Cantronic Retains Lawrence Casse for Investor Relations

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 31, 2011) - Cantronic Systems Inc., ("Cantronic" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CTS) has entered into an investor relations agreement (the "Agreement") with AlphaEdge Inc. of Toronto ("AlphaEdge"), a company whose principal is Lawrence Casse, effective April 1, 2011. Mr Casse was previously a research analyst with two Toronto institutional investment firms over the past five years.

Mr. Casse commented, "I am pleased to be working with Cantronic. Cantronic has recently announced it will sell its North American business to focus on the enormous opportunity in the Chinese video surveillance market. Cantronic has acquired three companies in China since 2009, can act as a prime contractor on a national basis and sees further opportunities to act as a video surveillance technology consolidator. The companies acquired in China have their own R&D teams, intellectual property and source code, distinguishing them from mere component assemblers and distributors. I expect Cantronic to grow significantly over the next few years both organically and through acquisition and I intend to communicate this to the investment community."

AlphaEdge is an investor relations company and will provide a variety of market communications and investor relations services to Cantronic, including assisting with the dissemination of news and information to the public and initiating and maintaining contact with the investment community.

The initial term of the Agreement is for 6 months. For services rendered under the Agreement, AlphaEdge shall receive monthly compensation of $2,200. As additional consideration, Cantronic shall also issue to Lawrence Casse 30,000 stock options entitling him to purchase up to 30,000 common shares of Cantronic at an exercise price of $0.30, exercisable up until May 1, 2013 but subject to the vesting requirements and terms of Cantronic's stock option plan.
