Catalytic Solutions, Inc. is an advanced material science company that creates and supplies catalysts for motor vehicle and power generation applications and has developed catalysts for chemical manufacturing applications, all are designed to deliver high value to customers. The Company's proprietary MPC(R) technology enables CSI to produce catalysts with superior performance, proven durability and cost effectiveness for motor vehicles, power generation and chemical manufacturing. CSI has developed catalysts which contain significantly less platinum group metals (PGMs) than competing catalysts. PGMs are the dominant cost component of most catalysts, and reducing their usage provides significant cost savings to the customer. The Company has established manufacturing competence that meets automotive customers' most stringent requirements. The Company has proven its technical and manufacturing competence by supplying in excess of 5.5 million parts to Honda, Ford, General Motors and Car Sound in the last three years. Catalyst manufacturing is an approximately $12.6 billion per year global industry of which $2 billion is attributable to the motor vehicle catalyst sector, $1.1 billion to the power generation catalyst sector and $9.5 billion to the chemical manufacturing catalyst sector. CSI's growth strategy is focused on targeting industries and specific markets and applications where its technology will create a distinct competitive advantage. The Company intends to continue to supply the light duty vehicle market with a focus on sales growth in diesel applications while maintaining a strong base for the business in petrol engine catalytic converters. New markets and applications in heavy duty diesel, power generation and chemical manufacturing are providing growth opportunities for the Company's versatile technology platforms. The Company intends to expand its capabilities and market reach through opportunistic acquisitions that will create more effective market and sales channels to sell more catalysts.
Commenting on the Placing, Charles Call, CEO of CSI, said:"Cost competitive catalyst technology is being demanded by the automotive andpower generation industries to address the issue of emissions. CSI's MPC(R) technology has the ability to provide a wide number of solutions at lower cost compared to a number of leading suppliers - and we look forward to the challenge of delivering leading technology to our customers over the next few years. We are delighted at the response of the institutions to the Placing and we will use the funds to build a significant presence in Europe in the near future."

A catalyst is a substance which facilitates a chemical reaction without beingaltered by the reaction. CSI developed and owns intellectual property rightsto a novel technology for creating and manufacturing catalysts for a wide rangeof applications. This technology is protected by issued patents, patent applications and trade secrets.
Known as Mixed Phase Catalyst (MPC(R)), CSI's technology involves the self-assembly of a ceramic oxide matrix with atoms of catalytic metals precisely positioned within three-dimensional structures. The selection and spatial configuration of the compounds, or phases, comprising MPC(R) materials gives these catalysts two critical attributes which differentiate them from competing products:
1) superior stability allows MPC(R) catalysts to withstand extreme temperaturesover long periods of time without degrading materially;
2) base metal activation allows certain base metals to be used instead of costly PGMs without compromising catalytic performance.
The Directors believe there are a number of reasons why the Company represents an attractive investment proposition:
1) commercially established proprietary technology for high value catalysts;
2) blue chip customers;
3) barriers to entry limit the number of potential competitors;
4) strong market growth prospects;
5) strong technical and commercial management capable of increasing turnover and expanding margins.
USE OF PROCEEDS OF THE PLACING
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Placing as follows:
1) to finance the acquisition of Applied Utility Systems,
2) for development of new manufacturing facilities;
3) to fund ongoing research and development efforts;
4) to terminate certain warrants to purchase Common Shares held by Ford;
5) to enhance the Company's sales and marketing infrastructure;
6) to provide funds for general corporate purposes and working capital;
7)for opportunistic acquisitions that complement or expand CSI's business which are in line with its strategy.
The Board believes that having a strong balance sheet will improve CSI's standing with current and potential customers.
CSITM currently manufactures coated substrates at the Company's facility in Oxnard, California.
CSI's current facility is large enough to house production lines capable of producing 4 to 5 million coated substrates per year, which is sufficient to meet projected demand through 2008.
On 28 August 2006, the Company agreed (through a wholly owned subsidiary) to purchase the AUS Business, a business based in California which researches, designs, develops and sells products and services relating to the clean and efficient use of fossil fuels outside of their use in motor vehicles. The consideration for the purchase of the AUS Business is the sum of $6,250,000 payable at stages over the next three years and an additional earn out amount based on the revenues and profits of the AUS Business calculated from 2010 to 2020. The total consideration for the AUS Business is subject to an aggregate maximum cap of $28,000,000. The Directors have valued the AUS Business using reasonable forecasts at approximately $24,000,000. The transaction is a key element of the Company's growth strategy and gives the Company the opportunity to grow its business in the power generation and industrial boiler market.

|Any views on the deal with Mountcashel....overall, I am still positive on this one. Excellent Chief Executive....a real dealmaker! With more firepower this could be interesting in a couple of years. Ridiculous price now.. I might add some more. As always DYOR!|
|This company's share price is starting to show a bit of "bounce" on the back of some buying activity. Seems an entrepeneurial Aim small cap adviser this one. Noticed that they will be handling the Lo-Q float and seem to be doing well on picking up more clients. What impresses me about this company is the small team and low cost base - set to out-perform many other advisers and brokers in my view...valued at less than £4m looks cheap since profitable and over half of market cap in cash. As always DYOR, but when conditions improve this stock could be one of the winners.|
