SPRING, Texas, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- True North Energy Corp. ("True North") (OTC Pink: TNEN) today announced that it has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Southridge Partners II, LP, ("Southridge"), an institutional investor, outlining terms for an equity purchase agreement (EPA) in the amount of $5 million, which if funded, will create significant growth capital for True North.
Under terms of the LOI, upon execution of the EPA, and subject to certain closing conditions, True North will have the right, but not the obligation to sell, from time to time, up to $5 million of its common stock to Southridge under terms deemed favorable by management by submitting a Draw Down Notice in an amount that the company determines.
In order to Draw Down on the EPA, True North will need to have obtained effectiveness of a Form S-1 registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, a process which it plans to initiate in 2014, funding permitting.
"We are pleased to be partnering with Southridge, an institutional investor with a long, reliable history of providing capital to the small cap space. We believe this capital will be sufficient to fund our growth strategy," commented Gilbert Steedley, CEO of True North, who continued, "We believe that the terms of this agreement are favorable to our shareholders and provide True North with the best opportunity to execute its business plan and deliver long-term shareholder value. We are thankful for the confidence Southridge has shown in True North, our management, and our strategy."

We are excited to partner with True North and its seasoned management as they execute their strategy," commented Stephen Hicks, Principal and CEO of Southridge. The closing of the EPA transaction is subject to the negotiation and execution of definitive agreements.
