Radiant Announces Issuance of Secured Debentures and Bonus Shares

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 30, 2009) -


Radiant Energy Corporation (TSX VENTURE:RDT) ("Radiant") announced that it has received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") to complete an issuance (the "Issuance") of $374,000 aggregate principal amount of secured debentures maturing two years from the date of their issue and carrying an interest rate of 12% per annum (the "Debentures"). The Debentures will be secured by a first charge on the assets of Radiant and its U.S. operating subsidiary, Radiant Aviation Services, Inc. Radiant shall have the option, under certain conditions, to pay interest owing pursuant to the Debentures in common shares of Radiant, subject to approval from the TSXV. Additionally, as a bonus to the participating lenders acquiring the Debentures, Radiant will issue four of its common shares to the lenders for every $1.00 invested in the Debentures (the "Bonus Shares"), for a total issuance of 1,496,000 Bonus Shares.

A company controlled by John Marsh and a company controlled by Gregory O'Hara, each a director of Radiant and each of whom beneficially owns or controls over 10% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Radiant, invested in $374,000 aggregate principal amount of Debentures (collectively, the "Insider Loans"). Each Insider Loan and the related issuance of Bonus Shares constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Radiant is relying on an exemption to the minority shareholder approval requirement of MI 61-101 as the Insider Loans are being entered into in response to the financial difficulties of Radiant. The Issuance, including the Insider Loans and the issuance of Bonus Shares, was approved by Radiant's independent directors. Radiant's independent directors have also reviewed the terms of the Issuance with management and have determined that such terms are reasonable in the circumstances, the Issuance will improve the financial condition of Radiant and the Issuance is in the best interests of Radiant. The issuance of Bonus Shares to each of Messrs. Marsh and O'Hara has not materially affected the percentage of securities of Radiant beneficially owned and controlled by these individuals.

The net proceeds of the Issuance will be used to address Radiant's immediate working capital needs while it continues to further its marketing and sales initiatives in respect of its Radiant Deicing Systems. The infusion of cash is expected to have initial short-term benefits, but Radiant's business and affairs are not otherwise expected to be significantly impacted by the Issuance.

The Bonus Shares issued in conjunction with the Issuance will be subject to a four-month hold period under applicable securities laws and the policies of the TSXV.
