GRAVIS OIL ANNOUNCES NAME CHANGE TO PETRO RIVER OIL AND
NEW TRADING SYMBOL
Houston, Texas; March 20, 2013 – Petro River Oil Corp., (the “Company” or “Petro River”), (OTCPK:GRAVF) announces FINRA has accepted the name change of Gravis Oil Corporation to “Petro River Oil Corp.”, and a change of trading symbol from GRAVF to PTRC. The name change and symbol change will be effective with FINRA and on the Pink Sheets at the commencement of trading today.
Additionally, as the Company reported on Form 6-K, filed with SEC on July 29, 2012, the Company entered into a non-binding letter of intent with Petro River Oil, LLC, a privately held Delaware limited liability company (“Petro LLC”), that would result in the Company issuing shares to acquire Petro LLC. The transaction was suspended until the Alberta and British Columbia regulators removed the Cease Trade Orders imposed upon the Company for late filing. Those orders were rescinded last week. All parties are working diligently to complete the acquisition in a timely manner.
