Logistec Corporation Acquires Sydney Coal Railway Inc.

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) MONTREAL, QUEBEC, November 3 / MARKET WIRE/ --

Logistec Corporation (TSX: LGT.A) (TSX: LGT.B), a diversified cargo handler in eastern Canadian and U.S. ports, today announced that it has acquired, directly and indirectly, from Quebec Railway Corporation Inc. ("QRC") all of the issued and outstanding shares and inter-company debt of Sydney Coal Railway Inc. ("SCR") for a consideration partly paid in cash at closing with the balance being payable upon distributions of proceeds of the intended disposition of QRC's other assets but no later than twelve months following the closing of the SCR purchase.


Logistec Corporation owns a participation in QRC representing 16.2% of all issued and outstanding shares, on a fully diluted basis. It is expected that the disposition of QRC's remaining assets will be completed before the end of the 2nd quarter of 2009. The aggregate net cash disbursement by Logistec as a result of the SCR transaction and the receipt of its pro rata portion of the proceeds from the disposition of QRC's remaining assets is expected to be approximately $11 million, after off-sets, mostly incurred in fiscal year 2008.

SCR operates a 22.5 kilometres short-line railway and provides service for the transportation, storage, warehousing and delivery of coal shipments from the international coaling piers on Sydney Harbour in Sydney, Nova Scotia to the Lingan Generating Station, a coal-fired electrical generating station near New Waterford, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The latter is owned and operated by Nova Scotia Power Incorporated ("NSPI"), a subsidiary of Emera Inc., under a ten year service agreement with Logistec Stevedoring Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Logistec Corporation. SCR also maintains an interchange connection with the North American railway network at Sydney where it connects to the Cape Breton and Central Nova Scotia Railway.
