Oyster Announces Engagement of Advisers for Proposed AIM Listing and Closing of Second Tranche of Private Placement

 Vancouver, British Columbia -- August 1, 2017 -- Oyster Oil and Gas Ltd. ("Oyster" or the "Company") (OY: TSXV, 13L: FSE) is pleased to announce that in connection with the Company's proposed admission of its common shares to trading on AIM, a market of the London Stock Exchange (the "AIM Listing"), the Company has appointed Beaumont Cornish Limited as financial and nominated adviser and Peterhouse Corporate Finance Limited as broker. The Company anticipates the AIM Listing to occur in the near future.

Oyster is also pleased to announce that further to the Company's press release dated July 25, 2017, the Company has issued an additional CAD$81,300 of principal amount of convertible debentures (the "Convertible Debentures"), which together with the first tranche of the Company's Convertible Debenture completes the private placement resulting in aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of CAD$1,232,215. The Convertible Debentures accrue interest at the rate of 10% per annum, are convertible at the option of the holder into common shares of the Company at a deemed price of the lesser of CAD$0.50 or a 20% discount to the AIM Listing offering price of the Company's common shares, subject to compliance with TSX Venture Exchange minimum pricing policies, and have a term of twelve months, subject to acceleration upon completion of the AIM Listing. Accrued interest on the Convertible Debentures may be converted into common shares at a minimum conversion price of not less than the "Market Price" (as defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) at the time such interest becomes due and payable. The subscriber for this additional tranche of Convertible Debentures has also been issued 40,650 detachable common share purchase warrants (each, a "Debenture Warrant"). Each Debenture Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at a price of CAD$0.55 until the expiry of the Convertible Debentures. All securities issued in connection with the Convertible Debentures are subject to a four-month-and-one-day statutory hold period.
