VANCOUVER, June 25 /CNW/ - Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSXV: SSC), is pleased
to report that the Company has entered into an agreement to acquire the

payments over four years.

Smartcool," states George Burnes President of Smartcool Systems Inc. "This
acquisition will allow the company to generate significant growth and with the
application of capital to the sales and marketing efforts, it will enhance the
very strong technical foundation TECC has established in these regions."
"The acquisition of TECC will streamline Smartcool's distribution channel
thereby providing greater economics," added Chris Lefaivre, VP Sales and
Marketing. "We feel confident that this investment will provide Smartcool
better access to a market that is calling out for energy reduction solutions
and subsequently generate stronger revenue growth for the company."
