Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SRED) Federal Tax Credits Approved



    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 2 /CNW/ - Hy-Drive Management is pleased to
announce that Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has completed assessment of the
Company's claim for Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SRED)
Federal Tax Credits for the years 2005, 2006 and 2007 and has provided the
Company with its report for approval. CRA tax credits relate to expenditures
made by the Company to advance science in the development of its Hydrogen
Generating System (HGS(R)). A total of $13.0 million in tax credits which may
be used by Hy-Drive to reduce future tax payments has been approved.
    The completion of the CRA audit of Hy-Drive's SRED claim is used as the
basis for determining the Company's Ontario Investment Tax Credit (OITC). The
OITC is a refundable tax credit paid by the Government of Ontario to support
research and scientific development in the Province of Ontario. As a result of
the audit, Hy-Drive will receive a cash payment from the Province for the
years 2005 through 2007 amounting to a total of $591,000 plus accrued
interest. This payment is expected in the current fiscal year and represents a
meaningful addition to the Company's capital.
    Hy-Drive management expects to continue to apply for these and other
Federal and Provincial Government programs available for both 2008 and 2009
fiscal years.
