TORONTO, Canada (May 26, 2014) Pinetree Capital Ltd. (TSX: PNP) announces the partial closing today of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Financing”), pursuant to which Pinetree raised aggregate gross proceeds of $8,500,000 from the issuance and sale of 18,888,889 units, at a price of $0.45 per unit. The company expects the remaining portion of the Financing, representing gross proceeds of $2,000,000, to be completed within the next few days.

The proceeds of the Financing will be used for working capital purposes, which may include the purchase for cancellation of a portion of the company’s outstanding convertible debentures.
Officers and directors of Pinetree (and their associates) purchased an aggregate of 3,933,333 units under the Financing, representing approximately 21% of the total number of units sold today and 17% of the total number of units anticipated to be sold upon completion of the entire Financing.
