MagIndustries Corp. Announces the Completion of Due Diligence and Extension of Exclusivity Period

TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2009) - MagIndustries Corp. ("MagIndustries" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MAA) is pleased to announce that the Company received confirmation today that the legal, technical and financial due diligence with respect to the investment in the Company contemplated by the Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") signed June 12, 2009, as described in its press releases of June 12, June 15 and July 31, 2009 has been completed. No material issues have been raised.

The MOU provides for a proposed purchase of 400 million common shares of MagIndustries by a large Chinese based multi-national company (the "Subscriber") at a price of Cdn$ 0.70 per common share (the "Investment"). The Company has granted an extension of the exclusivity period under the MOU to September 25, 2009 to accommodate the Subscriber's review and decision process.

The Company has been advised that the Subscriber has submitted the mandatory external approval request to the government of the Peoples Republic of China for an indication of "non-objection" to the Investment.

In meetings in Beijing in the first week of August between the Company and the Subscriber corporate governance principles for the effective management of the Company for the benefit of all shareholders were presented. These principles were included in draft definitive documentation consisting of a Subscription Agreement and Shareholders' Agreement submitted to the Subscriber.

Closing of the transaction contemplated by the MOU continues to be subject to a number of conditions and approvals which include, among other conditions, approval of the transaction by MagIndustries' Board of Directors, approval by a majority of MagIndustries shareholders at a special meeting of shareholders, approval by the Subscriber's Board of Directors and the approval of all relevant regulatory and government authorities. The Investment is also conditional on the arrangement of debt financing for the completion of Phase I of the Company's Kouilou Potash Project in the Republic of Congo, as a complement or alternative to debt financing that could be available to the Company from other sources, on terms agreeable to MagIndustries. Given these conditions there is no assurance that the transaction will be completed.
