equity Line of Credit for $25,000,000. The finance partners, and specific terms of the financing arrangements, will be disclosed upon the execution of the definitive agreement.
R.M. Loree, Petrostar's CEO:
"For those who are not familiar with a Reserve Equity Line of Credit arrangement, it is a valuable instrument of finance that is not limiting to the Company if used appropriately. The Company has the option to draw down on a selected capital pool as it sees fit, or as capital is required. The draw down is made by issuing a select amount of shares for fair market value, less a fee. The shares are subject to a four-month hold period.
This gives the Company the control to minimize dilution and finance projects on an ongoing basis, while taking advantage of an increasing share price. This instrument will be effective for Petrostar due to the Company's low overhead and minimal operating expenses.
We are committed to minimizing overall dilution and maximizing the long term value of Petrostar Petroleum Corp. Proceeds will be used for the development and obligations of the Modular Refining properties and assets."
Petrostar anticipates the definitive agreement to be signed within the next 14 days, and will then be subject to TSX exchange approval.
