Delta Systems, Inc. Announces the Secured Borrowing of C$1.25 Million


    ROGERS, ARKANSAS, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - Delta Systems, Inc. ("Delta Systems" or
the "Company") (TSX-V: DLT), a leading developer of factory automation
solutions for the consumer packaged goods industry, today announced that it
has closed two loan transactions pursuant to which it has borrowed an
aggregate of C$1,250,000 on a secured basis from Gerald Hurlow and two other
unrelated parties (each, a "Lender") and has issued therefore a promissory
note to Mr. Hurlow in the principal amount of C$650,000, and promissory notes
to the unrelated parties in the principal amounts of C$400,000 and C$200,000
respectively (collectively, the "Promissory Notes"), such Promissory Notes
bearing interest at a rate of 11% per annum and repayable 30 days after
    As general and continuing security for the performance of the Company's
obligations under the Promissory Notes, the Company has entered a general
security agreement in favour of each Lender granting a security interest in
all the present and future undertaking and property of the Company. In
addition, the Company's subsidiaries, Delta Systems, Inc. (a corporation
organized under the laws of the State of Arkansas), Delta Controls, Inc. and
Delta Automation Solutions, Inc. have each entered into a guarantee and
general security agreement in favour of each Lender. The borrowing from Mr.
Hurlow follows the repayment by the Company of certain unsecured loans that
had been previously advanced by Mr. Hurlow to the Company, the proceeds of
such repayment having been loaned back to the Company on a secured basis as
described herein.
    Pursuant to Ontario Securities Commission Rule 61-501 ("Rule 61-501"),
this transaction may be classified as a "related party transaction" since Mr.
Hurlow is a director and officer of the Company. The Company has determined
that exemptions from certain requirements of Rule 61-501 are available. Given
the existence of these exemptions and the fact that the final terms of the
transaction were settled shortly before closing, the transaction closed prior
to the filing of the material change report required by Rule 61-501.
