On June 7, 2017, the Court issued an Order appointing PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. as receiver and manager ("Receiver") over all the assets of Anterra Energy Inc. The purpose of appointing the Receiver is to effect a sale of the assets of the Company.

The Receiver intends to continue operations in the ordinary course, and orders or contracts placed by the Company's customers prior to the receivership are intended to be fulfilled. The Court has authorized the Receiver to obtain financing to pay for services rendered and goods sold to the Company or the Receiver from June 7, 2017 onwards in the ordinary course.
