TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 6, 2017) - MCW Energy Group Limited ("MCW") (TSX VENTURE:MCW)(OTCQX:MCWEF), announces today that it is proposing to change its name to Petroteq Energy Inc. (the "Name Change"), to change its trading symbol to "PQE", and to consolidate its issued and outstanding common shares (the "Common Shares") on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for thirty (30) pre-consolidation Common Shares (the "Consolidation"), or such number of pre-consolidation shares as may be determined by the Board of Directors (the "Board") or may be required to obtain approval of the Consolidation from the TSX Venture Exchange. Additional information relating to the proposed Consolidation is included in the management information circular of the Corporation dated February 20, 2016 (the "Circular"), which is available on SEDAR at

The Corporation has posted the Circular with respect to its annual and special meeting of shareholders (the "Shareholders") scheduled for April 6, 2017 (the "Meeting"). As part of the Meeting, Shareholders will be asked to pass a special resolution authorizing the Board, at a time it sees fit, to amend the Corporation's articles to effect the Consolidation. There are currently 227,036,111 Common Shares issued and outstanding. If and upon the Consolidation becoming effective, on a maximum of one (1) to 30 (30) basis, it is expected there will be approximately 7,567,870 post-Consolidation Common Shares in the capital of the Corporation issued and outstanding on a non-diluted basis (assuming no additional Common Shares are issued after the date hereof). The Board believes the Name Change and Consolidation is necessary in order for the Corporation to more easily raise capital and attract business opportunities. The directors of the Corporation believe that at present, with the current corporate structure, it is extremely difficult, for the Corporation to raise capital and to proceed with the seeking of business opportunities. The Board, in its sole discretion, may revoke the resolution approving the Consolidation and abandon the Consolidation without further approval, action by, or prior notice to Shareholders. The Consolidation is subject to Shareholder and regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Registered Shareholders are advised not to mail in the certificate(s) representing their Common Shares until they receive a letter of transmittal and confirmation from the Corporation by way of news release that the Board of Directors of the Corporation has decided to implement the Consolidation.
