    MONTREAL, April 10 /CNW Telbec/ - Further to its preliminary news release
of December 19, 2006, LTT Capital Corp. ("LTT") (TSX V: LTT.P), a Capital Pool
Company in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the
"Exchange") and Arura Pharma Inc. ("Arura") are pleased to announce that LTT
and Arura have entered into an agency agreement with Laurentian Bank
Securities Inc. and Kingsdale Capital Markets Inc. acting as co-agents
pursuant to which Arura intends to raise a minimum of $1 million and a maximum
of $2 million (the "Private Placement").
    A first Private Placement closing took place as of March 31, 2007 for
gross proceeds of $1,165,000. It is contemplated that additional closings
shall take place before closing of the transaction by which LTT will acquire
all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Arura (the "Transaction").
The Transaction will constitute the qualifying transaction of LTT.
    The Private Placement is being raised by the issuance of subscription
receipts units (a "Unit"). Each Unit will be issued by Arura at a subscription
price of $0.25 and, upon completion of the Transaction, will be exchanged by
its holder for two (2) common shares and one share purchase warrant of the
resulting issuer. Each warrant will be exercisable for a period of 24 months
after the closing of the Transaction for one common share at an exercise price
equal to $0.225 per common share. The agents will receive a cash commission
equal to 7% of the gross proceeds received by Arura from the sale of the Units
and agent's options equal to 7% of the number of Units sold under the Private
Placement. Each agent's option entitles its holder to acquire one common share
of the resulting issuer at a price of $0.125 and one-half of a common share of
the resulting issuer at a price of $0.225 per common Share, for a period of
24 months after the closing of the Transaction. Assuming that the Private
