Orca Energy Group Inc. Announces Final Results of Substantial Issuer Bid

TORTOLA, British Virgin Islands, Jan. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orca Energy Group Inc. ("Orca" or the "Company" and includes its subsidiaries and affiliates) (TSX-V: ORC.A, ORC.B) today is announcing the final results of its substantial issuer bid commenced on December 16, 2020, pursuant to which the Company offered to purchase for cancellation a number of its Class B Subordinate Voting Shares ("Class B Shares") for an aggregate purchase price not to exceed CDN$40 million at a purchase price of not less than CDN$6.50 and not more than CDN$7.50 per Class B Share (the "Offer"). The Offer expired at 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on Wednesday January 20, 2021. All dollar amounts are in Canadian dollars.

In accordance with the terms and conditions of the Offer, and based on the final information from AST Trust Company (Canada), as depositary for the Offer (the "Depositary"), Orca will take up and pay for 6,153,846 Class B Shares at a price of CDN$6.50 per Class B Share, representing an aggregate purchase price of approximately CDN$40.0 million and 25.2% of the total number of Orca's issued and outstanding Class B Shares and 23.5% of the total number of Orca's issued and outstanding shares.

An aggregate of 19,024,697 Class B Shares were validly tendered and not withdrawn pursuant to auction and purchase price tenders at the purchase price. Since the Offer was oversubscribed, shareholders who successfully tendered shares to the Offer will have the number of shares purchased by Orca prorated to approximately 32.2% of their successfully tendered shares (other than "odd lot" tenders, which are not subject to proration).

Payment and settlement of the purchased Class B Shares will be effected by the Depositary on or about January 25, 2021 in accordance with the Offer and applicable law.

After giving effect to the Offer, Orca will have 18,233,614 Class B Shares and 1,750,495 Class A Shares issued and outstanding.

The full details of the Offer are described in the offer to purchase and issuer bid circular dated December 14, 2020 as well as the related letter of transmittal and notice of guaranteed delivery, copies of which were filed and are available on Orca's SEDAR profile at
