Chase Packaging Completes Closing of Private Placement

FAIR HAVEN, NJ--(Marketwire - September 10, 2007) - Chase Packaging Corporation (PINKSHEETS: CPKA) today announced the completion of a Private Placement of 13,334 investment units at a per unit purchase price of $150, for a total subscribed amount of $2,000,100. Each investment unit consists of: (1) one share of Series A 10% Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $1.00 per share, stated value $100 per share; (2) 500 shares of the Company's $0.10 par value Common Stock; and (3) 500 Warrants, each of which is exercisable into one share of the Company's Common Stock at $0.15 per share.

The Company ceased its prior packaging business operations as of December 31, 1997, and since that time the Company has maintained its publicly held status, but does not conduct any substantive business.

The net proceeds from the recently completed private placement will initially be invested in short term U.S. Treasury securities and be used for working capital and general corporate purposes while the Company's Board pursues opportunities for a business transaction with an independent operating company.
