Newsfile Corp.



Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 23, 2014) - Leo Resources Inc. (CSE:LEO) ("Leo” or “the Company") announces that following the one for five share consolidation of its common shares effective today, the Company has closed a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) with Daniel Wettreich, a director of the Company, of 2,500,000 units (each a “Unit”) of Leo at a price of $0.05 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $125,000. Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of Leo and one common share purchase warrant. Each common share purchase warrant entitles the holder to acquire one additional common share in the capital of Leo at an exercise price of $0.05, for 36 months after closing. The securities are subject to a hold period of four months and a day. The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for working capital purposes. Daniel Wettreich now directly and indirectly beneficially owns 2,607,600 common shares of Leo, representing 49.69% of Leo and 2,500,000 common share purchase warrants representing 100% of the outstanding warrants of Leo. The total number of common shares issued and outstanding is 5,247,513.

A material change report in respect of the related party transaction has not been filed at least 21 days in advance of the closing of the Private Placement due to the Company’s immediate need to address its financial situation, which omission is both reasonable and fair in the circumstances. MI 61-101 requires if a material change report is filed less than 21 days before the expected date of the closing of the transaction, an explanation is to be provided as to why the shorter period is reasonable or necessary in the circumstances.

The Company has also granted 500,000 incentive stock options to its directors and officers exercisable at a price of $0.05 per share for periods ranging from 24 months to 60 months from the date of grant.
