(TSX: CWA) ("Coast") announced today that a special meeting (the "Special Meeting") of shareholders of Coast will be held on May 21, 2014 to consider the ratification of the shareholder rights plan of Coast dated March 4, 2014 (the "Rights Plan") which was adopted by the Board of Directors of Coast in response to the offer by CWAL Investments Ltd.

The Rights Plan is subject to ratification by independent shareholders of Coast by June 30, 2014.
Coast will provide further details in its information circular for the Special Meeting which will be mailed to shareholders of record at April 16, 2014.
Coast is a leading independent supplier of major household appliances and accessories to builders and developers of multi-family and single-family housing, and to retail customers. Founded in 1978, Coast operates stores across the four western provinces and in the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario, as well as a network of warehouse distribution centres strategically situated to serve these locations.
