Megola Inc. Offers Shareholders the Opportunity to Exchange Common Stock for Voting Preferred Stock at $0.20 per Common Share

POINT EDWARD, ON--(Marketwire - April 20, 2009) - Megola Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MGOA) is pleased to announce that the Company's Board of Directors has approved an offer to exchange Company Common Stock at a price of $0.20 for every common share exchanged for shares of the Company's Series A Convertible Preferred Stock.

Purpose of the Exchange Offer

The purpose of this exchange offer is to exchange any and all of the company's outstanding common stock for Series A Convertible Preferred Stock. The exchange offer is being made as part of a plan to reduce the number of issued and outstanding shares of common stock available that trade on the open market.

"The Board believes that our current share price is not representative of the true value of the Company and that our stock should be trading at higher levels, so therefore we are offering to exchange the Company's Common Stock based on a value of $0.20 per share. The Company has undergone several significant changes with the addition of its Hartindo Product Line. This exchange program is the first step in restructuring the Company's common shares. Although we believe that a share exchange program is in the best interests of Megola and its shareholders," stated Joel Gardner, C.E.O of Megola, Inc, "we are not making any recommendation regarding whether our shareholders should tender or refrain from tendering their Common Stock for exchange in the exchange offer."

About Offering

For every twenty five (25) common shares of the Company's Common Stock tendered in the exchange, shareholders will receive one (1) share of the Company's newly created Series 'A' Convertible Preferred Stock, valued at $5.00 per share. The holders of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock shall have one-hundred (100) votes for each full share Series A Convertible Preferred Stock. The company will be completing the exchange based upon the common stock value of $0.20 per share. The deadline for accepting the exchange offer and delivery of certificates to the Company's Transfer Agent is by the close of business, 4 p.m. EDT on May 29, 2009 and will only be offered to shareholders of record as of 4 p.m. EDT, Friday, April 24, 2009.

Shareholders do not have to tender all of their Common Stock to participate in the exchange offer. Shareholder may choose to tender in the exchange offer all or any portion of the Common Stock held providing that a minimum of ten thousand (10,000) common shares for exchange is tendered.

Shareholders who do not participate will still own their Common Stock and will still be able to trade on the open market.

Shareholders as of market close April 24, 2009 will receive a mailing from the company with all instructions. After market close on April 24, 2009 all material and instructions will be available on Megola's web site http://www.megola.com or a shareholder may call or email as per information at bottom of press release.

Holding Period and Converting Preferred Back to Common

No conversion of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock to Common Stock can occur until after a holding period of twelve (12) months from May 29, 2009. Thereafter, at shareholder option, shareholder may convert the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock into Common Stock. For purposes of conversion, the value of each share of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock will be deemed to be $5.00. The number of shares of Common Stock to be received upon a conversion will be based on a value of $0.20 per share or the value of the Common Stock at the time of conversion, whichever is less. That value will be based on the average closing bid price of the Common Stock for each of the ten (10) consecutive trading days immediately prior to the date of conversion. The Company also announces that each Preferred Shareholder shall also be granted Warrants to purchase up to ten (10) common shares of Megola, Inc. Stock at a price of $0.45 for every one (1) Series A Convertible Preferred Stock held. To qualify for and to exercise these Warrants the Shareholder must still hold the Series 'A' Preferred Shares and must exercise the Warrant within a 24-month period. The holders of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock shall have one hundred (100) votes for each full share Series A Convertible Preferred Stock.
