    TORONTO, April 30 /CNW/ - Cymat Technologies Ltd. ("Cymat" or the

placement financing in the amount of $2,640,280. Fraser MacKenzie acted as the
Company's fiscal advisor in connection with the offering. The Company issued a
total of 9,031,190 Units (comprising a common share and a warrant to purchase
a common share) at $0.14 per Unit and 9,827,945 Subscription Receipts (which

amounts referred to above will be held in escrow pending shareholder approval
