Calgary, Alberta – June 13, 2016: Acceleware Ltd. ("Acceleware") (TSX-V:AXE), a leading developer of high performance seismic imaging applications and RF heating technology is pleased to announce that it has received a $200,000 secured loan ("Secured Loan") secured through a general security agreement over the assets of Acceleware.
The Secured Loan is for a 150 day term and interest on the Secured Loan shall accrue to the principal at a rate of 6% per annum for the first 120 days of the term and 10% per annum thereafter. The Secured Loan shall also accrue special interest ("Special Interest") prior to the maturity date of the Secured Loan at a rate of 4.87% per annum, provided that upon any repayment of the Principal Amount prior to or upon the maturity date of the secured loan, the aggregate amount owing by the Debtor to the Creditor in respect of such Special Interest shall be equal to $4,000. No Special Interest shall be payable subsequent to the Maturity Date.

Entering into the loan allows Acceleware to continue to develop and test its highly efficient low-carbon RF heating technology for oil sands and heavy oil production. Notwithstanding the foregoing, there may be circumstances where, for sound business reasons, Acceleware may be required to reallocate the use of the funds.
