VANCOUVER, April 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - New Gold Inc. ("New Gold") (TSX and NYSE AMEX:NGD) today announces the closing of its private offering of $300 million aggregate principal amount of 7.0% Senior Notes due 2020 (the "Notes").

New Gold today issued an irrevocable notice of redemption for the Senior Secured Notes.

"We are very pleased to have completed this financing as it lowers the interest rate, extends the term and enhances our flexibility when compared to the Senior Secured Notes," stated Brian Penny, Chief Financial Officer.

The redemption date for the Senior Secured Notes will be May 7, 2012.
