Advantage Announces Non-core Asset Disposition Process To Simplify Corporation And Facilitate Monetization Of Glacier

Stocks in this article: AAV

(TSX: AAV, NYSE: AAV)

CALGARY, Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Advantage Oil & Gas Ltd. ("Advantage" or the "Corporation") (TSX: AAV) (NYSE: AAV) announces that it has engaged RBC Capital Markets to market for sale all of the Corporation's non-core assets, defined as all corporate assets excluding Advantage's core Glacier Montney natural gas asset and its 21.15 million share ownership position in Longview Oil Corp. (TSX: LNV).

As previously disclosed the Corporation will continue to execute on its middle Montney delineation program during the second half of 2012 to more broadly establish the natural gas and NGL production potential in the middle Montney across the Corporation's land base at Glacier.  The Corporation expects to be in a position to engage a financial advisor and initiate a strategic alternatives process by the end of 2012 to consider among other transactions the sale of Glacier subject to completion of the ongoing middle Montney delineation.

Advantage's Board of Directors (the "Board") believes that undertaking the non-core asset disposition process at this time is in the best interests of the Corporation's shareholders.  The Board believes that its core Glacier asset is materially undervalued in the context of the Corporation's current market valuation and that disposing of non-core assets will simplify the Corporation leading to a greater appreciation of its core Glacier asset as well as generate proceeds that may be used for debt repayment, special dividends or otherwise deployed to enhance shareholder value as the Board may determine appropriate.

The Board remains committed to shareholder value maximization and thanks shareholders for their support.

It is the Corporation's current intention not to disclose developments with respect to this process until the Board of Directors has approved a specific transaction or otherwise determines that disclosure is necessary or appropriate.  The Corporation cautions that there are no assurances or guarantees that this process will result in any transactions or, if any transactions are undertaken the terms or timing of any such transactions.
