RoaDor Industries Ltd. Announcement of Management Cease Trade Order and Proposed Bridge Loan

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2010) - RoaDor Industries Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RDR) is providing this news release in accordance with National Policy 12-203 – Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults ("NP 12-203"). In its initial default announcement of February 3, 2010 (the "Default Notice"), the Company announced that it did not file its audited financial statements for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2009 (the "Annual Financial Statements") and its management's discussion and analysis relating thereto (collectively, the "Annual Required Filings") before the prescribed deadline of January 28, 2010.

As previously announced, the Company made an application to the applicable securities regulators under NP 12-203 requesting that a management cease trade order be imposed in respect of this late filing. On February 24, 2010, the Ontario Securities Commission issued a management cease trade order, which imposes restrictions on all trading in and all acquisitions of the securities of the Company by the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer of the Company. The aforementioned management cease trade order replaces (in Ontario) a temporary general cease trade order issued by the Ontario Securities Commission on February 10, 2010.

The Company was unable to file the Annual Required Filings by the prescribed deadline because of a lack of working capital and the resultant delay in funding its auditors to perform the audit of the Annual Financial Statements. As a result of the delay in filing the Annual Required Filings, the Company will be unable to file, by the prescribed deadline, its interim financial statements for the three month period ended December 31, 2009 and its management's discussion and analysis relating thereto (collectively, the "Interim Required Filings").

The Company is pleased to announce that CEO Capital Corporation, a related party that arranged for the Company's existing credit facility, is expected to provide bridge loan financing to the Company in the principal amount of approximately $300,000 (the "Bridge Loan"). It is expected that the principal amount under the Bridge Loan will bear interest at 18% per annum and be payable on demand. The closing of the Bridge Loan, which is subject to the satisfactory completion of customary conditions, is expected to occur by the end of the first week of March, 2010. There can be no guarantee that the Bridge Loan will be completed as intended or at all.

The Bridge Loan, if successfully completed, will provide the Company with the necessary funding to engage its auditor to complete the audit of the Annual Financial Statements. Provided that the Bridge Loan is completed as currently anticipated, the Company expects to file the Annual Required Filings and Interim Required Filings on or about April 16, 2010.

Other than as set out herein, the Company reports that since the Default Notice: (i) there is no material change to the information set out in the Default Notice that has not been generally disclosed; (ii) there has been no failure by the Company in fulfilling its stated intentions with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative information guidelines set out in NP 12-203; (iii) there has not been any other specified default by the Company under NP 12-203; and (iv) there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.

The Company will continue to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under NP 12-203 by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of news releases so long as it remains in default of the filing requirements set out above.
