Aeromechanical Services Ltd. Announces Revised Brokered Private Placement

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 9, 2006) -


Mr. Bill Tempany, CEO of AeroMechanical Services Ltd. ("AMS" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:AMA) is pleased to announce that the Corporation has decided to terminate its previously announced non-brokered private placement (see press release dated June 29, 2006) and replace it with the proposed brokered private placement.

The terms of the proposed private placement are as follows: up to 12,500,000 units ("Units") of the Company at a price of $0.40 per Unit (the "Unit Price") for gross proceeds of up to $5,000,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit will be comprised of one Class A common share of the Company ("Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share for a period of two years from the closing date of the Offering at an exercise price of $0.60 per share for the period from the closing date of the Offering to the date that is 12 months from the closing date of the Offering and thereafter at an exercise price of $0.75 per share. The Corporation has also granted MGI Securities an option (the "Agent's Option") to increase the offering by up to 3,750,000 units for additional gross proceeds of $1,500,000, all upon the same terms and conditions as set forth above and shall be exercisable prior to the closing of the Offering.

MGI Securities Inc. ("the Agent") will receive a commission of up to 7% of the gross proceeds received by AMS from sales pursuant to the Offering. MGI will also be issued, on the closing date, warrants (the "Agent's Warrants") exercisable to acquire that number of Units equal to 8% of the number of Units sold pursuant to this Offering (including Units sold on exercise of the Agent's Option). The Agent's Warrants shall be exercisable by the Agent for a period of two years from the closing, at an exercise price equal to the Unit Price, for a period of two years from the closing date.

The proceeds will be used to fund inventory, marketing, and working capital. All of the Common Shares and Warrants issued pursuant to the private placement are subject to a 4-month hold period. Closing is to occur on or about August 30, 2006. The Offer may be completed in one or more closings on one or more closing dates and in such amounts as mutually agreed upon between AMS and the Agent. Completion of the private placement is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
