Raydan Manufacturing Inc. Announces Closure of Ontario Based Operations

EDMONTON, Feb. 19 /CNW/ - Raydan Manufacturing Inc. (TSX-V: RDN) announced that effective today Raydan Manufacturing Ontario Inc. ("Raydan Ontario"), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, will cease operations.

The Company has also appointed PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. as the receiver of the assets of Raydan Ontario. This appointment follows the decision of the Company to provide a notice of intention to enforce security to Raydan Ontario pursuant to the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada). Raydan Ontario has waived the notice period in respect of the Company's intention to enforce its security.

After careful examination, it was clear that the best way to protect the Company and its creditors would be to privately appoint a receiver and to enter Raydan Ontario into voluntary receivership. PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., as receiver, will develop a plan to maximize the realization of Raydan Ontario's assets for all creditors, including those persons having claims in priority to the Company.

This closure applies to operations in Ontario only and will minimally affect the Company's operations in Alberta. The Company will concentrate its future efforts on manufacturing for current customers as well as expanding its manufacturing customer base and developing new product lines. These avenues have historically proven to be the most profitable revenue generators for the Company.
