CALGARY, AB, Canada (November 15th, 2013) - DMGT offers to complete full purchase of outstanding Petrotranz shares.

Earlier this year Petrotranz accepted an initial capital growth investment offer from the Daily Mail General Trust (DMGT), a family-run public company listed on the London Stock Exchange. The intent was to provide proper working capital for the expansion of the Pe-trotranz business in the WCSB. This has given Petrotranz the ability to fuel product growth while following through with completely rebuilding the Petrotranz Transportation and Logistics Platform throughout 2014.

The expansion will occur through the reinvestment of capital into both flagship products and solutions (COTS, LTS), to fund the completion of PDX and to push forward the development of PQM. It would also further fund a new innovative solution currently being designed for all stakeholders in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. Petrotranz will also officially become sister companies with other DMGT owned and controlled companies like Digital H2O, Genscape and Locus Energy.
