TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 27, 2011) -Semcan Inc. (TSX VENTURE:STT) ("Semcan or the "Company") today announced that it has successfully closed the second and final tranche of its previously-announced financing.

On April 26, 2011, the Company closed the second and final tranche of the financing for gross proceeds of $483,322 through a private placement to accredited investors (collectively, the "Lenders") of a secured convertible loan (the "Loan"). The total amount raised under the Loan in two tranches was $2,497,842. The terms of the Loan were announced in the Company's press releases of March 7, 2011, March 23, 2011, April 7, 2011 and April 15, 2011.

The net proceeds of the Loan will be used to repay $100,000 of existing debt and for working capital purposes.

The Loan interest rate is 10% per annum, paid quarterly in cash. The term is three (3) years, with the Company having the right to repay the Loan in cash after the first twelve (12) months of the term upon providing the Lenders with forty-five (45) days' written notice. Any such early repayment must apply to the full outstanding balance of the Loan. The early repayment privilege will be available to the Company only if the Company's common shares have traded at or above $0.25 per share for the twenty (20) business days prior to the date of the Company providing notice to the Lenders of its intent to repay the Loan. The Loan is convertible in full or in part at any time until maturity into units (the "Units"), at the option of the Lenders at a conversion price of $0.14 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one (1) common share and one-half (½) of a common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable to receive one (1) common share at a price of $0.14 per share, with the Warrants expiring at the original maturity date of the Loan.

The securities issued pursuant to the Loan are subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance. The Loan is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
