VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 1, 2010) -


EAGLE I CAPITAL CORPORATION ("Eagle I" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EIC) is pleased to announce that on September 30, 2010, it has acquired, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Eagle Acquisition, Inc., certain operating assets formerly owned by Miguel's Products, LLC, consisting of trademarks, trade names, recipes, formula and related intellectual property (collectively, the "Miguel's Operating Assets") from WWS Holdings, LLC, a New Jersey limited liability company, pursuant to the terms and conditions of a trademark and intellectual property license agreement as of September 1, 2010 (the "License Agreement"), which agreement was announced in the press release issued by the Company on September 3, 2010 and a copy of which is available on www.sedar.com. The acquisition of Miguel's Operating Assets constitutes the Company's qualifying transaction (the "Qualifying Transaction") under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Upon the close of the Qualifying Transaction, Louise Birnberg, as trustee of the Jack Birnberg Trust, became an insider of the Company, holding 1,350,000 Common Shares (as defined below), representing approximately 13.7% of the Common Shares issued and outstanding.

The common shares of the company (the "Common Shares") are now trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "EIC".

The Miguel's Operating Assets consist of proprietary intellectual property and business relationships necessary to manufacture and sell all natural and organic tortilla chips, salsa and other snack products under the Miguel's brand. Such products are sold in 35 states under the Miguel's Stowe Away® and other private label brand names.

Eagle I is also pleased to announce that further to its news release dated June 11, 2010, Eagle I has closed a private placement of 3,215,500 units (the "Units") for aggregate gross proceeds of $803,875 (the "Private Placement"). Each Unit is comprised of one Common Share and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share until March 29, 2012 at an exercise price of $0.35 per Common Share.

Canaccord Genuity Corp. ("Canaccord") acted as agent for a portion of the Private Placement and as consideration for their services received $48,650 commission in cash, 150,000 Units, as a corporate finance fee, an administration fee, and 194,600 warrants (the "Agent's Warrants"). Each Agent's Warrant entitles the holder to acquire a Common Share for a price of $0.35 per Common Share up until March 29, 2012. The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to fund product development and for general working capital.

Canaccord will use commercially reasonable efforts to continue its marketing efforts to sell Units, up to a maximum of an aggregate of 4 million Units (including the 3,215,500 Units sold to date).

The securities issued by the Company pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance as required by securities laws and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, as applicable. The securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws, and the securities may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration. This news release does not constitute an offer of securities.
