EDMONTON, June 23 /CNW/ - Mr. Wayne Rutherford, President and CEO of
PowerComm Inc. (PCG:TSX) today announced that the company has entered into a
non-binding Letter Of Intent ("LOI") to sell substantially all of the assets
of the company.
The LOI is subject to due diligence, regulatory and shareholder approval
and is expected to close in late fall 2009. Because of confidentiality
restrictions imposed by the potential purchaser pursuant to the LOI, neither
the potential purchaser, or the consideration, can be disclosed at this time.
"We have not actively sought a buyer," Mr. Rutherford stated, "but there
are times when you have to explore opportunities as they arise," he continued.
"We are always looking to increase shareholder value and we believe that this
transaction has the capacity to accomplish that," he concluded.

management's assessment of future plans and operations and capital
expenditures and the timing thereof, that involve substantial known and
