SelectCore Secures New Long-Term Financing & Equity Capital

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 27, 2011) - SelectCore Ltd. (the "Corporation" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SCG), a prepaid telecom and financial services transaction processor for the under-banked consumer market is pleased to announce that it has secured new long-term debt and equity to improve the Company's balance sheet and fund its working capital and growth initiatives.

The Corporation has entered into a Letter of Intent with its senior lender, Windsor Bancorp Limited Partnership ("Windsor"), whereby Windsor has agreed to provide the Company with a new long-term Convertible Debt Facility. Pursuant to the terms of the Letter of Intent, Windsor will advance a minimum of $3 million with the option of increasing the amount to $5 million upon the Corporation meeting certain financial covenants. The term of the new facility will be 24 months with the option of extending for two additional one-year terms. The credit facility will bear an interest rate equal to the prime rate charged by the Royal Bank of Canada plus 9% per annum. Under the terms of the new facility, Windsor shall have the option of converting a portion or the entire principal amount into common shares in the capital of the Corporation at a conversion price of $0.35. The Company however, has the option to pay down the principle balance to $3 million by the fifth month and $2 million by the eighteenth month thereby reducing the potential conversion amount. The closing of this facility is subject to regulatory approval and the execution of the loan agreements.

Further to the recently announced proposed Private Placement, the Company plans to close on the first tranche of the financing on or about the end of this month, thereby increasing the amount of equity raised over and above the proceeds from the exercise of options and warrants. The non-brokered private placement has been priced at $0.30 per unit with each unit being comprised of one (1) common share and one (1) common share purchase warrant exercisable at a price of $0.35 per share for a period of 24 months.

As a vote of confidence, SelectCore also announces that it has so far secured approximately $1,500,000 in new equity through the exercise of warrants and options by its lenders, management, directors and staff. The Corporation also confirms that there has been no insider selling. Management remains dedicated to the vision and future growth of the company and building long-term shareholder value.

Keith McKenzie, Chief Executive Officer of SelectCore commented "We are pleased with the progress of our new financing efforts to date. This new credit facility will allow the company to utilize new equity proceeds in order to execute on key initiatives that have been recently announced."
