Enablence Announces Non-Brokered Private Placement Financing and filing of its Results for the First Quarter Ended September 30, 2014

Ottawa, Canada – November 28, 2014 – Enablence Technologies Inc. (“Enablence” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ENA), a leading supplier of optical components and subsystems for access, metro and long-haul markets, today announced a non-brokered private placement financing up to $3 million to be subscribed for by certain strategic investors (the “Financing”). The Financing has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange. The Financing is an extension of the financing activities that the Company has undertaken over the last several months some of which was delayed because of various third party approval processes.

Today the Company filed its financial results for the first quarter year ended September 30, 2014.  Additional information concerning the Company, including its unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and its Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (“MD&A”) for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 can be found at www.sedar.com.

The Financing is expected to raise up to $3,000,000 at a price of $0.15 per share resulting in the issuance of up to 20,000,000 common shares of the Company.  The shares are subject to a four month hold period pursuant to applicable securities laws. The Financing is expected to close on or about December 15, 2014.

The proceeds from the Financing are expected to meet certain obligations including the repayment of certain bridge and short term loans and provide working capital to the Company.  The Company continues to be highly dependent on raising additional equity financing in order to fund operations, until revenues and gross margins increase to a point at which operations become profitable.  In order to reduce cash requirements until additional financing can be secured, the Company has placed seven employees on temporary layoff status and is looking at other cost saving efficiencies.
