SMS Equipment Inc.: News Release

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 26, 2010) - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Stephen Brosseau, along with two other Albertans who were killed in a plane crash Friday afternoon near Sundre, Alberta around 2 pm local time. Stephen was pursuing his pilot's license and he was in the process of purchasing a light aircraft in partnership with another individual. The accident is under investigation and many details are not yet known. We do know that Stephen was excited about flying and that he was pursuing his passion and his dream.

Stephen will be dearly missed by his significant other, Janet and her two children, his mother, step father and four brothers. We are awaiting information from Stephen's family regarding funeral arrangements. Our deepest condolences are extended to his family and friends.

Stephen worked for SMS Equipment Inc. since 1994 in various sales positions and has been the General Manager of Sales for mining equipment since 2001. Stephen was currently working from SMS's Head Office in Acheson, Alberta. Over the past several years, Stephen developed great relationships and will be missed by many people both at SMS and throughout our network of customers and suppliers.

In consideration for the Brosseau family in this time of grieving, we ask that the media and all refrain from contacting the family. Our prayers and thoughts are with family and friends.
