Conporec Concludes a CA$1.5M Interim Financing

SOREL-TRACY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 16, 2008) - Conporec (TSX VENTURE:CNX)(ALTERNEXT:ALCNX) announces that after having obtained the protection of the Superior Court under the terms of the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA) last August 8th, it has concluded a debtor-in-possession financing (DIP financing) of CA$1.5M from a leading European renewable waste-to-energy contractor, involved in fields of activities that are complementary to Conporec's. This DIP financing is guaranteed by a first rank mortgage on all of Conporec's assets. Conporec has also obtained from the Court a 60 days extension of the initial ordinance, thus extending it until November 7th.

The DIP financing allows Conporec to concentrate on the implementation of its restructuring as well as creditors' arrangement plans. It also makes it possible to work on the resumption of the Canada-based facilities, while maintaining the activities of its subsidiary companies Conporec S.A.S. (France) and Conporec PTY (Australia) which are not affected by the CCAA.

The identity of this financial partner will be announced in the next weeks, once the partnering discussions are finalized.
