    VANCOUVER, June 7 /CNW/ - Vitality Products Inc. (the "Company") is
arranging a non-brokered private placement of up to 5 million units of the
Company at a subscription price of $0.20 per unit for gross proceeds of up to
$1 million, subject to regulatory approval. Each unit consists of one common
share and one non-transferable share purchase warrant of the Company, and each
such warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one additional common
share of the Company for a period of two years at a purchase price per common
share of $0.25 for the first year and at a purchase price of $0.30 for the
second year. Finders' fees will be paid on portions of the private placement.
The private placement shares and any shares acquired upon exercise of the
warrants will be subject to a four-month hold period. The net proceeds of the
private placement to the Company will be used, in part, to further develop and
enhance the Company's existing and related businesses, for general corporate
purposes and to enhance the Company's resulting working capital position as a
consequence thereof.
    The Company has also entered into an agreement to sell its 5.17 acres of
land situated in Whatcom County, Washington to Consolidated Firstfund Capital
Corp. ("Firstfund") for a total consideration of $400,000, subject to
regulatory approval. Firstfund is a related company managed by common
directors and officers and controlled by a common director, and the proposed
sale has been approved by the Company's independent Board members and is
considered by the Company to be at fair market value for said land. The
proceeds from the sale will be used to reduce the amount of share
subscriptions outstanding received from Firstfund.
    The Company has also entered into shares for debt settlements with
certain insiders of the Company to settle aggregate indebtedness in the amount
of $200,000 by way of the issuance of 1 million common shares of the Company
at a deemed settlement price of $0.20 per share, subject to regulatory
    The proposed private placement, land sale and debt settlement
transactions are being undertaken by the Company, in part, to meet the Tier 2
