    MONTREAL, April 13 /CNW Telbec/ - (NYSE:   CGT; TSX: CAE) - CAE Inc.
("CAE") and 4341392 Canada Inc. ("Bidco", collectively with CAE, the
"Offeror") announced today that the cash offer (the "Offer") to purchase all
the issued and outstanding common shares (the "Engenuity Common Shares") of
Engenuity Technologies Inc. ("Engenuity"), as extended on March 30, 2007, has
now expired.
    On April 3, 2007, Bidco had taken up 14,902,225 Engenuity Common Shares.
An additional number of 45,990 Engenuity Common Shares have been tendered to
the Offer as of April 12, 2007; once those are taken up Bidco will hold a
total of 14,948,215 Engenuity Common Shares representing approximately 85.7%
of the total outstanding number thereof. The Offeror intends to take steps in
order to proceed with a subsequent acquisition transaction as soon as
practicable, pursuant to which the remaining Engenuity Common Shares which
have not been tendered to the Offer would be acquired. The Offeror owns a
sufficient number of Engenuity Common Shares to approve such a transaction at
any special meeting of shareholders called for that purpose.
    Upon completion of the subsequent acquisition transaction, the Offeror
intends to de-list the Engenuity Common Shares from the Toronto Stock Exchange
and to cause Engenuity to apply to securities regulatory authorities to cease
to be a reporting issuer.
