    Company Initiates Non-Dilutive Financing Through Purchase Orders and
    Current Assets

    TSX-V: ACT

    TORONTO, June 17 /CNW/ - Active Control Technology Inc. (TSX-V: ACT)
announced today that the Company has signed a term sheet with Callidus Capital
Corporation (Callidus) of Toronto, Canada for a revolving credit facility of
up to $2,250,000.
    The facility will provide inventory financing for purchase orders, as
well as additional working capital through borrowing against their current
assets: accounts receivable, inventory and raw materials. Under the proposed
arrangement, the facility would be structured as a 12 month demand loan
bearing an annual interest rate of 18%. Interest is only payable on the amount
drawn down on the facility.
    The principal amount of the loan and any unpaid interest due will be
payable at the end of the 12 month term. The Company can prepay the facility
at any time for the payment of a fee of 2% of the facility. The facility will
be secured against all of the assets of the Company. In addition, the Company
has the ability to request a larger facility to accommodate additional
purchase orders of the ActiveMine(TM) systems.
    The proposed facility is expected to close within four (4) weeks and is
subject to Callidus' satisfactory due diligence, internal approvals and
execution of final legal documentation. Readers are cautioned that should
there be a successful close of this facility, this does not guarantee the
Company's access to a portion of, or any of the funds from, the facility. Any
advance under the facility will be solely based upon the availability margin
tests of the balance sheet of the Company and orders in hand at the time the
facility agreement is executed.
    Aberdeen Gould Capital Markets Ltd. of Toronto, Canada, will receive a
cash commission of one and a half percent (1.5%) based upon the aggregate loan
facility available to the Company over the term of the arrangement.
