NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES 

Tonbridge Power Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TBZ) ("Tonbridge" or the "Company") announces that it has scheduled a special meeting (the "Meeting") of shareholders for November 4, 2009 whereby shareholders will be asked to provide the board of directors (the "Board") of the Corporation with the authority to amend the articles of the Corporation to provide for the consolidation of the Common Shares of the Corporation (the "Common Shares"), on the basis of one (1) new common share for every ten (10) Common Shares issued and outstanding (the "Consolidation").

If the Consolidation is approved by shareholders and subsequently implemented by the Board, the number of issued and outstanding Common Shares will be reduced from 284,821,107 Common Shares to 28,482,111 Common Shares. Furthermore, each stock option, warrant or other security of the Corporation convertible into pre-consolidation Common Shares (the "Convertible Securities") that has not been exercised or cancelled prior to the effective date of the implementation of the Consolidation will be adjusted pursuant to the terms thereof on the same exchange ratio described above and each holder of pre-consolidation Convertible Securities will become entitled to receive post-consolidation Common Shares pursuant to such adjusted terms.

Management of the Company believes that the consolidation of the Common Shares could enhance their marketability, among other things.

The Consolidation has been conditionally approved by the TSX Venture Exchange and a further press release will be issued in the event the Consolidation receives the approval of the shareholders.

Further details regarding the Consolidation are described in the Company's proxy materials available on www.sedar.com.
