CHDT Corp. Secures $2,000,000 Credit Line From Sterling National Bank

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - May 5, 2008) - CHDT Corp. (OTCBB: CHDO), a management company operating subsidiaries focused on designing and manufacturing consumer products for the North American retail market, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Capstone Industries, has secured a conventional $2,000,000 asset based line of credit from Sterling National Bank (Sterling), located in New York City.

Over the past six months the company had been in negotiations with a variety of funding sources and Sterling was chosen due to its structure of funding, which is based on the company's accounts receivables and inventories and no equity or convertible note features. The company will be able to increase its available credit facility, currently two million dollars, as account receivables and inventories grow because the funding is based on a percentage of these two factors.

"We are pleased to have the opportunity to embark on a business relationship with a bank that is focused on asset based lending and is experienced with our retailers and their payment cycles. We look forward to working and growing our business with Sterling National Bank, a bank that has been asset based lending since 1929. It was important for our company to find a funding partner that can grow as we grow," said Howard Ullman, Chairman of CHDT Corp.
