Arrowhead Water Announces Share Consolidation

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 30, 2010) -


Arrowhead Water Products Ltd. ("Arrowhead" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AWA) is pleased to announce that effective October 1, 2010 the Company shall consolidate its Class A Common Shares on a one (1) new Class A Common Share for five (5) old Class A Common Shares (1:5) basis (the "Consolidation"). The Consolidation was approved by shareholders at the annual and special meeting of the Company which was held on August 25, 2010 as well as by the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"). The Board of Directors believes that the Consolidation should enhance the marketability of the shares of the Company.

Registered shareholders of the Company will be requested to deliver their share certificates representing the pre-Consolidation Class A Common Shares to the Company's transfer agent against delivery of new certificates representing the post-Consolidation Class A Common Shares. A letter of transmittal for the exchange of the shares will be sent to the shareholders concurrent with the issuance of this news release or shortly thereafter. No action is required by non-registered shareholders, who hold securities of the Company through an intermediary, to effect the Consolidation of their beneficially held securities.

As a result of the Consolidation, the Company's issued and outstanding common shares shall decrease from 72,461,146 Class A Common Shares (pre-consolidation) to approximately 14,492,229 Class A Common Shares (post-consolidation), subject to rounding. The post-Consolidation Class A Common Shares will commence trading on the TSXV under the new trading symbol "AWA" on October 1, 2010. Further details with respect to the Consolidation are disclosed in the Company's Management Information Circular dated July 29, 2010, which has been electronically filed with regulators and available for viewing through the Internet on the Canadian System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at
