/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA /

CALGARY, AB , June 16, 2020 /CNW/ - Cathedral Energy Services Ltd. (the "Company" or "Cathedral") (CET.TO) is providing an update on the status of its interim financial statements (the "Financial Statements") and related management's discussion and analysis (the "MD&A", and together with the Financial Statements, the "Interim Filings") for the interim period ended March 31, 2020 .

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, securities regulatory authorities in Canada have granted a blanket exemption granting issuers an additional 45 days to complete certain regulatory filings (the "Exemption"). Further to the Company's press release dated May 10, 2020 , the Company will continue to rely on the Exemption to postpone the filing of the Financial Statements required by section 4.4 of National Instrument 51-102 and the filing of the MD&A required by subsection 5.1(2) of National Instrument 51-102.

The Company is providing this update in accordance with the requirements of the Exemption. The Company confirms that there have been no material business developments since May 10, 2020 , when it announced that it would be relying on the Exemption in respect of the Interim Filings.

Cathedral anticipates filing the Interim Filings on or about June 25 , 2020.  Until such time as the Interim Filings are filed, management and other insiders of Cathedral will remain subject to a trading black-out policy that reflects the principles in section 9 of National Policy 11-207 Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.
