    LONDON, ON, April 12 /CNW/ - David Taylor, President & C.E.O. of Pacific

                                                           Targets
                                                        ------------

    Earnings per share                                  $     0.43
    Earnings per share (fully diluted)                  $     0.42
    Return on average total assets                            0.42%
    Spread (teb)                                              1.67%
    Loan growth                                              33.00%
    Total asset growth                                       12.00%
    

    David Taylor stated that, "While I anticipate that there may be income
realized in 2007 from Discovery Air and VersaBanq, the likelihood and the
amount of this income is somewhat less predictable. As such, we felt that it
would not be prudent to include such income in our targets beyond that
realized at January 31, 2007."

Credit Corp., whose shares trade on the TSX under the symbol PWC.
