TORONTO, April 9 /CNW/ - Graniz Mondal Inc. ("Graniz") (NEX: GRA.H)
announces that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent with
DigiScreen Corporation ("DigiScreen", www.digiscreen.ca), a private
Montreal-based corporation specializing in creating and administering digital
networks for the international distribution and presentation of independent
film and alternative content, such as opera and musical concerts. The letter
of intent contemplates that the parties will conduct a reverse take-over or
other business combination (a "Transaction") whereby Graniz would acquire
DigiScreen from DigiScreen's shareholders in exchange for approximately 50% of
the common shares of Graniz ("Graniz Shares") issued and outstanding after the
completion of the Transaction (on a non-diluted basis and after taking into
account the private placement described below). It is contemplated that the
completion of the Transaction be conditional upon a private placement of
common share units at prices (and subject to terms and conditions) to be
determined, for aggregate gross proceeds of $2,000,000 (the "Private
Placement"). It is proposed that the securities issued in the Private
Placement would convert on a one-for-one basis into shares of Graniz upon
completion of the Transaction, on the basis of one post-Transaction share so
issued being valued at $0.25 per share.
Upon the completion of the Transaction, Mr. Daniel Langlois and Mr.
Campbell Becher will be appointed to the board of directors of Graniz, and Mr.
Langlois will be appointed as the non-executive Chairman of the board of
directors of Graniz.

$250,000 to DigiScreen as a loan for the payment of Transaction-related and
operational expenses to be incurred by DigiScreen, so as to permit the
continued operation of DigiScreen while the transactions contemplated in the
letter of intent are being pursued. An initial advance of $25,000 will be made
immediately, and the balance would be available after approval of the TSX
Venture Exchange is obtained. The parties contemplate paying a 5% finder's fee
in connection with the loan from Graniz to DigiScreen, as well as issuing
200,000 Graniz Shares upon completion of the Transaction, all of which would
