VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Dec. 17, 2013) –
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.
Mr. Allen Wilson, President and CEO of Dakar Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:DKR) (“Dakar” or the “Company”) announces that the Company will not be proceeding with its proposed acquisition of Proteus Energy Corporation (“Proteus”). The Proteus acquisition and a concurrent financing through Haywood Securities Inc and Emerson Equity LLC were initially announced November 6, 2012.
Dakar’s common shares were halted on the TSX-V November 1, 2012 preceding the Company’s announcement of the Proteus Acquisition. Despite receiving conditional approval of the Proteus acquisition from the TSX-V and the best efforts of the parties, the financing required to execute Proteus’ exploration and development plan was not fully subscribed and the proposed acquisition has lapsed.
Mr. Paul Hughes, who joined Dakar’s Board of Directors in anticipation of the Proteus acquisition, has resigned from the Dakar Board of Directors to pursue other personal business interests.
Dakar’s management team continues to review potential oil and gas investment and development opportunities for the Company.
ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD
Allen Wilson, President, C.E.O. and Director
