TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/24/14 -- MCM Capital One Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ZGN.P) ("MCM"), a Capital Pool Company, wishes to provide further details concerning the letter of intent (the "LOI") dated October 3, 2013 for the acquisition of Enerdynamic Hybrid Technologies Inc. ("EHT"), previously announced on October 9, 2013. The acquisition, if completed, will constitute MCM's qualifying transaction pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "Exchange").

The Proposed Qualifying Transaction

The acquisition of EHT (the "Acquisition") is to be completed no later than January 31, 2014 as a share exchange through the issuance of one common share of MCM for each common share of EHT, and one warrant to purchase an MCM common share for each warrant to purchase an EHT common share. The exercise price and term of the MCM warrants will be the same as those for the EHT warrants being purchased.

It is a condition of closing the Acquisition that EHT will raise at least $4,000,000 through the First Private Placement and the Second Private Placement described below. Completion of the Acquisition is also conditional on the execution of a definitive share exchange agreement to be negotiated among the parties, the satisfactory completion of due diligence, approval of the Acquisition by the directors of MCM and EHT, approval by the shareholders of MCM of the name change and appointment of the directors described below and Exchange acceptance of the Acquisition.

The acquisition by MCM of all of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of EHT is not a Non-Arm's Length Qualifying Transaction under the policies of the Exchange. The Acquisition will not be subject to approval of the shareholders of MCM. However, it is a condition of the Acquisition that the shareholders of MCM shall have approved the appointment of the directors described below and the change of MCM's name to Enerdynamic Hybrid Technologies Corp. or such other name as EHT and MCM may agree upon.
