American Eagle Energy Announces $4.0 Million Private Equity Placement

LITTLETON, Colo., Jan. 8, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- American Eagle Energy Corporation (OTCQX: AMZG; "American Eagle" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the sale of 4,000,000 shares of its restricted common stock to Power Energy Holdings LLC.  The purchase price was $1.00 per share and the transaction closed on January 4, 2013.  The per-share sale price represents an approximate 22% premium to the December 31, 2012 closing price of American Eagle's common stock.   

In two other separate agreements, American Eagle granted options to Power Energy Partners LP, an affiliate of Power Energy Holdings LLC, to purchase 10% of either or both of the two Spyglass Property acquisitions, one of which was announced on January 3 and the other of which was announced yesterday.  Each option expires on March 29, 2013, and each contains the same pricing and proportionate ownership terms and conditions of the acquisitions to which the Company is subject.  If Power Energy Partners exercises each option, American Eagle will retain 90% of the assets that it acquired on December 28, 2012 (and announced on January 3, 2013), and 45% of the total assets acquired on January 4, 2013 (and announced yesterday), with the remainder being owned by the Company's Spyglass Property area non-operating joint venture partner, who acquired that 45% interest in the January 4, 2013, transaction.

"I am delighted that Power Energy has invested directly into American Eagle, especially at a price that represents a premium to the market.  Their actions both strengthen our balance sheet and underscore management's belief that our stock has been undervalued for a significant period of time," stated Brad Colby, American Eagle's President.  Colby continued, "We are also pleased that Power Energy's acceptance of the 10% acquisition options reinforces our valuation of the two recently announced acquisitions in a group of derisked properties."

The shares of common stock have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933.  Accordingly, they may not be offered or sold in the United States, except pursuant to an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.  This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the common stock.  The private placement was made by American Eagle without a selling agent and the opportunity to participate in the private placement was available only to Power Energy Holdings, an accredited investor.  This press release is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
