(“Cerus” or “the Compa-ny”)wishes to announce that the company has entered into eight debt settlement agreements dated January 12, 2017 in order to settle an additional $1,698,325.20 in outstanding debt through the issuance of 33,966,504 Cerus Energy Group common shares at deemed prices of $0.05 per share. These shares for debt settlements will re-place the shares for debt settlements that were previously announced December 7 2015 as those settlements were never finalized after the announcement and no shares were issued.

Any shares issued in connection with the debt settlement will be issued in reli-ance on certain prospectus and registration exemptions under applicable securities leg-islation and will be subject to a hold period of four months and a day. The completion of the debt settlement remains subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
