CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 1, 2016) -


Walmer Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:WAL.H) (the "Company" or "Walmer"), a capital pool company as defined under Policy 2.4 - Capital Pool Companies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), is providing an update to its previous press releases regarding its proposed Qualifying Transaction with Renaissance Exploration, Inc. ("RenEx"). The Company advises today that the transaction with RenEx has been terminated due to the inability of Walmer to complete a minimum financing for gross proceeds of at least $1,000,000.

Walmer is actively pursuing two alternative possibilities for Qualifying Transactions and will report further on their progress at the appropriate time. Jay Richardson, Walmer's CEO, commented: "While I am disappointed that the extremely negative attitude of the markets toward resource exploration opportunities, even those with very high prospectivity, prevented the completion of this transaction, I am pleased that we are pursuing two other opportunities that hold promising potential for our shareholders."

The Company will provide a further update with respect to its business or operations, including with respect to its proposed Qualifying Transaction, in future news releases. The Company is still committed to pursuing its Qualifying Transaction as soon as possible and to subsequently apply for relisting of the common shares of the Company on the facilities of the Exchange.

The Company's common shares remain suspended from trading and it is expected that trading will remain suspended until completion of a Qualifying Transaction.

About Walmer Capital Corp.: Walmer is a CPC that completed its initial public offering and obtained a listing on the Exchange in May, 2012. In August 2014, Walmer was transferred to the NEX Board of the Exchange (Trading Symbol "WAL.H") and trading in its shares was suspended. Prior to entering into an earn-in agreement with RenEx, Walmer did not carry on any active business activity other than reviewing potential transactions that would qualify as Walmer's Qualifying Transaction.
