(VANCOUVER, Nov. 5, 2009) - Greenscape Capital Group Inc.
(TSXV: - GRN) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter of
intent (the "LOI") to acquire 100 percent of the issued and outstanding shares
of Greenswitch Capital Ltd. ("Green.Switch") via a share transaction based on
Earnings Before Income Tax, Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA").
Green.Switch has recently signed two major environmental (energy retrofit)
contracts, one with Robbins Parking Services, headquartered in Victoria, B.C.,
Canada and one with Queen Charlotte Lodge at Naden Harbour near Masset, B.C.,
Robbins Parking Services
This full service contract includes assessment, target setting, monitoring and
implementation of energy saving equipment and strategies provided to Robbins
Parking Services and its principal subsidiary, Platinum Parking, headquartered
in Dallas, Texas, which manages 55,000 parking stalls across North America and
is Canada's second largest parking management company. Robbins is a prominent
brand on Vancouver Island with 200 lots and facilities.
The initial phase of the Robbins contract is underway. Site assessment and
implementation has commenced and equipment has been ordered for first 20
installations, to be completed by the end of 2009. The satisfactory completion
of this first phase is expected to foster rapid expansion of the program.
Positive discussions with Robbins and others in the North American parking
industry have created short-term projections to retrofit more than 200 lots.
This work within the industry is expected to achieve in excess of C$5 million
in revenue. Not only is this positive for Green.Switch, but it enables parking
operators to market a "green" image - attractive to consumers and property
owners - saving money while improving the facilities.
The parking lot segment of the market consists of thousands of parking
facilities throughout Canada and the United States. Parking lot management and
ownership is a multi-billion dollar industry and energy is the largest
variable operating cost. Green.Switch has developed a unique methodology to
assess, retrofit and monitor upgrades to lots and as such is uniquely
positioned to benefit. Through greening their operations, lot owners are able
to realize significant energy savings. Green.Switch is currently negotiating
environmental energy saving contracts with other parking lot operators.
Queen Charlotte Lodge ("QCL")
This world renowned salmon fishing resort is located on the north tip of the
Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia. The lodge is far beyond the reach
of roads and utilities and all services are self sufficient. Supplies come to
the nearest town (Masset) by air and then by boat or helicopter to the lodge.
Energy is one of the resort's most costly budget items. The goal is to achieve
a dramatic upgrade in facilities and services, at no cost to the client.
Green.Switch recently completed a detailed review of the lodge's operations
and has recommended approximately $895,000 in upgrades to achieve substantial
energy cost savings. This contract has been executed and is expected to
generate revenues in excess of $1.7 million. QCL is a Canadian icon,
attracting each year a steady parade of top global CEOs. It is monitored
closely by similar high-end and isolated adventure resorts world-wide.
Green.Switch's unparalleled program, including expertise in alternate energy
sources, should further enhance QCL's industry leadership and renown.
Terms of the LOI are based on a share exchange between Greenscape and
Green.Switch whereby Green.Switch has the ability to earn up to two million
common shares and its Director a further 200,000 stock options in Greenscape.
The terms of the LOI are as follows:

following financial quarter EBITDA.

statements of Green.Switch, Greenscape will issue from treasury
150,000 common shares and 15,000 stock options.
