Securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory four month hold period.

While management of Cielo had hoped that this Offering would be closed by May 31, 2016, Cielo has decided to extend the closing date to March 31, 2017. Cielo is anticipating an additional $500,000 to be subscribed to the Offering for the closing of the next tranche, expected to occur in the near future.

Cielo is also pleased to announce that it has entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with XR Resources Inc. ("XR"). The assets consist of a Case W20C front wheel loader and all of the associated complete bio-diesel analytic laboratory, equipment (gas chromatograph, Karl Fisher, automated Tiltrotor, flash point, etc.) and supplies (the "Assets"). In consideration for the Assets, Cielo has agreed to pay to XR 2,036,364 free-trading common shares of Cielo (the "Payment Shares"), which it will receive as loaned securities from Don Allan, President and CEO. Mr. Allan will enter into a securities lending agreement (the "Share Loan Agreement") with Cielo, whereby Mr. Allan will lend the Payment Shares to Cielo, which will in turn be paid to XR, and Cielo will immediately issue 2,036,364 common shares (the "Repayment Shares") to Mr. Allan, which will be subject to a four-month hold period. The Payment Shares and the Repayment Shares will have a deemed value of $0.055 per shares, for an aggregate value of $112,000.02 being paid for the Assets by Cielo.

As required by National Instrument 62-103 The Early Warning System and Related Take Over Bids and Insider Reporting Issues in connection with the filing of an early warning report (the "Early Warning Report") regarding the acquisition of securities of Cielo by Douglas Allan (the "Offeror").

The Offeror announces that the Offeror has acquired $100,000 of the Convertible Debentures under the Offering.

The Debentures (and Shares) were acquired for investment purposes. The Offeror may, depending on market and other conditions, increase or change its beneficial ownership over the common shares or other securities of Cielo through market transactions, private agreements, treasury issuances, exercise of convertible securities or otherwise. The transactions described in this news release constitute "related party transactions" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101").
