This is not a recognized measure under IFRS.

4)      Net debt (working capital) is an industry term, and is calculated as current assets less current liabilities, and is not a recognized measure under IFRS.


3MV Energy intends to focus its drilling and production efforts on its Fiske light oil discovery for 2014. As stated, in early 2013, the Corporation acquired a significant position of land in the area which has solidified its asset base and creates potential for further growth and expansion through the drill bit. The Corporation will continue to explore financing opportunities, debt arrangements and joint ventures in 2014 to build on shareholder value. The Corporation will also continue its focus on cost reductions to optimize operational margins and cash flow.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.

The securities offered have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of any offer to buy nor will there be any sale of these securities in any province, state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such province, state or jurisdiction.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements in this news release constitute forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained in this document are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by 3MV. Although 3MV believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements because 3MV can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct.

Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. These include, but are not limited to, the failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals, risks associated with the oil and gas industry in general (e.g., operational risks in development, exploration and production; delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; the uncertainty of reserve estimates; the uncertainty of estimates and projections relating to production, costs and expenses, and health, safety and environmental risks), commodity price and exchange rate fluctuations and uncertainties resulting from potential delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive.  Additional information on these and other factors that could affect 3MV's operations and financial results are included in reports on file with Canadian securities regulatory authorities and may be accessed through the SEDAR website (

The forward-looking statements contained in this document are made as of the date hereof and 3MV undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statements or information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless so required by applicable securities laws.

Oil and Gas Disclosure

For the purpose of calculating unit costs, natural gas volumes have been converted to a barrel of oil equivalent ("BOE") using six thousand cubic feet equal to one barrel unless otherwise stated. A BOE conversion ratio of 6:1 is based upon an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.

Net present value of future net revenue does not represent fair market value of the reserves.  There is no assurance that the forecast prices and cost assumptions will be attained and variances could be material.

Non-GAAP Measures

This press release contains the terms "operating netbacks", "funds generated by operations", and "net debt", which do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and therefore may not be comparable with the calculation of similar measures by other issuers. 3MV uses operating netbacks and funds generated by operations to analyze operating and financial performance. 3MV believes these benchmarks are key measures of profitability and overall sustainability for the Company. Both of these terms are commonly used in the oil and gas industry. Operating netbacks and funds generated by operations are not intended to represent operating profits nor should they be viewed as an alternative to cash flow provided by operating activities, net earnings (loss) or other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. Operating netbacks are determined by deducting royalties, operating costs and transportation from oil and gas revenue. Funds generated by operations are calculated as cash flows from operating activities excluding transaction costs less changes in non-cash working capital and share base payments.3MV uses net debt to assess the financial position and health of the Company. 3MV believes this benchmark is a key measure of financial leverage and displays a Company's ability to repay its debts when due. Net debt is calculated as current assets less current liabilities.
