(the “Company” or “Magna Terra”) (TSX-V: MTT) (SSE: MTTCL) reports that its board of directors has approved the settlement of up to $572,256.61 of debt through the issuance of common shares of the Company (the "Debt Settlement"). Pursuant to the Debt Settlement, the Company would issue 11,445,131 common shares of the Company (the "Shares") at a deemed price of $0.05 per Share to certain creditors of the Company, including certain of its directors and officers (the "Creditors").
The issuance of the Shares to the Creditors is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued will be subject to a four month hold period which will expire on the date that is four months and one day from the date of issue.

All of the independent directors of the Company, acting in good faith, considered the transactions and have determined that the fair market value of the securities being issued to insiders and the consideration being paid is reasonable. The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(b) of MI 61-101.
