TSX Reviews Market Capitalization Requirement

TSX Reviews Market Capitalization Requirement

CALGARY, Alberta, Oct. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Toscana Energy Income Corporation (“Toscana Energy” or the “Company”) (TSX: TEI) announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX“) has informed the Company that its common shares listing is under review with respect to Toscana Energy’s ability to meet market capitalization requirements of the TSX. Specifically, the TSX has notified the Company that it is reviewing the Company’s eligibility on the basis that the Company does not meet the $3.0 million minimum market capitalization requirement.  The Company believes that its inability to meet the minimum market capitalization requirement of the TSX is a result of continued market-related difficulties associated with the Canadian energy business.

The Company has been granted 120 days in which to regain compliance with the minimum listing requirements, pursuant to the TSX’s Remedial Review Process.  Should the Company not meet the minimum market capitalization required pursuant to the TSX listing requirements within the permitted time frame, the Company will have the option to apply for listing on the TSX Venture Exchange.
