Issued: 18,482,316 shares

CALGARY, Feb. 8 /CNW/ - Rocky Mountain Dealerships Inc. ("Rocky"), announced today that it has entered into an agreement (the "Agreement") to purchase 100% of the outstanding shares of J&B Equipment Ltd ("J&B"), a Case IH agriculture dealership operating in Kindersley, Saskatchewan. 

For the most recent fiscal year ended October 31, 2010, J&B had revenues of approximately $18 million. This acquisition is expected to close effective April 1, 2011.

Rocky's CEO Brian Taschuk remarked, "This is a strategically important acquisition for Rocky as it marks our entry into the important Western Saskatchewan market.  It will allow for better continuity, management, product support, and inventory access between our Hi-Way Service stores in Alberta, and our Miller Equipment stores in Eastern Saskatchewan and Manitoba."
