leading manufacturer of innovative commercial-industrial heat recovery
equipment, has closed a private placement of 1,700,000 common shares at a

Ontario and one investor resident the United States of America. Sofame will
apply the gross proceeds from the private placement toward working capital and
marketing costs.
    John Gocek, President and CEO of Sofame stated, "Sofame continues to
aggressively promote and raise awareness of its energy efficient products in
the consulting engineering community and with industrial and institutional
end-users who operate power plants in a wide variety of industries. The
Cleantech sector is one of the few segments expected to expand in 2009 and
Sofame is experiencing increased demand for its equipment."
    In connection with the closing of the private placement, Sofame paid a
cash finder's fee equal to 10% of the gross proceeds raised under the
placement to Canadian residents and issued an aggregate of 155,000
compensation warrants to purchase common shares of Sofame to Notre-Dame
Capital Inc. and other registered representatives who were instrumental in
introducing the Canadian-resident "accredited investors" to the corporation.
Each compensation warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one
additional common share of Sofame at a price of $0.20 for a period of twelve
months.
    Under applicable securities legislation and the policies of the TSX
Venture Exchange, the securities issued under the private placement are
subject to a hold period expiring on May 24, 2009. As a result of the private
placement, there are 86,598,846 common shares of Sofame issued and
outstanding.
