Innovative Composites Signs Long Term Agreement to Supply EcoScape™ Modular Housing to Brazil

Agreement represents approximately US$160 million of revenue over three years

TORONTO, Nov. 10, 2011 /CNW/ - Innovative Composites International Inc. (TSX-V: IC) ("ICI" or the "Company"), announced today that it has signed a Cooperation Agreement (the "Agreement") with Millenium Brasil Limitada ("Millenium"), a Brazilian general contractor, and Green Intelligence Corporation ("Greenco"), a consulting company dedicated to the development of sustainable projects, to supply EcoScapeTM modular homes for large housing projects in Brazil.

According to the Agreement, approximately US$160 million worth of EcoScapeTM homes would be shipped to Brazil from ICI's South Carolina facility ("SC facility") over the next three years. After such time, ICI would establish a manufacturing facility in Brazil in cooperation with Millenium and Greenco, subject to a minimum local demand for 10,000,000 square feet of housing annually.

ICI will ship a model home to Brazil in early 2012 and begin regular shipments from the SC facility once commercial production begins, expected in the first quarter of calendar 2012. The Agreement contemplates a ramp up of 30 homes per week for the first 1,000 homes increasing to 50 homes per week thereafter.

"EcoScapeTM modular housing has all the attributes we were looking to service large scale demand in Brazil quickly," said Gustavo Cortês, legal representative of Greenco in Brazil.  "Its cost, speed of assembly, energy efficiency and versatility of appearance make it a great choice for the Brazilian market. We look forward to a long term relationship with ICI and applaud their long term commitment to establishing a manufacturing facility in Brazil in partnership with us."

"ICI continues to establish EcoScapeTM as the modular home system of choice for large scale low cost housing projects worldwide," said ICI President and CEO Terry Ball. "There is strong demand in the Brazilian housing market and we believe we have found the right partners to take advantage of this opportunity. ICI continues to win contracts and grow our project pipeline as we get closer to the start-up of the SC facility in the first quarter of next year."

Chosen to host both the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics, Brazil boasts one of the world's most robust economies, with 7.5% growth in 2010 and a rapidly expanding middle class. Under an ambitious accelerated-growth program (Programa de Aceleração do Crescimento, or PAC) Brazil has laid down  investment plans of more than US$800 billion for infrastructure, including approximately US$72 billion for "Minha Casa, Minha Vida", which aims to build two million new homes for low-income families before 2014.
