VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 16, 2013) - Palladon Ventures Ltd.

Palladon became a PFIC on March 15, 2010, when it executed the Satisfaction and Settlement agreement that resulted in Palladon owning less than 25% of CML Holdings, Inc.

In order to provide affected shareholders with additional information, Palladon has posted on its website at an important tax notice to U.S. Shareholders, entitled: Tax Issues for U.S. Shareholders_April 2013 (the "Notice"). The Notice is provided for shareholders who are United States persons for purposes of the Internal Revenue Code ("U.S. Shareholders") and is not relevant to other shareholders.
