C.A. Bancorp Inc. Announces Follow-On Investment in High Fidelity HDTV Inc.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2009) - C.A. Bancorp Inc. (TSX:BKP) ("C.A. Bancorp") is pleased to announce that it has completed a $1.5 million follow-on investment and increased its equity interest in High Fidelity HDTV Inc. ("High Fidelity" or the "Company").

C.A. Bancorp invested an additional $1.5 million (by way of convertible debenture) in High Fidelity which was used by High Fidelity to partially repay the previously existing $4.0 million debenture held by C.A. Bancorp. C.A. Bancorp believes that this was an opportune time to increase its equity position in High Fidelity given C.A. Bancorp's current valuation range of High Fidelity and expectations of the Company's long-term growth prospects.

As a result of these transactions, C.A. Bancorp now holds a 13% equity interest in High Fidelity as well as a $2.5 million debenture paying a 10% annual coupon (5% cash, 5% paid-in-kind) maturing in July 2010 and a $1.5 million convertible debenture which is convertible into an additional 6% of High Fidelity's equity and which pays a 7% annual cash coupon.
