NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES
Toronto, Ontario, Canada, February 13, 2007 – Mega Uranium Ltd. (MGA-TSX) (“Mega”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its acquisition of Twenty-Seven Capital Corp. (“Twenty-Seven”) (TSC-TSXV), which is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mega.
Pursuant to the acquisition, Mega issued 6,785,373 common shares and 3,392,188 common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) to the former shareholders of Twenty-Seven. Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of Mega at a price of $6.00 per share until expiry on February 12, 2012. The Warrants will commence trading today on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol MGA.WT.
As a result of the acquisition, the common shares of Twenty-Seven will be de-listed from the TSX Venture Exchange.
Twenty Seven’s primary assets are its uranium and iron-oxide copper-gold (IOCG) properties in the Wernecke Mountains of the Yukon, considered to be one of the most prospective uranium areas in Canada. The company also has interests in projects located in British Columbia, the Northwest Territories and Mexico.
Mega’s President, Mr. Stewart Taylor, stated that, “This acquisition is consistent with our objectives for strategic growth – Twenty-Seven allows us to simultaneously increase the breadth of our portfolio of exploration properties and the depth of our geological expertise, which we hope to leverage for future Canadian growth.”
Mega also issued 100,000 common shares and 50,000 common share purchase warrants to Pacific International Securities Inc., which advised Mega on the transaction. Each warrant is exercisable for one common share of Mega at a price of $6.00 per share until expiry on February 12, 2012.
