Lorex announces CDN $1.6 million private placement



    TORONTO, June 5 /CNW/ - LOREX Technology Inc. ("LOREX" or "the Company")
(TSX: LOX) announced today that it has entered into a private placement
agreement valued at CDN $1.6 million. The agreement would result in a
subscription of 20,000,000 common shares of the Company at a price of CDN$0.08
per share.
    The subscription agreement is scheduled to close on or before June 15th,
2009. Lorex intends to rely on the financial hardship exemption from the
Toronto Stock Exchange requirement for shareholder approval. The private
placement is conditional on TSX approval being obtained, and there is no
assurance that it will be granted.
    The terms of the private placement were reviewed and approved by an
independent committee of the board of directors of Lorex that was established
in order to review financial alternatives presented to Lorex. The independent
committee retained a financial advisor to assist it, and has received
financial advice on the terms of the placement.
    Henry Schnurbach commented "The increased liquidity will provide the
Company the support to allow the business to continue with its momentum of
growth and LOREX will be in a position to allocate the funding to support its
sales potential. The new Investor should provide industry support and offer
guidance to new opportunities, as having had years of experience in the retail
environment in both Canada and the United States."
    The agreement's subscriber has included in the agreement the condition to
review to the subscriber's satisfaction the current lending agreements. The
agreement, which is conditional upon settlement of a definitive subscription
agreement, was made by the Company in order to comply with a requirement by
its current lender to raise a minimum of US$1 million by June 30th, 2009. By
raising the funds, the Company will also secure a loan extension through May,
2012.
    The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the subscription to
support general working capital requirements. Further funding may be required
to support these requirements in the future.
