CHDT Corp. Secures Target Private Label Book Light Program for 2008-2009

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - March 13, 2008) - CHDT Corp. (OTCBB: CHDO), a Florida corporation, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Capstone Industries, has been awarded a 2008-2009 commitment for its private label book light program with all Target Stores nationwide.

In October of 2007, Capstone lighting products were distributed in private labeled planogram sets in 1100 Target stores and due to brisk holiday sales Target added 500 additional stores at year end. Capstone has secured a commitment for 2008-2009 which calls for all Target stores to display a large holiday end cap with 15 product facings and after Christmas the retailer will install a smaller display in all stores for the subsequent three quarters.

"The point of sales results generated by our Target private label lighting program in 2007 was a key factor in the retailer's decision to continue with planogram programs for all stores for 2008-2009," said Oscar Martinez, VP of Sales at Capstone Industries. Mr. Martinez believes that this further commitment validates Capstone Industries' expanded book light marketing campaign in 2007, including the offering of private label branding and new product offerings.

Capstone, over the next month, will introduce a new "eco-friendly" lighting product that will cross over into the housewares, small appliances, hardware, office supply, and emergency preparedness categories. This decorative, lithium-ion powered, induction charging, multi function light is anticipated to be one of Capstone's most popular selling lighting products. Sales presentations will be made over the next month with key accounts, and will formally be launched at the upcoming National Hardware Show in Las Vegas in early May. The company anticipates sales in the 3rd quarter.
