Dundee Energy Limited Announces Launch of Rights Offering

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- Dundee Energy Limited ("Dundee Energy" or the "Corporation") (TSX:DEN) announced today the terms of a rights offering to existing shareholders to raise gross proceeds of between approximately $8.0 and $9.2 million (the "Rights Offering"). The Corporation has received a notice of acceptance in respect of the Rights Offering from its principal regulator and expects to receive notices of acceptance from the remaining jurisdictions shortly.

Dundee Energy will be offering to eligible holders of its outstanding common shares (each, a "Common Share") of record as at the close of business on March 12, 2013 (the "Record Date") transferable rights (each, a "Right") to subscribe for common shares ("Rights Common Shares") or flow-through Common Shares ("FT Common Shares" and, together with the Rights Common Shares, the "Rights Shares") or a combination thereof, on the terms set forth in a rights offering circular (the "Rights Offering Circular") to be mailed by the Corporation to shareholders (and which will also be available on SEDAR).

Each registered holder of Common Shares on the Record Date will receive one Right for each Common Share held. A holder of Rights will be entitled to acquire one Rights Common Share or one Rights FT Share for every seven (7) Rights held upon payment of the applicable subscription price of: (a) $0.34, in the case of Rights Common Shares; and (b) $0.39, in the case of Rights FT Shares (the "Basic Subscription Privilege"). The Rights expire at 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on April 4, 2013, after which time unexercised Rights will be void and without value. Shareholders who exercise all their Rights under the Basic Subscription Privilege will also be entitled to acquire additional Rights Shares (to the extent additional Rights Shares are available, subject to certain limitations) pursuant to an additional subscription privilege to be provided for under the Rights Offering, the terms of which are described in the Rights Offering Circular (the "Additional Subscription Privilege").

Dundee Corporation, which owns approximately 57% of Dundee Energy, has committed to the board of directors of the Corporation to provide its aggregate subscription payments with respect to its subscriptions pursuant to the Basic Subscription Privilege and its maximum potential Additional Subscription Privilege (on the basis of subscriptions of Rights FT Shares) pursuant to the Rights Offering, amounting to approximately $9.2 million. This commitment has the same effect as a "stand-by commitment", as Dundee Corporation intends to acquire all of the Rights Shares not acquired under the Basic Subscription Privilege or the Additional Subscription Privilege by other shareholders. Dundee will not be paid a fee in consideration for exercising its rights under the Rights Offering.

The Rights will be listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") under the symbol "DEN.RT" and are expected to commence trading on March 8, 2013. The TSX has also approved the listing of the Rights Common Shares and Rights FT Shares issuable upon exercise of the Rights.

The Rights and underlying Rights Shares are not being offered to, and may not be exercised by, persons who are residents of any jurisdiction other than each of the provinces and territories of Canada. Reference is made to the section in the Rights Offering Circular entitled "Ineligible Shareholders".

Dundee Energy expects the gross proceeds of this Rights Offering to be approximately $9.2 million, assuming full participation on the basis of Rights FT Shares. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to fund an exploration program on the Corporation's southern Ontario assets and will renounce to subscribers of Rights FT Shares eligible Canadian exploration expenses ("CEE") in an amount equal to the subscription amount.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur.

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marc Jones, Vice President of Product Innovation for SoftLayer, will explain how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
Are you interested in accelerating innovation, simplifying deployments, reducing complexity, and lowering development costs? The cloud is changing the face of application development and deployment, with enterprise-grade infrastructure and platform services making it possible for you to build and rapidly scale enterprise applications. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Gene Eun, Sr. Director, Oracle Cloud at Oracle, will discuss the latest solutions and strategies for application developers and enterprise IT organizations to leverage Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) to build and deploy modern business applications in the cloud.
Hybrid cloud refers to the federation of a public and private cloud environment for the purpose of extending the elastic and flexibility of compute, storage and network capabilities, in an on-demand, pay-as-you go basis. The hybrid approach allows a business to take advantage of the scalability and cost-effectiveness that a public cloud computing environment offers without exposing mission-critical applications and data to third-party vulnerabilities. Hybrid cloud environments involve complex management challenges. First, organizations struggle to maintain control over the resources that lie outside of their managed IT scope. They also need greater infrastructure visibility to help reduce maintenance costs and ensure that their company data and resources are properly handled and secured.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise), cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. At NuoDB we're involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO of NuoDB, Inc., will cover experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
Understanding the future of Big Data is crucial in the early stages of decision making around Big Data architectures. In the enterprise, what stands out is the need to integrate Hadoop smoothly into your existing data warehouse architecture, while taking advantage of existing skills and investments. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marty Gubar, Director of Product Management at Oracle, will present a strategy for enabling integrated data management using both Hadoop and relational technologies. In particular, he'll look at how SQL, long the standard for the data warehouse, is increasingly being used on Hadoop. The real prize, though, is Smart SQL processing, seamlessly integrating the data warehouse and Hadoop into a single, Big Data Management System.
