CV Technologies Confirms Interim Cease Trading Order by the Alberta Securities Commission as It Prepares for Restatement

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - April 20, 2007) - CV Technologies Inc. (TSX:CVQ) today confirmed that the Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) has issued an interim cease trade order halting trading of the Company's securities for 15 days.

This action follows CVQ's April 11, 2007 news release announcing that the Company was voluntarily planning to restate its consolidated financial statements for the year ended Sept. 30, 2006, as well as its interim consolidated financial statements for the first quarter of fiscal 2007 due to a revenue deferral issue in the U.S. market.

The Company, under the guidance of the Board of Directors and after consultation with its independent auditors, has revised the Company's revenue recognition policy as it relates to the entry into new markets or introduction of new products where a right of return arrangement exists either contractually or as a matter of practice. The Company has amended this policy because of the difficulty in estimating consumer uptake and the risk of product return by retailers in these situations.

"We support any action that promotes a fair market for investors and we are working to restate our financials as quickly as possible," said Dr. Jacqueline Shan, President, CEO and Chief Scientific Officer of CV Technologies Inc. "We are preparing to meet with the Commission on May 2 and in the meantime, it is business as usual."
