Resources & Energy Squatex Inc.: New partnership agreement with INRS / NSERC and adoption of a stock option plan

BROSSARD, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – June 8, 2017) – The management of Resources & Energy Squatex Inc. (CSE:SQX)(CSE:SQX.CN)(CNSX:SQX) (Squatex) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a new research and partnership agreement with the National Institute for Scientific Research (INRS-ETE) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

This agreement is a continuation of a development program that Squatex began in 2015 with INRS. This work will be necessary to develop and improve a methodology for the analysis of the porosity in drill cores by three-dimensional digital imaging (tomodensitometry). The data thus obtained on the petrophysical properties of the rock will allow us to know faster and more precisely the heterogeneous conventional carbonate reservoirs such as those encountered in Massé.

Mr. Jean-Claude Caron, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Squatex, commented: “Squatex is a pioneering company that is once again emerging from the beaten track and I believe that academic and industrial partnerships like this one are essential for the development of the oil and gas industry in Quebec.”

Squatex also announces the adoption by the Board of Directors of a stock option plan (the Plan) on June 5, 2017 and the allocation, on June 6, 2017, of 1 million options to certain directors. The price was set at $ 0.35 per share and the maturity date for these options was set on June 5, 2022. These options will vest over a one-year period.
