C.A. Bancorp Inc. Announces Investment in Digital Payment Technologies Corp.

C.A. Bancorp Inc. is pleased to announce a $3,000,000 investment and conditional commitment for an additional $3,000,000 in Digital Payment Technologies Corp. ("Digital"), a privately held company based in Vancouver, British Columbia.
dpt-logo.gifDigital is a leader in electronic parking systems, specializing in the design, manufacture, and distribution of multi-space pay station hardware, software, and online management solutions. Digital provides its customers with reliable, flexible, easy-to-use systems that increase revenues, lower costs and dramatically increase management control of parking assets.

Established in 1997, Digital has developed into one of North America's premier manufacturers of on- and off-street electronic parking systems. Digital has sold over 4,000 parking payment stations to private facility operators, institutions, universities and municipalities across North America. In addition, Digital has developed a proprietary web-based back office Enterprise Management System (EMS), which allows customers to manage their businesses more efficiently by reducing servicing and enforcement costs.

The proceeds of C.A. Bancorp's investment will provide Digital with the working capital to capitalize on Digital's backlog of new business and the market demand for new parking system installations while enhancing Digital's ability to meet customer delivery expectations.

"There is a significant market opportunity that Digital is well positioned to benefit from, as municipalities, universities and private operators look to maximize parking revenues and drive efficiencies throughout their entire parking operations. We are excited about the opportunities in front of Digital and its strong management team," said Mark MacDonald, Managing Director, Private Investments at C.A. Bancorp. "This growth capital investment will provide C.A. Bancorp with exposure to a market leading company in a high growth industry with substantial market demand. Digital's earnings profile includes revenues from new parking systems sales as well as recurring revenues from servicing and transaction fees on existing installed systems. We are confident that Digital's management team can execute on its business plan which should generate a strong return on our investment."

"Digital takes great satisfaction in completing this latest round of financing with C.A. Bancorp, particularly in today's volatile financial markets. We view this financing as a testament to the strength of our new partner C.A. Bancorp, our people, customers, suppliers, technology partners and investors, and our vision for the parking industry," said Andrew Scott, Chief Executive Officer of Digital. "C.A. Bancorp's investment will enable Digital to meet its short and long term strategic and tactical objectives including working capital for rapid sale growth, increased market development in North America and internationally, new product development and expansion of services and support for our customers."

The Investment

C.A. Bancorp has advanced $3,000,000 and it is expected that an additional $3,000,000, at C.A. Bancorp's discretion, will be advanced to finance Digital's growth.
