Alaris Royalty Corp. Announces Completion of Contribution to Solowave and Exercise of Subscription Receipts for Common Shares

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 16, 2010) - Alaris Royalty Corp. ("Alaris" or the "Corporation") (TSX:AD) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously-announced contribution (the "Solowave Contribution") of $32,500,000 to Solowave Design LP (the "Partnership"), a partnership formed with Solowave Design Inc. ("Solowave"). Pursuant to the terms of the agreement governing the Partnership, Alaris acquired 3,250,000 preferred limited partnership units (the "Preferred Units") in the Partnership. Alaris is also pleased to announce it has repaid its outstanding subordinated debt in full.

The Preferred Units entitle Alaris to an initial annual preferred distribution of $5,000,000 in the first twelve (12) months from closing, payable monthly, in priority to holders of other units in the Partnership.

"Alaris is proud to be a partner with Solowave. The strength of Solowave's management team as well as the stability of its business made this a perfect fit for Alaris. We look forward to future contributions to the Partnership as it continues to grow and demonstrate its market leadership." said Alaris President and CEO, Steve King.

As a consequence of the completion of the Solowave Contribution, each of the 2,477,000 subscription receipts that were issued in Alaris' public offering completed earlier today were automatically exercised into one voting common share of Alaris and the escrowed proceeds of the offering were released to Alaris.
