Novas To Become Wholly Owned Subsidiary of Propell in Share Exchange

Propell Technologies Group, Inc. (OTCQB: PROP) today announced that it has completed a share exchange agreement with the shareholders of Novas Energy USA Inc. of Houston, Texas, in which Novas became a wholly owned subsidiary of Propell.

In the share exchange agreement, Propell exchanged 100,000,000 of its shares of common stock for all of the issued and outstanding shares of Novas. After the consummation of the share exchange, Novas became a wholly owned subsidiary of Propell, and the shareholders of Novas received shares of the common stock representing in the aggregate approximately 56 percent of the outstanding voting power (including common and preferred shares) of Propell.

Novas Energy USA was organized to engage in the commercial application of a proprietary "Plasma-Pulse Technology" (PPT) to enhance the recovery of oil in existing wells. Under its PropellShops brand, Propell has been offering technology ecommerce solutions for schools and nonprofits since 2008, hosting web sites and providing on-demand manufacturing of apparel and other products.

“We are impressed with the technology and team at Novas, and believe it is in the best interest of our shareholders to take this opportunity to diversify our business,” said Ed Bernstein, CEO of Propell.

“We think the combination will provide more resources for both businesses,” said John Huemoeller II, CEO of Novas. Huemoeller said the technology, which is exclusively licensed to Novas for use in the United States, is expected to extend the economic life of mature oil fields and permit previously unrecoverable oil to be recovered efficiently. The treatment uses no chemicals and is environmentally friendly, he said.
