Newlook Industries Corp. Announces Late Filing of Annual Financial Statements

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 1, 2009) - Newlook Industries Corp. (TSX VENTURE:NLI) ("Newlook" or the "Corporation") provides this Notice of Default further to National Policy 12-203 ("NP 12-203") advising that Newlook will not be filing its annual financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2008 on or before the prescribed deadline of April 30, 2009. The Corporation has made an application as prescribed under the foregoing policy requesting that a Management Cease Trade Order be imposed in respect of this late filing, rather than an Issuer Cease Trade Order.

Newlook's failure to file its audited financial statements within the prescribed period of time was due to two subsidiaries of the Corporation being placed into receivership by a secured creditor on January 9, 2009. The court appointed receiver manager of the subsidiaries obtained court approval for the sale of all of the assets on April 28, 2009. To our knowledge the sale transactions as of this date have not closed but are expected to do so imminently. The period of time between court approval on April 28, 2009 and filing deadline for the financial statements on April 30, 2009 was insufficient to consider all accounting and GAAP implications to the year end December 31, 2008 financial statements.. The audit is expected to be completed by May 14, 2009.

Newlook fully expects to file its financial statements for the fiscal year end December 31, 2008 on or prior to May 14, 2009. Further, Newlook confirms that it intends to satisfy the requirements to file the appropriate Default Status Reports as prescribed by NP 12-203 so long as it remains in default of its requirements to file its financial statements within the prescribed period of time.

Newlook confirms that there are no insolvency proceedings against the Corporation as of the date herein. Newlook also confirms that there is no other material information concerning the affairs of Newlook that have not been generally disclosed as of the date herein.
