Raymor Announces the Closing of a Private Investment Offer of $6,500,000

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 5, 2010) - Raymor Industries Inc. ("Raymor" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:RAR) is pleased to announce that, following the approval of the Courts and obtaining the required exemptions from the Autorite des marches financiers, the Alberta Securities Commission and the British Columbia Securities Commission, it has closed the previously announced private investment offer in Raymor (the "Transaction") by Georges Durst, Rolland Veilleux and another investor who joined the buying group (collectively, the "Buyer") in the amount of $6,500,000 and related restructuring transactions, including the cancellation of the issued and outstanding common shares of Raymor for no consideration.

As previously announced in the press releases dated December 7, 2009 and January 14, 2010, the Buyer subscribed for new common shares of the Corporation for a consideration of $6,500,000 less the total amount of the new preferred shares of the Corporation which have been issued subject to the following: holders of senior and subordinated secured debt (convertible debentures) as well as holders of demand notes were entitled to elect to receive at closing either (i) a corresponding number of new preferred shares, priced at $1 per share up to the amount of their debt, including principal and accrued and unpaid interest; or (ii) a cash payment equal to the amount of their debt, including principal and accrued and unpaid interest. The preferred shares are non-voting, non-participating, with a cumulative dividend of 4%, and redeemable at the paid-up capital plus any unpaid dividend.

Since all common shares that were listed and held by the public have been cancelled, an application to delist such common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V") has been filed with the TSX-V. Furthermore, the Corporation has filed an application to cease to be a reporting issuer with the Autorite des marches financier, the Alberta Securities Commission and the British Columbia Securities Commission.
