Quasar Aerospace Industries, Inc. Details the Terms of Its $350 Million Funding

JACKSONVILLE, FL--(Marketwire - November 18, 2009) - Quasar Aerospace Industries, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: QASP) today released additional details regarding the Company's recently announced primary funding of $350 million.

Mark Lundquist, a Philadelphia based attorney and Senior Vice President for Strategic Planning for Quasar Aerospace Industries, Inc., stated, "This primary funding instrument will provide a $350 million cash infusion into Quasar. Closing documents are being prepared and closing is scheduled for mid-December."

The funds from the transaction will be transferred to Quasar's account as lump sum, upon the execution of the final documents. The funding transaction is structured as a loan, the proceeds of which originate as part of a $1 billion bond issued by Inver Finance Ltd., an Irish corporation.

The bonds, which are secured by $1.4 billion of life settlement policies on individuals over 72 years of age, bear interest at 6.5% with a ten-year term. Under the terms negotiated, interest does not begin accruing until the end of the third year. Additionally, no principal payments become due until the end of the tenth year. Upon maturity of the loan Quasar has three options for repayment: (1) an issuance of the Company's common stock equal to approximately 9% of the common stock outstanding as payment in full of the principal, (2) extend the loan for two successive five years terms, or (3) pay off the principal and any accrued and unpaid interest.

Dean Bradley, CEO of Quasar Aerospace Industries, Inc., commented, "The company continues to make significant strides in the progressive growth of operations. Inver Finance has provided our Company with a very flexible financial instrument that I believe will provide major long-term benefits for the Company's continued growth and success."
