("Extenway") (TSX VENTURE:EY) is pleased to announce that it has agreed to undertake a prospectus-exempted private placement of Convertible Debentures for a minimum gross proceeds of $3M and a maximum gross proceeds of $6M (the "Offering"). Extenway is further pleased to announce that it has received a signed subscription agreement from a major institutional fund manager, pursuant to which the fund is committed to invest $1.5M in the Offering, and that another investor has committed to invest $500,000 in the Offering, subject to the terms and conditions set out herein. The Offering is expected to close no later than November 1st, 2012 (the "Closing Date").

The Convertible Debentures will be unsecured, will mature on August 31, 2017 and will bear an annual compounded interest rate of 12%.

The Convertible Debentures will be convertible into common shares of Extenway (the "Common Shares") at a conversion price of $0.13 if the conversion is effected no later than at 5:00 pm on April 29, 2016, or $0.17 if the conversion is effected thereafter, subject to customary adjustment provisions.

In the event that, at any time after August 31, 2015, (a) Extenway issues Common Shares at a price per share equal to or greater than $0.25 (subject to customary adjustments), or (b) the Current Price (as defined in the Convertible Debenture) of its Common Shares is greater than $0.30 (subject to customary adjustments), Extenway will be entitled to buyback the Convertible Debentures prior to their maturity date for a purchase price equal to the principal thereof plus all accrued and unpaid interest thereon.

  1. the conversion price of the Convertible Debentures is lower than the price per Common Share of Extenway determined pursuant to such Liquidity Event (the "Offered Price"), the Convertible Debentures will be automatically converted into Common Shares of Extenway at the applicable conversion price;

The proceeds of the Offering will be used for working capital purposes. The private placement is subject to compliance with applicable securities legislation and to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
