TriNorth Capital Inc. Seeks Shareholder Approval for Share Consolidation



    TORONTO, May 21 /CNW/ - TriNorth Capital Inc. ("TriNorth" or the
"Company") (TSX: TRT) announces that at an annual and special meeting of
shareholders of the Company to be held on June 22, 2009 (the "Meeting"),
shareholders will be asked to consider and approve a special resolution to
consolidate all of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares on the
basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for every ten (10)
pre-consolidation common shares.
    TriNorth currently has 150,747,317 common shares outstanding and the
consolidation of 10 to 1 will reduce the common shares outstanding to
approximately 15,074,731. Any fractional shares of the Company arising from
the share consolidation will be rounded down to the nearest whole share of the
Company.
    The Board and management of TriNorth believe it is in the best interests
of shareholders to complete the share consolidation to provide the Company
with increased flexibility to seek additional financing opportunities and to
pursue strategic transactions because it may improve the market's perception
of the Company. Further details regarding the background, reasons and impact
of the proposed share consolidation are described in the Company's management
information circular, a copy of which is available at www.sedar.com. The
information circular also describes particulars of the other matters to be
voted upon at the meeting and the manner in which shareholders may vote on
such matters.
    The special resolution relating to the proposed share consolidation
requires the approval of not less than 66 2/3% of the votes cast by
shareholders represented at the Meeting in person or by proxy. The proposed
share consolidation also requires the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange as
it is anticipated that TriNorth's previously disclosed change of its listing
from the Toronto Stock Exchange to the TSX Venture Exchange will occur prior
to the Meeting. Neither the Company's name nor stock symbol will change as a
result of the change in listing.
