(TSX-V: AXE, "Acceleware" or the "Corporation"), proposes to complete a non-brokered private placement of units (the "Units") to raise gross proceeds of up to $2,000,000 (the "Private Placement"). Each Unit shall consist of one common share of the Corporation (a "Common Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Corporation (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder of the Warrant to acquire one common share of the Corporation, at an exercise price of $0.22, for a period of 24 months after the date of issue.
Acceleware may issue up to 18,181,818 Units at a price of $0.11 per Unit.

The Private Placement may close in one or more tranches. The closing of the Private Placement is subject to, among other things, receipt of subscription agreements from suitable investors and receipt of TSX Venture Exchange approval.
The Corporation intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement to continue to develop and field test its innovative radio frequency RF XL heavy oil and oil sands extraction technology, and for general corporate purposes.
