TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 4, 2007) - Mr. Sasha Jacob, Vice-Chairman and CEO, Jacob & Company Securities Inc. ("Jacob & Company"), today announced that John McIlveen, a veteran securities analyst specializing in the renewable power sector, joined Jacob & Company. Jacob & Company is an independent investment bank providing underwriting and financial advisory services to companies in the renewable power and infrastructure sectors.

"I'm very pleased that John is joining our team. John brings over 20 years experience in merchant banking and public equities research. He was an early adopter of renewable power and a pioneering advocate of geothermal power," Mr. Jacob said.

"This is a very exciting opportunity," Mr. McIlveen said. "In just a few months Jacob & Company has been involved in more renewable power transactions than any firm working in the sector that I am aware of. Jacob & Company's people were on the scene when the sector was just emerging, but is now growing by leaps and bounds."
