Megastar Provides Clarification Regarding New Distribution Record Date

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 23, 2010) - Megastar Development Corporation ("Megastar", the "Company" or "MDV") (TSX VENTURE:MDV)(FRANKFURT:M5Q) today provided clarification regarding its recent announcement of a new record date for the distribution (the "Distribution Record Date") of the common shares of Eloro Resources Ltd. (the "Eloro Shares") under the terms of the Company's shareholder approved arrangement (the "Arrangement").

The Distribution Record Date was previously set for December 21, 2010 and, in consultation with the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), was required to be reset to January 7, 2011 in order to comply with Exchange policies applicable to distributions characterized as dividends. Additionally, the Ex-dividend date, the date as of which a purchaser of Megastar shares will not be entitled to receive any Eloro Shares pursuant to the Arrangement, has been set for January 4, 2011. As a consequence, the last date that shareholders of Megastar will be entitled to any distribution of Eloro shares will be for acquisitions made on the trading day prior to the Ex-dividend date.
