Newlook to Evaluate Clean Energy Collaboration

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2009) - Newlook Industries Corp. ("Newlook") (TSX VENTURE:NLI) announces that it will evaluate a proposal to assist Sunbay Energy Corporation ("Sunbay") in the development of a clean energy project in Chapleau, Ontario. Sunbay is a private corporation organized to pursue a series of opportunities in plasma-enhanced gasification projects in Canada.

Pursuant to the terms of a Right of First Refusal Agreement signed between Newlook and Sunbay on October 6, 2008 and as previously announced on October 7, 2008, Newlook has a right to provide seed financing with respect to any new projects entered into by Sunbay. As such, Newlook has recently received an offer from Sunbay to collaborate in a proposed wood biomass energy project currently in the early stages of development. Newlook will explore the merits of this proposal to determine a course of action and extent of involvement. Newlook confirms that it is not bound to any conditions relating to Sunbay's Chapleau prospect at this time.

To date, Newlook has invested $225,000 as debt in a Sunbay subsidiary, Sunbay Port Hope Inc. Newlook has not made any additional investments in Sunbay or its parent, PowerPlay Energy Corp. ("PowerPlay"). Newlook currently holds no equity interest in either Sunbay or PowerPlay, nor has issued any securities to either company.
