Sofame Announces Funding Initiative

    MONTREAL, Aug. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Sofame Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: SDW), a
leading manufacturer of environmentally efficient industrial hot water systems
and cost efficient heat recovery equipment, has entered into negotiations with
Township Capital Inc. The corporation is working to secure a bridge financing
between $1 million and $2 million in order to fund current working capital
needs and to support its continuing sales and marketing initiatives while the
corporation evaluates its medium-term financing options.
    Since Sofame withdrew its $5 million prospectus filing on July 23, 2009,
the corporation has pursued its aggressive sales and marketing strategy in an
attempt to boost revenues. Sofame's immediate objective is to convert bids to
purchase orders. In the event revenue growth is slow to materialize, financing
the sales and marketing strategy will require sufficient investment in working
capital. Investors and lenders generally require a firm order backlog as
confirmation that Sofame's industrial energy efficiency product line will
generate positive cash flow.
    Management and the Board are committed to supporting the company, its
operations and its customers.
